RSA-TAC-18-02 explains flexibilities for State VR agencies within the parameters of the Uniform Administrative Requirement, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance), codified at 2 CFR part 200, in the form of streamlined procedures for the submission of prior approval requests for certain cost items, specifically those for certain general purpose equipment and participant support costs. The streamlined submission procedures described should significantly reduce the burden on State VR agencies with respect to prior approval requests for certain general purpose equipment purchases and participant support costs.
