If you have questions on viewing the docket, call Renee V. Wright, Program Manager, Docket Operations, telephone 202–366–9826. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Amtrak Dock Bridge at mile 5.0, across the Passaic River, at Harrison New Jersey, has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 35 feet at mean high water and 40 feet at mean low water. The owner of the bridge, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, requested this temporary deviation to facilitate track repairs to be conducted on nine weekends at the bridge. The bridge can not open during the prosecution of these repairs and the work must be conducted on weekends because during week days the frequency of rail traffic crossings is prohibitive. Vessels able to pass under the closed draw may do so at all times. The Amtrak Dock Bridge has not received a request to open for vessel traffic since 2004. Under this temporary deviation the Amtrak Dock Bridge may remain in the closed position all day on Saturday and Sunday on the following weekends: May 30 and 31; June 6 and 7; June 13 and 14; June 20 and 21; June 27 and 28; July 11 and 12; July 18 and 19; July 25 and 26, and August 1 and 2, 2009. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the bridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the designated time period. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: May 13, 2009. Gary Kassof, Bridge Program Manager, First Coast Guard District. [FR Doc.

No public comments were received in response to GSAM Part 513. Prior to publication of the ANPR, internal comments were incorporated. The current GSAM Part 513 implements three of the FAR Part 13 subparts and the policy at GSAM 513.003. There are no clauses associated with GSAM Part 513, and no supplementary subparts. The proposed rule deleted the policy statement at GSAM 513.003 and certain GSA-specific forms that are redundant to standard or optional forms in the FAR, as well as the GSAM text associated with them. The GSA review team noted that the GSAM Part 513 material currently coded as regulatory, i.e., GSAR, does not, in fact, contain regulatory material. The GSAR 513.302–70, 513.303–3(a) and (b), and 513.307 are considered policy, and this material has been converted to GSAM from GSAR. This change is shown by lining out the current GSAR text. The effect is to remove all of the GSAM Part 513 GSAR material. However, this former GSAR material has been retained, with some modifications, in the GSAM, which is also available to the public on the GSAM web site.

Regulatory Flexibility Act The General Services Administration certifies that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., because the changes are primarily editorial in nature. An Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis has, therefore, not been performed. No comments were received in response to the shift from GSAR to GSAM. C.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    This is part of the GSAM Rewrite Project, initiated in 2006 to 
revise, update, and simplify the GSA Acquisition Manual (GSAM). An 
Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR), with a request for 
comments, was published in the Federal Register at 71 FR 7910 on 
February 15, 2006. No public comments were received in response to GSAM 
Part 513. Prior to publication of the ANPR, internal comments were 
incorporated. The current GSAM Part 513 implements three of the FAR 
Part 13 subparts and the policy at GSAM 513.003. There are no clauses 
associated with GSAM Part 513, and no supplementary subparts. The 
proposed rule deleted the policy statement at GSAM 513.003 and certain 
GSA-specific forms that are redundant to standard or optional forms in 
the FAR, as well as the GSAM text associated with them.
    The GSA review team noted that the GSAM Part 513 material currently 
coded as regulatory, i.e., GSAR, does not, in fact, contain regulatory 
material. The GSAR 513.302-70, 513.303-3(a) and (b), and 513.307 are 
considered policy, and this material has been converted to GSAM from 
GSAR. This change is shown by lining out the current GSAR text. The 
effect is to remove all of the GSAM Part 513 GSAR material. However, 
this former GSAR material has been retained, with some modifications, 
in the GSAM, which is also available to the public on the GSAM web 
site.
    A notice of proposed rulemaking was published in the Federal 
Register at 73 FR 44955 on August 1, 2008. The public comment period 
for the proposed rule closed September 30, 2008. No comments were 
received. Therefore, the proposed rule is being converted to a final 
rule without change.
    This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not 
subject to review under Section 6(b) of Executive Order 12866, 
Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is 
not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The General Services Administration certifies that this final rule 
will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 
U.S.C. 601, et seq., because the changes are primarily editorial in 
nature. An Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis has, therefore, not 
been performed. No comments were received in response to the shift from 
GSAR to GSAM.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the changes to 
the GSAR do not impose recordkeeping or information collection 
requirements, or otherwise collect information from offerors, 
contractors, or members of the public that require approval of the 
Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, et seq.
