In accordance with section 3687 of Public Law 106-398, which was added by section 3141(a) of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2015, Executive Order 13699 (June 26, 2015), and the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act and its implementing regulations issued by the General Services Administration (GSA), the Advisory Board on Toxic Substances and Worker Health was established on July 2, 2015. A Charter and Membership Balance Plan were filed in accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA). The new provision added to EEOICPA by the NDAA specifies that the Director of the Advisory Board's staff must be a member of the Senior Executive Service (SES).

Document Number: 2016-02745
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-02-12
Agency: Department of Agriculture
The Office of Procurement and Property Management (OPPM) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) amends the Agriculture Acquisition Regulation (AGAR) by adding a new clause entitled ``Fire Suppression and Liability.'' Section 8205 of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (2014 Act) provided the USDA Forest Service with permanent authority for Stewardship End Result Contracting by adding a new Section 604 to the Healthy Forests Restoration Act of 2003. Section 8205 contains a requirement that the agency use a fire liability provision in all stewardship contracts and agreements that is in substantially the same form as the fire liability provisions contained in the integrated resource timber contract in Forest Service Contract Numbered 2400-13, Part H, Section H.4. This final rule establishes a new clause in the AGAR, the USDA supplement to the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), for use in Integrated Resource Service Contracts (IRSC) subject to the FAR. This new AGAR clause addresses fire liability on stewardship contracts as required in the 2014 Agricultural Act.
