SUMMARY:

This notice announces the availability of the 2016 OMB 2 CFR 200, Subpart F—Compliance Supplement (Supplement). The notice also offers interested parties an opportunity to comment on the 2016 Supplement. The 2016 Supplement adds two new programs and deletes five programs (that are completed under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act). It has also been updated for program changes and technical corrections. In addition, it removed two compliance requirements from the standard list of such requirements: Davis Bacon (formerly compliance requirement D) and Real Property Acquisition and Relocation Assistance (formerly compliance requirement K). Part 3—Compliance Requirements is divided into two subparts. Subpart 3.1 is applicable to awards issued prior to December 26, 2014 and Subpart 3.2 is applicable to awards issued on or after December 26, 2014.

The two added programs are:

  • CFDA 14.225—Community Development Block Grants/Special Purpose Grants/Insular Areas to form a cluster with CFDA 14.218, Community Development Block Grants/Entitlement Grants.
  • CFDA 14.272—National Disaster Resilience Competition (CDBG-NDR) to form a cluster with CFDA 14.269, Hurricane Sandy Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery Grants (CDBG-DR).

The five deleted programs are:

  • CFDA 11.010—Community Trade Adjustment Assistance.
  • CFDA 14.880—Family Unification Program (FUP).
  • CFDA 14.257—Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP) (Recovery Act Funded).
  • CFDA 81.128, Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program.
  • CFDA 84.388—School Improvement Grants, Recovery Act.

Part 6—Internal Control was updated to be consistent with the guidance contained in “Standards for Internal Control in the Federal Government” issued by the Comptroller General of the United States (Green Book) and the “Internal Control Integrated Framework” (revised in 2013), issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO).

Highlights of the changes in the Appendices include the following:

  • Appendix II provides the dates of agencies' issuance of final rules or regulatory actions to implement the OMB Guidance in 2 CFR 200.
  • Appendix III lists the National Single Audit Coordinators and Single Audit Key Management Liaisons, along with their distinct roles for answering public inquiries regarding Single Audit.
  • A list of changes to the 2016 Supplement can be found at Appendix V.

Due to its length, the 2016 Supplement is not included in this Notice.
