SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Purpose This information collection requires information necessary for prime applicants and recipients, excepting individuals, of Federal grants to register in the System for Award Management (SAM) and maintain an active SAM registration with current information at all times during which they have an active Federal award or an application or plan under consideration by an agency pursuant to 2 CFR Subtitle A, Chapter I, and part 25 (75 FR 55673 as amended at 79 FR 75879). 2 CFR Subtitle A, Chapter I, and part 25 designates SAM as the governmentwide repository for standard information about applicants and recipients. 2 CFR Subtitle A, Chapter II, and part 200 (80 FR 43308) also designates SAM as the system recipients are required to report certain civil, criminal, or administrative proceedings if they meet certain conditions. Further, Federal awarding agencies are required to check SAM for pre-award purposes in accordance with 2 CFR part 180. This information collection requires that all prime grant awardees, subject to the requirements in 2 CFR Subtitle A, Chapter I, and part 25 register and maintain their registration in SAM. Pursuant to 2 CFR Subtitle A, Chapter II, part 200, Subpart C, Section 200.208 Certifications and representations, Federal agencies are authorized to require non-Federal entities to submit certifications and representations required by Federal statutes, or regulations on an annual basis. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:28 May 24, 2018 Jkt 241001 Currently, most Federal agencies require non-Federal entities to submit certifications with each Federal assistance application by use of the Assurances for Non-Construction Programs (SF–424B) and on an annual basis thereafter. To streamline this data collection and to reduce burden, OMB, in conjunction with the Federal assistance community, developed standard governmentwide certifications and representations to be certified by the non-Federal entity when registering in SAM. In Fiscal Year 2019, OMB will reemphasize that SAM is the repository for standard information about applicants and recipients and that the standard governmentwide certifications and representations are to be certified within SAM at the time of registration and/or registration renewal should meet the need of governmentwide certifications and representations. This will reduce the unnecessary, duplicative practice of agencies requesting certifications and representations with the submission of each application and lead to phasing out the use of the SF– 424B, thereby decreasing the burden level of Federal grant recipients and Federal agencies.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    This information collection requires information necessary for 
prime applicants and recipients, excepting individuals, of Federal 
grants to register in the System for Award Management (SAM) and 
maintain an active SAM registration with current information at all 
times during which they have an active Federal award or an application 
or plan under consideration by an agency pursuant to 2 CFR Subtitle A, 
Chapter I, and part 25 (75 FR 55673 as amended at 79 FR 75879). 2 CFR 
Subtitle A, Chapter I, and part 25 designates SAM as the governmentwide 
repository for standard information about applicants and recipients. 2 
CFR Subtitle A, Chapter II, and part 200 (80 FR 43308) also designates 
SAM as the system recipients are required to report certain civil, 
criminal, or administrative proceedings if they meet certain 
conditions. Further, Federal awarding agencies are required to check 
SAM for pre-award purposes in accordance with 2 CFR part 180. This 
information collection requires that all prime grant awardees, subject 
to the requirements in 2 CFR Subtitle A, Chapter I, and part 25 
register and maintain their registration in SAM.
    Pursuant to 2 CFR Subtitle A, Chapter II, part 200, Subpart C, 
Section 200.208 Certifications and representations, Federal agencies 
are authorized to require non-Federal entities to submit certifications 
and representations required by Federal statutes, or regulations on an 
annual basis. Currently, most Federal agencies require non-Federal 
entities to submit certifications with each Federal assistance 
application by use of the Assurances for Non-Construction Programs (SF-
424B) and on an annual basis thereafter. To streamline this data 
collection and to reduce burden, OMB, in conjunction with the Federal 
assistance community, developed standard governmentwide certifications 
and representations to be certified by the non-Federal entity when 
registering in SAM. In Fiscal Year 2019, OMB will reemphasize that SAM 
is the repository for standard information about applicants and 
recipients and that the standard governmentwide certifications and 
representations are to be certified within SAM at the time of 
registration and/or registration renewal should meet the need of 
governmentwide certifications and representations. This will reduce the 
unnecessary, duplicative practice of agencies requesting certifications 
and representations with the submission of each application and lead to 
phasing out the use of the SF-424B, thereby decreasing the burden level 
of Federal grant recipients and Federal agencies.

C. Public Comments

    Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this 
collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
functions of the System for Award Management Registration Requirements 
for Prime Grant Recipients, whether it will have practical utility;

methodology; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the
