The memo states that despite the rapid pace of spending of ARRA funds over the past 30 months, there remains billions in ARRA funds that, although they have been obligated, have not yet been outlayed. In light of the current economic situation and the need for further economic stimulus, OMB is now asking federal agencies to spend these remaining ARRA funds as quickly and efficiently as possible by September 30, This new policy would compress the period of availability for the bulk of remaining funds in discretionary grant programs into the next two years.
SPO anticipates that other federal agencies will communicate the requirements of Memorandum by adding these requirements to new grant agreements, modifying terms and conditions of existing grant agreements, or other appropriate written means.
Agencies also are being directed to revise the terms of ARRA discretionary grant agreements, to the extent permitted by law, to provide for reclamation of funds that remain unspent after September 30,absent a waiver issued by OMB.
SPO will update this page as needed with new campus guidance. NSF will be issuing guidance on cooperative agreements separately.

The following is a synopsis of the Notice: The new terms and conditions will indicate that awardees may not extend a project beyond September 30, without prior approval from NIH.
NIH also has provided guidance on the process for requesting prior approval to extend a project beyond September 30, as well as the criteria NIH will use to evaluate such requests. All requests to extend a project beyond September 30, will need to be received by NIH on or before June 1,regardless of the current project period end date.
At this time NIH has not determined the need for waiver requests to OMB, so NIH continues to strongly encourage grantees to accelerate expenditures for all active ARRA grants regardless of the current or projected project period end date.
Should a PI need to extend his or her project beyond September 30,the PI must submit a request to NIH to extend the project and provide a justification based on the following criteria: This request and justification must be submitted to NIH by June 1,regardless of the current project period.Independent contractor instructors will need assistance from their Extension representative to help create the course or project site, add instructors as a Non-UC Berkeley Users, and assign them the role of instructor so that they can access and manage the site thereafter.
