Regulatory Flexibility Act Since the Department is of the opinion that this rulemaking is exempt from the provisions of 5 U.S.C. 553, there is no requirement for an analysis under the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Executive Order 12988 Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 This rulemaking does not involve a mandate that will result in the expenditure by State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100 million or more in any year and it will not significantly or uniquely affect small governments. Therefore, no actions were deemed necessary under the provisions of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 The Department does not believe this rulemaking is a major rule under the criteria of 5 U.S.C. 804. Based on the criteria of 5 U.S.C. 804(2), the Department does not believe this rulemaking will have an annual effect on the economy of $100,000,000 or more. The Department estimates that this rulemaking will result in the elimination of approximately $20,000,000 in registration fees that otherwise would have been collected by the Department. Executive Orders 12372 and 13132 This rulemaking does not have sufficient federalism implications to require consultations or warrant the preparation of a federalism summary impact statement. The regulations implementing Executive Order 12372 regarding intergovernmental consultation on Federal programs and activities do not apply to this rulemaking. 16:33 May 05, 2020 Jkt 250001 Executive Order 13175 The Department of State has determined that this rulemaking will not have tribal implications, will not impose substantial direct compliance costs on Indian tribal governments, and will not preempt tribal law. Accordingly, the requirements of Executive Order 13175 do not apply to this rulemaking. Paperwork Reduction Act This rulemaking does not impose or revise any information collections subject to 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35. Executive Order 13771 Background The final regulations (TD 9806) that are the subject of this correction are under sections 1291, 1298, 6038, and 6046 of the Internal Revenue Code.

AGENCY: E:\FR\FM\06MYR1.SGM 06MYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 88 / Wednesday, May 6, 2020 / Rules and Regulations We are updating our regulation listing our facility addresses and contact information to reflect changes to this information. We are also revising our regulation on public use of NARA facilities to remove outdated procedures, update in response to organizational and technological changes, and streamline the provisions for easier reading. We are also revising both regulations for plain language purposes. SUMMARY: This rule is effective June 15, 2020, without further action, unless we receive actionable adverse comments by June 5, 2020. If we receive such comments, we will publish a withdrawal of the rule in the Federal Register. DATES: You may submit comments, identified by RIN 3095–AC03, by either of the following methods: • Federal eRulemaking Portal: http:// www.regulations.gov. Follow the site’s instructions for submitting comments. • Mail (for paper, flash drive, or CD– ROM submissions. Include RIN 3095– AC03 on the submission): National Archives and Records Administration; Regulation Comments Desk, Suite 4100; 8601 Adelphi Road; College Park, MD 20740–6001. Instructions: All submissions must include NARA’s name and the regulatory information number for this rulemaking (RIN 3095–AC03). We may publish any comments we receive without changes, including any personal information you include. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kimberly Keravuori, Regulatory and External Policy Program Manager, by email at regulation_comments@ nara.gov, or by telephone at 301.837.3151. ADDRESSES: We are updating addresses and contact information for Presidential libraries, records centers, and archival research facilities to reflect changes in operations, to add websites and email addresses and similar technology changes, to update URLs, and similar administrative changes. We are also updating information about public use of our facilities to better clarify provisions, including the kinds of events for which the public may request use of our spaces and the difference between removal and banning if it becomes necessary to restrict a person’s use. We are streamlining and clarifying rules regarding behavior and removing outdated provisions regarding requests to use space for private events. These changes will affect all customers who do business with NARA. This rule is SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:33 May 05, 2020 Jkt 250001 effective after 40 days for good cause as permitted by the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3)). We believe that a longer standard public comment period is unnecessary as this rule makes only minor changes to our agency facility regulations and does not change substantive requirements people must follow. Regulatory Analysis Review Under Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, 58 FR 51735 (September 30, 1993), and Executive Order 13563, Improving Regulation and Regulation Review, 76 FR 23821 (January 18, 2011) The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has reviewed this rulemaking and determined it is not ‘‘significant’’ under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866. It is not significant because it consists of administrative and minor revisions, involves agency organization and management, does not change substantive requirements, and imposes no costs on the public. Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601, et seq.) This review requires an agency to prepare an initial regulatory flexibility analysis and publish it when the agency publishes the proposed rule. This requirement does not apply if the agency certifies that the rulemaking will not, if promulgated, have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities (5 U.S.C. 603). We certify, after review and analysis, that this rulemaking will not have a significant adverse economic impact on small entities. Review Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) This rulemaking does not impose additional information collection requirements on the public that are subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act. However, 36 CFR 1280 continues to include three associated information collections already approved by OMB: 3095–0024, request to use Presidential library spaces, 3095–0040, request to film, photograph, or videotape, and 3095–0043, request to use NARA spaces. Because we are removing several sections of this regulation and reorganizing the provisions to be more streamlined, we are submitting a nonsubstantive change request to OMB to change the regulatory section numbers referred to in the information collections accordingly. PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 26849 Review Under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, 64 FR 43255 (August 4, 1999) Review under Executive Order 13132 requires that agencies review regulations for Federalism effects on the institutional interest of states and local governments, and, if the effects are sufficiently substantial, prepare a Federal assessment to assist senior policy makers. This rulemaking will not have any effects on state and local governments within the meaning of the Executive Order. Therefore, no Federalism assessment is required. Review Under Executive Order 13771, Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs, 82 FR 9339 (February 3, 2017) Review under E.O. 13771 seeks to reduce Federal regulations that impose private expenditures in order to comply with them, and to control those costs in any such regulations. OMB has reviewed this rulemaking and determined that it is exempt from E.O. 13771 requirements. This rulemaking is exempt because it involves agency organization, management, or personnel, modifies an existing rule, and does not involve regulatory costs subject to the Executive Order. Review Under the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (Sec. 202, Public Law 104– 4; 2 U.S.C. 1532) Review under the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act requires that agencies determine whether any Federal mandate in the rulemaking may result in state, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or the private sector, expending $100 million in any one year. NARA certifies that this rulemaking does not contain a Federal mandate that may result in such an expenditure, and this rulemaking is therefore not subject to this requirement.

