Office of Personnel Management.
The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is issuing final regulations to remove its regulation concerning the submission of claims by preference eligibles to OPM and the recognition of representatives by OPM. The purpose of this revision to part 990 is to eliminate the part because it is obsolete. OPM no longer adjudicates claims or appeals under sections 3502, 3503, or 7701 of title 5, United States Code. That appellate function was vested in the Merit Systems Protection Board, created by the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978. Accordingly, there is no basis to retain the provisions of part 990 in the Code of Federal Regulations.
Effective Date: August 13, 2007.Start Further Info

On May 27, 2003, OPM issued proposed regulations at Federal Register 68 FR 28806 to remove and reserve part 990 from the Code of Federal Regulations. No comments were received and the proposed rule is adopted as a final rule without change.
Regulatory Flexibility Act
I certify that this regulation will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because it affects only certain Federal employees.
