Audits of States, Local Governments, and Non-Profit Organizations; OMB Circular A-133 Compliance Supplement
This notice announces the availability of the 2011 OMB Circular A-133 Compliance Supplement (Supplement). The notice also offers interested parties an opportunity to comment on the 2011 Supplement. The 2011 Supplement adds nineteen new programs, including five programs added to existing clusters. It deletes two programs and has also been updated for program changes and technical corrections. The two deleted programs are Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) 84.037, Reading First State Grants, and CFDA 84.938,Hurricane Education Recovery, which are no longer active (i.e., no funds are being spent by recipients), and have been archived in the CFDA.
In total, the 2011 Supplement includes 248 individual programs. A list of changes to the 2011 Supplement can be found at Appendix V. It updates Appendix VII that provides an audit alert and compliance requirements regarding the grant programs funded under American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Due to its length, the 2011 Supplement is not included in this Notice. See ADDRESSES for information about how to obtain a copy either on line or through the Government Printing Office.

All comments on the 2011 Supplement must be in writing and received by October 31, 2011. Late comments will be considered to the extent practicable. We received no comments on the 2010 Supplement.
