Increased Threshold for Uniform Guidance & New Checklists

The Office of Federal Financial Management increased the Simplified Acquisition Threshold in the Uniform Guidance from $150,000 to $250,000. This threshold controls the limit over which all purchases made with Federal grant funding must be competitively and openly bid.

As a reminder, Uniform Guidance only impacts projects using Federal grant funding and does not impact Federal contracts or any other kinds of funded purchases.

To assist the University community with the purchasing processes with Uniform Guidance, we have created Federal grant versions of the Requisition Checklist and the Services Agreement Checklist. The federal grant versions include pertinent information for making purchases with Federal Grant funding.

These are a supplement to the Purchasing Goods or Services with Federal Grant Funding page on our website which contains information about Uniform Guidance and University purchasing procedures. At the bottom of this page you can also find the slidesfrom the May presentations on the topic. The presentation does reference the original $150,000 Simplified Acquisition Threshold.

For any questions, please contact PantherExpress Customer Service bysubmitting an inquiryor calling 412-624-3578.

Thank you,
The University of Pittsburgh - PantherExpress
