DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

 
Discretionary Grant Programs

AGENCY: Department of Education.

ACTION: Notice announcing additional requirement for applicants and 
grantees.

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

SUMMARY: The Department of Education announces an additional 
requirement affecting applicants and grantees. We are taking this 
action to conform our requirements with final guidance issued by the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on September 14, 2010 (Financial 
Assistance Use of Universal Identifier and Central Contractor 
Registration). The new guidance affects an applicant's or grantee's 
registration of its Dun and Bradstreet Data Universal Numbering System 
(DUNS) Number and its Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) with the 
Central Contractor Registration (CCR) database.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Greg Vick, U.S. Department of 
Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20202-0170. 
Telephone: (202) 245-6147 or by e-mail: gregory.vick@ed.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In each notice inviting applications for 
grant awards, we include requirements governing an applicant's DUNS 
Number and TIN and specify that to do business with the Department, an 
applicant must register those numbers with the CCR, the Government's 
primary registrant database.
    In its final guidance issued under 2 CFR Part 25 and published in 
the Federal Register on September 14, 2010 (75 FR 55671), OMB added a 
requirement that an entity doing business with the Department must 
maintain an active CCR registration with current information while its 
application is under review and, if it is awarded a grant, during the 
project period.
    The final guidance took effect on October 1, 2010, which made it 
applicable to every grant competition with an application deadline date 
on or after October 1, 2010. However, on or before the effective date, 
we had published a number of notices inviting applications that had 
application deadline dates on or after October 1, 2010, but that did 
not include the new requirement with regard to maintaining an active 
CCR registration.
    This notice serves to inform applicants and potential applicants 
under those affected competitions that the new requirement applies to 
them, and each such potential applicant must, therefore, maintain an 
active CCR registration during the time its application is under review 
and, if funded, during the project period. However, this requirement 
does not affect the submission of their applications and does not 
require any applicant to amend, withdraw, or resubmit its application.
    The affected competitions and the publication date in the Federal 
Register of each notice inviting applications are shown below in order 
of Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number. Questions 
about the applicability of this notice to any application submitted 
under these programs should be directed to the program contact 
identified for each program.
