38 Proposed Circular Changes
Highlights .501(c) Subrecipient Management Additional subrecipient monitoring of institutions that are subject to direct monitoring is burdensome and expensive Pass-through entities be allowed to rely on A-133 audits of subs and only monitor in cases when specific findings and questioned costs on subaward/contract issued by prime awardee Rely on corrective action plans being monitored by subs A-133 auditor

39 Proposed Circular Changes
