SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is correcting a proposed rule that appeared in the Federal Register on September 10, 2014 (79 FR 53646). The document proposed to modify the size standards for a number of industries that are not part of North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Sector 31-33 (Manufacturing), Sector 42 (Wholesale Trade), or Sector 44-45 (Retail Trade). The document included a proposal to eliminate the Offshore Marine Air Transportation Services “exception” under NAICS 481211 and 481212 and the Offshore Marine Services “exception” under NAICS Subsector 483 and their $30.5 million receipts based size standard. The proposed changes included removing Footnote 15 and Footnote 18 from the table of size standards. However, where the supplementary information of the proposed rule refers to the Offshore Marine “exception” under NAICS 481211 and 481212, and under NAICS Subsector 483, it incorrectly states that $28 million is the current size standard. In addition, where the supplementary information of the proposed rule refers to the Information Technology Value Added Reseller (ITVAR) “exception” under NAICS 541519, it incorrectly states that the $25.5 million is the current size standard. SBA had increased all monetary based size standards for inflation, including these, effective July 14, 2014 (79 FR 33647). Because of the increase for inflation, the correct size standard in the supplementary information to the September 10, 2014 proposed rule that read $28 million referenced above should have read $30.5 million. Similarly, because of the increase for inflation, the correct size standard in the discussion of eliminating Footnote 18 and the ITVAR “exception” in the supplementary information to the September 10, 2014 proposed rule that read $25.5 million should have read $27.5 million. This action corrects the above stated size standards for these “exceptions.”
