OMB has reminded federal agencies about requirements related to personnel and other management matters in the recently enacted budget measure for the remainder of the current fiscal year, saying they “must have the necessary policies and procedures in place to comply with and enforce these requirements.”

A memo to agency general counsels points to what are called the “government-wide general provisions” in the section of that measure related to general government spending. Those provisions annually are part of an individual appropriations bill also covering financial regulatory agencies but the most recent budget measure, like many in recent years, wrapped that together with others into one, which became Public Law 117-103.

Those provisions include continuing a ban on conducting “Circular A-76” studies that can lead to contracting out of federal jobs; restrictions on training that is not directly career related; requirements for reporting on spending on conferences that exceeds certain thresholds; prohibitions on providing unions with employee names and home addresses without the employee’s consent; and more.

The memo, which contains a link to the full list, is at https://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/legislative/letters.
