Grantee Contract Development Checklist

Obtaining a DUNS Number: EPA is now requiring the Nonpoint Source Program to report DUNS numbers for all grantees.  A DUNs is the Data Universal Numbering System's unique nine-digit number provided by Dun and Bradstreet.  This requirement applies to grantees that receive or earn as match $25,000 or more, and for each contractor that receives or earns as match $25,000 or more.  Contractors include for-profits, non-profits, state agencies, and federal agencies.  It does NOT apply to "sole proprietors", which are organizations who are not incorporated (for example, Sally's Graphic Design, a sole person working out of her home doing graphic design work).  Grantee DUNS numbers will be included in grant contracts.  Contractor DUNS are required on the Contractor's Qualification's Forms.
