SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On December 19, 2014, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) published an interim final rule that implemented for all Federal award-making agencies, including NEH, OMB's final guidance on Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards. 79 FR 75871. OMB published the uniform rules as 2 CFR part 200. As part of that rulemaking, NEH adopted part 200 through an agency-specific addendum at 2 CFR part 3374. NEH removed and reserved its prior regulations about administrative requirements for Federal awards, 45 CFR part 1174, which were rendered obsolete by the new provisions.

NEH received no comments in response to its adoption of the interim final rule. Therefore, 2 CFR part 3374 as described in the interim final rule, is adopted with no changes.

Regulatory Findings

For the regulatory findings regarding this rulemaking, please refer to the analysis prepared by OMB in the interim final rule, which is incorporated herein by reference. 79 FR at 75876.

Accordingly, the interim rule adding 2 CFR part 3374 and amending 45 CFR part 1174, which was published at 79 FR 75871 on December 19, 2014, is adopted as a final rule without change.
