On March 19 2021, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued Memorandum M-21-20 (PDF).
Appendix 3 of M-21-20 (PDF) provides Federal awarding agencies authority to grant exceptions to recipients affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, as they deem appropriate and to the extent permitted by law. While the flexibilities mirror many of those included in M-20-17 (PDF), in the latest memo, they also apply to recipients with assistance awards not related to COVID-19.
NIH announces a new inbox for inquiries related to changes to Biographical Sketch and Other Support Format page (NOT-OD-21-122). Effective as of this announcement, please send inquiries related to changes to the biographical sketch and other support templates to [email protected].
Updated NSF Award Conditions (PDF), consistent with the revised 2 CFR §200, Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Award, will apply to all new NSF awards and funding amendments to existing awards made on or after November 12, 2020.
