The US Office of Management and Budget has a notice in the Federal Register calling for comment on proposed changes to federal grant policies. The proposed reforms include ideas for changing the single audit framework, consolidating cost principles, and creating a uniform set of administrative requirements. “As you can see, some of these changes, if implemented, will have a broad, long-lasting effect on how federal grants are administered,” notes Sally Rockey, the deputy director of extramural research at the US National Institutes of Health, at her Rock Talk blog. OMB is accepting comments until March 29th.
