In the December 28, 2012 Federal Register Notice (77 FR 76452), GIPSA requested applications for designation to provide official services in the geographic areas presently serviced by Champaign. Applications were due by January 28, 2013.
Champaign was the sole applicant for designation to provide official services in the area. As a result, GIPSA did not ask for additional comments.
GIPSA evaluated all available information regarding the designation criteria in section 79(f) of the USGSA (7 U.S.C. 79(f)) and determined that Champaign is qualified to provide official services in the geographic area specified in the Federal Register Notice published on December 28, 2012 and as corrected herein. This designation action to provide official services in these specified areas is effective as of April 1, 2013 and terminates on March 31, 2016.

Section 79(f) of the USGSA authorizes the Secretary to designate a qualified applicant to provide official services in a specified area after determining that the applicant is better able than any other applicant to provide such official services (7 U.S.C. 79 (f)).
Under section 79(g) of the USGSA, designations of official agencies are effective for no longer than three years unless terminated by the Secretary; however, designations may be renewed according to the criteria and procedures prescribed in section 79(f) of the USGSA.
