Sec. 215.72 Adjustments & Responsibilities

This regulation addresses the closeout of the award, which does not affect the Federal awarding agency’s ability to enforce the terms and agreements of the award. Grantees must still uphold the policies of the Federal award agency agreement, such as record retention, audits, disallowance of cost, return of funds, and property management.
