Supplemental Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the 
Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency for the District of 
Columbia

AGENCY: Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency for the District 
of Columbia.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency for the 
District of Columbia (CSOSA or Agency), with the concurrence of the 
Office of Government Ethics (OGE), is adopting as final, without 
change, the interim CSOSA rule that supplements the executive-branch-
wide Standards of Ethical Conduct (Standards) issued by OGE, and 
requires employees of CSOSA and employees of the District of Columbia 
Pretrial Services Agency (PSA), an independent entity within CSOSA, to 
obtain approval before engaging in outside employment.

DATES: This final rule is effective June 21, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Theresa A. Rowell, Assistant General 
Counsel, Office of General Counsel, telephone: (202) 220-5364; e-mail: 
[email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: CSOSA published, with OGE concurrence, an 
interim rule in 76 FR 22293, on April 21, 2011, requiring employees of 
CSOSA and PSA to obtain prior written approval before engaging in 
outside employment. No comments were received. CSOSA has determined, 
with OGE concurrence, to adopt the interim rule as final without any 
change. The interim rule being adopted as final provides that employees 
of CSOSA and PSA must obtain prior written approval before engaging in 
outside employment. The rule defines outside employment and sets out 
the procedure for seeking approval.
    For a detailed section analysis of this final rule, see the 
preamble of the interim rule as published in 76 FR 22293.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    CSOSA, in accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 
605(b)), has reviewed this rule and by approving it certifies that this 
rule will not have a significant economic impact upon a substantial 
number of small entities. This rule pertains to agency management, and 
its economic impact is limited to the agency's appropriated funds.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. chapter 35, does not apply 
because this rulemaking does not contain information collection 
requirements subject to the approval of the Office of Management and 
Budget.

Congressional Review Act

    CSOSA has determined that this rule is not a rule as defined in 5 
U.S.C. 804, and thus, does not require review by Congress.
