CHAPTER I: GOVERNOR'S OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET
PART 7000 GRANT ACCOUNTABILITY AND TRANSPARENCY ACT
SECTION 7000.60 PROGRAM-SPECIFIC EXCEPTIONS AND EXEMPTIONS TO UR AND GATA
Section 7000.60 Program-specific Exceptions and Exemptions to UR and GATA
a) The Uniform Guidance exception rule is stated at UR section 200.102. GATA modeled its exception process after the federal process. If the federal OMB and awarding agency has granted an exception, GATU will accept that exception.
b) UR section 200.101 cites types of awards with exceptions to UR. All cited exceptions shall apply to federal and federal pass-through awards. If the State of Illinois funds an equivalent program, the State award will be subject to the same exceptions as the federal award it mirrors.
c) When a grant program is listed as exempt under UR section 200.101, the State agency must review the grant-specific requirements to determine if there are additional, grant-specific rules modeled after UR.
d) Per UR, exceptions shall not be given for UR section 200.330 through 200.332 or subpart F – Audit Requirements. All grants are subject to post-award requirements, awardee and subrecipient monitoring and management, and audit requirements.
e) State agencies shall complete and submit a "GATA Request for Exception Form" that must include the statutory federal or State reference authorizing the exception. All exceptions must be based on statutory authority.
f) GATU shall review all Requests for Exceptions and consult with GOMB General Counsel as necessary for final determination on the exception request.
g) All exceptions shall be requested in writing from the State agency and authorized in writing by GATU in the official Notice of Exception.
h) All federal, federal pass-through and State-funded programs in the State of Illinois will be assumed to be subject to UR and GATA unless GATU has distributed a written Notice of Exception to the requesting State agency.
i) Based on the Notice of Exception, State agencies are required to record the exceptions in the CSFA, the NOSA and the Uniform Grant Agreement.
