SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The final rule that is the subject of this correction amends the regulations that governed the Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) Program published on May 24, 2004 (69 FR 29411). This document corrects the numbering of a section of the final regulation. Confusion was caused by another amendment to the relevant section by a final rule amending certain definitions and making procedural and technical amendments to several SBA programs published on May 21, 2004 (69 FR 29192). The rule revised is § 121.1001(b)(7-8). Who may initiate a size protest or request a formal size determination?
