Public Availability of Revised Fiscal Year 2006 Department of 
Labor Inventories Under the Federal Activities Inventory Reform Act

AGENCY: Department of Labor.

ACTION: Notice of revised public availability of Department of Labor 
inventory of activities that are not inherently governmental and of 
activities that are inherently governmental


SUMMARY: The Federal Activities Inventory Reform (FAIR) Act, Public Law 
105-270, requires agencies to develop inventories each year of 
activities performed by their employees that are not inherently 
governmental--i.e., inventories of commercial activities. The FAIR Act 
further requires the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to review 
the inventories in consultation with the agencies and publish a notice 
of public availability in the Federal Register after the consultation 
process is completed. Interested parties who disagree with an agency's 
initial judgment may challenge the inclusion or the omission of an 
activity on the list of activities within 30 working days and, if not 
satisfied with this review, may appeal to a higher level within the 
    A notice of the first release of the Department of Labor's (DOL's) 
FY 2006 inventories was published by the OMB in the Federal Register on 
May 2, 2007. See 72 FR 24340-24341. As indicated in OMB's May 2007 
notice, the FY 2006 inventory prepared by the DOL was released in 
connection with the first notice of public availability. However, 
following the initial release of its inventory, DOL made revisions to 
its inventory as a result of a challenge by the Nation Council of Field 
Labor Locals (NCFLL), available pursuant to this notice.
    The DOL Office of Competitive Sourcing has made available a summary 
of the revisions, as well as the complete original and revised FY 2006 
inventories, through its Internet site at http://www.dol.gov/oasam/programs/boc/comp-sourcing/index.htm. Additionally, the Office of 
Federal Procurement Policy within the OMB has made available a FAIR Act 
User's Guide through its Internet site: http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/procurement/fair-index.html. This User's Guide may help interested 
parties review DOL's FY 2006 inventories.