GSA’s rules for requesting use of the facility will also apply if the facility is located on GSA property (see 41 CFR part 102– 74, subpart D, Occasional Use of Public Buildings). (3) Your request will need to include such information as the name of your group and any other organization that is participating, point-of-contact information, the date and time you are requesting, number of attendees, type of event, description of the event, and other information about the event to enable us to determine whether we can accommodate it. We may also request additional information. OMB control number 3095–0043 covers this information collection. (e) NARA facilities located on GPO property. None of the NARA facilities that are located on GPO property have spaces available for public use. § 1280.66 How we handle requests to use public areas.

(b) When we have completed this review, we will notify you of the decision. We may ask for additional information before deciding whether or not to approve your event. (c) We reserve the right to review, reject, or require changes in any E:\FR\FM\06MYR1.SGM 06MYR1 26857 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 88 / Wednesday, May 6, 2020 / Rules and Regulations material, activity, or caterer you intend to use for the event. § 1280.68 Fees for using public areas. (a) We are authorized to charge fees for occasional, non-official use of NARA public areas, as well as for services related to such use, including additional cleaning, security, and other staff services.

(b) Federal and quasi-Federal agencies, and state, local, and tribal governmental institutions using public space for official government functions pay fees for the costs of room rental, administrative fees, additional cleaning, security, and other staff services NARA provides. (c) You will be informed in advance and in writing of the total estimated cost associated with using the public area of interest. If we collect the fees directly, you will pay the National Archives Trust Fund. If the Foundation collects the fees, you will pay the National Archives Foundation. If a Presidential library foundation collects the fees, they will inform you where to submit the payment. § 1280.70 Additional rules that apply to approved events. (a) Once we approve your event, you must provide any support people you need to register guests, distribute approved literature, name tags, and other material. (b) We must approve in advance any item that you plan to distribute or display during your use of NARA property or facilities, or any notice or advertisement that refers, directly or indirectly, to NARA, the Foundation, a Presidential foundation or supporting organization, or the National Archives Trust Fund, or incorporates any of NARA’s logos or seals (see 36 CFR 1200.2). (c) We must approve in advance any vendor or caterer who will work in NARA facilities. You must comply with all NARA requirements for the use of food and drink at your event. (d) You may not allow or consume food or drink in areas where original records or historical materials are displayed.

