OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET

2 CFR Part 200


Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit 
Requirements for Federal Awards

AGENCY: Executive Office of the President, Office of Management and 
Budget.

ACTION: Correcting amendment to continue delay of implementation date.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is updating the 
final guidance that appeared in the Federal Register on December 26, 
2013. Guidance on the effective/applicability date is revised to allow 
a grace period of one additional fiscal year for non-Federal entities 
to implement changes to their procurement policies and procedures in 
accordance with guidance on procurement standards. Other requirements 
in the section remain unchanged.

DATES: 
    Effective date: May 17, 2017.
    Implementation date: For all non-Federal entities, there is an 
additional one-year grace period for implementation of the procurement 
standards in 2 CFR 200.317 through 200.326. This means the grace period 
for non-Federal entities extends through December 25, 2017, and the 
implementation date for the procurement standards will start for fiscal 
years beginning on or after December 26, 2017.

    Under the authority of the Chief Financial Officers Act of 1990 (31 
U.S.C. 503), the Office of Management and Budget amends 2 CFR part 200 
as follows:

PART 200--UNIFORM ADMINISTRATIVE REQUIREMENTS, COST PRINCIPLES, AND 
AUDIT REQUIREMENTS FOR FEDERAL AWARDS

0
1. The authority citation for part 200 continues to read as follows:

    Authority: 31 U.S.C. 503.


0
2. In Sec.  200.110, revise paragraph (a) to read as follows:


Sec.  200.110  Effective/applicability date.

    (a) The standards set forth in this part that affect the 
administration of Federal awards issued by Federal awarding agencies 
become effective once implemented by Federal awarding agencies or when 
any future amendment to this part becomes final. Federal awarding 
agencies must implement the policies and procedures applicable to 
Federal awards by promulgating a regulation to be effective by December 
26, 2014, unless different provisions are required by statute or 
approved by OMB. For the procurement standards in Sec. Sec.  200.317 
through 200.326, non-Federal entities may continue to comply with the 
procurement standards in previous OMB guidance (as reflected in Sec.  
200.104) for a total of three fiscal years after this part goes into 
effect. As such, the effective date for implementation of the 
procurement standards for non-Federal entities will start for fiscal 
years beginning on or after December 26, 2017. If a non-Federal entity 
chooses to use the previous procurement standards for all or part of 
these three fiscal years before adopting the procurement standards in 
this part, the non-Federal entity must document this decision in its 
internal procurement policies.
