Agencies Issue Interim Final Rule for Codification of Data Access

Federal grants-awarding agencies have issued an interim final rule designed to codify agency implementation of the OMB revision to Circular A-110. This new rule, published in the March 16, 2000 Federal Register (65 Fed. Reg. 14406), does not set out new substantive requirements but instead advances implementation of OMB's earlier revision to Circular A-110 by federal agencies. The interim rule is effective April 17, 2000.

The notice includes amendments to the CFR for the following Departments and agencies:

  • Department of Agriculture
  • Department of Energy
  • National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  • Department of Commerce
  • Department of State
    Agency for International Development
  • Department of Justice
  • Department of Labor
  • Department of Defense
  • Department of Education
  • National Archives and Records Administration
  • Environmental Protection Agency
  • Department of the Interior
  • Department of Health and Human Services
  • Department of Transportation

The agencies are accepting comments on the new rule until May 15, 2000. (Comments are being accepted on the implementation aspects of the Data Access rule. This comment request does not imply a reopening of substantive comment on the earlier revisions to Circular A-110 itself.)

General comments should be sent to:

Mr. Charles Gale
Office of Grants Management
Department of Health and Human Services, Room 517-D
Hubert H. Humphrey Building
200 Independence Avenue, S.W.
Washington, D.C.     20201

Agency specific comments should be sent to the official listed for each agency, as specified in the Federal Register notice.
