General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR); Update to OMB Approval Table for Information Collections, 21663-21664 [2021-08422]

DATES: khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Joyce Bernstein, Media Bureau, at (202) 418–1647 or Joyce.Bernstein@fcc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The proposed rule was published at 86 FR 12162 on March 2, 2021. Scripps filed comments in support of the petition reaffirming its commitment to applying for channel 26. No other parties filed comments. The Bureau believes the public interest would be served by the substitution and will permit KRIS–TV to better serve its viewers, who have experienced reception problems with VHF channel 13. While there is a small terrain limited predicted loss area when comparing the licensed channel 13 and the proposed channel 26 facilities, all but 15 people living within the predicted loss area will continue to be well served, a number which the Commission has recognized as de minimis. Finally, the timing of the channel change is important because in April 2020, high winds caused the tower supporting the KRIS–TV antenna to collapse, taking the station silent, and Scripps would prefer to build out a new UHF facility which can significantly improve the off-air reception of KRIS– TV, rather than replace the VHF facility. This is a synopsis of the Commission’s Report and Order, MB Docket No. 21–59; RM–11883; DA 21– 396, adopted April 4, 2021, and released April 4, 2021.

This document does not contain information collection requirements subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public Law 104–13. In addition, therefore, it does not contain any proposed information collection burden ‘‘for small business concerns with fewer than 25 employees,’’ pursuant to the Small Business Paperwork Relief Act of 2002, Public Law 107–198, see 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(4). Provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980, 5 U.S.C. 601– 612, do not apply to this proceeding. The Commission will send a copy of this Report and Order in a report to be sent to Congress and the Government Accountability Office pursuant to the Congressional review Act, see 5 U.S.C. 801(a)(1)(A).

DATES: Final Rule * 21663 Sfmt 4700 The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980 (44 U.S.C. 35, et seq.) imposes a requirement on Federal agencies to obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) before collecting information from 10 or more members of the public. The General Services Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) at 501.106 includes a table that identifies all OMB approved control numbers for GSA and the FAR that are applicable to GSA acquisition requirements. As part of the regulatory review process, GSA realized that the table required updates and corrections. GSA is amending the GSAR to update this table at 501.106 so the information included is correct.

Section 121 authorizes GSA to issue regulations, including the GSAR, to control the relationship between GSA and contractors. III. Discussion and Analysis In the process of updating the table at 501.106, several things had to be removed. There were seven instances in the table where the GSAR reference no longer existed or the OMB control number referenced had expired. Therefore, seven rows will be removed from the table. Also, in two instances the GSAR reference in the left column was edited to reflect the correct location. For example, removing the paragraph citation to change the GSAR reference from 509.105(a) to 509.105. Next, several missing items had to be added to the table. There were six instances where approved information collections for existing GSAR provisions were not included in the table. This necessitated the addition of six new rows. Also, there were two instances where an existing GSAR reference applied to more than one information collection, but the additional information collections were missing from the table. These two missing OMB control numbers were added to the applicable row in the table. Lastly, the format of the table was edited to standardize the information. In two places the information collections for a given GSAR reference were listed in multiple rows. These information collections were combined into one row for the GSAR reference to match the rest of the table. Additionally, in one place the word ‘‘and’’ was taken out of a list of control numbers to standardize the format of the table. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES IV. Executive Orders 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 rule has been reviewed and determined by OMB not to be a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not subject to review under section 6(b) of E.O. 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993.

A major rule cannot take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. This rule has been reviewed and determined by OMB not to be a ‘‘major rule’’ under 5 U.S.C. 804(2). VI. Regulatory Flexibility Act The General Services Administration certifies that this direct final rule will not 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., because this rule is updating references for existing information collections that are not changed.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980 (44 U.S.C. 35, et seq.) imposes 
a requirement on Federal agencies to obtain approval from the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) before collecting information from 10 or 
more members of the public. The General Services Acquisition Regulation 
(GSAR) at 501.106 includes a table that identifies all OMB approved 
control numbers for GSA and the FAR that are applicable to GSA 
acquisition requirements. As part of the regulatory review process, GSA 
realized that the table required updates and corrections. GSA is 
amending the GSAR to update this table at 501.106 so the information 
included is correct.

[[Page 21664]]

II. Authority for This Rulemaking

    Title 40 of the United States Code (U.S.C.) Section 121 authorizes 
GSA to issue regulations, including the GSAR, to control the 
relationship between GSA and contractors.

III. Discussion and Analysis

    In the process of updating the table at 501.106, several things had 
to be removed. There were seven instances in the table where the GSAR 
reference no longer existed or the OMB control number referenced had 
expired. Therefore, seven rows will be removed from the table. Also, in 
two instances the GSAR reference in the left column was edited to 
reflect the correct location. For example, removing the paragraph 
citation to change the GSAR reference from 509.105(a) to 509.105.
    Next, several missing items had to be added to the table. There 
were six instances where approved information collections for existing 
GSAR provisions were not included in the table. This necessitated the 
addition of six new rows. Also, there were two instances where an 
existing GSAR reference applied to more than one information 
collection, but the additional information collections were missing 
from the table. These two missing OMB control numbers were added to the 
applicable row in the table.
    Lastly, the format of the table was edited to standardize the 
information. In two places the information collections for a given GSAR 
reference were listed in multiple rows. These information collections 
were combined into one row for the GSAR reference to match the rest of 
the table. Additionally, in one place the word ``and'' was taken out of 
a list of control numbers to standardize the format of the table.

IV. Executive Orders 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 rule has been reviewed and determined by OMB not to be a 
significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not subject to review 
under section 6(b) of E.O. 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, dated 
September 30, 1993.

V. Congressional Review Act

    The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as amended by 
the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, 
generally provides that before a ``major rule'' may take effect, the 
agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes 
a copy of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the 
Comptroller General of the United States. A major rule cannot take 
effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. 
This rule has been reviewed and determined by OMB not to be a ``major 
rule'' under 5 U.S.C. 804(2).

VI. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The General Services Administration certifies that this direct 
final rule will not 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., because this rule is updating 
references for existing information collections that are not changed.

VII. 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 burdens previously approved by 
the Office of Management and Budget.
