Summary of Federal Laws

The Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (FFATA)

 Public Law 109-282, as amended by Section 6205 (a) of Public Law 110-252 (see 31 USC 6101 note)
2 CFR Part 170;   2 CFR 170.320:   48 CFR Parts 4, 12, 42, and 52;

This law was signed Sept. 26, 2006. The intent is to assure transparency in government spending. To that end, information on  federal awards will be made available to the public via a single web page,

The FFATA Subaward Reporting System (FSRS) will collect data from Federal prime contractors on subcontracts they award.

See the GSA FFATA FSRS web page for a list of the reporting thresholds for grants and contracts. 


How to make it easier for prime contractors: 

COGR suggests amending your subrecipient agreements to require  your subcontractors to register in CCR, and then the fields required will automatically populate when you enter the DUNS number for the subcontractor.
