Treasury's OIG Updates FAQs for Coronavirus Relief Fund Reporting Requirements

On September 21, the Department of Treasury’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) updated their Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) FAQs on reporting requirements. The document swapped out guidance initially released on August 28, following complaints about the guidance by the OIG conflicting with guidance issued by the Treasury on August 10 regarding reporting payroll expenses for public health and public safety employees determined to have “substantially dedicated” their time in responding to the COVID-19 public health emergency. The updated FAQs provide more flexibility to CRF prime recipients by implementing “administrative accommodations made in accordance to Treasury’s FAQs."
