3.6 Costs Requiring Prior Approval

Responsibility for Prior Approval

For discretionary awards, the awarding agency reviews all costs identified as requiring prior approval when the recipient is the direct beneficiary of the goods or services to be purchased or supplied.

For block/formula awards, the State reviews all costs identified in this section for subrecipients where the State is the recipient of the award, but not the program-implementing agency.
