SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

SBA is amending its regulations to reflect the new titles of certain SBA officials. The new titles conform SBA's management titles with those commonly used across the Federal Government. No changes are made to the responsibilities, reporting relationship, or other regulatory duties of the SBA officials whose titles are changed.

Basically, the title “Associate Deputy Administrator” is retired and replaced with the title “Associate Administrator.” All current Associate Administrators will also receive new titles. Heads of program offices that report directly to the Office of the Administrator will receive the title “Assistant Administrator.” Heads of program offices that do not report directly to the Office of the Administrator, and report through a new Associate Administrator, will receive the title of “Director” of their respective offices.

The nomenclature changes will help clarify and add transparency to a management structure that has become unwieldy and opaque to our customers, partners, and the public. Almost all of these changes can be made administratively.

SBA has asked for Congressional assistance with changing the few statutory titles that would require legislation to conform to SBA's new title procedures. The statutory titles for SBA officials are: (1) Associate Administrator for Investment; (2) Associate Administrator for Minority Small Business (MSB) and Capital Ownership Development (COD); (3) Associate Administrator for Veterans Business Development (VBD); (4) Associate Administrator for Small Business Development Centers (SBDC); (5) Assistant Administrator for Women's Business Ownership (WBO); (6) Director of the Division of Program Certification and Eligibility; (7) Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory Enforcement Ombudsman; (8) Director of Office of Rural Affairs (ORA); and (9) Chief Counsel for Advocacy.

Savings Provision

This rule shall constitute notice that all references to the old titles cited in SBA rules affected by this Final Rule in any documents, statements, or other communications, in any form or media, and whether made before, on, or after the effective date of this rule, shall be deemed to be references to the new titles. Any actions undertaken in the name of or on behalf of these SBA officials under the old title, whether taken before, on, or after the effective date of this rule, shall be deemed to have been taken in the name of the SBA official under the new title.

Compliance With Executive Orders 13132, 12988 and 12866, the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), and the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Ch. 35)

The final rule will not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. Therefore, for the purposes of Executive Order 13132, SBA determines that this final rule has no federalism implications warranting preparation of a federalism assessment.

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has determined that this rule does not constitute a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866.

This action meets applicable standards set forth in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. The action does not have retroactive or preemptive effect.

SBA has determined that this final rule does not impose additional reporting or recordkeeping requirements under the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C., Chapter 35.

The provisions of the Administrative Procedures Act (5 U.S.C. 553), requiring notice of proposed rulemaking, the opportunity for public participation, and a delay in effective date, are inapplicable because this rule involves a rule of agency organization, procedure, or practice. 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B). Further, no other law requires that a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment be given for this final rule.

Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and opportunity for public comment are not required to be given for this rule under 5 U.S.C. or any other law, the analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601, et seq.) are not applicable. Accordingly, this rule is issued in final form.

Although there is no formal comment period, public comments on this rule are welcome on a continuing basis. Comments should be submitted to Richard L. Brechbiel, Chief Human Capital Officer, Office of Human Capital Management, Office of Management and Administration, Small Business Administration, 409 3rd Street, SW., Start Printed Page 50038Washington, DC 20416.
