ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: § 165.T09–0951 Safety Zone; Salvage Operations, Chicago River, Chicago, IL. VerDate Sep<11>2014 GENERAL SERVICES ADMINISTRATION The General Services Administration is amending the Federal Management Regulation (FMR) by changing its personal property policy. The changes include the addition of certain veterans organizations as eligible donation recipients, updating and clarifying language regarding the use of Standard Form 97, The United States Government Certificate to Obtain Title to a Vehicle (SF 97), instructing agencies to ensure against unauthorized use of blank copies of SF 97, making minor clarifying edits to existing policies, and removing and reserving certain regulations that are no longer required. SUMMARY: DATES: Effective: October 30, 2014. Mr. Robert Holcombe, Office of Governmentwide Policy, Office of Asset and Transportation Management (MT), at 202–501–3828 or by email at Robert.Holcombe@gsa.gov for clarification of content. For information pertaining to status or publication schedules contact the Regulatory Secretariat at 202–501–4755. Please cite FMR Case 2012–102–2. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: A. Background GSA published a proposed rule in the Federal Register at 77 FR 50447 on August 21, 2012. As a result, two comments were received that suggested revisions or clarifications to Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) section 31.205–8 concerning whether contractor contributions or donations of contractor- PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 64513 owned property to veterans organizations are allowable costs under a contract. Because that issue is outside the scope of this final rule, both submitters were provided with the procedures for suggesting changes to the FAR. Additionally GSA informed the submitters that Federal property used by contractors is screened for use and donation under the plant clearance processes contained in FAR part 45. Specifically, Federal property is made available for screening by other Federal agencies and eligible donees under FAR section 45.602–3. The proposed new subpart J, ‘‘Insuring Donated Property,’’ published in the proposed rule has been removed from this final rule because GSA determined that, as a general matter, the decision to acquire insurance rests with the recipient of the property. No other substantive changes have been made to that which was published as the proposed rule. B. Changes The changes in this final rule include (1) the addition of certain veterans organizations as eligible donation recipients as authorized by 40 U.S.C. 549(c)(3)(C); (2) updating and clarifying language regarding the use of Standard Form 97, The United States Government Certificate to Obtain Title to a Vehicle (SF 97), and instructing agencies to ensure against unauthorized use of blank copies of SF 97; (3) making minor clarifying edits to existing policies; and (4) removing and reserving current FMR sections 102–37.180 and 102–37.185 as screener identification cards are no longer required. C. 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 final rule is not a significant regulatory action, and therefore, was not 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. D. Regulatory Flexibility Act This final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities E:\FR\FM\30OCR1.SGM 30OCR1 64514 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 210 / Thursday, October 30, 2014 / Rules and Regulations 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 and public property. 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 does not substantially affect the rights or obligations of non-agency parties.

Federal Management Regulation; Donation of Surplus Personal 
Property

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

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The General Services Administration is amending the Federal 
Management Regulation (FMR) by changing its personal property policy. 
The changes include the addition of certain veterans organizations as 
eligible donation recipients, updating and clarifying language 
regarding the use of Standard Form 97, The United States Government 
Certificate to Obtain Title to a Vehicle (SF 97), instructing agencies 
to ensure against unauthorized use of blank copies of SF 97, making 
minor clarifying edits to existing policies, and removing and reserving 
certain regulations that are no longer required.

DATES: Effective: October 30, 2014.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Robert Holcombe, Office of 
Governmentwide Policy, Office of Asset and Transportation Management 
(MT), at 202-501-3828 or by email at Robert.Holcombe@gsa.gov for 
clarification of content. For information pertaining to status or 
publication schedules contact the Regulatory Secretariat at 202-501-
4755. Please cite FMR Case 2012-102-2.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    GSA published a proposed rule in the Federal Register at 77 FR 
50447 on August 21, 2012. As a result, two comments were received that 
suggested revisions or clarifications to Federal Acquisition Regulation 
(FAR) section 31.205-8 concerning whether contractor contributions or 
donations of contractor-owned property to veterans organizations are 
allowable costs under a contract. Because that issue is outside the 
scope of this final rule, both submitters were provided with the 
procedures for suggesting changes to the FAR. Additionally GSA informed 
the submitters that Federal property used by contractors is screened 
for use and donation under the plant clearance processes contained in 
FAR part 45. Specifically, Federal property is made available for 
screening by other Federal agencies and eligible donees under FAR 
section 45.602-3. The proposed new subpart J, ``Insuring Donated 
Property,'' published in the proposed rule has been removed from this 
final rule because GSA determined that, as a general matter, the 
decision to acquire insurance rests with the recipient of the property. 
No other substantive changes have been made to that which was published 
as the proposed rule.

B. Changes

    The changes in this final rule include (1) the addition of certain 
veterans organizations as eligible donation recipients as authorized by 
40 U.S.C. 549(c)(3)(C); (2) updating and clarifying language regarding 
the use of Standard Form 97, The United States Government Certificate 
to Obtain Title to a Vehicle (SF 97), and instructing agencies to 
ensure against unauthorized use of blank copies of SF 97; (3) making 
minor clarifying edits to existing policies; and (4) removing and 
reserving current FMR sections 102-37.180 and 102-37.185 as screener 
identification cards are no longer required.

C. 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 final rule is not a significant regulatory action, and therefore, 
was not 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.

D. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    This final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities

[[Page 64514]]

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 and 
public property.

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 does not substantially affect the rights or obligations of 
non-agency parties.

Vehicle (SF 97) upon notification by GSA that a donee has been 
identified. The SF 97 may be prepared by GSA if mutually agreed upon by 
the holding agency and GSA. The holding agency is designated as the 
``transferor.''
    (b) If the holding agency authorizes or requires any other entity, 
including a contractor or grantee, to complete this SF 97, the holding 
agency must first ensure compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act.
    (c) The SF 97 is a serially numbered, controlled form, stock number 
7540-00-634-4047, which can be obtained by executive agencies from GSA 
Global Supply or online at www.gsaglobalsupply.gsa.gov. Proper 
precautions shall be exercised by the agency to prevent blank copies of 
the SF 97 from being obtained by unauthorized persons.


Sec.  102-37.590  In transferring donated surplus vehicles, what is the 
responsibility of the SASP?

    The SASP is responsible for facilitating the transfer of the 
surplus vehicle to the donee in accordance with this part. The SASP

SF 97 as ``transferee'' unless the SASP is the donee.


Sec.  102-37.595  When transferring donated surplus vehicles, what is 
the responsibility of the donee?

    The donee is responsible for processing the SF 97 in accordance 
with state licensing and titling authorities. The donee signs the SF 97 
as ``transferee'' upon receipt of the surplus motor vehicle. The donee 
is responsible for notifying the SASP if a SF 97 is not provided by the 
Government.


Sec.  102-37.600  When does title to a surplus donated vehicle change 
hands?

    Title to the vehicle rests with the holding agency until the SF 97 
is signed by the donee upon receipt of the surplus motor vehicle. (If 
applicable under the terms of the donation, the title will be 
conditional until the end of the period of restriction).
