It's important to look up from the grindstone and see that you're aligned with your goals. And when you're a council effecting the most drastic grant reform in decades, it's key that you check in to see that your stakeholders are all onboard. The Council on Financial Assistance Reform (COFAR), the body that helped deliver the Uniform Guidance in late 2014 after collecting years of feedback, is now calling for voluntary feedback on the Uniform Guidance's overall impact on burden and waste, fraud, and abuse, and adequacy of opportuntities to engage in the process.
Responses received will be reviewed by the COFAR to help evaluate the extent to which the Uniform Guidance achieves the COFAR’s goals, and to identify opportunities to improve. This feedback tool will be available through March 17, 2015. The tool and other information about the Uniform Guidance are available on the COFAR site in the section titled “Measuring the Impact of the Uniform Guidance.” The OMB encourages stakeholders to circulate this opportunity to non-Federal entities who may be interested in providing feedback.
So, please take the time to offer your feedback, circulate this opportunity or blog post, and tell us how grant reform has affected your organization.
