This notice provides a copy of the 2004 List of Designated Federal Entities and Federal Entities which, under the IG Act, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is required to publish annually. This list is also posted on the OMB Web site at http//www.whitehouse.gov/omb.html.
The list is divided into two groups: Designated Federal Entities and Federal Entities. Designated Federal Entities are listed in the IG Act, except for those agencies that have ceased to exist or that have been deleted from the list. The Designated Federal Entities are required to establish and maintain Offices of Inspector General to: (1) Conduct and supervise audits and investigations relating to programs and operations; (2) promote economy, efficiency, and effectiveness of, and to prevent and detect fraud and abuse in such programs and operations; and (3) provide a means of keeping the entity head and the Congress fully and currently informed about problems and deficiencies relating to the administration of such programs and operations and the necessity for, and progress of, corrective actions.
Federal Entities are defined, in section 8G(a)(1) of the Inspector General Act, as any Government corporation (within the meaning of section 103(1) of title 5, United States Code), any Government controlled corporation (within the meaning of section 103(2) of such title), or any other entity in the Executive Branch of the government, or any independent regulatory agency, but does not include:
(1) An establishment (as defined in section 11(2) of the Inspector General Act) or part of an establishment;
(2) A designated Federal entity (as defined in section 8G(a)(2) of the Inspector General Act) or part of a designated Federal entity;
(3) The Executive Office of the President;
(4) The Central Intelligence Agency;
(5) The Government Accountability Office; or
(6) Any entity in the judicial or legislative branches of the Government, including the Administrative Office of the United States Courts and the Architect of the Capitol and any activities under the direction of the Architect of the Capitol.
Federal Entities are required to report annually to each House of the Congress and OMB on audit and investigative activities in their organizations.
For the Designated Federal Entities list for 2004, there is one addition (the Broadcasting Board of Governors succeeded the Board for International Broadcasting) and one amendment (the designated entity head of Amtrak was changed to the Chairperson who is the chief policymaking officer), for a total of two changes to the 2003 list. For the Federal Entities list for 2004, there are four additions (the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency for the District of Columbia, the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness, and the White House Commission on the National Moment of Remembrance) and three deletions (the Commission on Start Printed Page 4158Ocean Policy, the Office of Independent Counsels, and the Pacific Charter Commission), for a total of seven changes to the 2003 list.
The 2004 List of Designated Federal Entities and Federal Entities was prepared in consultation with the U.S. Government Accountability Office.Start Signature
