This joint interim final rule implements for all Federal award-making agencies the final guidance Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance) published by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on December 26, 2013. This rule is necessary in order to incorporate into regulation and thus bring into effect the Uniform Guidance as required by OMB. Implementation of this guidance will reduce administrative burden and risk of waste, fraud, and abuse for the approximately $600 billion per year awarded in Federal financial assistance. The result will be more Federal dollars reprogrammed to support the mission, new entities able to compete and win awards, and ultimately a stronger framework to provide key services to American citizens and support the basic research that underpins the United States economy.

This program helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirement on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, CNCS is soliciting comments concerning proposed revision of its Senior Corps Grant Application (424-NSSC) (OMB Control Number 3045-0035). The Grant Application is used by the Foster Grandparent, Senior Companion, and RSVP programs. CNCS proposes the following modifications to increase both the flexibility and the utility of the Senior Corps Grant Application so that it can serve as the source instructional document for data fields required to complete and submit an application for funding. Currently, the Grant Application contains two types of information needed by applicants: Instructional or ``how- to'' information and narrative questions and other content. While the instructions rarely change from year to year, the narrative questions and performance measures content can and do change annually, resulting in an ongoing need for Grant Application revisions for the upcoming year or competition. With this proposed change, CNCS will use the Senior Corps Grant Application exclusively to define data fields and describe how to enter the required data and information in each field. The Grant Application will not contain the content questions. The proposed change will be achieved by: (1) Removing and relocating narrative questions and other content materials from the Grant Application to applicable competitive Notices of Funding Opportunity and/or non-competitive Notices of Invitation to Apply for grant funds; (2) Removing performance measures requirements from the Grant Application and referring applicants to the OMB approved Performance Measures Requirements documents for the Senior Corps programs; and (3) replacing all existing Grant Application instructions with step-by-step eGrants instructions correlated to the Grant Application screens in eGrants. With these changes, applicants for Senior Corps grants can use a set of interrelated and readily available documents to complete the Grant Application. The proposed revisions do not change the estimated respondent burden. The proposed revisions do not change the data fields or data collected with the Senior Corps Grant Application. Copies of the information collection request can be obtained by contacting the office listed in the addresses section of this Notice.

In support of these efforts, we will design and field a survey of grantees and organizations in the service area in several sites, the data from which will be the foundation for social network analysis. CNCS will analyze the resulting data, which will produce quantitative mapping of networks and measure the networks' formal propertiesnotably the strength, intensity, frequency, and direction of the network relations.

This program helps to ensure that: Requested data can be provided in the desired format; reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized; collection instruments are clearly understood; and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, CNCS is soliciting comments concerning its proposed National Assessment of the Social Innovation Fund (SIF). The study involves two major data collection activities. The first is a survey of SIF grantees (intermediary organizations) and two comparison groups (non-selected SIF applicant organizations, and a sample of national nonprofits that make grants to U.S. organizations). The second involves semi-structured interviews with stakeholders of the intermediaries to obtain more in-depth understanding of the SIF program. Both the survey and the stakeholder interviews are intended to be repeated annually for three years. The survey and stakeholder interviews are designed to allow CNCS SIF program administrators and others in the field to understand how the SIF program is implemented and what effects the program has on participating organizations (intermediaries and sub grantees) and on the larger field of social innovation, scaling of interventions, and evidence-based grantmaking. Completion of this information collection is not required to be considered for or obtain grant funding from the Social Innovation Fund. Copies of the information collection request can be obtained by contacting the office listed in the Addresses section of this Notice.
