AGENCY: Office of Governmentwide Policy, General Services 
Administration (GSA).

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

SUMMARY: The General Services Administration is amending the Federal 
Management Regulation (FMR) by correcting references to outdated or 
superceded provisions of law or regulation; correcting text to be in 
conformance with revised laws, regulation, or Federal agency 
responsibilities; and clarifying text where the intended meaning could 
be updated or made clearer.

DATES: Effective Date: October 12, 2006.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The Regulatory Secretariat, Room 4035, 
GS Building, Washington, DC 20405, (202) 501-4755, for information 
pertaining to status or publication schedules. For clarification of 
content, contact Mr. Robert Holcombe, Office of Governmentwide Policy, 
Office of Travel, Transportation, and Asset Management (MT), at (202)

2006-06, FMR case 2006-102-4.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    GSA is in the process of revising the Federal Property Management 
Regulations (FPMR) and transferring most of the content into a new, 
streamlined Federal Management Regulation (FMR). Consequently, FMR part 
102-36 (41 CFR part 102-36) contains references to FPMR sections that 
no longer exist. Also, Public Law 107-217 revised and restated certain 
provisions of the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 
1949 (Property Act). For example, the Property Act provisions found at 
40 U.S.C. 471-514 will now generally be found at 40 U.S.C. 101-705. 
This final rule updates the title 40 U.S.C. citations to reflect the 
changes made by Public Law 107-217. Finally, updating or clarifying 
revisions were made where the revisions are seen as administrative or 
clerical in nature. This includes a revised definition of ``Foreign 
excess personal property.''

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.
