USG Grant Regs–Prep for Major Changes Coming
On December 26, 2014 published the Code of Federal Regulations (2 CFR part 200) to consolidate and streamline guidance for uniform administrative requirements, cost principles, and audit requirements for federal awards. It consolidates grant guidance for all federal departments and agencies. In accordance with 2 CFR 200.109 the guidance must be reviewed every five years. On August 13, 2020, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) published 333 pages of revisions to operationalize the grants management standards, establish a robust marketplace of modern solutions, manage risk, and achieve program goals and objectives. The changes also include requirements from several National Defense Authorization Acts (NDAAs) and the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (FFATA), as amended by the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (DATS Act). Changes also include revisions to clarify areas of misinterpretation received from the public comment period.
Revisions to the Uniform Grant Guidance are reflected in 2 CFR parts 25, 170 and 200 with an additional part 183. The revisions are effective November 13, 2020 except for amendments to 200.216 and 200.340 which are effective August 13, 2020. The sections are revised within the following scope: to support implementation of the President’s Management Agenda Results-Oriented Accountability for Grants CAP Goal and other Administration priorities; to meet statutory requirements and to align with other authoritative source requirements; and to clarify existing requirements.
