Abstract

In 1969, OMB issued Circular A-95 to broaden the "confidential exchange" between applicants and federal agencies, to provide state and local clearinghouses an opportunity to review federal assistance applications. Because President Reagan recently signed Executive Order 12372 revoking A-95 and making states responsible for procedures governing regional coordination of federal programs, this is a useful time to analyze and evaluate the A-95 experience. Any review process somehow must solve the three critical, overlapping problems which plagued A-95 from the outset: unpredictable and insufficient funding, vague review criteria, and poor federal compliance. This article focuses on federal noncompliance: the extent of agency violations, structural and political reasons for noncompliance, and the success of efforts to modify and improve the system. The study draws on a 1981 survey of Region V areawide clearinghouses and the author's experience as a 1980-1981 NASPAA Faculty Fellow with the Chicago Federal Regional Council.
