SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    As part of its regular cycle to review and update its real property 
policies, GSA is proposing to revise its policy on Art-in-Architecture 
that is located in FMR part 102-77 (41 CFR part 102-77). This part was 
last revised on November 8, 2005 at 70 FR 67847.

Proposed Changes

    The proposed changes to FMR part 102-77 reflect an internal as well 
as an interagency collaborative effort. Major proposed changes include 
the following:
    Section 102-77.10 recommends the practice of commissioning artwork 
and also requires that the art be the work of living American artists.
    Section 102-77.20 proposes that to the maximum extent possible, 
agencies should collaborate with representatives of the client agency 
and with others who are tied to the project to commission the nation's 
most talented artists.
    Section 102-77.25 calls for agencies to implement the Art-in-
Architecture policies in a manner that receives national and local 
visibility to facilitate participation by a large and diverse group of 
American artists.

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 was not 
subject to review under Section 6(b) of E.O. 12866, Regulatory Planning 
and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is not a major rule 
under 5 U.S.C. 804.

C. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    While these revisions are substantive, this proposed rule would 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. This proposed 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 proposed 
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 proposed rule is exempt from Congressional review prescribed 
by 5 U.S.C. 801 since it relates to agency management and personnel.
