Financial Module

Dear ClASS Consultants and Interested Parties:

These updated and revised Administrative and Financial Modules (and accompanying Guidance documents) are based on recent revisions to U.S. government regulations. The 2 CFR 200 OMB Uniform Guidance: Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance) was implemented by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as 45 CFR Part 75. The goal was to streamline guidance for Federal awards to ease administrative burden, strengthen oversight of Federal funds to reduce risks of waste, fraud and abuse, and increase efficiency and effectiveness of Federal awards.

For all trained ClASS Administrative and Finance consultants, we encourage you to review both the new Guidance and Modules in preparation for any future involvement in ClASS assessment activities.
