Telecommunications Services Inside Wiring Customer Premises Equipment, Implementation of the Cable Television Consumer Protection and Competition Act of 1992: Cable Home Wiring
In this document, the Commission eliminates barriers to competitive entry in multiple dwelling units (MDUs) and in multiunit premises, when a new entrant seeks to compete against an incumbent provider. The Commission concluded that cutting and repairing sheet rock adds significantly to the physical difficulty and cost of wiring an MDU. In this document, the Commission again concludes that cable wiring located behind sheet rock qualifies as physically inaccessible under the Commission's rules for purposes of determining the demarcation point between home wiring and home run wiring. This ruling will facilitate competition in video distribution markets by clarifying the circumstances under which the existing cable home run wiring in MDUs can be made available to alternative video service providers.
Summary of Commission Practice Relating to Administrative Protective Orders
Since February 1991, the U.S. International Trade Commission (``Commission'') has issued an annual report on the status of its practice with respect to violations of its administrative protective orders (``APOs'') in investigations under Title VII of the Tariff Act of 1930 in response to a direction contained in the Conference Report to the Customs and Trade Act of 1990. Over time, the Commission has added to its report discussions of APO breaches in Commission proceedings other than under Title VII and violations of the Commission's rules including the rule on bracketing business proprietary information (``BPI'') (the ``24-hour rule''), 19 CFR 207.3(c). This notice provides a summary of investigations completed during calendar year 2006 of breaches in proceedings under Title VII. In 2006, there were no completed investigations of breaches in proceedings other than Title VII. The Commission intends that this report inform representatives of parties to Commission proceedings as to some specific types of APO breaches encountered by the Commission and the corresponding types of actions the Commission has taken.

Renewal of the Small Business Advisory Committee
Under the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act of 1972, (5 U.S.C. Appendix, as amended), the Sunshine in the Government Act of 1976 (5 U.S.C. 552b, as amended), and 41 CFR 102-3.65, the U.S. General Services Administration gives notice that it intends to renew the Small Business Advisory Committee (SBAC), as a discretionary Federal advisory committee. The Office of Small Business Utilization (OSBU) has responsibility for overseeing the General Services Administration's (GSA) best efforts to achieve the small business procurement goals set by the Small Business Administration (SBA). Several procurement preference program goals (HUBZone, Service-Disabled Veteran, Women-Owned) have proven to be difficult for GSA and the Federal government as a whole to reach. Other procurement issues such as subcontracting, size standards, and availability of small manufacturers, impact the government beyond procurement goals. As the Federal government's primary contracting agency, GSA's procurement practices and policies to a large extent affect all other Federal agencies. The GSA Small Business Advisory Committee (SBAC) was established by the OSBU to solicit the ideas and experience of association executives and small business owners in the hopes that their recommendations would serve to make the GSA small business program more effective in the future, and in turn, the entire Federal government's program. Committee members will represent a cross-section of various socio- economic groups and chambers of commerce. One member will be appointed from a chamber of commerce from each of the following socio-economic groups: African American, Asian American / Pacific Islander, Hispanic, Native American / Alaska Native, Veteran / Service-Disabled Veteran, and Women-owned businesses. Additional members may be selected based on their expertise in government contracting, doing business with the Federal government, and small business knowledge in general.
