The Queen’s Medical Center (QMC) hereby elects to utilize the grace period established in the Office of Management & Budget Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards; final Rule – 2 CFR Chapter I, Chapter II, Part 200, et al. also known as the Uniform Guidance (UG) for July 1, 2015 (FY 16) and continue use of Circular A-110.

Excerpt from § 200.110 (a): “For the procurement standards in §§ 200.317 – 200.326, non-Federal entities may continue to comply with the procurement standards in previous OMB guidance (superseded by this part as described in § 200.104) for two additional fiscal years after this part goes into effect.
