Federal Statutes

Federal Grants and Cooperative Agreements Act (FGCAA) of 1977 (31 U.S.C. §§ 6301-6308)

FGCAA establishes government-wide standards for agencies to use in selecting the most appropriate funding instrument - procurements contracts, grants, or cooperative agreements.

Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (5 U.S.C. § 306; 31 U.S.C. §§ 1105, 1115, 1116-1119, 9703-9704)

Requires government agencies to set program goals, evaluate performance based on those goals, and report on the results of that evaluation to Congress.  The results are part of the budgetary decision-making process.

Single Audit Act of 1984 and Amendments of 1996 (31 U.S.C. § 7501 et seq.)

Establishes uniform audit requirements for state, local, and Indian tribal governments. A single or program-specific audit is required of non-federal entities spending $500,000 or more in a year in federal awards.

Federal Administrative Requirements

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issues government-wide circulars for managing grants that apply to all Federal executive agencies. When these agencies are required to apply the directives, the effect on grantees is often the same as regulation. Among the circulars relevant to grants administration are those that have to do with administrative requirements, cost principles, and audits.
