In accordance with 41 U.S.C 2313, the CDC is required to audit the non-public segment of the OMB-designated integrity and performance system, which can be accessed through SAM (currently the Federal Performance and Integrity Information System (IASA) before receiving a federal premium under which federal actions are expected to exceed the simplified acquisition threshold of 41 U.S. C 134, while performance at least – the information contained in the system must justify, for a previous recipient of federal bonuses, a satisfactory registration of the implementation of programs or activities under federal grants, cooperation contracts or public procurement; Integrity and business ethics. CDC may award a federal supplement to a beneficiary who does not fully meet these standards if it is determined that the information is not relevant to the current federal arbitration price or if there are specific conditions that could adequately mitigate the effects of the non-federal enterprise risk within the meaning of 45 CFR 75.207. All information systems, electronic or paper, containing federal data must be protected from unauthorized access. The same applies to information on NIOSH grants and contracts. Congress and the OMB have passed laws, directives and guidelines governing the creation and implementation of federal information security practices, specifically related to grants and contracts. The current regulations comply with the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), 44 U.S.C 3541 and beyond.
FISMA`s applicability to the NIOSH receiver only applies if the recipient collects, stores, processes, transfers or uses information on behalf of HHS or one of its component organizations. In all other cases, FISMA does not apply to grant recipients, including cooperation agreements.
