Open Licensing Requirement for Direct Grant ProgramsProposed Rule2015-2793011/03/2015Education DepartmentThe Secretary proposes to amend the regulations regarding the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards in order to require that all Department grantees awarded direct competitive … The Secretary proposes to amend the regulations regarding the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards in order to require that all Department grantees awarded direct competitive grant funds openly license to the public all copyrightable intellectual property created with Department grant funds. These proposed changes would increase the Department's ability to be more strategic with limited resources, broadening the impact of its investments by allowing stakeholders, such as local educational agencies (LEAs), State educational agencies (SEAs), institutions of higher education (IHEs), and other entities, to benefit from these investments, even if they are not themselves recipients of Department funds. An open licensing requirement would also allow the Department to sustain innovations beyond the grant period by encouraging subject matter experts and users to adapt, update, and build upon grant products, stimulating quality and innovation in the development of educational resources. Finally, the proposed requirement would promote equity and access to Department-funded technology and materials and increase transparency and accountability for the Department and its grantees.open-licensing-requirement-for-direct-grant-programsFR-Doc-2015-27930

Federal Awarding Agency Regulatory Implementation of Office of Management and Budget's Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal AwardsRule2014-2869712/19/2014Executive Office of the PresidentThis joint interim final rule implements for all Federal award-making agencies the final guidance Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance) published by the Offic … This joint interim final rule implements for all Federal award-making agencies the final guidance Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance) published by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on December 26, 2013. This rule is necessary in order to incorporate into regulation and thus bring into effect the Uniform Guidance as required by OMB. Implementation of this guidance will reduce administrative burden and risk of waste, fraud, and abuse for the approximately $600 billion per year awarded in Federal financial assistance. The result will be more Federal dollars reprogrammed to support the mission, new entities able to compete and win awards, and ultimately a stronger framework to provide key services to American citizens and support the basic research that underpins the United States economy.federal-awarding-agency-regulatory-implementation-of-office-of-management-and-budgets-uniformFR-Doc-2014-28697

In accordance with Executive Order 13563, ``Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review,'' HUD reviewed its regulations to identify regulations that are ``outmoded, ineffective, insufficient or excessively burdensome.'' Following its review, HUD determined that the CPD regulations removed by this final rule are obsolete and unnecessary because they govern programs that are no longer funded or have been consolidated into other programs. No new grants or grant agreements making designations are being made under the regulations being removed. Existing grants or grant agreements entered into under the regulations being removed by this rule will continue to be governed by the regulations that existed immediately before the effective date of this final rule.removal-of-obsolete-community-planning-and-development-cpd-regulationsFR-Doc-2014-20654
