Notice of availability of the 2009 Circular A-133 Compliance Supplement.


This notice announces the availability of the 2009 Circular A-133 Compliance Supplement. The notice also offers interested parties an opportunity to comment on the 2009 Circular A-133 Compliance Supplement. The 2009 Supplement adds four programs, including one program added to an existing cluster, and a new cross cutting section. It deletes six programs and has also been updated for program changes and technical corrections. In total, the 2009 Compliance Supplement includes 176 individual programs. A list of changes to the 2009 Supplement can be found at Appendix V. It has a new Appendix VII that provides an audit alert regarding the grant programs funded under American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and a summary report of common audit deficiencies disclosed in the Report on the National Single Audit Sampling Project (published in June 2007). Due to its length, the 2009 Supplement is not included in this Notice. See ADDRESSES for information about how to obtain a copy.
