SUBJECT

:

General Provisions under DOL Appropriations Laws for Fiscal Year/Program Year 1996, 1995 and 1994

 

  1. Purpose. To transmit copies of relevant excerpts from the subject appropriation law documents and to provide notice and guidance on their applicability.

  2. Reference. Public Laws 104-134 (FY/PY 96), 103-333 (FY/PY 95), 103-112 (FY/PY 94) and TEGLs 12-94 dated May 31, 1995, 12-94 Change 1 dated August 20, 1996, and 7-95 dated July 31, 1996.

  3. Background. Federal appropriations laws governing the use of specific fiscal year appropriations for a Federal government agency have, from time to time, imposed additional requirements on an agency's internal and external (e.g., grants/contracts) use of funds. Previously, ETA issued TEGLs (referenced above) to inform and provide guidance on specific Fiscal/Program Year 1995 and 1996 appropriation law provisions which the Congress authorized for the JTPA Title II and III programs.

    In other instances, Congress has mandated some specific requirements that cut across Federal Departments, agencies and programs. Accordingly, ETA has taken action, in many instances, to incorporate some of these appropriation law "General Provisions" into grant or contract agreements. Regardless of whether an agency takes such action on these broadbased provisions, they are applicable where appropriate. In an effort to keep grantees apprised of current appropriation laws which impact a grantee's program operations, ETA is issuing this and subsequent other issuances as needed. This TEGL will focus only on the General Provisions sections of the referenced appropriation laws for FY/PY 1994, 1995 and 1996.

  4. Applicability of General Provisions in Subject Laws. 

  5. Action. State JTPA and Wagner-Peyser grantees should review the attached excerpts and take necessary action to ensure compliance with the applicable provisions contained in the subject appropriation laws. This includes the distribution of this information to other affected entities.

  6. Inquiries and Comments. Please direct your inquiries to the appropriate Regional Office. RO staff will be responsible for obtaining needed assistance or responses on all inquiries.
