1 2 CFR 200 “Uniform Federal Grant Guidance” Michael Miller, Auditor Office of External Audits May 2014

2 Objectives and Background

3 Objectives “The goal of this reform is to deliver on the President’s directives to (1) streamline our guidance for Federal awards to ease administrative burden and (2) strengthen oversight over Federal funds to reduce risks of waste, fraud, and abuse. Streamlining existing OMB guidance will increase the efficiency and effectiveness of Federal awards to ensure best use of the more than $500 billion expended annually….” 3

4 Background The Development of the Reform “This proposal reflects input from more than two years of work by the Federal and non-Federal financial assistance community led by the COFAR in response to the following two Presidential Directives:” “1. February 28, 2011, Presidential Memorandum on Administrative Flexibility, Lower Costs, and Better Results for State, Local, and Tribal Governments …” “2. Executive Order on Reducing Improper Payments …” 4

5 COFAR Council on Financial Assistance Reform

6 About the COFAR “The COFAR, established by OMB Memorandum M-12-01, is comprised of an interagency group of Executive Branch officials to coordinate financial assistance. Council activities include providing recommendations to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on policies and actions necessary to effectively deliver, oversee, and report on grants and cooperative agreements, as well as sharing with executive departments and agencies (agencies) best practices and innovative ideas for transforming the delivery of this assistance. In addition, the Council will engage relevant stakeholders across Government on key issues to foster more efficient and effective Federal management by coordinating the development and implementation of standardized business processes, data standards, metrics, and information technology.” 6

7 Agency Members “The membership of the Council on Financial Assistance Reform consists of the: Controller of the Office of Management and Budget and senior policy officials from eight Federal agencies that provide the largest amounts of financial grants assistance and one additional agency that serves a two-year term to represent the perspective of other agencies that administer grants and cooperative agreements:” 7 Department of Agriculture Department of Education Department of Energy Department of Health and Human Services Department of Homeland Security Department of Housing and Urban Development Department of Labor Department of Transportation Two-year Term Agency National Science Foundation FY12-14 Department of State FY 14-16

8 2 CFR 200 – What is it? TITLE 2 of the CODE OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS PART 200—UNIFORM ADMINISTRATIVE REQUIREMENTS, COST PRINCIPLES, AND AUDIT REQUIREMENTS FOR FEDERAL AWARDS

9 2 CFR 200 – Are these new regulations? 9 As stated by OMB: “To deliver on the promise of a 21st-Century government that is more efficient, effective and transparent, the Office of Management and Budget is streamlining the Federal government’s guidance on Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal awards. These modifications are a key component of a larger Federal effort to more effectively focus Federal resources on improving performance and outcomes while ensuring the financial integrity of taxpayer dollars in partnership with non-Federal stakeholders. This guidance provides a governmentwide framework for grants management which will be complemented by additional efforts to strengthen program outcomes through innovative and effective use of grantmaking models, performance metrics, and evaluation. This reform of OMB guidance will reduce administrative burden for non-Federal entities receiving Federal awards while reducing the risk of waste, fraud and abuse.”

10 2 CFR 200 – Are these new regulations? 10 Primarily existing regulations – “This reform streamlines the language from eight existing OMB circulars into one consolidated set of guidance in the code of Federal regulations. This consolidation is aimed at eliminating duplicative or almost duplicative language in order to clarify where policy is substantively different across types of entities, and where it is not. As a result, the guidance includes sections and parts of sections which are clearly delineated by the type of non-Federal entity to which they apply.”

11 2 CFR 200 – Are these new regulations? 11 “This final guidance does not broaden the scope of applicability from existing government-wide requirements, affecting Federal awards to non- Federal entities including state and local governments, Indian tribes, institutions of higher education, and nonprofit organizations. Parts of it may also apply to for-profit entities in limited circumstances and to foreign entities as described in this guidance and the Federal Acquisition Regulation. This guidance does not change or modify any existing statute or guidance otherwise based on any existing statute. This guidance does not supersede any existing or future authority under law or by executive order or the Federal Acquisition Regulation.”

12 2 CFR 200 – Are these new regulations? 12 § Supersession. As described in § Effective/applicability date, this Part supersedes the following OMB guidance documents and regulations under Title 2 of the Code of Federal Regulations: (a) A-21, “Cost Principles for Educational Institutions” (2 CFR part 220); (b) A-87, “Cost Principles for State, Local and Indian Tribal Governments” (2 CFR part 225) and also Federal Register notice 51 FR 552 (January 6, 1986); (c) A-89, “Federal Domestic Assistance Program Information”; (d) A-102, “Grant Awards and Cooperative Agreements with State and Local Governments”;
