Dear Grant and Business Managers,
I am forwarding a 5-minute video from the National Council of University Research Administrators (NCURA), which does a nice job summarizing fundamental regulations that govern federal awards. Links to regulations mentioned in the video are provided below for your convenience.
Federal Grant & Cooperative Agreement Act of 1977 (31 USC Chapter 63) – law that serves as in instruction for when the government should use procurement contracts, grant agreements or cooperative agreements
Federal Acquisition Regulation (48 CFR) – government rules for acquisition of goods and services
Cost Accounting Standards that apply to institutions of higher education
NCURA publishes weekly short videos on various pre-award, post-award and compliance topics, which can be viewed any time by visiting https://www.youtube.com/user/NCURA1959 It is an excellent free resource available to all research administrators.
Have a great day.
