The Journey to Statewide Grant Accountability in Illinois
What is GATA?
The Grant Accountability and Transparency Act (GATA), 30 ILCS 708/1 et seq., is landmark legislation that increases accountability and transparency in the use of grant funds and reduces the administrative burden on both State agencies and grantees through adoption of the federal grant guidance and regulations. Pursuant to this 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 nonprofit organizations in Illinois.
Where are we now?
The Governor’s Office of Management and Budget (GOMB) has drafted State rule recommendations based on the federal grant guidance and regulations in 2 CFR Part 200 (Uniform Requirements). Now, the GATU and the supporting workgroups are in the Implementation Phase, developing the frameworks required to implement GATA at all grant-making state agencies.
On January 1, 2016, GOMB released the 1st Grant Accountability and Transparency Act Annual Report. The report, available HERE, provides the historical context for the Act as well as updates on the planning process and next steps for implementation. A GATA Frequently Asked Questions document has been added to the Training Materials section. Additional resources will be add to this new section as they are made available.