RIN 3095-AC03


NARA Facilities, Locations, Hours, and Public Use

AGENCY: National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

ACTION: Direct final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

[[Page 26849]]

SUMMARY: We are updating our regulation listing our facility addresses 
and contact information to reflect changes to this information. We are 
also revising our regulation on public use of NARA facilities to remove 
outdated procedures, update in response to organizational and 
technological changes, and streamline the provisions for easier 
reading. We are also revising both regulations for plain language 
purposes.

DATES: This rule is effective June 15, 2020, without further action, 
unless we receive actionable adverse comments by June 5, 2020. If we 
receive such comments, we will publish a withdrawal of the rule in the 
Federal Register.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by RIN 3095-AC03, by 
either of the following methods:
     Federal eRulemaking Portal: http://www.regulations.gov. 
Follow the site's instructions for submitting comments.
     Mail (for paper, flash drive, or CD-ROM submissions. 
Include RIN 3095-AC03 on the submission): National Archives and Records 
Administration; Regulation Comments Desk, Suite 4100; 8601 Adelphi 
Road; College Park, MD 20740-6001.
    Instructions: All submissions must include NARA's name and the 
regulatory information number for this rulemaking (RIN 3095-AC03). We 
may publish any comments we receive without changes, including any 
personal information you include.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kimberly Keravuori, Regulatory and 
External Policy Program Manager, by email at 
[email protected], or by telephone at 301.837.3151.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We are updating addresses and contact 
information for Presidential libraries, records centers, and archival 
research facilities to reflect changes in operations, to add websites 
and email addresses and similar technology changes, to update URLs, and 
similar administrative changes. We are also updating information about 
public use of our facilities to better clarify provisions, including 
the kinds of events for which the public may request use of our spaces 
and the difference between removal and banning if it becomes necessary 
to restrict a person's use. We are streamlining and clarifying rules 
regarding behavior and removing outdated provisions regarding requests 
to use space for private events. These changes will affect all 
customers who do business with NARA. This rule is effective after 40 
days for good cause as permitted by the Administrative Procedure Act (5 
U.S.C. 553(d)(3)). We believe that a longer standard public comment 
period is unnecessary as this rule makes only minor changes to our 
agency facility regulations and does not change substantive 
requirements people must follow.

Regulatory Analysis

Review Under Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, 58 
FR 51735 (September 30, 1993), and Executive Order 13563, Improving 
Regulation and Regulation Review, 76 FR 23821 (January 18, 2011)

    The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has reviewed this 
rulemaking and determined it is not ``significant'' under section 3(f) 
of Executive Order 12866. It is not significant because it consists of 
administrative and minor revisions, involves agency organization and 
management, does not change substantive requirements, and imposes no 
costs on the public.

Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601, et seq.)

    This review requires an agency to prepare an initial regulatory 
flexibility analysis and publish it when the agency publishes the 
proposed rule. This requirement does not apply if the agency certifies 
that the rulemaking will not, if promulgated, have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities (5 U.S.C. 
603). We certify, after review and analysis, that this rulemaking will 
not have a significant adverse economic impact on small entities.

Review Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et 
seq.)

    This rulemaking does not impose additional information collection 
requirements on the public that are subject to the Paperwork Reduction 
Act. However, 36 CFR 1280 continues to include three associated 
information collections already approved by OMB: 3095-0024, request to 
use Presidential library spaces, 3095-0040, request to film, 
photograph, or videotape, and 3095-0043, request to use NARA spaces. 
Because we are removing several sections of this regulation and 
reorganizing the provisions to be more streamlined, we are submitting a 
non-substantive change request to OMB to change the regulatory section 
numbers referred to in the information collections accordingly.

