Federal Funding Accountability & Transparency Act
Date: November 17, 2011
The Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006 (FFATA), ensures that the public can access information on all entities and organizations receiving Federal funds. The Transparency Act also includes a requirement for recipients of Federal grants to report information about first-tier sub-awards and executive compensation under Federal assistance awards. Initially, only new, type 1 awards issued on or after October 1, 2010 were subject to the Transparency Act sub-award and executive compensation reporting requirements. These requirements now apply to all award types, both competing and non-competing awards. Please visit the NIH Transparency Act website for more information.
