2.2 Acceptance of Award and Award Conditions
Special conditions are terms and conditions that are included with the award. Special conditions may include additional requirements covering areas such as programmatic and financial reporting, prohibited uses of Federal funds, consultant rates, changes in key personnel, and proper disposition of program income.
Some special conditions may be based on the program or the nature of the award itself. Regardless of the program office or the award, there are several mandatory special conditions that will be included on any DOJ award. A list of all the mandatory special conditions for each DOJ grant-making component is available at the following links:

- The COPS Office - standard award conditions are available in the Program Grant Owner’s Manual on the COPS website.
Financial Management Tip
Failure to comply with special conditions may result in withholding of funds, suspension, or termination, as appropriate.
