SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

On December 19, 2014 (79 FR 75867), OMB published a joint, Governmentwide interim rule of all Federal award-making agencies entitled, “Federal Awarding Agency Regulatory Implementation of Office of Management and Budget's Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards.” In the joint interim rule, HUD and all other Federal award-making agencies implemented OMB's final guidance entitled, “Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards” (Uniform Guidance) published on December 26, 2013 (78 FR 78589). The Uniform Guidance followed publication of a Notice of Proposed Guidance published on February 1, 2013 (78 FR 7282), and an Advance Notice of Proposed Guidance published on February 28, 2012 (77 FR 11778), and incorporated public comments received on those two documents. The Uniform Guidance is codified at 2 CFR part 200.

OMB's Uniform Guidance provides a Governmentwide framework for Federal grant management designed to reduce administrative burden for non-Federal entities receiving Federal awards, while reducing the risk of waste, fraud, and abuse. The Uniform Guidance establishes requirements and responsibilities for all Federal agencies that award Federal financial assistance and all non-Federal entities that receive Federal awards. In developing the Uniform Guidance, OMB consolidated existing OMB circulars into a single set of requirements. OMB circulars consolidated and superseded by the Uniform Guidance include:

  • A-21, “Cost Principles for Educational Institutions”;
  • A-87, “Cost Principles for State, Local and Indian Tribal Governments”;
  • A-102, “Grant Awards and Cooperative Agreements with State and Local Governments”;
  • A-110, “Uniform Administrative Requirements for Awards and Other Agreements with Institutions of Higher Education, Hospitals, and Other Nonprofit Organizations”; and
  • A-133, “Audits of States, Local Governments and Non-Profit Organizations”.

The Uniform Guidance also replaces provisions of OMB circulars that relate to Single Audit Act audits. OMB's consolidation of prior guidance was aimed at eliminating duplicative or nearly duplicative language in order to clarify existing guidance. The Uniform Guidance does not broaden the scope of applicability of the guidance superseded.

The policy reforms brought about by the Uniform Guidance include:

  • Eliminating duplicative/conflicting guidance;
  • Focusing on performance over compliance for accountability;
  • Encouraging efficient use of information technology (IT)/shared services;
  • Providing for consistent treatment of costs;
  • Limiting allowable costs for the best use of Federal resources;
  • Incorporating standard business processes using data definitions;
  • Strengthening oversight; and
  • Targeting audit requirements on risk of waste, fraud, and abuse.

The Uniform Guidance also streamlines audit procedures by:

  • Raising the Single Audit threshold from $500,000 to $750,000;
  • Raising the questioned cost limit in Single Audits from $10,000 to $25,000; and
  • Requiring assessment of Governmentwide audit quality to be conducted every 6 years (beginning in 2018).

A. Applicability of Uniform Guidance to HUD Grantees

In the December 19, 2014, joint, interim rule, HUD adopted and codified the Uniform Guidance as requirements for Federal awards at a new part, 2 CFR part 2400. HUD also amended 24 CFR parts 84 and 85, which had codified OMB Circulars superseded by 2 CFR part 200, by removing all substantive provisions and including a saving provision that provides that Federal awards made prior to December 26, 2014, will continue to be governed by parts 84 or 85 as codified in the 2013 edition of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) or as provided under the terms of the Federal award.

HUD implemented OMB Circular A-102 in 1988, by codifying its provisions in 24 CFR part 85 (March 11, 1988, 53 FR 8025, 8650). In 1994, HUD implemented OMB Circular A-110 by codifying its provisions in 24 CFR part 84 (September 13, 1994, 59 FR 47011). HUD codified the provisions of OMB Circular A-133 in 24 CFR parts 84 and 85 in 1997 (November 18, 1997, 62 FR 61617). In the intervening years since codifying the guidance in these circulars, HUD has cross-referenced applicable provisions of 24 CFR parts 84 and 85 throughout program regulations. Because HUD has implemented 2 CFR part 200 and removed, with certain exceptions, 24 CFR parts 84 and 85, this final rule conforms 24 CFR to the Uniform Guidance by removing references to 24 CFR parts 84 and 85 and replacing them with corresponding references to 2 CFR part 200.Start Printed Page 75932

Grant recipients and those who monitor grants are strongly encouraged to review the Uniform Guidance to obtain a better understanding of the Uniform Guidance and its implications for their Federal awards. The Federal Council on Financial Assistance Reform (COFAR) has provided additional tools to assist in the transition to the Uniform Guidance. These tools include:

Additional tools are available through links from COFAR's Web site homepage, https://cfo.gov/​cofar/​, in such sections (as of the date of this rule) as Resources for Understanding the Uniform Guidance, Measuring the Impact of the Uniform Guidance, the COFAR Training Webcast Series, Federal Spending Transparency, and Related Links.

In addition, grant recipients are encouraged to review guidance issued by HUD on February 26, 2015, entitled “Transition to 2 CFR part 200, Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards, Final Guidance” (Notice SD-2015-01). This guidance is available at http://portal.hud.gov/​hudportal/​documents/​huddoc?​id=​15-01sdn.pdf.

