Any flexibility in inspection requirements incorporated into grant work plans and/or grant terms and conditions depends on applicable statutes and regulations. Recipients should direct requests for direction regarding inspection requirements contained in grants to their Grant Specialist and Project Officer as indicated in the answer to the FQ “How should EPA grant recipients request that EPA provide them relief from a requirement due to COVID-19?”. EPA will consider modifying work plans, adjusting budgets, and/or extending project periods if consistent with applicable laws and regulations. On July 22, 2020, Susan Bodine, the Assistant Administrator for the EPA’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA) sent a COVID-19 letter to states, tribes, territories, and local agencies (partner agencies) recognizing the challenges they may face in meeting inspection commitments during the COVID-19 public health emergency and identifying flexibilities. Please see the Inspection Expectations for EPA Partner Agencies During COVID-19 Public Health Emergency Letter.
