About 2 CFR 200

2 CFR 200 on the e-CFR is here.

You might find my current study guide for 2 CFR 200 easier to reference.

REVISION HISTORY (most recent on top)

22FEB202186 FR 10439 et seq.
Minor (though clarifying) administrative changes. At § 200.1, a definition for Federal awarding agency was added, and the definition of Oversight agency for audit was revised.
Here is a more detailed synopsis, if you are that interested.

13AUG202085 FR 49506 et seq. (Scroll to 49529; it's a big old doc.)
Sweeping (but mostly minor) changes (section re-numbering, etc.), with the significant changes as follows:

  • New § 200.216 prohibits purchase of certain Chinese telecommunications products (primarily Huawei and ZTE) and services using such products.
  • New § 200.340 adds provision for funder-initiated termination when the award ''no longer effectuates the program goals or agency priorities.''

The specific changes to 2 CFR 200 are on pages 49529-49582 of the FR cited above.
Here is a more detailed synopsis, if you are that interested.

10SEP201580 FR 54407
Minor changes to harmonize sections with concurrent changes to 2 CFR 25. These changes were all subsequently obviated by the sweeping changes at 85 FR 49529, 13AUG2020.

22JUL201580 FR 43308 et seq.
Changes to harmonize sections with concurrent changes to 2 CFR 180.

19DEC201479 FR 75880 et seq.
Interim Final Rule implementing the 26DEC2013 Final Guidance, with a few changes.
Simultaneously, federal awarding agencies published their implementations of it. With few exceptions, the approach has been to codify 2 CFR 200 by reference and to add specific adjustments as required by agency-specific statute and agency policy. In this approach, 2 CFR 200 becomes the agency's statement of the regulation, while the agency's adopting regulation carries any additional requirements. Two examples of this approach for the international development community are USAID's 2 CFR 700 (see Notes on 2 CFR 700)and DOS's 2 CFR 600 (see Notes on 2 CFR 600).

However, HHS elected to restate the guidance in its entirety in its regulation at 45 CFR 75 (see About 45 CFR 75).

26DEC201378 FR 78608 et seq.
Final Guidance on OMB’s complete reform of cost principles, combining Circulars A110, A122 and A133 into 2 CFR 200, scheduled to become effective in DEC 2014. This is the big change that consolidated previous OMB Circulars into 2 CFR 200.
