SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On December 19, 2014, the Office of Management and Budget published an interim final rule that provided comprehensive modifications to the principles and requirements for federal awards. 79 FR 75871. The uniform rules were published as 2 CFR part 200. As part of that rulemaking, the Department of State adopted part 200, along with an agency-specific addendum in a new part 600. In addition, the Department removed 22 CFR parts 135 and 145, as they became obsolete with the publication of the interim final rule. See 79 FR at 76019.

The Department received no relevant comments in response to the rule. Therefore, 2 CFR part 600, as described in the interim final rule, is adopted with no changes.
