SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

In the years since 41 CFR part 102-37 was published as a final rule, the references to other regulations which migrated from the Federal Property Management Regulations (FPMR) (41 CFR chapter 101) to the Federal Management Regulation (FMR) (41 CFR chapter 102) became outdated. Also, Public Law 107-217 revised and recodified certain provisions of the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 (Property Act). For example, the Property Act provisions and topics previously found at 40 U.S.C. 471-514 will now generally be found at 40 U.S.C. 101-705. This revised regulation updates the title 40 U.S.C. citations to reflect the changes made by Public Law 107-217. Additionally, in the intervening years since these three regulations were published, several agencies have moved or changed names. Finally, updating or clarifying revisions were made where the revisions are seen as administrative or clerical in nature. This includes—

1. Elimination of the requirement for a biennial report to Congress on the donation of Federal surplus personal property (obsolete because of section 3003 of the Federal Reports Elimination and Sunset Act of 1995 (31 U.S.C. 1113 note)); and

2. A revised threshold for audits made under OMB Circular A-133.

B. Executive Order 12866

The General Services Administration (GSA) has determined that this final rule is not a significant regulatory action for the purposes of Executive Order 12866.

C. Regulatory Flexibility Act

This final rule is not required to be published in the Federal Register for comment. Therefore, the Regulatory Flexibility Act does not apply.

D. Paperwork Reduction Act

The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the changes to the FMR do not impose information Start Printed Page 23868collection requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.

E. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act

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