Statute, Rules and Grant Policies Guide
CURRENT RULEMAKING PROJECT
At its November 16, 2016, meeting, the Oversight Committee approved the release of proposed changes to existing agency rules.
CPRIT completed an extensive revision to its administrative rules earlier this year to align agency policies and practices with CPRIT’s administrative rules. CPRIT has identified some rule provisions that would benefit from additional clarity. The proposed amendments affect Texas Administrative Code Chapter 703. One proposed change replaces a reference to OMB Circular A-133 that has been superseded and the second change clarifies when grantee budget carry forward requests require CPRIT approval.
The proposed changes should be published in the December 23, 2016, edition of the Texas Register. Written comments may be submitted through January 23, 2017, to CPRIT’s General Counsel, Kristen Doyle, by fax (512/475-2563); by email (firstname.lastname@example.org); or by mail to the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas, P.O. Box 12097, ATTN: Rulemaking Project, Austin, Texas, 78711.
The Oversight Committee expects to consider final orders that reflect the comments received on the proposed rules and any recommended changes at their meeting on February 15, 2017.
