    US Members: White House Seeks Input on Reporting Burdens for Federal Grants

    Date: August 25, 2015


    As part of the Administration’s ongoing efforts to reduce burdens on Federal contractors and grant recipients, and as part of its ongoing process for the Retrospective Review of Regulations, or “lookback,” it is inviting the nation’s colleges and universities to share their ideas and suggestions on how to improve the efficiency of the Federal contracts, grants, and other award programs in which they participate.   

     In mid-October, the Office of Management and Budget (“OMB”) will review the input it receives to identify specific suggestions and ideas that can be turned into burden-reducing solutions without compromising accountability and integrity. This process will help us to gain a better understanding of the compliance burdens facing colleges and universities with Federal contracts and grant awards, as well as enable us to find ways to standardize data, eliminate unnecessary duplication, and reduce compliance costs.
