2 CFR 200.305 - Uniform Administrative Requirements for Grants and Agreements with Institutions of Higher Education, Hospitals, and other Non-Profit Organizations
- Rowan University’s Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) draws down federal funds that support activities managed by OSP approximately once per quarter, unless the federal granting agency requires another time interval. The draw down process is performed by either the Grants Accounting Manager or designee.
- Typically, federal funds are not drawn down until they have been spent unless a cash advance has been authorized by the funding agency. If this is the case, OSP will adhere to the agency’s requirement for cash advances, including holding cash in interest bearing accounts per 2 CFR 200.305Treatment of earned income would also comply with 2 CFR 200.305.
