The Office of Federal Financial Management (OFFM) is amending four areas of the interim final guidance at 2 CFR part 176 that deal with international agreements. First, it makes a technical correction to section 176.90(a). Second, it changes the threshold that applies to international agreements from $7,430,000 to 7,804,000, based on a determination made by the United States Trade Representative (74 FR 68907, Dec. 29, 2009). Third, it adds Chinese Taipei (Taiwan) as a Party to the WTO Government Procurement Agreement. Fourth, it adds the Agreement between Canada and the United States of America on Government Procurement, which was signed on February 12, 2010 and enters into force on February 16, 2010, to the list of international agreements in section 176.90(b). Consequential amendments are also made to the Appendix to Subpart B of Part 176—U.S. States, Other Sub-Federal Entities, and Other Entities Subject to U.S. Obligations under International Agreements.
