Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 and (FY) 2014 List of Designated Federal 
Entities and Federal Entities

AGENCY: Office of Management and Budget.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: As required by Section 8G of the Inspector General Act of 
1978, as amended (IG Act; 5 U.S.C. Appendix), this notice provides the 
FY 2013 and FY 2014 list of Designated Federal Entities and Federal 
Entities.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mike Wetklow, Office of Management and 
Budget, Office of Federal Financial Management, New Executive Office 
Building, Washington, DC 20503, (202) 395-3998.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice provides the FY 2013 and FY 2014 
List of Designated Federal Entities and Federal Entities which, under 
Section 8G of the IG Act, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is 
required to publish. This list is also posted on the OMB Web site at 
http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb.
    The list of the ``Federal Entities'' has been updated to reflect: 
(1) The re-establishment of the Administrative Conference of the United 
States in March 2010 (ACUS had not received funding between 1995 and 
2009); (2) the establishment of the Financial Stability Oversight 
Council in Public Law 111-203 (Section 111); (3)the establishment of 
the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council in Public Law 112-141 
(Section 1603); and (4) the establishment of the Valles Caldera Trust 
in Public Law 106-248.
    The list of the ``Designated Federal Entities'' has been updated to 
reflect the amendments in Public Law 111-203 and Public Law 111-259 to 
Section 8G of the IG Act. With respect to the IG Act's listing of 
``designated Federal entities'' in Section 8G(a)(2), Public Law 111-203 
added the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection to the pre-existing 
listing for ``the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System''; 
and, Public Law 111-259 added the Defense Intelligence Agency, the 
National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, the National Reconnaissance 
Office, and the National Security Agency. In addition, Public Law 111-
203 amended Section 8G(a)(4), which is the provision of the IG Act that 
defines the term ``head of the designated Federal entity.'' As an 
initial matter, Congress amended the introductory text of Section 
8G(a)(4) to state that--in the case of boards and commissions--``the 
term `head of the designated Federal entity' means the board or 
commission of the designated Federal entity.'' As a result of this 
amendment, Section 8G(a)(4) sets forth three main categories of 
``designated Federal entities'' with respect to who is the ``head'' of 
the entity: the term ``head of the designated Federal entity'' means 
(1) ``the board or commission of the designated Federal entity''; (2) 
``in the event the designated Federal entity does not have a board or 
commission, any person or persons designated by statute as the head of 
a designated Federal entity''; and (3) ``if no such designation exists, 
the chief policymaking officer or board of a designated Federal entity 
as identified in the list published pursuant to subsection (h)(1) of 
this section, except that . . .'' In addition, Public Law 111-203 
amended Section 8G(a)(4) to include six additional entity-specific 
exceptions to those general rules; in these exceptions, Congress 
specifies who is the ``head of the designated Federal entity'' for each 
of those entities. The pre-existing exceptions--for the National 
Science Foundation and the United States Postal Service--are found at 
subparagraphs (A) and (B), and the six added exceptions--for the 
Federal Labor Relations Authority, the National Archives and Records 
Administration, the National Credit Union Administration, the National 
Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and 
the Peace Corps--are found at subparagraphs (C) through (H).
    The list below is divided into two groups: Designated Federal 
Entities and Federal Entities. Designated Federal Entities are listed 
in the IG Act, except for those agencies that have ceased to exist or 
that have been deleted from the list. The Designated Federal Entities 
are required to establish and maintain Offices of Inspector General to: 
(1) Conduct and supervise audits and investigations relating to 
programs and operations; (2) promote economy, efficiency, and 
effectiveness of, and to prevent and detect fraud and abuse in such 
programs and operations; and (3) provide a means of keeping the entity 
head and the Congress fully and currently informed about problems and 
deficiencies relating to the administration of such programs and 
operations and the necessity for, and progress of, corrective actions.
    Section 8G(a)(1) of the IG Act defines a ``Federal entity'' as: any 
Government corporation (within the meaning of section 103 (1) of title 
5, United States Code), any Government controlled corporation (within 
the meaning of section 103 (2) of such title), or any other entity in 
the Executive Branch of the Government, or any independent regulatory 
agency, but does not include:
    (1) An establishment (as defined in section 11(2) of this Act or 
part of an establishment;
    (2) a designated Federal entity [as defined in section 8G(a)(2) of 
the Act] or part of a designated Federal entity;
    (3) the Executive Office of the President;
    (4) the Central Intelligence Agency;
    (5) the Government Accountability Office; or
    (6) any entity in the judicial or legislative branches of the 
Government, including the Administrative Office of the United States 
Courts and the Architect of the Capitol and any activities under the 
direction of the Architect of the Capitol.

required to report annually to each House of the Congress and OMB on 
audit and investigative activities in their organizations.
