ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is publishing its semiannual agenda of upcoming activities for Federal regulations, OMB Guidance, Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) Policy Letters, and Cost Accounting Standards (CAS) Board Cost Accounting Standards. SUMMARY: OMB Guidance and OFPP Policy Letters are published in accordance with OMB’s internal procedures for implementing Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735 (Oct. 4, 1993)). OMB policy guidelines are issued under authority derived from several sources, including: Subtitles I, II, and V of title 31, U.S. Code; Executive Order 11541; and other specific authority as cited. OMB Guidance and OFPP Policy Letters communicate guidance and instructions of a continuing nature to executive branch agencies. As such, most OMB Guidance and OFPP Policy Letters are not regulations. Nonetheless, because these issuances are typically of interest to the public, they are generally published in the Federal Register at both the proposed (for public comment) and final stages. For this reason, they are presented below in the standard format of ‘‘pre-rule,’’ ‘‘proposed rule,’’ and ‘‘final rule’’ stages. CASB Cost Accounting Standards are issued under authority derived from 41 U.S.C. 1501 et seq. Cost Accounting Standards are rules governing the measurement, assignment, and allocation of costs to contracts entered into with the United States Government. For purposes of this agenda, we have excluded directives that outline procedures to be followed in connection with the President’s budget and legislative programs, as well as directives that affect only the internal functions, management, or personnel of Federal agencies.

SUMMARY: The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is publishing its 
semiannual agenda of upcoming activities for Federal regulations, OMB 
Guidance, Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) Policy Letters, 
and Cost Accounting Standards (CAS) Board Cost Accounting Standards.
    OMB Guidance and OFPP Policy Letters are published in accordance 
with OMB's internal procedures for implementing Executive Order 12866 
(58 FR 51735 (Oct. 4, 1993)). OMB policy guidelines are issued under 
authority derived from several sources, including: Subtitles I, II, and 
V of title 31, U.S. Code; Executive Order 11541; and other specific 
authority as cited. OMB Guidance and OFPP Policy Letters communicate 
guidance and instructions of a continuing nature to executive branch 
agencies. As such, most OMB Guidance and OFPP Policy Letters are not 
regulations. Nonetheless, because these issuances are typically of 
interest to the public, they are generally published in the Federal 
Register at both the proposed (for public comment) and final stages. 
For this reason, they are presented below in the standard format of 
``pre-rule,'' ``proposed rule,'' and ``final rule'' stages.
    CASB Cost Accounting Standards are issued under authority derived 
from 41 U.S.C. 1501 et seq. Cost Accounting Standards are rules 
governing the measurement, assignment, and allocation of costs to 
contracts entered into with the United States Government.
    For purposes of this agenda, we have excluded directives that 
outline procedures to be followed in connection with the President's 
budget and legislative programs, as well as directives that affect only 
the internal functions, management, or personnel of Federal agencies.
