Federal Agency Weekly is an email transmitted on Friday afternoons to subscribers to MANAGING FEDERAL GRANTS for Colleges and Universities. It includes all links posted for the prior week on the subscriber Web site in Federal Agency Daily, which tracks federal grants policy issuances, rulemakings, guidance development and OIG reports and publications. The primary focus of Federal Agency Daily and Weekly is agency-wide grants management issues related to extramural research grants from NIH, NSF, NASA, and DOD, though broader coverage of NIH is provided with the inclusion of NIH program activities. In general, the specifics of individual funding opportunities are not covered.
