Federal Research Regulations and Sponsor Policies

Main Content

All federal grant funds are subject to guidelines set by the White House's Office of Management and Budget (OMB); see below for links to the OMB circulars that apply to educational institutions. 

Additionally, federal grants will be awarded with agency-specific rules.  See below for links to guidelines for specific federal funding agencies.

For questions about these guidelines prior to award, contact your OSPA research project specialist.  For questions after the award has been made and your grant account has been set up, contact your assignee in Grant and Contract Accounting.
