GAO Updates Grants Community on Streamlining Efforts
Yesterday at the NGMA monthly training session, representatives from the Government Accountability Office (GAO) gave participants some insight on what to expect regarding grants streamlining efforts. Tom James and Betsy Hosler of the GAO introduced a “New Streamlining Engagement” effort that will:
“1) Evaluate the progress OMB and other federal grant governance bodies have made toward streamlining grants management across federal grant-making agencies; and
2) Assess what further actions should be taken to streamline grants management across grant-making agencies.”
Additionally, they confirmed that the status of the proposed notice for the “omnibus circular” is still expected to come out this month or next.
