In December 2013, the Office of Management and Budget streamlined the Federal government's guidance on Administrative Guidance, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards in an effort to reduce the administrative burden on non-Federal entities receiving Federal awards while reducing the risk of waste, fraud, and abuse. Oregon State University follows these guidelines in an ongoing effort to align itself with national standards. The document extensively details policy and procedure for aspects including, but not limited to, cost sharing, travel, and participant support costs, as well as definitions of what is considered allowable, allocable, and reasonable costs. The COE Proposal Support team references this document for policy questions, and suggests that PIs and research teams also investigate it when issues arise.
