How Close Are You to Complying with

Uniform Guidance Procurement Standards?

Find out with our free procurement readiness checklist!

The Uniform Guidance has overhauled the way in which procurement must be managed by federal grant recipients. The UG includes over 50 procurement-related compliance requirements that cover a broad spectrum of procurement activities including:

  • Selecting from five approved methods of procurement

  • Conducting competitive solicitations

  • Contracting with small, minority and woman-owned businesses (SMWBEs)

  • Performing cost and price analyses

  • Maintaining contractual standards

  • Providing access to procurement system

  • Documenting all procurement activities and maintaining a history of that documentation

Beginning in 2018, federal grant recipients – including international NGOs, health & human service organizations, state and local governments and other nonprofits - are now under increased scrutiny and oversight with regard to their procurement activities.

Not yet compliant? You're not alone.

In our 2017 survey of nearly 150 federal grant recipients, we learned that 4 out of 5 were not yet compliant with the Uniform Guidance procurement standards. And of those, 25% weren't even sure of where they were in the process!

Vendor Centric's procurement experts (and former auditors) have researched all of the UG procurement standards created a 4-Step Process – complete with policies, procedures, templates and procurement software – that your organization can follow to progress from wherever you are currently to full compliance with the new Uniform Guidance standards.
