OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET

2 CFR Subtitle A, Chapter I, and Part 25


Financial Assistance Use of Universal Identifier and Central 
Contractor Registration

AGENCY: Office of Federal Financial Management, Office of Management 
and Budget.

ACTION: Final guidance.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: OMB is issuing guidance to Federal agencies concerning two 
requirements for financial assistance applicants and recipients, and 
one requirement for first-tier subrecipients. An agency under the 
guidance must require applicants other than individuals, with some 
specific exceptions, to have Dun and Bradstreet Data Universal 
Numbering System (DUNS) numbers and maintain current registrations in 
the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) database. An agency must 
require applicants and recipients of grants and cooperative agreements 
to comply with the DUNS number and CCR requirements by October 1, 2010 
and require applicants and recipients of all other financial assistance 
types to comply by October 1, 2011. The guidance provides standard 
wording for a new award term that each agency must

[[Page 55672]]

include in its financial assistance awards to require recipients to 
maintain current CCR registrations, which requires that they also have 
DUNS numbers. The guidance also specifies that each recipient may make 
subawards only to entities that have DUNS numbers.

DATES: Effective September 14, 2010.

Financial Management, Office of Management and Budget, telephone (202)

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Summary of Changes

    On February 18, 2010 (75 FR 7316), OMB proposed a number of changes 
to title 2 of the Code of Federal Regulations (2 CFR). Some of the 
proposed changes were to provide new guidance to agencies that was 
needed to implement section 872 of the Duncan Hunter National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2009 (Pub. L. 110-417, hereafter 
referred to as ``section 872''), as that statute applies to grants. 
Some of the other proposed changes were to update guidance that existed 
elsewhere and relocate it in 2 CFR to provide needed context for the 
new guidance implementing section 872. The remaining changes were 
administrative in nature, to create seven subchapters in 2 CFR, Chapter 
I, as a better organizational framework for existing and future content 
in that chapter.
    OMB now is finalizing some of those proposed changes, with the rest 
to follow separately. The substantive changes being finalized relate to 
the use of DUNS numbers and registration in the CCR. These changes are 
being finalized separately and expedited because they will enhance the 
quality of information available to the public when recipients begin on 
October 1, 2010 to report information on subawards, as required by the 
Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006 (Pub. L. 
109-282, as amended, hereafter referred to as ``the Transparency 
Act''). OMB also is finalizing the administrative changes proposed in 
February 2010, by creating the new subchapters in 2 CFR, Chapter I.

II. Relationship to Existing Requirements

    The requirement for applicants to have DUNS numbers is not new. OMB 
established the DUNS requirement for applicants for grants or 
cooperative agreements in 2003. The policy was published in the Federal 
Register [68 FR 38402] and communicated to Federal agencies in OMB 
Memorandum M-03-16. The requirement was broadened to include applicants 
for other types of Federal financial assistance subject to the 
Transparency Act in 2008, in OMB Memorandum 08-19. Therefore, the sole 
effect of the guidance following this preamble is to relocate the 
requirement in the Code of Federal Regulations, in 2 CFR part 25.
    There are several existing requirements concerning applicants' 
registration in the CCR. For example, an applicant must be registered 
in CCR if it wants to submit its applications electronically through 
Grants.gov. In another example, several providers of payment management 
services require that recipients be registered in CCR before receiving 
payments. As yet another example, OMB Memorandum M-09-10 required 
applicants for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act 
of 2009 (Pub. L. 111-5, hereafter referred to as ``the Recovery Act'') 
to register in CCR. The guidance following this preamble broadens the 
existing requirements to all other applicants for Federal financial 
assistance awards subject to the Transparency Act.
    Similarly, the requirement for recipients to maintain their 
registration in the CCR throughout the period of performance under 
their awards is not entirely new. The final OMB guidance on reporting 
under the Recovery Act, OMB Memorandum M-09-21, requires recipients to 
register in CCR in order to access the FederalReporting.gov site at 
which they must report. That memorandum also allows a recipient to 
delegate some reporting responsibilities to its first-tier 
subrecipients, in which case those subrecipients must register in the 
CCR in order to report (a first-tier subrecipient is one that receives 
a subaward directly from the prime recipient, as distinct from a lower-
tier subrecipient that receives a subaward from another subrecipient). 
For prime recipients, the guidance following this preamble broadens the 
existing Recovery Act requirement to recipients of other awards subject 
to the Transparency Act. Although the guidance proposed in February 
2010 would have broadened the CCR requirement to first-tier 
subrecipients, the final guidance being adopted at this time does not 
require CCR registration for any subrecipients.
    The standard award term that agencies must use to communicate the 
DUNS and CCR requirements to recipients is new. It will help ensure 
Government-wide uniformity, a benefit for recipients that receive 
awards from multiple agencies.
    Applicants and recipients of grants and cooperative agreements must 
comply with the policy by October 1, 2010. Applicants and recipients of 
all other financial assistance types must comply by a date to be 
provided by the agency.

