Stevens Amendment

 

Stevens Amendment 

The Stevens Amendment is part of public law and is intended to give the federal government public credit for federally funded programs and projects.  Federal grant recipients are required to disclose funding information on all press releases, statements, requests for proposals, bid solicitations and other documents that describe projects or programs funded in whole or in part with federal money. The total cost of the project or program and the dollar amount (and percentage of total costs) of federal funds used must be disclosed*. Failure to comply with the stipulations of the Stevens Amendment could be considered a breach of responsibilities. 

*Note: Academic publications (peer-reviewed journals, presentations to professional groups) resulting from the project research are not required to include this information.
