Guidelines List | Forms | Procedures


The University at Nebraska Medical Center’s (UNMC) policy for the financial management of service centers has been established to provide consistent operational practices among the various service center units and to ensure compliance with federal government regulations. This is important because UNMC conducts sponsored programs under federal government grants and contracts. Service center activities result in direct and indirect charges to sponsored grants and contracts. Therefore, Service Center policies and practices must reflect government regulatory costing principles such as those contained in the Office of Management Budget (OMB) Circular A-21, "Cost Principles for Colleges and Universities," and those required by the Cost Accounting Standards Board. As a major research university, UNMC cost accounting must be consistent for all operations.