III. Comments and Responses

    We received comments on the proposed guidance in 2 CFR part 25 from 
three State agencies and three Federal agencies. We considered the 
comments in developing the final guidance, which closely parallels the 
proposed guidance. We made some changes based on the recommendations 
and others for clarity. The following paragraphs summarize the comments 
and our responses:
    Comment: Three State agencies commented on the requirements for 
first-tier subrecipients in the award term in Appendix A to the 
proposed 2 CFR part 25. Two agencies cited burdens on subrecipients and 
the Transparency Act's definition of ``Federal award'' as reasons to 
exempt a subrecipient from the requirement to register in the CCR if 
the amount of the subaward is $25,000 or less. The third agency asked 
whether the prime recipient would be required to submit verification of 
subrecipients' compliance with the CCR requirement to the Federal 
agency and, if so, how frequently it would be required to do so. One of 
the agencies also recommended exempting subrecipients with awards of 
$25,000 or less from the requirement to obtain a DUNS number.
    Response: Agree in part. We revised the final guidance so that 
there is no requirement at this time for any subrecipient to register 
in the CCR. Concerning the requirement for first-tier subrecipients to 
obtain a DUNS number, we did not adopt a $25,000 threshold. The DUNS 
number still is the only identifier with the advantages that led us to 
establish it in 2003 as the universal identifier for recipients of 
grants and cooperative agreements (see the preamble to 68 FR 38403, 
June 27, 2003). We do not agree that the one-time requirement to obtain 
a DUNS number is an undue hardship. We appreciate that first-tier 
subrecipients who are not also prime recipients of other Federal awards 
may need to adjust their procedures and systems initially to 
accommodate the DUNS number requirement, but we believe that the long-
term benefits to transparency justify those changes.
    Comment: Two Federal agencies commented on the definition of 
``award''

[[Page 55673]]

in section 25.305 of the proposed 2 CFR part 25. One agency questioned 
whether excluding technical assistance and transfers of Federally owned 
property from the definition could have the inadvertent effect of 
exempting them from the effects of suspension and debarment actions 
taken under 2 CFR part 180, in which the term ``nonprocurement 
transaction'' is defined in a way that would include them. The second 
agency suggested adding the words ``for the purposes of this part'' to 
the definition.
    Response: Agree to add ``for the purposes of this part'' for added 
clarity, as the term ``award'' must be defined in each part of 2 CFR in 
a way that conforms to the purpose of that part. For example, the 
definitions of ``award'' in 2 CFR parts 182 and 225 differ 
significantly. Part 182 implements the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 
(41 U.S.C. 701-707, as amended) and defines ``award'' to include grants 
and cooperative agreements. The definition of ``award'' in 2 CFR part 
225, ``Cost Principles for State, Local, and Indian Tribal Governments 
(OMB Circular A-87),'' includes not only grants and other financial 
assistance awards but also cost reimbursement contracts, because that 
part specifies principles and standards for determining costs for that 
wider range of Federal funding instruments.
    Comment: A Federal agency suggested that we delete paragraph 
25.200(a)(2) in the proposed 2 CFR part 25 because it would be 
burdensome for an agency to modify every program announcement it 
already had issued under which it anticipated making awards after 
October 1, 2010. It further noted that the wording included some 
announcements under which applications already had been submitted.
    Response: We disagree. We did not delete paragraph 25.200(a)(2), as 
suggested. We revised it to require agencies to notify potential 
applicants only in previously issued announcements that have due dates 
for applications or plans after October 1, 2010, and not all 
announcements under which awards would be made after that date. This 
does not change the fact that all new awards, as defined in the policy, 
after October 1, 2010 must reflect this reporting requirement. 
Providing potential applicants with more complete information about the 
requirements with which they will have to comply if their applications 
are successful is important, in order to enable them to make better 
informed decisions on whether to invest the time and expense in 
preparing applications. That benefit for potential applicants justifies 
the burdens on agencies associated with issuing amendments to the 
previously issued announcements.

