A. Background

    In the years since 41 CFR part 102-39 was published as a final 
rule, the references to other regulations which migrated from the 
Federal Property Management Regulations (FPMR) (41 CFR chapter 101) to 
the Federal Management Regulation (FMR) (41 CFR chapter 102) became 
outdated. Also, Public Law 107-217 revised and recodified certain 
provisions of the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 
1949 (Property Act). For example, the Property Act provisions and 
topics previously found at 40 U.S.C. 471-514 will now generally be 
found at 40 U.S.C. 101-705. This revised regulation updates the title 
40 U.S.C. citations to reflect the changes made by Public Law 107-217. 
Additionally, in the intervening years since these three regulations 
were published, several agencies have moved or changed names. Finally, 
updating or clarifying revisions were made where the revisions are seen 
as administrative or clerical in nature.

B. Executive Order 12866

    The General Services Administration (GSA) has determined that this 
final rule is not a significant regulatory action for the purposes of 
Executive Order 12866.

C. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    This final rule is not required to be published in the Federal 
Register for comment. Therefore, the Regulatory Flexibility Act does 
not apply.

D. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the changes to 
the FMR do not impose information collection requirements that require 
the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 
3501, et seq.

E. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act

    This final rule is exempt from Congressional review under 5 U.S.C. 
801 since it relates solely to agency management and personnel.
