OMB is issuing the OMB Sequestration Update Report to the President and Congress for Fiscal Year 2016 to report on the status of the discretionary caps and on the compliance of pending discretionary appropriations legislation with those caps. For fiscal year 2015, the report finds enacted appropriations to be within the spending limits. For fiscal year 2016, the report finds that if the current limits remain unchanged, under OMB's estimates of actions to date by both the House of Representatives and Senate for the 12 annual appropriations bills would result in a sequestration of approximately $3 million and $1 million, respectively, in discretionary programs in the defense category. The report also finds that fiscal year 2016 actions by the House of Representatives for the non-defense category would result in a sequestration of nearly $1.8 billion while OMB's estimate of actions by the Senate for the non-defense category are in compliance with the current spending limit. Finally, the report also contains OMB's Preview Estimate of the Disaster Relief Funding Adjustment for FY 2016.
Under the authority of the Budget and Accounting Procedures Act of 1950 (31 U.S.C. 1104(d)) and the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3504(e)), the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) seeks public comment on the advisability of adopting the proposed North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) updates for 2017 recommended by its Economic Classification Policy Committee (ECPC), comprised of representatives of the Bureau of Economic Analysis, Bureau of Labor Statistics, and Census Bureau. The ECPC recommends an update of the industry classification system to clarify existing industry definitions and content, recognize new and emerging industries, and correct errors and omissions. This notice: (1) Summarizes the background for the proposed revisions to NAICS 2012 in Part I, (2) contains a summary of public comments in Part II, (3) includes a list of title changes for NAICS industries that clarify, but do not change, the existing content of the industries in Part III, and (4) provides a comprehensive listing of proposed changes for national industries and their links to NAICS 2012 industries in Part IV. OMB published a notification of intention to revise portions of NAICS in a May 22, 2014, Federal Register notice (79 FR 29626-29629). That notice solicited comments on the advisability of revising the NAICS 2012 structure for 2017: (1) To identify new and emerging industries, (2) to solicit comments on the desirability of maintaining a print manual, (3) to review the structure of the oil and gas extraction industries, (4) to solicit additional comments on the treatment of manufacturing units that outsource transformation, and (5) to make any required changes for errors and omissions in NAICS 2012. The deadline for submitting comments was July 21, 2014. After considering all proposals from the public, consulting with U.S. data users and industry groups, and undertaking extensive discussions with Statistics Canada and Mexico's Instituto Nacional de Estad[iacute]stica y Geograf[iacute]a (INEGI), the ECPCin collaboration with INEGI and Statistics Canadadeveloped recommendations for revisions to NAICS for 2017 that would apply to all three North American countries. These revisions focus on improving the description of current industries, identifying new and emerging industries, and recommending changes to industry content based on research and implementation experience. The ECPC recommends that NAICS United States 2017 incorporate changes as shown in Parts III and IV of this notice. Following an extensive process of development and discussions by the ECPC, with maximum possible public input, OMB seeks comment on the advisability of revising NAICS to incorporate the changes published in this notice. The revised NAICS would be employed in relevant data collections by all U.S. statistical agencies beginning with reference year 2017. Statistics Canada and INEGI are recommending acceptance of the proposed NAICS revisions for industry classification in the statistical programs of their national systems and are seeking comments in their respective countries. Representatives of the three countries will hold further discussions to consider public comments that they receive.

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is issuing final guidance to Federal agencies to implement Section 872 of the Duncan Hunter National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2009 (hereafter referred to as ``section 872''), as that statute applies to grants. As section 872 required, OMB and the General Services Administration (GSA) have established an integrity and performance system that includes governmentwide data with specified information related to the integrity and performance of entities awarded Federal grants and contracts. This system, currently designated as the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS), integrates various sources of information on the eligibility of organizations for Government awards and is currently available at https://www.fapiis.gov. This final guidance implements section 872's requirements for recipients and Federal awarding agencies to report information that will appear in the OMB-designated integrity and performance system and for Federal awarding agencies to consider information the system contains about a non-Federal entity before awarding a grant to that non-Federal entity. The final guidance for grants, which also applies to cooperative agreements, also addresses how the designated integrity and performance system and other information may be used in assessing recipient integrity.
