ACTION: Notice of proposed fee revisions and request for comment. AGENCY: The U.S. & Foreign Commercial Service (US&FCS) within the International Trade Administration (ITA) is seeking comment on its proposal to adjust user fees in light of an independent cost study which concluded that the US&FCS is not fully covering its costs for providing services under the current fee structure, as provided in the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A–25. ITA provides a wide range of export and investment promotion information and services to U.S. individuals and entities. The services considered here are a subset of ITA activities that involve relatively more intensive time engagements with particular client firms; ITA will continue to provide information and services that are less intensive and/or benefit the general public without charge. As part of this proposal, US&FCS also proposes to revise the standards related to company size for determining the fees to be charged.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The statutory mission of US&FCS is to ‘‘place primary emphasis on the promotion of exports of goods and services from the United States, particularly by small businesses and medium-sized businesses, and on the protection of United States business interests abroad . . . through activities that include assisting United States exporters.’’ 15 U.S.C. Sec. 4721(b). The statute further defines the term ‘‘United States exporter’’ at 15 U.S.C. Sec. 4721(j) as a U.S. citizen, U.S. corporation, or foreign corporation that is more than 95% U.S.-owned, that ‘‘exports or seeks to export, goods or services produced in the United States.’’ In addition, US&FCS leads the federal government’s investment promotion efforts ‘‘to attract and retain investment in the American economy’’ as provided in Executive Order 13577—SelectUSA Initiative (June 15, 2011). In carrying out these efforts, US&FCS may collect user fees from U.S. economic development organizations that seek to promote their locality to foreign investors. OMB Circular A–25 requires the recovery of an appropriate share of the full cost through user fees for goods and services provided to recipients of benefits beyond those accruing to the general public. Specifically, section 6 of Circular A–25 states that ‘‘when a service (or privilege) provides special benefits to an identifiable recipient beyond those that accrue to the general public, a charge will be imposed (to recover the full cost to the Federal Government for providing the special benefit, or the market price).’’ A ‘‘user fee’’ is the amount paid by a recipient of a special benefit beyond those benefits accruing to the general public. A ‘‘special benefit’’ may accrue and a user fee be imposed when a government PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 service: (a) Enables the beneficiary to obtain more immediate or substantial gains or values than those that accrue to the general public; (b) is performed at the request or for the convenience of the recipient, and is beyond the services regularly received by members of the same industry or group or by the general public; or (c) provides business stability or contributes to public confidence in the business activity of the beneficiary. The direct or indirect cost of a service provided by the Federal Government includes, but is not limited to, the following: • Direct and indirect personnel costs, including salaries and fringe benefits such as medical insurance and retirement. Retirement costs should include all (funded or unfunded) accrued costs not covered by employee contributions as specified in Circular A–11. • Physical overhead, consulting, or other indirect costs including material and supply costs, utilities, insurance travel, and rents or imputed rents on land, buildings, and equipment. • The management and supervisory costs. • The costs of enforcement, collection, research, establishment of standards, and regulation, including any environmental impact statements. Business Size Standards To comply with the Small Business Act, US&FCS, in consultation with the Small Business Administration (SBA), proposes the following standards related to company size: • Small Business: The company qualifies as a ‘‘small business’’ under SBA’s size standards matched to the North American Industry Classification System Codes. • Medium-sized Business: The company does not qualify under SBA’s size standards matched to the North American Industry Classification System Codes, but has less than $1 billion in annual revenue. • Large Business: The company does not qualify under SBA’s size standards matched to the North American Industry Classification System Codes and has more than $1 billion in annual revenue. The US&FCS is committed to ensuring small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) can access the services that US&FCS provides. The US&FCS has historically offered a discount to SMEs, as well as to U.S. economic development organizations and non-profit educational institutions. US&FCS proposes to continue discounted fees for these target populations. Rather than applying a E:\FR\FM\21DEN1.SGM 21DEN1
