FY 2011 Compliance Supplement: 61 Days Late and Counting

May 31, 2011 | By Adrianne Fielding | Post a Comment

Sorry, Charlie.  With the hours in May waning, it doesn’t look like the new Circular A-133 Compliance Supplement will be released by the Office of Budget and Management this month.  Cross your fingers that we’ll see it in June!

Speaking of waning, the CBO estimates that the employment effects and economic outputs related to the stimulus package will continue to wane over the remainder of 2011 and be negligible by 2012. The Congressional Budget Office released its latest report on the estimated number of jobs created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 — also known as ARRA, the Recovery Act, and the stimulus package.  The CBO’s blog post about the new report summarizes some of the positive economic impacts of ARRA’s policies have had through the first quarter of this year.

And shifting from jobs now to jobs in the future, a post today on the Department of Education’s blog features the impact of a School Improvement Grant on one rural Illinois high school.  As the product of a public school system in a rural, impoverished area in Maine, I love reading stories about how technology investments can improve teaching quality, student success and outcomes.

What funding-related issues are on your mind lately?
