SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

The NASA Grant Handbook at § 1274.904 identifies how NASA and a Cooperative Agreement recipient will share in providing the resources necessary to perform a cooperative agreement. Currently, the provision contains two blanks that do not identify the unit of measure associated with the blanks and does not provide a space for the associated dollar amounts. This final rule makes the corrective editorial changes.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

NASA certifies that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq., because the changes merely make editorial corrections to existing coverage in the Grant Handbook.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because this rule does not impose any new recordkeeping or information collection requirements, or collection of information from offerors, contractors, or members of the public that require the approval of the Office of Start Printed Page 51714Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.
