This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
The Department of Commerce will submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of information under the emergency provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35).
Agency: Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA).
Title: Minority Business Center Program: Communication and Outreach.

Number of Respondents: 775 (25 interviews and 750 on-line surveys).
Average Hours per Response: Interview, 45 minutes; on-line survey, 15 minutes.

Needs and Uses: This emergency review request will give authorization to MBDA to conduct two surveys (telephone interviews and on-line) of its clients, stakeholders, and the public to ascertain their views, perceptions, and opinions of MBDA's logo, programs, and collateral materials. The collected information will be used to revise/update its collateral materials, outreach strategies and program services in a manner that effectively matches the interests and needs of its core constituency and outreach strategies.
On April 1, 2011, MBDA will announce the recipients of its most recent grant competition. The recipients of the MBDA grant will operate a minority business center and will provide direct service to minority business owners.
