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 4, 2001, Federal Register (66 FR 63015), GIPSA asked persons interested in providing official services in the geographic areas assigned to the official agencies named above to submit an application for designation. Applications were due by January 2, 2002.

Georgia, Mid-Iowa, Montana, Oregon, and Schneider were the sole applicants for designation to provide official services in the entire area currently assigned to them, so GIPSA did not ask for additional comments on them.

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 Georgia, Mid-Iowa, Montana, Oregon, and Schneider are able to provide official services in the geographic areas specified in the December 4, 2001, Federal Register, for which they applied.
