References. 41 CFR Part 29-70 Information. (a) In November 1983, a 20-agency task force under the President's Council on Management Improvement (PCMI), chaired by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), was established to explore streamlining grants management and review of OMB Circular A-102. on March 12, 1987, the President directed all affected agencies to simultaneously propose and subsequently adopt a common rule verbatim, except where inconsistent with statutory requirements. Affected agencies were to propose the common rule within 90 days and adopt a final common rule within one year. To meet this schedule, 23 agencies, including DOL, proposed a government-wide "common rule" in the June 9, 1987 Federal Register. OMB proposed a revised Circular A-102 in this same issue. on March 11, 1988, OMB published the final common rule establishing Uniform Administrative Requirements for Grants and Cooperative Agreements to State and Local Governments. As such, this final rule is applicable to Federally recognized Indian Tribal Governments. DOL's adoption of the "common regulation" is contained in 29 CFR Part 97. The final common rule has a government-wide effective date of October 1, 1988, consistent with the Federal fiscal year cycle. Since this date occurs three (3) months into the Program Year (PY) 1988 grant cycle, a departmental decision has been made to delay implementation until the PY 1989 grant cycle. A copy of this Federal Register is enclosed, along with a listing of some selected implementation factors. (b) In 1987, the PCMI directed that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and OMB jointly chair a follow-on effort to review and issue a common rule and revised circular for nongovernmental grantees covered by Circular A-110, "Grants and Agreements with Institutions of Higher Education, Hospitals, and Other Nonprofit Organizations". This regulation was reviewed, compared to the March 11, 1988, common rule, and the need to restore uniformity was considered. The March 11, 1988, common rule was amended to extend its applicability and make other necessary changes to cover nongovernmental organizations. The revised version of the common rule was published by OME in the Federal Register dated November 4, 1988, for comment by interested parties. A copy of that Federal Register is also enclosed. A final common rule for the combined circulars is scheduled to be issued in early 1989. When the revised version of the common rule is finalized it will apply to all Native American grantees, i.e., both tribal and non-tribal. Action. Tribal grantees should study the new regulations very carefully and apply them to their grant operations during PY 1989 and thereafter. Questions. Consult your DINAP Federal Representative.
