SUMMARY: On June 10, 1998 (63 FR 31814), the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued a notice of availability of the 1998 Circular A-133 Compliance Supplement. The notice also offered interested parties an opportunity to comment on the 1998 Circular A-133 Compliance Supplement. OMB received comments from 10 different respondents. These comments were very technical in nature and did not result in any substantive changes to the Supplement. The 1999 Supplement has been updated to add 35 additional programs, updated for program changes, makes technical corrections, and makes changes reflected in the public comment letters. A list of changes to the 1999 Supplement can be found at Appendix 5 of the supplement. Due to its length, the 1999 Supplement is not included in this Notice. See Addresses for information about how to obtain a copy. OMB intends to annually review, revise and/or update this supplement.
