Wow, it’s been a busy week in the area of grants management…
On March 25, OMB amended 2 CFR Part 176 – the award term for the Recovery Act – to reflect changes in U.S. policy regarding Buy America requirements as they relate to international agreements with certain countries. Specifically, OMB has amended the threshold that applies to international Buy America agreements, added an international agreement to the Buy America policy, and added a country to an existing agreement.
