State Agency Responsibility

A state agency is considered a pass-through entity when it receives federal awards and passes the funds to a subrecipient.  

Uniform Guidance, 2 CFR 200.513 and 2 CFR 200.331, describes the responsibilities of federal agencies and pass-through entities.  Specifically, Uniform Guidance, 2 CFR 200.331 prescribes the responsibilities of a pass-through entity for the federal awards it makes.  For more information about those responsibilities please refer to the > Uniform Guidance pages.  Previous guidance was provided by OMB Circular A-133, Subpart D Section .400(d)).
