Mandatory Disclosures

February 13, 2019

All Federal grantees must report certain activities potentially affecting their Federal award, including fraud and fraud-like matters, certain conflicts of interest, and relevant criminal, civil, and administrative proceedings.

Before the Uniform Guidance, much of this reporting was voluntary, but with the promulgation of the Uniform Guidance in December 2014, OMB has moved from voluntary disclosures to mandatory reporting (2 C.F.R. § 200.113) and has begun to call for self-reporting of certain conflicts of interest in grant-supported transactions (2 C.F.R. § 200.112). As of January 2016, mandatory reporting expanded further with requirements under FAPIIS (the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System). 

Understanding the scope of these reporting requirements is critical, yet the regulatory text is, in many places, ambiguous and there are a lot of questions about how to comply:

  • When does an activity reach the point of required disclosure (e.g., immediately upon discovery or after an investigation)?
  • What is considered "a timely manner" to report the matter?
  • How do you determine that a violation has occurred or an issue potentially affects your Federal award and should be disclosed?
  • Does your organization receive enough grant funds to trigger disclosures in FAPIIS?

This webinar will provide an overview of mandatory disclosures, FAPIIS, and how to make sure that your organization is prepared to comply.
