Allowability of Contract Expenditures

HHS awarded Establishment Grants to certain States to assist the States in setting up State-based marketplaces. HHS award recipients often contract with organizations to provide services necessary to meet the performance requirements of the grant. Contractors that provide services specified in the grant award to beneficiaries are subject to the same requirements and cost principles as the grantee. We will review the allowability of expenditures for contractor services claimed for Federal reimbursement by a State grantee funded under the Establishment Grants.
