The procedures and requirements for State and local governments and nonprofit entities are set forth in OMB Circular No. A-133.
These requirements pertain to awards made within the respective State's fiscal year - not the Federal fiscal year,
as some State and local governments may use the calendar year or other variation of time span designated as the fiscal year period,
rather than that commonly known as the Federal fiscal year (from October 1st through September 30th).
Financial records must be maintained until 3 years after the completion of the grant project or submission of the final financial report, whichever is later, and be readily available for inspection and audit.

This section indicates the record retention requirements and the type of records the Federal agency may require.