Subpart A-General


Sec.  25.100  Purposes of this part.

    This part provides guidance to agencies to establish:
    (a) The Dun and Bradstreet (D&B) Data Universal Numbering System 
(DUNS) number as a universal identifier for Federal financial 
assistance applicants, as well as recipients and their direct 
subrecipients.
    (b) The Central Contractor Registration (CCR) as the repository for 
standard information about applicants and recipients.


Sec.  25.105  Types of awards to which this part applies.

    This part applies to an agency's grants, cooperative agreements, 
loans, and other types of Federal financial assistance included in the 
definition of ``award'' in Sec.  25.305. The requirements in this part 
must be implemented for grants and cooperative agreements by October 1, 
2010. The requirements in this part must be implemented for all other 
award forms listed in Sec.  25.200 requirement at a date to be 
specified in the future.


Sec.  25.110  Types of recipient and subrecipient entities to which 
this part applies.

    (a) General. Through an agency's implementation of the guidance in 
this part, this part applies to all entities, other than those exempted 
in paragraphs (b), (c), and (d) of this section, that--
    (1) Apply for or receive agency awards; or
    (2) Receive subawards directly from recipients of those agency 
awards.
    (b) Exemptions for individuals. None of the requirements in this 
part apply to an individual who applies for or receives Federal 
financial assistance as a natural person (i.e., unrelated to any 
business or non-profit organization he or she may own or operate in his 
or her name).
    (c) Exemptions for Federal agencies. The requirement in this part 
to maintain a current registration in the CCR does not apply to an 
agency of the Federal

[[Page 55674]]

Government that receives an award from another agency.
    (d) Other exemptions. (1) Under a condition identified in paragraph 
(d)(2) of this section, an agency may exempt an entity from an 
applicable requirement to obtain a DUNS number, register in the CCR, or 
both.
    (i) In that case, the agency must use a generic DUNS number in data 
it reports to USASpending.gov if reporting for a prime award to the 
entity is required by the Federal Funding Accountability and 
Transparency Act (Pub. L. 109-282, hereafter cited as ``Transparency 
Act'').
    (ii) Agency use of a generic DUNS should be used rarely for prime 
award reporting because it prevents prime awardees from being able to 
fulfill the subward or executive compensation reporting required by the 
Transparency Act.
    (2) The conditions under which an agency may exempt an entity are--
    (i) For any entity, if the agency determines that it must protect 
information about the entity from disclosure, to avoid compromising 
classified information or national security or jeopardizing the 
personal safety of the entity's clients.
    (ii) For a foreign entity applying for or receiving an award or 
subaward for a project or program performed outside the United States 
valued at less than $25,000, if the agency deems it to be impractical 
for the entity to comply with the requirement(s).
    (3) Agencies' use of generic DUNS numbers, as described in 
paragraphs (d)(1) and (2) of this section, should be rare. Having a 
generic DUNS number limits a recipient's ability to use Governmentwide 
systems that are needed to comply with some reporting requirements.


Sec.  25.115  Deviations.

    Deviations from this part require the prior approval of the Office 
of Management and Budget (OMB).

Subpart B--Policy


Sec.  25.200  Requirements for program announcements, regulations, and 
application instructions.

