As such, the Agency has determined that this action will not have a substantial direct effect on States or tribal governments, on the relationship between the national government and the States or tribal governments, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government or between the Federal Government and Indian Tribes. Thus, the Agency has determined that Executive Order 13132, entitled ‘‘Federalism’’ (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999) and Executive Order 13175, entitled ‘‘Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments’’ (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000) do not apply to this final rule. In addition, this final rule does not impose any enforceable duty or contain any unfunded mandate as described under Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (2 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.). This action does not involve any technical standards that would require Agency consideration of voluntary consensus standards pursuant to section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note). PART 180—[AMENDED] 1. The authority citation for part 180 continues to read as follows: ■ VII.

E.O. 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility.

Federal Management Regulation (FMR); Transportation Payment and 
Audit

AGENCY: Office of Government-wide Policy (OGP), General Services 
Administration (GSA).

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: GSA is amending the Federal Management Regulation (FMR) to 
update the name and contact information of the Civilian Board of 
Contract Appeals (CBCA) from the previously named General Services 
Board of Contract Appeals (GSBCA).

DATES: Effective Date: November 29, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For clarification of content, contact 
Lee Gregory, Office of Government-wide Policy, at 202-501-1533. Please

F Street NW., Washington, DC 20405, 202-501-4755.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    The Civilian Board of Contract Appeals (CBCA) was established on 
January 6, 2007, pursuant to section 847 of the National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2006, Public Law 109-163, 119 Stat. 
3391. That portion of the statute is now incorporated into the 2011 
codification of the Contract Disputes Act, 41 U.S.C. 7101-7109, and the 
section specifically addressing the establishment of the CBCA is 
incorporated into 41 U.S.C. 7105(b)(1) ``There is established in the 
General Services Administration the Civilian Board of Contract 
Appeals.'' Although the Board is functionally located within U.S. 
General Services Administration as of July 8, 2011, ``GSA'' is not part 
of its name.
    This final rule amends FMR part 102-118 (41 CFR part 102-118) by 
removing the term ``General Services Board of Contract Appeals'' and 
adding the term ``Civilian Board of Contract Appeals (CBCA)'' in its 
place.

B. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563

    Executive Orders (E.O.s) 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess 
all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives, and if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public 
health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). E.O. 
13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, 
of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. 
This is not a significant regulatory action, and therefore, will not be 
subject to review under Section 6(b) of E.O. 12866, Regulatory Planning 
and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This final rule is not a major 
rule under 5 U.S.C. 804.

C. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    While these revisions are substantive, this final rule would not 
have a

[[Page 71529]]

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. This final rule is also exempt from the Administrative Procedure 
Act per 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(2) because it applies to agency management or 
personnel.

D. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the changes to 
the FMR do not impose recordkeeping or information collection 
requirements, or the collection of information from offerors, 
contractors, or members of the public 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 also exempt from Congressional review prescribed 
by 5 U.S.C. 801 since it relates to agency management and personnel.
