This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Indian Health Service, HHS.

On June 24, 1996, The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Department of the Interior (DOI) issued joint regulations authorized by section 107 of the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act (ISDA), Public Law 93-638, as amended, 25 U.S.C. 450k. These joint regulations, published in the Federal Register on June 24, 1996, and codified at 25 CFR part 900, replaced Department regulations codified at 42 CFR part 36, subpart I, “Contracts under the ISDA”; 48 CFR section 352.280-4, “Contracts awarded under the ISDA”; 48 CFR section 352.380-4, “Contracts awarded under the ISDA”; and 48 CFR subpart 380.4, “Contracts awarded under the ISDA”; because they are no longer necessary for the Administration of the IHS Program.
Section 107(b) of the ISDA provides in pertinent part that “the secretary is authorized to repeal any regulation inconsistent with the provisions of this act.” The HHS has proposed at 64 FR 1344 to revise 48 CFR, Chapter 3, to streamline and simplify its acquisition regulations (HHSRA) in accordance with the directions of the National Performance Review. In so doing, the sections of 48 CFR liminated by the joint rule (25 CFR part 900) issued by the HHS and the DOI would be removed. Therefore, the IHS proposed at 65 FR 4797 the elimination of only Subpart I of 42 CFR part 36. No comments were received in response to the proposed rule. The proposed rule is converted to a final rule without change.Start Printed Page 58919
