Implementation of OMB Guidance on Nonprocurement Debarment and Suspension
Document Number: 2012-7358
Type: Rule
Date: 2012-03-28
Agency: Department of Education
The Secretary of the Department of Education (Department) establishes a new part in 2 CFR that adopts the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB's) guidance, as supplemented by this new part, as the Department's regulations for nonprocurement debarment and suspension. The Secretary removes regulations that contain the Department's current implementation of the Governmentwide common rule on nonprocurement debarment and suspension. The Secretary also amends regulations to correct citations as appropriate. The new part will serve the same purposes as, and is substantively identical to, the nonprocurement suspension and debarment common rule published in the Federal Register on November 26, 2003. On August 31, 2005, OMB established interim final guidance that was substantively identical to the common rule and directed Federal agencies to adopt those guidelines as regulations. On November 15, 2006, OMB published final guidance. These final regulations adopt the OMB guidance as regulations of the Department. In addition, the Department adds those requirements that describe how the Department implements suspension and debarment requirements in the context of Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA). This regulatory action is an administrative simplification that makes no substantive change in the Department's policy or procedures for nonprocurement debarment and suspension. We do not intend any substantive changes to the Department's debarment and suspension regulations. To be sure we achieved that objective, we ask for technical comments about whether the new regulations are substantively different than the existing regulations.

Native American Career and Technical Education Program; Proposed Waivers and Extension of the Project Period; CFDA Number 84.101A
Document Number: 2012-3676
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-02-16
Agency: Department of Education
For 60-month projects funded in fiscal year (FY) 2007 under the Native American Career and Technical Education Program (NACTEP), the Secretary proposes to waive the regulations that generally restrict project periods to 60 months and that restrict project period extensions involving the obligation of additional Federal funds. The Secretary also proposes to extend the current NACTEP project periods through FY 2013. These proposed waivers and extension of the project period would enable the 30 current NACTEP grantees to request and continue to receive Federal funding beyond the 60-month limitation contained in the Department's regulations. Further, the waivers and extension, as proposed, would mean that we would not announce new awards in FY 2012.

Document Number: 2012-3674
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-02-16
Agency: Department of Education
For 60-month projects funded in fiscal year (FY) 2007 under the Tribally Controlled Postsecondary Career and Technical Institutions Program (TCPCTIP), the Secretary proposes to waive the regulations that generally limit project periods to 60 months and that restrict project period extensions involving the obligation of additional Federal funds. The Secretary also proposes to extend the project period for current TCPCTIP grantees through FY 2013, or longer, if Congress continues to appropriate funds under the existing program authority. The proposed waivers and extension would enable the two current TCPCTIP grantees to request and continue to receive Federal funding beyond the 60-month limitation contained in the Department's regulations, so long as the grantees are meeting the TCPCTIP requirements. Further, the waivers and extension, as proposed, would mean that we would not announce a new competition in FY 2012 or make new awards in that year, or in future years, if Congress continues to appropriate funds under the existing program authority.

The Secretary also proposes to extend the project period of these grants for an additional 12 months. This would enable the eight current NHCTEP grantees to seek FY 2012 continuation awards for project periods through FY 2013.