B. Other Conforming Changes

As noted above, HUD implemented OMB Circular A-133, “Audits of States, Local Governments, and Non-Profit Organizations,” in 24 CFR parts 84 and 85 in 1997. In HUD's 1997 interim rule, HUD also removed and reserved 24 CFR part 44—Non-Federal Audit Requirements for State and Local Government, and 24 CFR part 45—Non-Federal Audit Requirements for Institutions of Higher Education and Other Nonprofit Institutions, since these parts were no longer applicable because of HUD's implementation of the circular. In drafting this final rule, HUD discovered the inadvertent retention of references to 24 CFR parts 44 and 45. HUD is using this final rule to correct this oversight and is replacing outdated references to parts 44 and 45 with references to 2 CFR part 200, subpart F—Audit Requirements, or section(s) of that subpart, as applicable.

HUD is revising § 4.5 to conform to Section 233 of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Act, 2009 (Pub. L. 111-8, March 11, 2009). HUD is revising § 570.402(a)(1) to conform to HUD's final rule entitled “Removal of Obsolete Community Planning and Development (CPD) Regulations (79 FR 51893, September 2, 2014). HUD is also correcting other copy and typographical errors.

II. Justification for Final Rulemaking

HUD generally publishes a rule for public comment before issuing a rule for effect, in accordance with its own regulations on rulemaking at 24 CFR part 10. Part 10 provides for exceptions to the general rule if the agency finds good cause to omit advance notice and public participation. The good cause requirement is satisfied when prior public procedure is “impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest” (24 CFR 10.1). This rule updates references to regulatory provisions that have been removed by HUD in implementing the Uniform Guidance, and substitutes references to appropriate sections of the Uniform Guidance, corrects outdated references to 24 CFR parts 44 and 45, and makes other conforming changes. As a result, HUD finds that good cause exists to publish this rule for effect without first soliciting public comment.

III. Findings and Certifications

Regulatory Flexibility Act

The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) (5 U.S.C. 605(b)) generally requires an agency to conduct regulatory flexibility analysis of any rule subject to notice and comment rulemaking requirements, unless the agency certifies that the rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Because HUD has determined that good cause exists to issue this rule without prior public comment, this rule is not subject to the requirement to publish an initial or final regulatory flexibility analysis under the RFA as part of such action.

Executive Order 13132, Federalism

Executive Order 13132 (entitled “Federalism”) prohibits an agency from publishing any rule that has federalism implications if the rule either imposes substantial direct compliance costs on State and local governments and is not required by statute or the rule preempts State law, unless the agency meets the consultation and funding requirements of section 6 of the Executive order. This final rule will not have federalism implications and would not impose substantial direct compliance costs on State and local governments or preempt State law within the meaning of the Executive order.

Unfunded Mandates Reform

Section 202 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) [1] requires that an agency prepare a budgetary impact statement before promulgating a rule that includes a Federal mandate that may result in the expenditure by State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100 million or more in any 1 year. If a budgetary impact statement is required, section 205 of UMRA also requires an agency to identify and consider a reasonable number of regulatory alternatives before promulgating a rule.[2] However, the UMRA applies only to rules for which an agency publishes a general notice of proposed rulemaking. As discussed above, HUD has determined, for good cause, that prior notice and public comment is not required on this rule and, therefore, the UMRA does not apply to this final rule.

Matching requirement.

(a) The recipient must make matching contributions to supplement the recipient's ESG program in an amount that equals the recipient's fiscal year grant for ESG. This amount may include contributions to any project under the recipient's ESG program, including any subrecipient's ESG project, if the requirements in this section are met. The first $100,000 of a State's fiscal year grant is not required to be matched, but the benefit of this exception must pass to the state's subrecipients that are least capable of providing matching contributions. The match requirements under this section do not apply if the recipient is a territory.

(b) To be recognized as match for ESG, each contribution must meet the requirements under 2 CFR 200.306, except that:

(1) Notwithstanding 2 CFR 200.306(b)(4), matching contributions are not subject to the expenditure limits in § 576.100; and

(2) Notwithstanding 2 CFR 200.306(b)(5), the recipient may use funds from another Federal program as match for ESG, unless doing so would violate a specific statutory prohibition or the recipient or subrecipient counts ESG funds as match for that program.

(c) The recipient may count as match the value specified in 2 CFR 200.306(d) for any building the recipient or subrecipient donates for long-term use in the recipient's ESG program, provided that depreciation on the building is not counted as match or charged to any Federal award. If a third party donates a building to the recipient or subrecipient, the recipient may count as match either depreciation of the building and fair rental charges for the land for each year the building is used for the recipient's ESG program or, if the building is donated for long-term use in the recipient's ESG program, the fair market value of the capital assets, as specified in 2 CFR 200.306(h)(2), (i), and (j). To qualify as a donation for long-term use, the donation must be evidenced by a recorded deed or use restriction that is effective for at least 10 years after the donation date. If the donated building is renovated with ESG funds, the minimum period of use under § 576.102(c) may increase the period for which the building must be used in the recipient's ESG program.
