SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

USAID is correcting errors in the final rule entitled “Leave and Holidays for U.S. Personal Services Contractors, including Family and Medical Leave,” under AIDAR 48 CFR chapter 7, appendix D, which was published in the Federal Register on October 16, 2020 (85 FR 65734). This document corrects the following typographical errors in AIDAR appendix D. In section 12 clause 5, the title is revised to remove italics, and the last sentence of paragraph (a)(3) is revised because the final rule mistakenly included the word “either” twice, making the application of the sub-paragraphs (i) and (ii) illogical and impossible to apply. This document corrects the construction of this sentence in paragraph (a)(3) to ensure only one of the two sub-paragraphs (i) or (ii) may apply, and by using the matching terminology for “exceptional circumstances” that appears earlier in the paragraph. In the titles for clauses 6, “Differential and Allowances,” and 16, “Termination”, the effective dates missing from the final rule are inserted for each clause. Lastly, the final rule mistakenly included an instruction to add a parenthetical authority citation at the end, unnecessarily creating a double citation. This document instead revises Start Printed Page 494the one authority citation that already exists. This document does not make any substantive changes to the final rule.
