The Office of Grants Management (OGM) provides accurate, timely, centralized grants management expertise to all Employment and Training Administration (ETA) offices and stakeholders throughout the grants life cycle.

Through delegated Grant Officer authorities, OGM delivers centralized grants administration and policy expertise to support pre-award, award, period of performance, audit resolution and closeout of federal assistance awards made by ETA.

Our office works collaboratively with program offices to develop grant solicitations, oversee application analysis and review and is the deciding official for federal assistance awards. Our office develops and implements procedures to resolve audits and investigations of U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) grantees, and acts on grantee requests for waivers of liability. Our office develops and disseminates financial and grants management policies and procedures for grantees to ensure compliance with these requirements. We also provide training and technical assistance to offices, grantees and other organizations. Lastly, our office represents DOL at Council on Federal Financial Assistance (COFFA) and has assisted in the release of other government-wide federal assistance forums.

Important Update: The Uniform Guidance (2 CFR 200) Has Been Revised!

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) released updates to 2 CFR Parts 1, 25, 170, 175, 180, 182, 183, 184, and 200 in the Federal Register on April 22, 2024.

If you’ve ever received a Federal grant or cooperative agreement, then you should be familiar with the Office of Management and Budget’s Uniform Guidance (UG) found at 2 CFR 200. The UG was created to streamline the Federal government’s guidance on Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal awards.

OMB periodically reviews the Uniform Guidance in accordance with 2 CFR 200.109. For example, OMB made further revisions to the Uniform Guidance in 2020. With the 2024 revisions, grant recipients will see some of the following changes:

  • Added Whistleblower protections

  • Changed prior approval requirements for certain items

  • Raised the de minimis rate from 10% to 15%

  • Raised the single audit threshold  from $750,000 to $1 million

  • Equipment acquisition costs rose from $5,000 to $10,000

The revised guidance will be implemented on 10/1/24 for award recipients.
