  2. Additional agencies are expected to codify OMB Circular A-110 (2 CFR 215); in the meantime, the Circular's requirements apply to them and their awards.
     
  3. Executive Order 12549 provided that agencies, including those which have not yet codified the common rule, are covered by OMB's governmentwide guidelines which are identical to the common rule (see OMB's memorandum to the agencies at 60 FR 33036 and OMB's notice at 53 FR 34474). For additional information about implementation of the Drug-Free Workplace Act, see OMB's notices at 54 FR 4946 and 55 FR 21679.
     
  4. The law only required major agencies, as identified by OMB, to codify the common rule; all other agencies are covered by OMB's governmentwide guidance (54 FR 52305 (28 pages, 1,673 kb)) which is identical to the common rule (also see OMB's clarification notices at 55 FR 24540 (3 pages, 337 kb) and 57 FR 1772 (2 pages, 260 kb)). Because of a new law on lobbying, OMB issued amendments to its governmentwide guidance, effective 1/1/96 (61 FR 1412 (2 pages, 34 kb)).
