2 CFR 200

Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS) Requirements

 

BACKGROUND On July 22, 2015, OMB issued a final guidance to Federal agencies to implement Section 872 of the Duncan Hunter National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2009 (hereafter referred to as "section 872"), as that statute applies to grants. The final guidance, found in sections of 2 CFR 200, implements section 872's requirements for recipients and Federal awarding agencies to report information that will appear in the OMB-designated integrity and performance system and for Federal awarding agencies to consider information the system contains about a non-Federal entity before awarding a grant to that non-Federal entity. The final guidance for grants, which also applies to cooperative agreements, addresses how the designated integrity and performance system and other information may be used in assessing recipient integrity. A copy of the Federal Register Notice is available at 80 FR 43301.

As section 872 required, OMB and the General Services Administration (GSA) have established an integrity and performance system that includes government-wide data with specified information related to the integrity and performance of entities awarded Federal grants and contracts. This system, currently designated as the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS), integrates various sources of information on the eligibility of organizations for Government awards and is currently available at https://www.fapiis.gov.
