In accordance with the Federal Register notice published on December 19, 2014 (79 FR 75871) and the regulation at 2 CFR 1327.101, the DOC adopted the OMB Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards set forth in 2 CFR part 200 (OMB Uniform Guidance) for DOC Federal financial assistance awards (i.e., grants and cooperative agreements).

This announcement provides notice to applicants and other interested parties that various laws, regulations, administrative requirements, and Federal and DOC policies procedures apply to all DOC-sponsored assistance programs. A compilation of these requirements may be found on the DOC Web site at http://www.osec.doc.gov/ oam/grants_management/policy/ default.htm. Please note that as these requirements change, the DOC Web site will be updated, but there may be a time lag between when a requirement is effective and when it is posted at the previously referenced Web site. All requirements applicable to Federal awards will be clearly identified in the 78391 terms and conditions of the Federal award. Dated: December 22, 2014.
