DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE Food and Nutrition Service 7 CFR Parts 210, 215, 220, 225, 226, 227, 235, 240, 246, 247, 248, 249, 253, 272, 273, 274, 276, and 277 RIN 0584–AE42 Regulatory Implementation of Office of Management and Budget’s Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), USDA. ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This rule amends FNS regulations to implement the Department of Agriculture final guidance of USDA-specific requirements in the Federal Agency Regulations for Grants and Agreements. DATES: Effective September 28, 2016. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lael Lubing, Food and Nutrition Service, Financial Management, Grants Division, 3101 Park Center Drive, Room 732, Alexandria, VA or lael.lubing@ fns.usda.gov. SUMMARY: This rule amends FNS regulations to implement the Department of Agriculture final guidance of USDA-specific requirements at 2 CFR part 400 on December 19, 2014 (79 FR 75871). Prior to that, on December 26, 2013, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) published ‘‘Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards’’ in 2 CFR part 200 (78 FR 78589). OMB’s final guidance at 2 CFR part 200 followed a Notice of Proposed Guidance issued February 1, 2013, and an Advanced Notice of Proposed Guidance issued February 28, 2012. The OMB final guidance sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with RULES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:53 Sep 27, 2016 Jkt 238001 incorporated feedback received from the public in response to those earlier issuances. Additional supporting resources are available from the Council on Financial Assistance Reform at www.cfo.gov/COFAR. In accordance with the good cause exception under the APA, it is unnecessary to engage in the Notice and Comment provisions of 5 U.S.C. 553 because the provisions set forth in this rulemaking are a nondiscretionary implementation of USDA requirements codified at 2 CFR part 400. The APA exempts from the prior notice and opportunity for comment requirements rules ‘‘relating to Agency management or personnel or to public property, loans, grants, benefits, or contracts’’ (5 U.S.C. 553 (a)(2)). Currently, references appear throughout the FNS regulations to the OMB guidance consolidated under the ‘‘Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards’’ and the USDA implementing regulations in Title 2, of the CFR. There are over 100 references throughout 19 Parts of the FNS regulations that must be revised to accurately reference the revised OMB and USDA regulations. FNS is therefore proposing nomenclature revisions to the following Parts of Title 7: 210, 215, 220, 225, 226, 227, 235, 240, 246, 247, 248, 249, 253, 272, 273, 274, 276, and 277. The revisions will remove the following references, and other associated outdated references, and replace them as appropriate: References: 7 CFR Part 3015 7 CFR Part 3016 7 CFR Part 3017 7 CFR Part 3018 7 CFR Part 3019 7 CFR Part 3021 7 CFR Part 3052 OMB Circular A–133 OMB Circular A–102 OMB Circular A–87 SF–269 As noted above, the final OMB guidance incorporated feedback received from the public. Procedural Matters Executive Order 12866 and 13563 Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. This final rule has been determined to be not significant and, therefore, was not reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in conformance with Executive Order 12866. Regulatory Impact Analysis This rule has been designated as not significant by the Office of Management and Budget, therefore, no Regulatory Impact Analysis is required. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612) requires Agencies to analyze the impact of rulemaking on small entities and consider alternatives that would minimize any significant impacts on a substantial number of small entities. Pursuant to that review, it has been certified that this rule would not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA), Public Law 104–4, establishes requirements for Federal agencies to assess the effects of their regulatory actions on State, local and tribal governments and the private sector. Under section 202 of the UMRA, the Department generally must prepare a written statement, including a cost benefit analysis, for proposed and final rules with ‘‘Federal mandates’’ that may result in expenditures by State, local or tribal governments, in the aggregate, or the private sector, of $100 million or more in any one year. When such a statement is needed for a rule, Section 205 of the UMRA generally requires the Department to identify and consider a reasonable number of regulatory alternatives and adopt the most cost effective or least burdensome alternative that achieves the objectives of the rule. This rule does not contain Federal mandates (under the regulatory provisions of Title II of the UMRA) for State, local and tribal governments or the private sector of $100 million or more in any one year. Thus, the rule is E:\FR\FM\28SER1.SGM 28SER1 66488 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 188 / Wednesday, September 28, 2016 / Rules and Regulations not subject to the requirements of sections 202 and 205 of the UMRA. Federalism Summary Impact Statement Executive Order 13132 requires Federal agencies to consider the impact of their regulatory actions on State and local governments. Where such actions have federalism implications, agencies are directed to provide a statement for inclusion in the preamble to the regulations describing the agency’s considerations in terms of the three categories called for under Section (6)(b)(2)(B) of Executive Order 13121. The Department has considered the impact of this rule on State and local governments and has determined that this rule does not have federalism implications. Therefore, under section 6(b) of the Executive Order, a federalism summary is not required. Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform This rule has been reviewed under Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform. This rule is intended to have preemptive effect with respect to any State or local laws, regulations or policies which conflict with its provisions or which would otherwise impede its full and timely implementation. This rule is not intended to have retroactive effect unless so specified in the Effective Dates section of the final rule. Prior to any judicial challenge to the provisions of the final rule, all applicable administrative procedures must be exhausted. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with RULES Civil Rights Impact Analysis FNS has reviewed this rule in accordance with USDA Regulation 4300–4, ‘‘Civil Rights Impact Analysis,’’ to identify any major civil rights impacts the rule might have on program participants on the basis of age, race, color, national origin, sex or disability. After a review of the rule’s intent and provisions, FNS has determined that this rule is not expected to affect the participation of protected individuals in FNS program(s). Executive Order 13175 Executive Order 13175 requires Federal agencies to consult and coordinate with Tribes on a government-to-government basis on policies that have Tribal implications, including regulations, legislative comments or proposed legislation, and other policy statements or actions that have substantial direct effects on one or more Indian Tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian Tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian Tribes. FNS has assessed the impact of this rule on Indian tribes and determined that this rule does not, to our knowledge, have tribal implications that require tribal consultation under E.O. 13175. If a Tribe requests consultation, FNS will work with the Office of Tribal Relations to ensure meaningful consultation is provided where changes, additions and modifications identified herein are not expressly mandated by Congress. Paperwork Reduction Act The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chap. 35; 5 CFR 1320) requires the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approve all collections of information by a Federal agency before they can be implemented. Respondents are not required to respond to any collection of information unless it displays a current valid OMB control number. This rule does not contain information collection requirements subject to approval by the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1994. E-Government Act Compliance The Department is committed to complying with the E-Government Act, to promote the use of the Internet and other information technologies to provide increased opportunities for citizen access to Government information and services, and for other purposes.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with RULES Background The Agricultural Act of 2014 (2014 Farm Bill) directed the Agency to combine the Rural Business Enterprise Grant (RBEG) program and the Rural Business Opportunity Grant (RBOG) program into a single new program entitled the Rural Business Development Grant (RBDG) program. The Agency issued an interim rule with request for comment on March 25, 2015 (80 FR 15665) establishing the RBDG program and removing the applicable provisions associated with the RBEG and RBOG programs. In the interim rule, the Agency inadvertently did not update the title to 7 CFR 1940.588 to reflect the replacement of the RBEG and RBOG programs with the new RBDG program. To correct this oversight, the Agency is revising the title to 7 CFR 1940.588. This correction has no substantive effect on how State allocations are made for the RBDG program.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This rule amends FNS regulations to 
implement the Department of Agriculture final guidance of USDA-specific 
requirements at 2 CFR part 400 on December 19, 2014 (79 FR 75871). 
Prior to that, on December 26, 2013, the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) published ``Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost 
Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards'' in 2 CFR part 
200 (78 FR 78589). OMB's final guidance at 2 CFR part 200 followed a 
Notice of Proposed Guidance issued February 1, 2013, and an Advanced 
Notice of Proposed Guidance issued February 28, 2012. The OMB final 
guidance incorporated feedback received from the public in response to 
those earlier issuances. Additional supporting resources are available 
from the Council on Financial Assistance Reform at www.cfo.gov/COFAR. 
In accordance with the good cause exception under the APA, it is 
unnecessary to engage in the Notice and Comment provisions of 5 U.S.C. 
553 because the provisions set forth in this rulemaking are a non-
discretionary implementation of USDA requirements codified at 2 CFR 
part 400. The APA exempts from the prior notice and opportunity for 
comment requirements rules ``relating to Agency management or personnel 
or to public property, loans, grants, benefits, or contracts'' (5 
U.S.C. 553 (a)(2)).
    Currently, references appear throughout the FNS regulations to the 
OMB guidance consolidated under the ``Uniform Administrative 
Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal 
Awards'' and the USDA implementing regulations in Title 2, of the CFR. 
There are over 100 references throughout 19 Parts of the FNS 
regulations that must be revised to accurately reference the revised 
OMB and USDA regulations. FNS is therefore proposing nomenclature 
revisions to the following Parts of Title 7: 210, 215, 220, 225, 226, 
227, 235, 240, 246, 247, 248, 249, 253, 272, 273, 274, 276, and 277. 
The revisions will remove the following references, and other 
associated outdated references, and replace them as appropriate:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
References:
  7 CFR Part 3015
  7 CFR Part 3016
  7 CFR Part 3017
  7 CFR Part 3018

