For the reasons stated in the preamble, the Office of Management and Budget proposes to amend 2 CFR parts Start Printed Page 3775 25, 170, 200 and add part 183 as set forth below:
This part applies to a Federal awarding agency’s grants, cooperative agreements, loans, and other types of Federal financial assistance as defined in § .
(a) General. Through a Federal awarding agency’s implementation of the guidance in this part, this part applies to all Federal agencies and non-Federal entities, other than those exempted by statute or exempted in paragraphs (b), and (c) of this section, that-
(b) Exemptions for individuals. None of the requirements in this part apply to an individual who applies for or receives Federal financial assistance as a natural person (i.e., unrelated to any business or non-profit organization he or she e).
(c) Other exemptions required by law (e.g. statutory). (1) Under a condition identified in paragraph (c)(2) of this section, a Federal awarding agency may exempt a non-Federal entity or Federal agency from an applicable requirement to obtain a unique entity identifier, register in the SAM, or both.
(i) In that case, the Federal awarding agency must use a generic unique entity identifier in data it reports to if reporting for a prime award to the non-Federal entity or Federal agency VA title loans is required by the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (Pub. L. 109-282, hereafter cited as “Transparency Act”).
(ii) Federal awarding agency use of a generic unique entity identifier should be used rarely for prime award reporting because it prevents prime awardees from being able to fulfill the subaward or executive compensation reporting required by the Transparency Act.