Review Under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, 64 FR 43255 (August 4, 
1999)

    Review under Executive Order 13132 requires that agencies review 
regulations for Federalism effects on the institutional interest of 
states and local governments, and, if the effects are sufficiently 
substantial, prepare a Federal assessment to assist senior policy 
makers. This rulemaking will not have any effects on state and local 
governments within the meaning of the Executive Order. Therefore, no 
Federalism assessment is required.

Review Under Executive Order 13771, Reducing Regulation and Controlling 
Regulatory Costs, 82 FR 9339 (February 3, 2017)

    Review under E.O. 13771 seeks to reduce Federal regulations that 
impose private expenditures in order to comply with them, and to 
control those costs in any such regulations. OMB has reviewed this 
rulemaking and determined that it is exempt from E.O. 13771 
requirements. This rulemaking is exempt because it involves agency 
organization, management, or personnel, modifies an existing rule, and 
does not involve regulatory costs subject to the Executive Order.

Review Under the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (Sec. 202, Public Law 
104-4; 2 U.S.C. 1532)

    Review under the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act requires that 
agencies determine whether any Federal mandate in the rulemaking may 
result in state, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or 
the private sector, expending $100 million in any one year. NARA 
certifies that this rulemaking does not contain a Federal mandate that 
may result in such an expenditure, and this rulemaking is therefore not 
subject to this requirement.

Subpart A--Rules of Conduct on or in NARA Property and Facilities

General Information


Sec.  1280.1  NARA facilities and applicable rules of conduct.

    (a) NARA facilities. Some NARA facilities are located on property 
the United States owns or that is otherwise under the control of the 
Archivist of the United States (``NARA property''), other facilities 
are leased by NARA directly using authority delegated by the General 
Services Administration (GSA), and still others are located on property 
owned, leased by, or otherwise under GSA's control (``GSA property''), 
or owned and under the control of the Government Publishing Office 
(``GPO property'').
    (b) NARA property. You must comply with the rules in this part when 
you are on NARA property or using facilities located on NARA property.
    (1) The National Archives Building. The National Archives Building 
in Washington, DC, is NARA property and NARA's control includes:
    (i) The Pennsylvania Avenue NW, entrance between 7th and 9th 
Streets, including the area within the retaining walls on either side 
of the entrance, inclusive of the statues, and the steps and ramps 
leading up to the entrance of the building;
    (ii) On the 7th Street, 9th Street, and Constitution Avenue NW, 
sides of the building, all property between the National Archives 
Building and the curb line of the street, including the sidewalks, the 
statues facing Constitution Avenue, and the other grounds; the steps 
leading up from the Constitution Avenue sidewalk and the portico at the 
top of those steps; the general public's entrance to the National 
Archives Museum on Constitution Avenue (closer to 9th Street); and the 
Special Events entrance to the National Archives Museum on Constitution 
Avenue (closer to 7th Street).
    (iii) The National Park Service controls the areas on the 
Pennsylvania Avenue side of the National Archives Building that are not 
NARA property.
    (2) Other NARA facilities. The following NARA facilities are also 
located on NARA property: The National Archives at College Park, in 
College Park, MD; the Presidential libraries and museums listed in 36 
CFR 1253.3; and the National Archives at Atlanta in Morrow, Georgia, 
listed in 36 CFR 1253.5(a).
    (3) Leased NARA facilities. The following NARA facilities are 
located on private property leased by NARA: The Atlanta Federal Records 
Center in Ellenwood, GA; the National Archives at Riverside and the 
Riverside Federal Records Center at Perris, CA; the National Archives 
at Fort Worth and the Fort Worth Federal Records Center at Fort Worth, 
TX; and the National Personnel Records Center--Civilian Personnel 
Records in Valmeyer, IL. These Federal records centers are listed in 36 
CFR 1253.4 and archival facilities are listed in 36 CFR 1253.5.
    (c) GSA property. (1) The following NARA facilities are located on 
GSA property: All Federal records centers listed at 36 CFR 1253.4, 
except the Federal records centers listed in 36 CFR 1280.1(b)(3), and 
all archival research rooms and facilities listed at 36 CFR 1253.5, 
except the National Archives at Atlanta and the archival facilities 
listed in 36 CFR 1280.1(b)(3).
    (2) You must comply with the following rules when you are on or 
using Federal records center or archival research rooms and facilities 
located on GSA property and those facilities listed in 36 CFR 
1280.1(b)(3):
    (i) GSA's regulations, 41 CFR part 102-74, subpart C, Conduct on 
Federal Property, and subpart D, Occasional Use of Federal Buildings 
(if you are interested in using the public areas in a facility for an 
event); and
    (ii) NARA's regulations outlined in this part 1280. If a provision 
in this part conflicts with a GSA provision, comply with the GSA 
provision when on or using NARA facilities located on GSA property.
    (d) GPO property. (1) The following NARA facilities are located on 
GPO property: The Office of the Federal Register (OFR), the Office of 
Government Information Services (OGIS), and the Center for Legislative 
Archives.
    (2) In addition to NARA rules outlined in this part 1280, you must 
comply with GPO's rules for the use of its property when you are on or 
using NARA facilities located on GPO property (currently GPO Directive 
825.38A, Rules and Regulations Governing Buildings and Grounds). If a 
provision in this part 1280 conflicts with a GPO provision, comply with 
the GPO provision when on or using NARA facilities on GPO property.
    (e) NARA research room rules. If you are using records in a NARA 
research room in any NARA facility, you must also comply with the rules 
in 36 CFR part 1254. If you violate a rule or regulation in 36 CFR part 
1254, you are subject to the types of corrective action set forth in 
that part, including revocation of research privileges.
    (f) Violations. If you violate a rule or regulation in this part 
you are subject to, among other types of corrective action, removal and

