Uniform Guidance for Federal Awards for Tribes

Tribes and other tribal organizations that receive federal awards face many obstacles in order to adhere to grant compliance. The complicated process can require proper oversight and implementation of specific policies.

To ease the administrative burden and reduce the risk of waste, fraud, and abuse, the US government issued The Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards in the Federal Register in December 2014. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) consolidated eight circulars into uniform guidance to eliminate duplicative language so it’s clear how policies differ across entity types. Guidance is frequently updated and available in the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations.

Our professionals can help your tribe and gaming facilities understand how you may be impacted by various guidelines.
