A Guide to Managing Federal Grants for Colleges and Universities

guide coverA Guide to Managing Federal Grants for Colleges and Universities is a virtual electronic handbook on grants administration. Published by the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) and the National Council of University Research Administrators (NCURA) and written by three nationally prominent research administrators, the extensive guide addresses such topics as differences in types of award agreements, grant application processes, the Office of Management and Budget Circulars, facilities and administrative costs, cost accounting standards, intellectual property, reporting requirements, audits, managing subrecipient awards and compliance issues. The guide does a good job of explaining federal requirements in plain English. It is updated regularly and is fully searchable.

KU-Lawrence employees can access the guide by obtaining the institutional KU user-id and password from Bill Sharp at wsharp@ku.edu.
