The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) published two Federal Register Notices on Tuesday, May 11, 2004 (69 FR 26275 and 69 FR 26281). The Notices implement changes affecting the location of policy guidance for grants and other agreements.
In the first notice, OMB established a single title in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) (i.e., title 2 of the CFR) along with two subtitles (i.e., subtitles A and B). Subtitle A of title 2 is to house OMB's guidance to Federal agencies for grants and agreements. Subtitle B of title 2 will house agency regulations implementing the OMB guidance.
By way of the second notice (scroll to the last page), OMB relocates the existing OMB Circular A-110 to title 2 in the CFR, subtitle A, chapter II, subchapter B, part 215.
Members of the public who wish to request that the agency issue, reconsider, modify, or rescind a significant guidance document, or to complain that the agency is not following the procedures in OMB's Bulletin or is improperly treating a significant guidance document as a binding requirement, may do so by contacting Greg Pompelli.
