Charge of the Committee

The objectives of the Expanding the Expanded Authorities Task Force are:

  1. to expand the expanded authorities (EA's) to other award mechanisms
    (excluding construction grants and block grants);
  2. assure that EA's are consistently applied within research grants, and;
  3. explore the possibility of expanding the A-110 authorities to allow
    grantees additional administrative permissions for non-workscope related
    changes and activities.