    We may, at our discretion, inspect packages, briefcases, and other 
containers in the immediate possession of employees, contractors, and 
other people arriving on, working at, visiting, or departing from NARA 
property and facilities. 41 CFR 102-74, subpart C, authorizes GSA to 
conduct similar inspections at NARA facilities on GSA property. These 
inspection authorities are in addition to NARA's research room rules 
(see 36 CFR part 1254 and 36 CFR 1280.1(e)).


Sec.  1280.4  Children under the age of 14.

    We admit children under the age of 14 to NARA facilities only if 
they are accompanied by an adult who will supervise them at all times. 
The director of a NARA facility may authorize a lower age limit for 
unaccompanied children to meet special circumstances (e.g., students 
who have been given permission to conduct research without adult 
supervision).


Sec.  1280.6  Service animals.

    We allow service animals on or in NARA property and facilities in 
any area that the individual handling the service animal is otherwise 
entitled to

[[Page 26853]]

enter. A service animal is any dog individually trained to do work or 
perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. You 
may not bring any other animals onto or into NARA property and 
facilities, except for official purposes.


Sec.  1280.8  Driving on NARA property.

    When driving on NARA property, you must obey speed limits, posted 
signs, and other traffic laws, and park only in designated spaces. We 
reserve the right to tow, at the owner's expense, any vehicle that is 
parked illegally. If you must leave your vehicle illegally parked due 
to an emergency, you must notify the facility security guards as soon 
as possible. We may, at our discretion, deny any vehicle access to NARA 
property for public safety or security reasons.


Sec.  1280.12  Additional rules.

    (a) All facilities. NARA facilities and property may have 
additional posted rules that you must comply with. In addition, you 
must, at all times while in a NARA facility or on NARA property, comply 
with official signs and with the directions of the guards and NARA 
staff.
    (b) Presidential libraries. You may be required to check all of 
your parcels and luggage in areas designated by library staff when 
visiting the museums or the Presidential libraries.
    (c) GSA and GPO property. Visitors to NARA facilities that are 
located on GSA or GPO property must check for and follow the rules that 
apply to the facility they visit, as GSA and GPO may have additional or 
different rules from the rules in this Part.

tolerance policy. You may smoke and use alternative smoking devices 
only in marked smoking areas outside certain NARA facilities.

to:
    (1) Being removed from the property or facility (for up to seven 
calendar days) and possible law enforcement notification;

issue a written decision and notify the affected NARA properties or 
facilities.
    (d) Banning under this part includes automatic revocation of

at which time the person who was banned may submit an application for 
new privileges.


