Processing of Monetary Claims
Document Number: 2017-13421
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-06-29
Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Agencies and Commissions
This direct final rule makes changes to comply with statutory modifications increasing NASA's approval authority for certain actions from $20,000 to $100,000 and makes nonsubstantive changes to clarify the existing notification and review procedures. Pursuant to statutory amendments, NASA's authority to approve certain claims has increased from $20,000 to $100,000. NASA is amending its implementing regulation accordingly. Prior to this statutory change, amounts over $20,000 had to be forwarded to officials within the Department of Justice for approval. The additional changes to procedures were made to comply with ``plain wording'' criteria and to incorporate debt collection procedural changes implemented under the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996. No substantive changes were made to existing NASA provisions for notice and review of claims or indebtedness. The revision to this rule is part of NASA's retrospective plan under Executive Order (E.O.) 13563 completed in August 2011.
