Sneak Preview: OMB Delays FAPIIS Grants Implementation

November 3, 2011 | By Jerry Ashworth | Post a Comment

(This post is based on an upcoming article in the Federal Grants Management Handbook.) Federal agencies have more time to prepare information on grantees for the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS) website because the Office of Management and Budget has determined that it doesn’t have the budget to incorporate grantee data into the system in 2012.

Stephen Daniels, deputy director of the national policy, training and compliance division at the Environmental Protection Agency, told a National Grants Management Association luncheon that agencies have been developing guidance for submitting grantee information to FAPIIS. Stemming from section 872 of the Duncan Hunter National Defense Authorization Act (Pub. L. 110-417), FAPIIS is a governmentwide data system with a searchable website to enable agencies to determine whether an entity with a history of poor performance or integrity issues is worthy of receiving a contract. Certain information in FAPIIS is available to the public.
