Commodity Credit Corporation May 2018 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Conservation Program Recipient Reporting
Document Number: 2018-10641
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-05-18
Agency: Department of Agriculture, Commodity Credit Corporation, Natural Resources Conservation Service
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued regulatory guidance to agencies to establish requirements for Federal financial assistance applicants, recipients, and subrecipients that are necessary for the implementation of the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006 (the Transparency Act). Since FY 2011, NRCS included the requirements identified in each of the NRCS conservation program regulations that involve an award of Federal financial assistance. Section 766 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018 amended the Food Security Act of 1985 to exempt producers and landowners participating in NRCS conservation programs from the Transparency Act regulations. Therefore, NRCS is removing specific reference to the Transparency Act regulations in its conservation program regulations where such requirements affect its conservation program agreements with producers and landowners.
