SMALL BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

13 CFR Parts 101, 105, 115, 117, 120, 121, 124, 125, 126, 134, 136,

Agency Titling Procedure Revision; Nomenclature Changes

AGENCY: U.S. Small Business Administration.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA or Agency) is 
amending its regulations to change the titles of certain SBA officials 
mentioned in the regulations. These nomenclature changes within SBA's 
management will conform SBA's management titles to those commonly used 
across the Federal Government. No changes will be made to the 
responsibilities, reporting relationship, or other regulatory duties of 
the SBA officials whose titles are changed.

DATES: This final rule is effective August 30, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Richard L. Brechbiel, Chief Human 
Capital Officer, Office of Human Capital Management, Office of 
Management and Administration, Small Business Administration, 409 3rd 
Street, SW., Washington, DC 20416. Tel: (202) 205-6780.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SBA is amending its regulations to reflect 
the new titles of certain SBA officials. The new titles conform SBA's 
management titles with those commonly used across the Federal 
Government. No changes are made to the responsibilities, reporting 
relationship, or other regulatory duties of the SBA officials whose 
titles are changed.
    Basically, the title ``Associate Deputy Administrator'' is retired 
and replaced with the title ``Associate Administrator.'' All current 
Associate Administrators will also receive new titles. Heads of program 
offices that report directly to the Office of the Administrator will 
receive the title ``Assistant Administrator.'' Heads of program offices 
that do not report directly to the Office of the Administrator, and 
report through a new Associate Administrator, will receive the title of 
``Director'' of their respective offices.
    The nomenclature changes will help clarify and add transparency to 
a management structure that has become unwieldy and opaque to our 
customers, partners, and the public. Almost all of these changes can be 
made administratively.
    SBA has asked for Congressional assistance with changing the few 
statutory titles that would require legislation to conform to SBA's new 
title procedures. The statutory titles for SBA officials are: (1) 
Associate Administrator for Investment; (2) Associate Administrator for 
Minority Small Business (MSB) and Capital Ownership Development (COD); 
(3) Associate Administrator for Veterans Business Development (VBD); 
(4) Associate Administrator for Small Business Development Centers 
(SBDC); (5) Assistant Administrator for Women's Business Ownership 
(WBO); (6) Director of the Division of Program Certification and 
Eligibility; (7) Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory Enforcement 
Ombudsman; (8) Director of Office of Rural Affairs (ORA); and (9) Chief 
Counsel for Advocacy.

Savings Provision

    This rule shall constitute notice that all references to the old 
titles cited in SBA rules affected by this Final Rule in any documents, 
statements, or other communications, in any form or media, and whether 
made before, on, or after the effective date of this rule, shall be 
deemed to be references to the new titles. Any actions undertaken in 
the name of or on behalf of these SBA officials under the old title, 
whether taken before, on, or after the effective date of this rule, 
shall be deemed to have been taken in the name of the SBA official 
under the new title.

Compliance With Executive Orders 13132, 12988 and 12866, the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), and the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 
U.S.C. Ch. 35)

    The final rule will not have substantial direct effects on the 
States, on the relationship between the national government and the 
States, or the distribution of power and responsibilities among the 
various levels of government. Therefore, for the purposes of Executive 
Order 13132, SBA determines that this final rule has no federalism 
implications warranting preparation of a federalism assessment.
    The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has determined that this 
rule does not constitute a significant regulatory action under 
Executive Order 12866.
    This action meets applicable standards set forth in sections 3(a) 
and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize 
litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. The action does not 
have retroactive or preemptive effect.
    SBA has determined that this final rule does not impose additional 
reporting or recordkeeping requirements under the Paperwork Reduction 
Act, 44 U.S.C., Chapter 35.
    The provisions of the Administrative Procedures Act (5 U.S.C. 553), 
requiring notice of proposed rulemaking, the opportunity for public 
participation, and a delay in effective date, are inapplicable because 
this rule involves a rule of agency organization, procedure, or 
practice. 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B). Further, no other law requires that a 
notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment be 
given for this final rule.
    Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and opportunity for public 
comment are not required to be given for this rule under 5 U.S.C. or 
any other law, the analytical requirements of the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601, et seq.) are not applicable. 
Accordingly, this rule is issued in final form.
    Although there is no formal comment period, public comments on this 
rule are welcome on a continuing basis. Comments should be submitted to 
Richard L. Brechbiel, Chief Human Capital Officer, Office of Human 
Capital Management, Office of Management and Administration, Small 
Business Administration, 409 3rd Street, SW.,
