publishing a ``list of the compliance assistance resources available to 
small businesses'' and a list of the points of contacts in agencies 
``to act as a liaison between the agency and small business concerns'' 
with respect to the collection of information and the control of

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Small Business Paperwork Relief Act of 
2002 (Pub. L. 107-198) requires OMB to ``publish in the Federal 
Register and make available on the Internet (in consultation with the 
Small Business Administration) on an annual basis a list of the 
compliance assistance resources available to small businesses'' (44 
U.S.C. 3504(c)(6)). OMB has, with the active assistance and support of 
the Small Business Administration (SBA) and the Business Gateway 
Program, assembled a list of the compliance assistance resources 
available to small businesses. This list is available today on the 
following Web site: http://www.business.gov/business-law/contacts/federal/. There is also a link to this information on the OMB Web site. 
In addition, under another provision of this Act, ``each agency shall, 
with respect to the collection of information and the control of 
paperwork, establish 1 point of contact in the agency to act as a 
liaison between the agency and small business concerns'' (44 U.S.C. 
3506(i)(1)). These contacts are also available at http://www.business.gov/business-law/contacts/federal/. OMB and SBA have 
chosen to discharge this statutory responsibility by publishing agency 
compliance contact information on the business.gov Web site. 
Business.gov delivers compliance information to the public more 
effectively than having businesses go to individual agency Web sites, 
thereby improving the probability of success for business owners and 
agency regulatory programs. The public is not only able to find agency 
points of contact for compliance under the ``contacts and help'' tab on 
Business.gov, but when users look for information in the ``small 
business guides'' on particular topics, the relevant agency points of 
contact automatically appear as part of the guide.
