Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Touhy Regulations
This final rule makes a clarifying amendment to the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) Touhy regulations. As already provided in the Touhy regulations of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), of which FEMA is a component, FEMA is adding language to its regulations clarifying that DHS Touhy regulations are applicable to any subject matter not already covered by FEMA's regulations, including but not limited to demands or requests directed to current or former FEMA contractors. This action ensures consistency within DHS with a uniform approach and administration of Touhy regulations, and provides additional clarification with respect to agency organization and practice. This regulation will have no substantive effect on the regulated public.
