A. Background

    The purpose of the proposed rule is to update and clarify FMR 102-
36.135. The current language has caused confusion with our customers 
and resulted in unnecessarily prolonged removal periods. This revision 
makes it clear that the acquiring agency is responsible for scheduling 
and coordinating the property removal once the acquiring agency 
receives notification from GSA that they have been allocated the 

B. Executive Order 12866

    This proposed rule is excepted from the definition of 
``regulation'' or ``rule'' under Section 3(d)(3) of Executive Order 
12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993 and, 
therefore, was not subject to review under Section 6(b) of that 
Executive Order.

C. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    This proposed rule is not required to be published in the Federal 
Register for notice and comment as per the exemption specified in 5 
U.S.C. 553 (a)(2); therefore, the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 
601, et seq., does not apply.

D. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the proposed 
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 proposed rule is exempt from Congressional review under 5 
U.S.C. 801 since it relates solely to agency management and personnel.

List of Subjects in 41 CFR Part 102-36

    Government property, Property disposal.

    Dated: February 23, 2009.
Stan Kaczmarczyk,
Acting Associate Administrator, Office of Governmentwide Policy.
    For the reasons set forth in the preamble, GSA proposes to amend 41 
CFR part 102-36 as set forth below:


    1. The authority citation for 41 CFR part 102-36 continues to read 
as follows:

    Authority: 40 U.S.C. 121(c).

    2. Revise Sec.  102-36.135 to read as follows:

Sec.  102-36.135  How much time do we have to pick up excess personal 
property that has been approved for transfer?

    Normally, you have 15 calendar days from the date of GSA allocation 
to pick up the excess personal property for transfer and you are 
responsible for scheduling and coordinating the property removal with 
the holding agency. If additional removal time is required, you are 
responsible for requesting such additional removal time.
