This notice announces the availability of the 2012 OMB Circular A-133 Compliance Supplement (Supplement). The notice also offers interested parties an opportunity to comment on the 2012 Supplement. The 2012 Supplement adds seven new programs, including four programs added to existing clusters. It deletes eight programs and has also been updated for program changes and technical corrections. The eight deleted programs are:

In total, the 2012 Supplement includes 243 individual programs. A list of changes to the 2012 Supplement can be found at APPENDIX V. APPENDIX VII provides an audit alert and lists compliance requirements regarding the grant programs funded under American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Due to its length, the 2012 Supplement is not included in this Notice. See “Addresses” for information about how to obtain a copy either on line or through the Government Printing Office.