  7 CFR Part 3021
  7 CFR Part 3052
  OMB Circular A-133
  OMB Circular A-102
  OMB Circular A-87
  SF-269
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As noted above, the final OMB guidance incorporated feedback 
received from the public.

Procedural Matters

Executive Order 12866 and 13563

    Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess all 
costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public 
health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive 
Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and 
benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting 
flexibility. This final rule has been determined to be not significant 
and, therefore, was not reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) in conformance with Executive Order 12866.

Regulatory Impact Analysis

    This rule has been designated as not significant by the Office of 
Management and Budget, therefore, no Regulatory Impact Analysis is 
required.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612) requires Agencies 
to analyze the impact of rulemaking on small entities and consider 
alternatives that would minimize any significant impacts on a 
substantial number of small entities. Pursuant to that review, it has 
been certified that this rule would not have a significant impact on a 
substantial number of small entities.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA), Public 
Law 104-4, establishes requirements for Federal agencies to assess the 
effects of their regulatory actions on State, local and tribal 
governments and the private sector. Under section 202 of the UMRA, the 
Department generally must prepare a written statement, including a cost 
benefit analysis, for proposed and final rules with ``Federal 
mandates'' that may result in expenditures by State, local or tribal 
governments, in the aggregate, or the private sector, of $100 million 
or more in any one year. When such a statement is needed for a rule, 
Section 205 of the UMRA generally requires the Department to identify 
and consider a reasonable number of regulatory alternatives and adopt 
the most cost effective or least burdensome alternative that achieves 
the objectives of the rule.
    This rule does not contain Federal mandates (under the regulatory 
provisions of Title II of the UMRA) for State, local and tribal 
governments or the private sector of $100 million or more in any one 
year. Thus, the rule is

[[Page 66488]]

not subject to the requirements of sections 202 and 205 of the UMRA.

Federalism Summary Impact Statement

    Executive Order 13132 requires Federal agencies to consider the 
impact of their regulatory actions on State and local governments. 
Where such actions have federalism implications, agencies are directed 
to provide a statement for inclusion in the preamble to the regulations 
describing the agency's considerations in terms of the three categories 
called for under Section (6)(b)(2)(B) of Executive Order 13121. The 
Department has considered the impact of this rule on State and local 
governments and has determined that this rule does not have federalism 
implications. Therefore, under section 6(b) of the Executive Order, a 
federalism summary is not required.

Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform

    This rule has been reviewed under Executive Order 12988, Civil 
Justice Reform. This rule is intended to have preemptive effect with 
respect to any State or local laws, regulations or policies which 
conflict with its provisions or which would otherwise impede its full 
and timely implementation. This rule is not intended to have 
retroactive effect unless so specified in the Effective Dates section 
of the final rule. Prior to any judicial challenge to the provisions of 
the final rule, all applicable administrative procedures must be 
exhausted.

Civil Rights Impact Analysis

    FNS has reviewed this rule in accordance with USDA Regulation 4300-
4, ``Civil Rights Impact Analysis,'' to identify any major civil rights 
impacts the rule might have on program participants on the basis of 
age, race, color, national origin, sex or disability. After a review of 
the rule's intent and provisions, FNS has determined that this rule is 
not expected to affect the participation of protected individuals in 
FNS program(s).

Executive Order 13175

    Executive Order 13175 requires Federal agencies to consult and 
coordinate with Tribes on a government-to-government basis on policies 
that have Tribal implications, including regulations, legislative 
comments or proposed legislation, and other policy statements or 
actions that have substantial direct effects on one or more Indian 
Tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian 
Tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between 
the Federal Government and Indian Tribes. FNS has assessed the impact 
of this rule on Indian tribes and determined that this rule does not, 
to our knowledge, have tribal implications that require tribal 
consultation under E.O. 13175. If a Tribe requests consultation, FNS 
will work with the Office of Tribal Relations to ensure meaningful 
consultation is provided where changes, additions and modifications 
identified herein are not expressly mandated by Congress.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chap. 35; 5 CFR 
1320) requires the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approve all 
collections of information by a Federal agency before they can be 
implemented. Respondents are not required to respond to any collection 
of information unless it displays a current valid OMB control number. 
This rule does not contain information collection requirements subject 
to approval by the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1994.

