Office of Governmentwide Policy, GSA.
The General Services Administration (GSA) is transferring coverage on real property policies to the Federal Management Regulation (FMR). A final rule published in the Federal Register at 66 FR 5358 (January 18, 2001) moved many of the real property policies to the FMR. An amendment to those regulations appears elsewhere in today's Federal Register. This final rule completes the transfer by removing all FPMR coverage on real property policies and providing cross references to direct readers to the coverage in the FMR.

To promote efficient management of Government assets, which is the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act's original intent, GSA is improving its regulatory system by establishing the Federal Management Regulation (FMR) as the successor regulation to the Federal Property Management Regulations (FPMR). The FMR will contain a refined set of policies and regulatory requirements on managing property and administrative services. Non-regulatory guidance, procedures, information, and standards now in the FPMR is being removed from the regulation and will be available in separate documents, such as customer service guides, handbooks, brochures, Internet Web sites, and FMR bulletins.
B. Executive Order 12866
The General Services Administration (GSA) has determined that this final rule is not a significant regulatory action for the purposes of Executive Order 12866.
C. Regulatory Flexibility Act
This final rule is not required to be published in the Federal Register for comment. Therefore, the Regulatory Flexibility Act does not apply.
D. Paperwork Reduction Act
The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because this final rule does not impose reporting, recordkeeping or information collection requirements which require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget pursuant to 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.
E. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act
This final rule is also exempt from Congressional review prescribed under 5 U.S.C. 801 since it relates solely to agency management and personnel.Start List of Subjects
