Final Rule Stage

368.  Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and 
Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Section 610 Review)

    E.O. 13771 Designation: Deregulatory.
    Legal Authority: 51 U.S.C. 20113
    Abstract: In December, 2014, OMB together with NASA and the other 
Federal awarding agencies, issued a joint interim rule to implement the 
new guidance at 2 CFR 200 titled ``Uniform Administrative Requirements, 
Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform 
Guidance).'' OMB used the rulemaking procedure when promulgating this 
common rule on grants and cooperative agreements and required each 
agency to adopt OMB's common rule on grants and cooperative agreements. 
Although statutorily unnecessary, NASA used rulemaking procedures in 
2015 to incorporate portions of the Uniform Guidance into the Federal 
Regulations because the NASA Grants Management function was affiliated 
with Procurement Operations at the time. For example, a review of all 
Federal grant awarding agencies of their handling of 2 CFR 200 subtitle 
B indicated that only 2700-AE49 NASA of the 32 Agencies and Offices of 
the federal government included Terms and Conditions in Federal 
Regulations. The below requested change will reduce burden by having 
unnecessary requirements in the Federal Regulations removed as well as 
allow NASA to streamline its practices to comport with other Federal 
grant awarding agencies. NASA is issuing a direct final rule to:
    1. Remove the Certifications, Assurances, and Representations 
Appendix A from 2 CFR 1800.
    2. Remove the Terms and Conditions Appendix B from 2 CFR 1800.
    3. Change section 1800.208 and take out ``the certification and 
representations for NASA may be found at Appendix A of this part.''
    4. Change section 1800.210 and take out ``the terms and conditions 
for NASA may be found at Appendix A of this part.''
