ACTION:

Notice of correcting amendments.

SUMMARY:

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is amending its regulations to correct omissions and errors in its final rule titled Agency Titling Procedure Revision; Nomenclature Changes which appeared in the Federal Register on August 30, 2007. In the Agency Titling Procedure Revision rule SBA amended its regulations to change the titles of certain SBA officials to conform to titles that are commonly used across the Federal Government. However, several references to SBA titles were inadvertently excluded in the original rule and there were some name changes that were not properly made. This notice will correct the improperly made changes and include the omitted title changes.

Effective Dates: These corrections are effective on September 4, 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The SBA published a final rule in the Federal Register on August 30, 2007, (72 FR 50037), which amended 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 were made to the responsibilities, reporting relationship, or other regulatory duties of the SBA officials whose titles are changed.

However, several SBA titles were inadvertently left unchanged. In addition, several title changes were improperly made and need to be corrected. This Notice of Correction will incorporate these additional title changes and will correct the improperly made changes.

Savings Provision

This Notice of Correcting Amendment shall constitute notice that all references to the old titles cited in SBA rules affected by this Notice in any documents, statements, or other communications, in any form or media, and whether made before, on, or after the effective date of this Notice, 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 Notice, shall be deemed to have been taken in the name of the SBA official under the new title.
