SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recently published notices in the Federal Register announcing the availability of funds for Small Grants Programs (January 5, 2005), the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURF) Programs (December 27, 2004), and for the Precision Measurement Grants Program (December 27, 2004). This document amends each of these announcements by updating the citation to the Department of Commerce Pre-Award Notification Requirements for Grants and Cooperative Agreements printed in the Supplementary Information section of each notice. The Department of Commerce Pre-Award Notification Requirements for Grants and Cooperative Agreements contained in the Federal Register notice of December 30, 2004 (69 FR 78389) is applicable to the three notices mentioned above. On the form SF-424, the applicant's 9-digit Dun and Bradstreet Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number must be entered in the Applicant Identifier block.

Classification

It has been determined that this rule is not significant for purposes of E.O. 12866.

Prior notice and an opportunity for public comment are not required by the Administrative Procedure Act for rules concerning public property, loans, grants, benefits, and contracts (5 U.S.C. 553(a)(2)). Because notice and opportunity for comment are not required pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553 or any other law, the analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) are inapplicable. Therefore, a regulatory flexibility analysis is not required and has not been prepared.
