This course is designed to help you plan and manage your federally-sponsored projects for UG Cost Principles. During the course, you will learn about the importance of being UG compliant, how to plan for UG expenses, and how to manage the lifecycle of projects with UG expenses on them.

I appreciated learning about the Uniform Guidance and why we monitor these costs. As a new Research Administrator, I hadn't yet learned this. I had heard about it and how important it was but didn't understand why until today. Thanks! - Anonymous
