This action was taken by order of the Managing Director on authority delegated by the Commission. The order (DA 03-445) was released on March 5, 2003, and the full text of the order is available for public inspection on-line at or in the Reference Center of the Federal Communications Commission, 445 12th Street, SW., Washington, D.C. 20554. To more accurately reflect the expanded emphasis by the Commission's Office of Plans and Policy on strategic planning, the Office's name has been changed to the Office of Strategic Planning and Policy Analysis. Since this name change pertains to agency organization, procedure, and practice, the notice and comment provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act contained in 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are not applicable.
