The Superfund Technical Assistance Grant (TAG) Program is authorized under the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA). It supports community involvement in the cleanup of hazardous waste sites. TAG groups are required to spend their Federal grant funds according to Federal rules and regulations. The Government has established a policy for auditing grants to verify that grantees have followed these rules and regulations. This policy is described in the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-133, Audits of Institutions of Higher Education and Other Nonprofit Organizations (AD-A272 487). The purpose of this Fact Sheet is to provide an overview of the audit requirements for TAG recipients, in accordance with OMB Circular A-133, and to answer some frequently asked questions.
