This final rule will allow holding agencies to move property to sale if they have not received notification of allocation by day 6 after the surplus release date.


Effective Date: December 26, 2002.

A. Executive Order 12866

GSA has determined that this final rule is not a significant rule for the purposes of Executive Order 12866 of September 30, 1993.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

A Regulatory Flexibility Analysis is not required under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., because there is no requirement that this final rule be published in the Federal Register for notice and comment.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the changes to the FMR do not impose information collection requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.

D. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act

This final rule is exempt from Congressional review prescribed under 5 U.S.C. 801 since it relates solely to agency management and personnel.
