SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ETA continually searches for ways to improve its operating and economic efficiency. DOL’s policies currently provide for publication of one page notices of FOAs in the Federal Register. In addition to the publication of notices of FOAs in the Federal Register, DOL, like all Federal agencies, is mandated to publish FOAs on http://www.grants.gov. ETA has published the full text of FOAs on both http://www.grants.gov and on its Web site. The Web sites provide the public with a more efficient way to complete FOAs and expedite the process of obtaining any available funding. On October 8, 2003, OMB issued a policy directive entitled ‘‘Requirement to Post Funding Opportunity Announcement Synopses at http:// www.grants.gov and Related Data Elements/Format’’ [68 FR 58146, Oct. 8, 2003]. The directive requires every Federal agency that awards agreements to post synopses of its funding opportunity announcements in standard format on the Internet at http:// www.grants.gov or such Web site/ Internet address that may be identified by OMB. A single government-wide Web site provides prospective applicants the opportunity to locate funding opportunities in one place rather than having to search for announcements in multiple locations. This was reinforced by OMB’s issuance of its Uniform Guidance on December 26, 2014 [2 CFR 200], which specifically calls for notices of funding opportunities to include specific information when posted on http:// www.grants.gov.

Announcements (FOAs) at the government-wide Internet site, http://www.grants.gov, in accordance with the policy directive issued by the