Sec.  1280.32  Appealing a ban from NARA facilities or property.

    (a) Within 30 calendar days after you receive notice that you have

another appeal from you within one year from the date of your last

purposes. You may not use any supplemental lighting devices while 
filming, photographing, or videotaping inside a NARA facility in the 
Washington, DC, area without the prior permission of the NARA Public 
Affairs Officer. If the Public Affairs Officer approves your use of 
artificial lighting in the Rotunda or other exhibit areas, we will use 
facsimiles in place of the Declaration of Independence, the 
Constitution, the Bill of Rights, or other documents. If we approve 
your use of high intensity lighting, we will cover or replace with 
facsimiles all other exhibited documents that fall within the 
boundaries of such illumination. You may not use any supplemental 
lighting devices at the Presidential libraries and the archival 
research room facilities without permission from a NARA representative 
at that facility.
    (b) While filming, photographing, or videotaping, you are liable 
for injuries to people or property that result from your activities on 
or in NARA property and facilities.
    (c) At all times while on or in NARA property and facilities, you 
must conduct your activities in accordance with all applicable 
regulations contained in this part.
    (d) Your filming, photographing, or videotaping activity may not 
impede people who are entering or exiting any NARA facility unless 
otherwise authorized by the facility's director, or by the NARA Public 
Affairs Officer for Washington, DC, area facilities.
    (e) You must be accompanied by a NARA staff member when filming, 
photographing, or videotaping the interior of any NARA facility.
    (f) We will approve your request to do press interviews of NARA 
personnel on or in NARA property and facilities only when such 
employees are being interviewed in connection with official business. 
Interviews with staff and researchers may take place only in areas 
designated by the NARA Public Affairs Officer for Washington, DC, area 
facilities, or by the appropriate NARA representative at other NARA 
facilities.
    (g) You may film and photograph documents only in those areas which 
the NARA Public Affairs staff designates in the National Archives 
Building, the National Archives at College Park, or the Washington 
National Records Center, or in those areas designated as appropriate by 
the staff liaison at other NARA facilities.
    (h) We will limit your film and photography sessions to two hours.
    (i) You may not state or imply that NARA approves of or will 
sponsor:
    (1) Your activities or views; or
    (2) The uses to which you put images depicting any NARA facility.

Subpart C--Additional Rules for Using Public Areas of NARA Property 
or Facilities


Sec.  1280.60  Permitting use of public areas.

    (a) The primary use for NARA property and facilities, including 
those areas open to the public, is conducting official NARA business. 
NARA's official business includes educational and public programs and 
other activities we conduct on our own or in conjunction with 
government organizations, the National Archives Foundation 
(``Foundation'') and Presidential library foundations, or other private 
organizations. NARA uses all of the public areas of NARA property and 
facilities in the course of conducting official business.
    (b) We may permit, under the conditions described in this subpart, 
Federal agencies, quasi-Federal agencies, and state, local, and tribal 
government organizations to occasionally use certain public areas for 
official activities (``government organization use'').
    (c) We may also permit occasional, non-official use of specified 
public areas for private group activities and events that relate to or 
further NARA's archival, records, or other interests. The authorities 
for such use are 44 U.S.C. 2112(e) (for Presidential libraries) and 44 
U.S.C. 2903(b) (for other NARA property and facilities).
    (1) Examples of private use that relate to or further NARA's 
archival, records, or other interests include, but are not limited to: 
Meetings and other business activities held by archival, historical, or 
other professional organizations with a connection to NARA's holdings 
or mission; activities or events that promote research in, or use or 
preservation of, NARA holdings; invitation-only screening of film or TV 
premieres when NARA holdings have been used in the production or when 
the screening otherwise promotes use of NARA holdings (e.g., 
documentary film premiere); and dinners, receptions, or other private 
group events where the connection to NARA is the location itself (e.g., 
The National Archives Building or a Presidential library) or the 
opportunity to view NARA exhibits. Private group events may include 
events of a personal or social nature, such as weddings and wedding 
receptions, and school-sponsored activities.
    (2) Each NARA facility with public use space determines whether and 
what kind of events of a personal nature the facility can support, 
given the size and configuration of available space, staff 
availability, and other logistical factors. We also reserve the right 
to limit the

