OMB Uniform Administrative Requirements: CARES Act & ARPA

In 2013, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued new Uniform Administrative Requirements to consolidate several OMB Circulars into one set of regulations (2 CFR Part 200) that many refer to as the "Super Circular".  With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress provided special emergency relief funding through the CARES Act of 2020, Public Law 117-2 with significant sums of federal funds targeted for tribal governments.  Federal emergency relief funds from the above appropriations were distributed directly to tribal governments by the U.S Treasury while other emergency funds were distributed to tribes by agencies like BIA, IHS, and HUD.  Congress is currently in deliberations on a new Bipartisan Infrastructure and Jobs Act for the nations infrastructure needs.  Federal emergency relief funds are generally subject to the provisions of the OMB Uniform Administrative Requirements.

In August 2020, OMB published amendments to the 2013 Uniform Administrative Requirements partly to respond to the emergency relief funds through CARES Act and ARPA.  Then in August 2020, OMB issued its annual Audit Compliance Supplement which applies to audits of all federal programs, only to issue its 2020 Audit Compliance Addendum specifically to address audits of funds under CARES Act and ARPA.  While the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act has not been enacted, funds under the new legislation will also be governed by the OMB Uniform Administrative Requirements and Single Audit Act.

OMB Uniform Requirements govern federal grant awards, and includes: grant reporting, cost principles, indirect costs, grant match and cost sharing, property management, and annual audits.  The regulations apply to Indian tribes, tribal organizations, states and local governments, non-profit organizations, hospitals, universities, etc.  This course will address similarities and differences in OMB rules as they pertain to discretionary grant programs; entitlement programs (Indian Self-Determination Act programs); and will provides a special focus on CARES Act and ARPA compliance and reporting requirements.
