It is a compliance requirement to follow the University Procurement guidelines when procuring goods and services using sponsored funds. Additionally, you should pay attention to individual sponsor award terms and conditions to ensure that award procurement requirements are noted and followed. University Procurement Guidelines can be found here. Changes to Federal Procurement standards as a result of the Uniform Guidance are currently under review, please stay tuned to the OSP Blog and Policy page for more information this fiscal year. The Uniform Guidance (2CFR200), in effect 12/26/14, allows for the Harvard University to follow previous OMB guidance (superseded by this part as described in § 200.104) and existing University  procurement standards for an additional fiscal year before implementing Uniform Guidance Procurement Standards, as described in §§ 200.317–200.326. Harvard University is taking advantage of this opportunity to follow previous guidance and implement new procurement standards in FY17.
