SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

HHS is correcting its regulations in line with FR Doc. 2014-28697, published on December 19, 2014 (79 FR 75871), entitled “Federal Awarding Agency Regulatory Implementation of Office of Management and Budget's Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards”, the “Guidance for Reporting and Use of Information Concerning Recipient Integrity and Performance” to 2 CFR part 200, published on July 22, 2015 (80 FR 43301), and “Universal Identifier and System of Award Management; Corrections”, published on September 10, 2015 (80 FR 54407), made by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). HHS adopts the correcting amendments made by OMB. HHS is also making amendments to address citation or grammatical inconsistencies, to amend incomplete statements in the regulation, and to update existing HHS regulations to incorporate 45 CFR part 75. The correcting amendments will go into effect at the time of publication.

This is the second set of corrections. The first set of corrections was published in the Federal Register on January 20, 2016 (81 FR 3004). This document augments the corrections which were published in the Federal Register on January 20, 2016 (81 FR 3004). This document includes a corresponding change made by OMB to 2 CFR 200 on November 9, 2015 (80 FR 69111) that was omitted from the first set of corrections. This document also removes instruction 197c on page 3018 in the Federal Register on January 20, 2016 (81 FR 3004), which as published attempted to amend the wrong appendix in 45 CFR part 75. Because that instruction cited the wrong appendix, that amendment could not be incorporated into the CFR.

Correction

In the Federal Register issue of January 20, 2016 (81 FR 3004), make the following correction:

On page 3018, in the third column, remove amendatory instruction 197c.
