Title: ●Financial Assistance Regulations--Conflict of Interest  

The Department of Energy (DOE) is proposing to amend its Financial Assistance Regulations at 2 CFR part 910 to ensure that the design, conduct, and reporting of projects wholly or in part funded under DOE financial assistance awards (e.g., a grant, cooperative agreement, or technology investment agreement) be free from bias resulting from financial conflicts of interest, organizational conflicts of interest and conflicts of commitment.  DOE is seeking comment on proposed amendments for non-Federal entities to identify, evaluate, resolve, and report financial conflicts of interest, organizational conflicts of interest, and conflicts of commitment in Federal financial assistance applications and awards as required by the Uniform administrative requirements, cost principles, and audit requirements for Federal awards at 2 CFR 200.112. This proposed rule would apply to Federal financial assistance applications from, and awards to, all types of non-Federal entities as described in 2 CFR 910.122, including individuals.