E-Government Act Compliance

    The Department is committed to complying with the E-Government Act, 
to promote the use of the Internet and other information technologies 
to provide increased opportunities for citizen access to Government 
information and services, and for other purposes.

5. Revise Sec.  210.21(a) and (b), and the introductory text of

Sec.  210.21   Procurement.

    (a) General. State agencies and school food authorities shall 
comply with the requirements of this part and 2 CFR part 200, subpart D 
and USDA implementing regulations 2 CFR part 400 and part 415, as 
applicable, which implement the applicable requirements, concerning the 
procurement of all goods and services with nonprofit school food 
service account funds.
    (b) Contractual responsibilities. The standards contained in this 
part and 2 CFR part 200, subpart D and USDA implementing regulations 2 
CFR part 400 and part 415, as applicable, do not relieve the State 
agency or school food authority of any contractual responsibilities 
under its contracts. The State agency or school food authority is the 
responsible authority, without recourse to FNS, regarding the 
settlement and satisfaction of all contractual and administrative 
issues arising out of procurements entered into in connection with the 
Program. This includes, but is not limited to source evaluation, 
protests, disputes, claims, or other matters of a contractual nature. 
Matters concerning violation of law are to be referred to the local, 
State, or Federal authority that has proper jurisdiction.
    (c) Procedures. The State agency may elect to follow either the 
State laws, policies and procedures as authorized by 2 CFR 200.317, or 
the procurement standards for other governmental grantees and all 
governmental subgrantees in accordance with 2 CFR 200.318 through 2 CFR 
200.326. Regardless of the option selected, States must ensure that all 
contracts include any clauses required by Federal statutes and 
executive orders and that the requirements 2 CFR 200.236 and Appendix 
II, Contract Provisions for Non-Federal Entity Contracts Under Federal 
Award are followed. A school food authority may use its own procurement 
procedures which reflect applicable State and local laws and 
regulations, provided that procurements made with nonprofit school food 
service account funds adhere to the standards set forth in this part 
and in 2 CFR part 200, subpart D, as applicable. School food authority 
procedures must include a written code of standards of conduct meeting 
the minimum standards of 2 CFR 200.318, as applicable.

Sec.  215.14a  Procurement standards.

    (a) General. State agencies and school food authorities shall 
comply with the requirements of this part and 2 CFR part 200 and USDA 
implementing regulations 2 CFR part 400 and part 415, as applicable 
concerning the procurement of all goods and services with nonprofit 
school food service account funds.
    (b) Contractual responsibilities. The standards contained in this 
part and 2 CFR part 200, subpart D and USDA implementing regulations 2 
CFR part 200 subparts B and D and USDA implementing regulations 2 CFR 
part 400 and part 415, as applicable, do not relieve the State agency 
or School Food Authority of any contractual responsibilities under its 
contract. The State agency or School Food Authority is the responsible 
authority, without recourse to FNS, regarding the settlement and 
satisfaction of all contractual and administrative issues arising out 
of procurements entered into in connection with the Program. This 
includes but is not limited to: Source evaluation, protests, disputes, 
claims, or other matters of a contractual nature. Matters concerning 
violation of law are to be referred to the local, State or Federal 
authority that has proper jurisdiction.
    (c) Procedures. The State agency may elect to follow either the 
State laws, policies and procedures as authorized by 2 CFR 200.317, or 
the procurement standards for other governmental grantees and all 
governmental subgrantees in accordance with 2 CFR 200.318 through 2 CFR 
200.326. Regardless of the option selected, States must ensure that all 
contracts include any clauses required by Federal statutes and 
executive orders and that the requirements of 2 CFR 200.236 and 
Appendix II, Contract Provisions for Non-Federal Entity Contracts Under 
Federal Award are followed. The school food authority or child care 
institution may use its own procurement procedures which reflect 
applicable State or local laws and regulations, provided that 
procurements made with nonprofit school food service account funds 
adhere to the standards set forth in this part and in 2 CFR part 200, 
subpart D and USDA implementing regulations 2 CFR part 400 and part 415 
as applicable. School food authority procedures must include a written 
code of standards of conduct meeting the minimum standards of 2 CFR 
200.318, as applicable.
