GSA collaborated with four agencies to conduct a review and determine if it is still current and accurate. This final rule reflects the changes recommended by GSA and the other four agencies.

Substantive Changes This revision eliminates references to the GSA’s Federal Supply Service, which was reorganized after the regulation was last published and is now called the GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service (FAS). It also updates addresses and names of other GSA business lines, and it provides a new address for courier mail for the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals. C.

Regulatory Flexibility Act 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.

Federal Management Regulation; Transportation Payment and Audit

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

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The General Services Administration (GSA) is amending the 
Federal Management Regulation (FMR) covering Transportation Payment and 
Audit. This final rule updates information and corrects mailing and web 
site addresses.

DATES: Effective Date: This final rule is effective June 26, 2009.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The Regulatory Secretariat, Room 4035, 
GS Building, Washington, DC 20405, (202) 208-7312, for information 
pertaining to status or publication schedules. For clarification of 
content, contact Patrick O'Grady at (202) 208-4493. Please cite FMR 
case 2009-102-4, Amendment 2009-04.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Background

    Federal Management Regulation (FMR) part 102-118 (41 CFR part 102-
118, Transportation Payment and Audit) was last reviewed and amended on 
September 24, 2004 (69 FR 57617). GSA collaborated with four agencies 
to conduct a review and determine if it is still current and accurate. 
This final rule reflects the changes recommended by GSA and the other 
four agencies. Because the changes only apply to administrative 
matters, GSA has determined it is not necessary to comment on this 
amendment.

B. Substantive Changes

    This revision eliminates references to the GSA's Federal Supply 
Service, which was reorganized after the regulation was last published 
and is now called the GSA's Federal Acquisition Service (FAS). It also 
updates addresses and names of other GSA business lines, and it 
provides a new address for courier mail for the Civilian Board of 
Contract Appeals.

C. Executive Order 12866

    GSA has determined that this final rule is not a significant 
regulatory action for the purposes of Executive Order 12866.

D. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    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 final 
rule only applies to internal agency management, it will not have a 
significant effect on the public.

E. 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.

F. 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.