[[Page 26856]]

number and size of personal celebrations, and to limit or prohibit 
activities as part of a private group event that pose a risk to the 
facility, property, people, or our holdings. If you are interested in 
holding a private group event at a NARA facility, contact that facility 
directly for more information. See 36 CFR part 1253 for facility 
listings and contact information.
    (3) We may charge fees for private group and government 
organization use of these public areas and the services related to such 
use. See Sec.  1280.68. NARA, the Foundation, or Presidential library 
foundations may collect the fees.


Sec.  1280.62  General rules when using public areas.

    In addition to the rules listed in subparts A and B of this part, 
the following rules apply to all government organization and private 
group use of NARA public areas:
    (a) You may not characterize your use of NARA property or 
facilities as an endorsement by NARA of your organization or its 
activities, or otherwise suggest an official relationship between NARA 
and your organization if such a relationship does not exist.
    (b) You may not charge or collect admission fees, or money for 
other purposes, at the event.
    (c) You may not use NARA property, facilities, or permission to use 
a NARA property or facility for any activities that involve:
    (1) Profit-making;
    (2) Advertising, promoting, or selling commercial enterprises, 
products, or services;
    (3) Partisan political activities;
    (4) Sectarian or other similar activities; or
    (5) Any use inconsistent with those authorized in this section.
    (d) You may not use NARA property or facilities if you or your 
organization or group engage in discriminatory practices proscribed by 
the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended.
    (e) You may not misrepresent your identity to the public or conduct 
any activities in a misleading or fraudulent manner.
    (f) You must ensure that no Government property is destroyed, 
displaced, or damaged during your use of NARA public areas. You must 
take prompt action to replace, return, restore, repair, or repay NARA 
for any damage caused to Government property during your use of NARA 
facilities or property, and the facility director may charge additional 
fees to recoup the cost of any damage that occurs due to your use of 
the property or facility.


Sec.  1280.64  Requesting to use our public areas.

