On March 19th, 2020 the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) released a memo (M-20-17) relating to Administrative Relief for Recipients and Applicants of Federal sponsored awards. This memo lists a variety of actions and costs to which Federal agencies may grant exceptions due to impacts from COVID-19.
The OMB memo does not authorize recipients to undertake any of the listed actions or to charge any of the mentioned costs to an award. It only gives other federal agencies the authority to issue exceptions in accordance with the memo.
Please continue to refer to sponsor and UConn policy for guidance in managing sponsored awards impacted by COVID-19.