    (a) Each agency that awards types of Federal financial assistance 
included in the definition of ``award'' in Sec.  25.305 must include 
the requirements described in paragraph (b) of this section in each 
program announcement, regulation, or other issuance containing 
instructions for applicants that either:
    (1) Is issued on or after the effective date of this part; or
    (2) Has application or plan due dates after October 1, 2010.
    (b) The program announcement, regulation, or other issuance must 
require each entity that applies and does not have an exemption under 
Sec.  25.110 to:
    (1) Be registered in the CCR prior to submitting an application or 
plan;
    (2) Maintain an active CCR registration with current information at 
all times during which it has an active Federal award or an application 
or plan under consideration by an agency; and
    (3) Provide its DUNS number in each application or plan it submits 
to the agency.
    (c) For purposes of this policy:
    (1) The applicant is the entity that meets the agency's or 
program's eligibility criteria and has the legal authority to apply and 
to receive the award. For example, if a consortium applies for an award 
to be made to the consortium as the recipient, the consortium must have 
a DUNS number. If a consortium is eligible to receive funding under an 
agency program but the agency's policy is to make the award to a lead 
entity for the consortium, the DUNS number of the lead entity will be 
used.
    (2) A ``program announcement'' is any paper or electronic issuance 
that an agency uses to announce a funding opportunity, whether it is 
called a ``program announcement,'' ``notice of funding availability,'' 
``broad agency announcement,'' ``research announcement,'' 
``solicitation,'' or some other term.
    (3) To remain registered in the CCR database after the initial 
registration, the applicant is required to review and update on an 
annual basis from the date of initial registration or subsequent 
updates its information in the CCR database to ensure it is current, 
accurate and complete.


Sec.  25.205  Effect of noncompliance with a requirement to obtain a 
DUNS number or register in the CCR.

    (a) An agency may not make an award to an entity until the entity 
has complied with the requirements described in Sec.  25.200 to provide 
a valid DUNS number and maintain an active CCR registration with 
current information (other than any requirement that is not applicable 
because the entity is exempted under Sec.  25.110).
    (b) At the time an agency is ready to make an award, if the 
intended recipient has not complied with an applicable requirement to 
provide a DUNS number or maintain an active CCR registration with 
current information, the agency:
    (1) May determine that the applicant is not qualified to receive an 
award; and
    (2) May use that determination as a basis for making an award to 
another applicant.


Sec.  25.210  Authority to modify agency application forms or formats.

    To implement the policies in Sec. Sec.  25.200 and 25.205, an 
agency may add a DUNS number field to application forms or formats 
previously approved by OMB, without having to obtain further approval 
to add the field.


Sec.  25.215  Requirements for agency information systems.

    Each agency that makes awards (as defined in Sec.  25.325) must 
ensure that systems processing information related to the awards, and 
other systems as appropriate, are able to accept and use the DUNS 
number as the universal identifier for financial assistance applicants 
and recipients.


Sec.  25.220  Use of award term.

    (a) To accomplish the purposes described in Sec.  25.100, an agency 
must include in each award (as defined in Sec.  25.305) the award term 
in Appendix A to this part.
    (b) An agency may use different letters and numbers than those in 
Appendix A to this part to designate the paragraphs of the award term, 
if necessary, to conform the system of paragraph designations with the 
one used in other terms and conditions in the agency's awards.

Subpart C--Definitions


Sec.  25.300  Agency.

Appendix A to Part 25--Award Term

I. Central Contractor Registration and Universal Identifier 
Requirements

A. Requirement for Central Contractor Registration (CCR)

    Unless you are exempted from this requirement under 2 CFR 
25.110, you as the recipient must maintain the currency of your 
information in the CCR until you submit the final financial report 
required under this award or receive the final payment, whichever is 
later. This requires that you review and update the information at 
least annually after the initial registration, and more frequently 
if required by changes in your information or another award term.

B. Requirement for Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) Numbers

    If you are authorized to make subawards under this award, you:
    1. Must notify potential subrecipients that no entity (see 
definition in paragraph C of this award term) may receive a subaward 
from you unless the entity has provided its DUNS number to you.

provided its DUNS number to you.

C. Definitions

    For purposes of this award term:
    1. Central Contractor Registration (CCR) means the Federal 
repository into which an entity must provide information required

about registration procedures may be found at the CCR Internet site 
(currently at http://www.ccr.gov).
    2. Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number means the nine-
digit number established and assigned by Dun and Bradstreet, Inc. 
(D&B) to uniquely identify business entities. A DUNS number may be 
obtained from D&B by telephone (currently 866-705-5711) or the 
Internet (currently at http://fedgov.dnb.com/webform).
    3. Entity, as it is used in this award term, means all of the

    a. This term means a legal instrument to provide support for the 
performance of any portion of the substantive project or program for 
which you received this award and that you as the recipient award to 
an eligible subrecipient.
    b. The term does not include your procurement of property and 
services needed to carry out the project or program (for further 
explanation, see Sec. ----.210 of the attachment to OMB Circular A-