    (a) This section provides a general description of the process that 
different NARA facilities use to review and respond to requests to use 
their public areas. You should contact a facility before submitting a 
formal request, to check on availability and to obtain any forms, 
procedures, or rules that are specific to that facility.
    (b) National Archives Building and the National Archives at College 
Park. (1) If you are interested in hosting an official governmental 
event or meeting at the National Archives Building, you should contact 
NARA Special Events by phone at 202.357.5164 or by email at 
[email protected]. If you are interested in hosting a private 
group event at the National Archives Building, you should contact the 
National Archives Foundation by phone at 202.357.5404, toll-free at 
844.723.2155, or by email at [email protected]. Additional 
information is in subpart D of this part and online at https://www.archives.gov/dc/host-an-event.
    (2) If you are interested in hosting an event or meeting at the 
National Archives at College Park, you should contact NARA Special 
Events by phone at 301.837.1504 or by email at 
[email protected]. Additional information is in subpart D of 
this part.
    (3) You will need to submit a written request at least 30 calendar 
days before the proposed date of your event. Your request will need to 
include such information as the name of your group and any other 
organization that is participating, point-of-contact information, the 
date and time you are requesting, number of attendees, type of event, 
description of the event, other arrangements you would like to include, 
and other information about the event to enable us to determine whether 
we can accommodate it. We may also request additional information. OMB 
control number 3095-0043 covers this information collection.
    (c) Presidential libraries and museums. (1) You should contact the 
Presidential library and museum where you wish to hold your event (see 
contact information in 36 CFR 1253.3).
    (2) Depending on what kind of event you want to host, you may be 
referred to the foundation that supports the library to make the event 
arrangements and to pay any event fees and costs that apply. Some 
Presidential libraries are located at shared-use facilities where their 
library foundations own certain areas and spaces used for private group 
events and operate those areas and spaces under their rules rather than 
the rules in this part 1280.
    (3) For events held in Presidential library areas or spaces that 
are considered NARA property, you will need to submit a written, signed 
request to the library you wish to use (see 36 CFR 1253.3 for the 
address) and complete NA Form 16011, Application for Use of Space in 
Presidential Libraries. OMB control number 3095-0024 covers this 
information collection.
    (d) Archival research facilities and Federal records centers 
(FRCs). (1) Most archival research facilities and the FRCs do not have 
any public use areas or spaces.
    (2) If you wish to request use of public areas at an archival 
research facility, you must submit a written, signed request to the 
director of the facility you wish to use (see 36 CFR 1253.5 for a list 
of addresses) at least 30 days before the proposed date of your event. 
GSA's rules for requesting use of the facility will also apply if the 
facility is located on GSA property (see 41 CFR part 102-74, subpart D, 
Occasional Use of Public Buildings).
    (3) Your request will need to include such information as the name 
of your group and any other organization that is participating, point-
of-contact information, the date and time you are requesting, number of 
attendees, type of event, description of the event, and other 
information about the event to enable us to determine whether we can 
accommodate it. We may also request additional information. OMB control 
number 3095-0043 covers this information collection.
    (e) NARA facilities located on GPO property. None of the NARA 
facilities that are located on GPO property have spaces available for 
public use.


Sec.  1280.66  How we handle requests to use public areas.

    (a) When you ask to use NARA property, we review your request to:
    (1) Ensure that it meets all of the provisions in this subpart and 
subpart D of this part;
    (2) Determine if the public area you have requested is available on 
the date and time you have requested;
    (3) Evaluate whether the requested space can accommodate your 
proposed use; and
    (4) Determine the fees and costs we will charge for the event.
    (b) When we have completed this review, we will notify you of the 
decision. We may ask for additional information before deciding whether 
or not to approve your event.
    (c) We reserve the right to review, reject, or require changes in 
any

[[Page 26857]]

material, activity, or caterer you intend to use for the event.


Sec.  1280.68  Fees for using public areas.

    (a) We are authorized to charge fees for occasional, non-official 
use of NARA public areas, as well as for services related to such use, 
including additional cleaning, security, and other staff services. We 
will either exercise this authority directly, or through the Foundation 
or an authorized Presidential library foundation or support 
organization.
    (b) Federal and quasi-Federal agencies, and state, local, and 
tribal governmental institutions using public space for official 
government functions pay fees for the costs of room rental, 
administrative fees, additional cleaning, security, and other staff 
services NARA provides.
    (c) You will be informed in advance and in writing of the total 
estimated cost associated with using the public area of interest. If we 
collect the fees directly, you will pay the National Archives Trust 
Fund. If the Foundation collects the fees, you will pay the National 
Archives Foundation. If a Presidential library foundation collects the 
fees, they will inform you where to submit the payment.


Sec.  1280.70  Additional rules that apply to approved events.

    (a) Once we approve your event, you must provide any support people 
you need to register guests, distribute approved literature, name tags, 
and other material.
    (b) We must approve in advance any item that you plan to distribute 
or display during your use of NARA property or facilities, or any 
notice or advertisement that refers, directly or indirectly, to NARA, 
the Foundation, a Presidential foundation or supporting organization, 
or the National Archives Trust Fund, or incorporates any of NARA's 
logos or seals (see 36 CFR 1200.2).
    (c) We must approve in advance any vendor or caterer who will work 
in NARA facilities. You must comply with all NARA requirements for the 
use of food and drink at your event.
    (d) You may not allow or consume food or drink in areas where 
original records or historical materials are displayed.
