This technical amendment is effective on February 9, 2007.End Preamble Start Supplemental Information
In the final regulations issued on November 20, 2006, OPM erroneously removed regulatory text in 5 CFR 950.203(a)(1) that had required a charitable organization applying to participate in the CFC to provide, in addition to its certification, “documentation describing the health and human welfare benefits provided by the organization within the previous year.” Although OPM has changed the manner in which it collects this documentation (as of 2007, it is included on the “Statement of Services” Attachment A to the application whereas in previous years it was a separate attachment to the application), OPM did not intend to remove the regulatory provision. As stated in the Supplementary Information to both the Proposed Rule, 71 FR 37003 (June 29, 2006) and the Final Rule, “no changes were proposed to this standard and it remains the same as the existing regulation.” 71 FR 67276, 67277 (November 20, 2006). The denotation “(a) * * *” regarding regulatory changes under section 950.203 Public Accountability Standards, similarly indicates OPM's intention to retain the provision at 5 CFR 950.203(a)(1) as it had previously existed. OPM believes that this documentation is an important requirement to ensure that only organizations that are currently providing human health and welfare services are admitted to participate in the CFC. As such, OPM is re-inserting this provision into the regulations via this technical amendment.
Regulatory Flexibility Act
I certify that this regulation will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Charitable organizations applying to the CFC have an existing, independent obligation to comply with the eligibility and public accountability standards contained in current CFC regulations. This technical amendment will not cause significant additional burden.Start List of Subjects
