published Combined Federal Campaign regulations to January 1, 2017.

DATES: The effective date of the regulations published in the Federal

2017.
    Regarding funds contributed to the CFC during the 2016 campaign 
year, LFCCs and PCFOs will continue to operate, disburse funds, and

CFR part 950 as amended at 71 FR 67284, Nov. 20, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. Office of Personnel Management 
(OPM) issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on August 17, 2015 to 
amend 5 CFR part 950 to change the effective date of the new rule from 
January 1, 2016 to January 1, 2017. During the comment period, OPM 
received two comments, including one from a Federal agency and one from 
a Local Federal Coordinating Committee (LFCC). These comments are 
addressed below.
    The Department of Defense expressed its support for the amendment 
to allow additional time to test new systems before they are deployed. 
The Greater Arkansas CFC LFCC requested clarification on the process by 
which a contract will be awarded to a vendor to serve as the Central 
Campaign Administrator and the method by which the system will be 
tested.
    The revision involves the change of the effective date of the new 
CFC regulations published in the Federal Register on April 17, 2014. 
The new effective date for the CFC regulations would ensure that the 
tools need to put these reforms in place--including the pivotal online 
charity application and donor pledging systems--are thoroughly tested 
and fully operational before being made available to charities and 
donors.
    On August 17, 2015 (80 FR 49173), OPM published a proposed rule 
with requests for public comment in the Federal Register. The Agency 
received two comments, neither of which opposed the change of date. It 
is therefore publishing the proposed rule as final without change.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

impact on a substantial number of small entities. Charitable 
organizations applying to the CFC have an existing, independent 
obligation to comply with the eligibility and public accountability 
standards contained in current CFC regulations. Streamlining these 
standards will be less burdensome.
