AGENCY:

Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Department of Labor.

ACTION:

Notice.

SUMMARY:

Pursuant to the provisions of the Federal Activities Inventory Reform Act of 1998 (FAIR Act), and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-76, the Department of Labor must notify the public when it either concurs or disagrees with a challenge from directly affected employees. In this case, the challenge concerns the reclassification of a number of full time equivalent (FTE) Whistleblower Investigators, Supervisory Investigators, Program Managers, and Team Leaders in OSHA's National Office and field locations, to “inherently governmental” status from their prior classification as commercial in nature in the Department of Labor's FY 2005 FAIR Act Inventory for OSHA.
