This online dialogue is made up of three campaigns. Each campaign is focused on different aspects of the Federal award process for which we welcome your insight, ideas, and feedback. Some areas may overlap and to help organize ideas, we have created "tags" you can use to capture the primary area of impact you are proposing. Tags are a way to identify your idea using key words that best describe the intent. Tags and associated conversations are displayed in the navigation area under "what we're discussing".

Ten tags are included in the drop down menu:

Reporting Burden Reporting Processes
Increases Costs Concerning Regulations or Guidelines
Administrative Burden Audit
Duplicate Reporting Non-standardized Processes
Frequency of Reporting Central Reporting Portal

 

Open Dialogue Tags and Definitions

  1. Reporting Burden – use this tag if your idea or comment relates to time spent on compiling and submitting report data, including how much time or money would be saved if these burdens were reduced.
  2. Increases Costs – use this tag if your idea or comment identifies regulations, guidelines, or processes contribute to unnecessary increases in cost because they are inefficient or overly burdensome.  
  3. Administrative Burden – use this tag if your idea or comment relates to time spent on activities that support and enable work associated with your Federal contract or grant, or subcontract or subaward, including how much time or money would be saved if these burdens were reduced.
  4. Duplicate Reporting – use this tag if your idea or comment identifies regulations, guidelines or processes that require the same or similar information be reported in multiple instances to multiple locations, including how much time or money would be saved if the duplicate reporting requirements were eliminated or streamlined.
  5. Frequency of Reporting – use this tag if your idea or comment identifies regulations, guidelines or processes that, in your opinion, require an inappropriate frequency of reporting, including how much time or money would be saved if the frequency of reporting was reduced or streamlined.
