Background As part of GSA’s regulatory reform efforts, GSA has been performing a comprehensive review of the regulatory requirements in the GSAR. As a part of these efforts, GSA discovered that a Federal Register notification had not been published to finalize this interim rule. As a result, GSA included as part of the Fall edition of the Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions in the Federal Register at 83 FR 58086 on November 16, 2018 its intention to publish a final rule notification in the Federal Register.

GSA exercised this authority effective on the date of publication of the interim rule. GSA published the interim rule in the Federal Register at 73 FR 54334, on September 19, 2008. The interim rule was a straight implementation of the statute. No public comments were submitted in response to the interim rule. The program has been operating under the interim rule since 2008 without concern and with no statutory changes. Therefore, there are no changes from the interim rule made in the final rule. This action represents administrative clean-up for purposes of publishing a notification in the Federal Register of the finalization of this rule. II.

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 Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993.

The rule opens the Federal Supply Schedule 84 for use by other governmental entities to enhance intergovernmental cooperation. The objective of this rule is to make ‘‘government’’ (considering all levels) more efficient by reducing duplication of effort and utilizing volume purchasing techniques for the acquisition of law enforcement, security, and certain other related items.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    As part of GSA's regulatory reform efforts, GSA has been performing 
a comprehensive review of the regulatory requirements in the GSAR. As a 
part of these efforts, GSA discovered that a Federal Register 
notification had not been published to finalize this interim rule. As a 
result, GSA included as part of the Fall edition of the Unified Agenda 
of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions in the Federal Register 
at 83 FR 58086 on November 16, 2018 its intention to publish a final 
rule notification in the Federal Register.
    The purpose of this rule is the straightforward implementation of 
the statutory authority provided by Public Law 110-248, The Local 
Preparedness Acquisition Act to open Schedule 84 or any amended or 
subsequent version of that Federal supply classification group

[[Page 14625]]

to cooperative purchasing. GSA exercised this authority effective on 
the date of publication of the interim rule. GSA published the interim 
rule in the Federal Register at 73 FR 54334, on September 19, 2008.
    The interim rule was a straight implementation of the statute. No 
public comments were submitted in response to the interim rule. The 
program has been operating under the interim rule since 2008 without 
concern and with no statutory changes. Therefore, there are no changes 
from the interim rule made in the final rule. This action represents 
administrative clean-up for purposes of publishing a notification in 
the Federal Register of the finalization of this rule.

II. Discussion and Analysis

    No public comments were submitted in response to the interim rule. 
Therefore, there are no changes from the interim rule made in the final 
rule.

III. Executive Order 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 Executive Order 12866, 
Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is 
not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804.

IV. Executive Order 13771

    This final rule is not subject to E.O. 13771, because this rule is 
not a significant regulatory action under E.O. 12866.

V. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The change may 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.
    GSA has prepared a Final Regulatory Flexibility Analysis (FRFA) 
consistent with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq. 
The FRFA is summarized as follows:

    In order to implement Public Law 110-248, The Local Preparedness 
Acquisition Act, GSA is adopting as final the interim rule as laid 
out in GSAR Case 2008-G517, which published in the Federal Register 
at 73 FR 54334, on September 19, 2008. The Act amends section 502 of 
Title 40, United States Code, to authorize the Administrator of 
General Services to provide for the use by State or local 
governments of Federal Supply Schedules of the General Services 
Administration (GSA) for alarm and signal systems, facility 
management systems, firefighting and rescue equipment, law 
enforcement and security equipment, marine craft and related 
equipment, special purpose clothing, and related services (as 
contained in Federal supply classification code group 84 or any 
amended or subsequent version of that Federal supply classification 
group). The rule opens the Federal Supply Schedule 84 for use by 
other governmental entities to enhance intergovernmental 
cooperation. The objective of this rule is to make ``government'' 
(considering all levels) more efficient by reducing duplication of 
effort and utilizing volume purchasing techniques for the 
acquisition of law enforcement, security, and certain other related 
items.
    No public comments were submitted in response to the interim 
rule. Therefore, there are no changes from the interim rule made in 
the final rule.

    Interested parties may obtain a copy of the FRFA from the 
Regulatory Secretariat Division. The Regulatory Secretariat Division 
has submitted a copy of the FRFA to the Chief Counsel for Advocacy of 
the Small Business Administration.

VI. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35) does apply; 
however, these changes to the GSAR do not impose additional information 
collection requirements to the paperwork burden previously approved 
under the Office of Management and Budget Control Number 3090-0250, 
titled: Zero Burden Information Collection Reports.
