Sponsored Programs Administration Regarding Federal Funds (Procurement Guidelines Update)
CSUB will continue to follow the Procurement Standards required under OMB Circular A-110 (Subpart C, Sections 40-48) on federally funded awards from December 26, 2014 through June 30, 2016.

The campus is not required to follow the new Procurement Standards Sections (2 CFR 200, Subpart D .318-.326) until the end of the first full fiscal year following the implementation date of December 26, 2014 - which means the effective date for compliance with 2 CFR 200.318-.326 for the CSU will be July 1, 2016.
