The Grant Accountability and Transparency Act (GATA), 30 ILCS 708/1 et seq., is landmark legislation that hopes to increase accountability and transparency in the use of grant funds in Illinois while reducing the administrative burden on both State agencies and grantees through adoption of the federal grant guidance and regulations codified at 2 CFR Part 200 (Uniform Requirements). Pursuant to the Act, the Grant Accountability and Transparency Unit (GATU) has been established in the Governor’s Office of Management and Budget. GATU is charged with implementation of the Act in coordination with State grant-making agencies and grantees. This session will focus on the grantee reporting requirements of GATA, presented by representatives of GATU.
