Rule/Notice/NOFO: OMB, Guidance for Grants and Agreements
Federal Register/Notice: federalregister.gov
Type of Requirement: Proposed rule
Description: OMB proposes revising 2 CFR for reasons including: (1) incorporating statutory requirements and administration priorities; (2) reducing agency and recipient burden; (3) clarifying sections that recipients or agencies have interpreted in different ways; and (4) rewriting applicable sections in plain language, improving flow, and addressing inconsistent use of terms. Consistent with these objectives, OMB proposes both policy changes and clarifications to existing guidance including plain language revisions. OMB also proposes to update the guidance to reflect recent OMB priorities related to Federal financial assistance. Finally, OMB’s proposed revisions are also intended to improve Federal financial assistance management, transparency, and oversight through more accessible and readily comprehensible guidance.
How is it enforced by FTA, DOT, Direct grant requirement, triennial review or other? OMB delegates to DOT the authority to enforce these requirements.
Is there a cost or time impact to grantees (best estimate): TBD
