Uniform Guidance

Federally Sponsored Funds

Purchases using federally sponsored funds must be made in accordance with The Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance). (2 C.F.R. pt. 200).

While the following procedures highlight important requirements of Uniform Guidance, they are not all-inclusive. BYU expects all employees who make purchases using federal sponsored funds to be familiar with and follow the procurement requirements outlined in 2 C.F.R. §§ 200.318-.326.

The Uniform Guidance requires federal sponsored programs to review transactions meeting certain criteria to determine if they are allowable and allocable. The purpose of these federal guidelines is to verify that all expenses charged to a research project have a “direct benefit” and should be charged as “direct costs” to the project. The federal sponsored program must also maintain records sufficient to detail the history of procurement. These records will include, but are not necessarily limited to, the following: rationale for the method of procurement, selection of contract type, contractor selection or rejection, and the basis for the contract price.
