The interim rule was developed by Rural Development's Delivery Enhancement Task Force (DET), which was established in 2006 to simplify the delivery of Rural Development guaranteed loan programs while reducing administrative and operational costs. The rule is expected to enable Rural Development to administer and deliver the existing programs more efficiently through a unified regulatory platform. The rule can be reviewed at​fr/​index.html or page 76697 of the December 17, 2008 edition of the Federal Register.
