This action has been reviewed and determined not to be a rule or regulation as defined in Executive Order 12866 and Departmental Regulation 1512-1; therefore, the Executive Order and Departmental Regulation do not apply to this action.
In the December 1, 1999, Federal Register (64 FR 67246), GIPSA asked persons interested in providing official services in the geographic area assigned to East Indiana to submit an application for designation. Applications were due by December 30, 1999. Since East Indiana was the sole applicant for designation to provide official services in the entire area currently assigned to them, GIPSA did not ask for comments on the applicant.
GIPSA evaluated all available information regarding the designation criteria in section 7(f)(l)(A) of the Act and, according to section 7(f)(l)(B), determined that East Indiana is able to provide official services in the geographic area, specified in the December 1, 1999, Federal Register, for which they applied. We are granting the 1-year designation to allow East Indiana time to complete the requirements for compliance with the national quality database. Interested persons may obtain official services by calling East Indiana at 765-289-1206.Start Signature
