'FHWA Planning and Research Grants: The Uniform Guidance (2 CFR Part 200) - Part 1' is a 1.5-hour Web-based Training course offered by NHI, the authoritative source in transportation training.

Recent legislation has introduced changes to the requirements around the administration of FHWA planning and research grants. This course is the second in a series of Web-based Training courses on this topic and introduces 2 CFR Part 200, the Uniform Guidance. Learners will gain familiarity with the history and overview of the Uniform Guidance, and will get into detail on Subparts A through D.

The course consists of three lessons:

Lesson 1 (History and Overview) covers a brief history of the Uniform Guidance, the responsibilities of the States, and the flow of requirements to state and local governments.

Lesson 2 (Definitions, General Provisions, and Pre-Award Requirements) covers key terms, general provisions, and pre-award requirements, as presented in Subparts A through C of the Uniform Guidance.

Lesson 3 (Post Federal Award Requirements) covers Post Federal Award Requirements, which are presented in Subpart D of the Uniform Guidance.

This course series was revised and republished in April 2018 in response to the Office of Management and Budget's promulgation of 2 CFR Part 200 (Unified Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit for Federal Awards; also referred to as the "Uniform Guidance" or "Supercircular") and the enactment of the MAP-21 and FAST Acts. The course includes direct links to the full text of the regulations, as they are discussed throughout the course.

The course includes an assessment, which learners must pass at 70% to receive credit for the course.
