The information on this page provides guidance on compliance with the federal Uniform Guidance procurement requirements (2 C.F.R. Part 200, Subpart D) which went into effect on July 1, 2018.  These requirements apply to most categories of federal grant and loan funds.  When spending federal grant and loan funds, local governments should confirm with their federal grantor agency whether the Uniform Guidance requirements apply and what, if any, additional requirements the federal grantor agency has imposed. Local governments also should consult with their attorneys and autidors to ensure full compliance with the Uniform Guidance requirements.

NOTE:  EFFECTIVE JUNE 20, 2018, OMB HAS INCREASED THE UNIFORM GUIDANCE BID THRESHOLDS.  THE MICRO-PURCHASE THRESHOLD IS INCREASED FROM $3,500 TO $10,000, AND THE SIMPLIFIED ACQUISITION THRESHOLDS IS INCREASED FROM $150,000 TO $250,000.  A COPY OF OMB MEMORANDUM M-18-18 IS AVAILABLE IN THE PROCUREMENT REQUIREMENTS SUMMARIES SECTION OF THIS PAGE. THE RESOURCES ON THIS PAGE HAVE BEEN UPDATED TO REFLECT THE NEW BID THRESHOLDS.
