Abstract: Reporting on the status of Federally owned property, including disposition, is necessitated in 2 CFR part 215, the “Uniform Administrative Requirements for Grants and Agreements with Institutions of Higher Education, Hospitals, and Other Non-Profit Organizations”, and the “Uniform Administrative Requirements for Grants and Agreements with State and Local Governments”, Additionally, Public Law 106-107, the Federal Financial Assistance Management Improvement Act requires that agencies ”simplify Federal financial assistance application and reporting requirements.” 31 U.S.C. 6101, Section 3.

Agencies are currently using a variety of forms to account for both Federally owned and grantee owned equipment and property. During the public consultation process mandated by Public Law 106-107, grant recipients requested a standard form to help them submit appropriate property information when required. The Public Law 106-107 Post Awards Subgroup developed a new standard form, the Tangible Personal Property Report, for submission of the required data. The form consists of the cover sheet (SF-428), three attachments to be used as required: Annual Report, SF-428-A; Final Report, SF-428-B; Disposition Request/Report, SF-428-C and a Supplemental Sheet, SF-428S to provide detailed individual item information when required. We are requesting a three-year clearance of this collection and that it be designated as a Common Form.
