Notice of proposed policy issuance directive. (Office of Federal Financial Management Policy Directive on Financial Assistance Program Announcements.)
The Office of Federal Financial Management (OFFM) proposes to establish a standard format for Federal agency announcements of funding opportunities under programs that award discretionary grants or cooperative agreements. The purpose of the standard format is to have information organized in a consistent way in program announcements for the hundreds of Federal programs that make financial assistance awards to non-Federal recipients. The Federal awarding agencies jointly developed this format as one part of the implementation of the Federal Financial Assistance Management Improvement Act of 1999 (Pub. L. 106-107). Consistent with the streamlining and simplification purposes of that public law, a standard format will make it easier for potential applicants to quickly find the information they need.
All comments on this proposal should be in writing, and must be received by October 11, 2002.
