COVID-19 Pandemic - Extension of Administrative Flexibilities
COVID-19 Pandemic – Extension of Administrative Flexibilities Granted to Federal Award Recipients:
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) originally issued three memoranda* allowing Federal agencies to grant various administrative, financial and audit requirement flexibilities to their recipients directly impacted by Covid-19.
*M-20-11 expired June 16, 2020
M-20-17 expires July 26, 2020 except item 6+
M-20-20 expires July 26, 2020 except item 13++
Although research activities are gradually ramping up, the research landscape is ever changing and uncertain due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Hence, M-20-20 has extended the following flexibilities:
+M-20-17 – Item 6, Allowability of salaries and other project activities, extended through September 30, 2020
++ M 20-20 – Item 13, Extension of Single Audit submission through December 31, 2020
