Paroling, Recommitting, and Supervising Federal Prisoners: Prisoners Serving Sentences Under the United States and District of Columbia Codes
The Parole Commission's regulation regarding the Commission's transfer treaty function describes the procedures and policies for making release date and supervised release term decisions for prisoners transferred under treaty to the custody of the United States for service of the remainder of their foreign sentences. The Commission is amending this regulation to: add a policy statement that the Commission, like a federal district judge in imposing a sentence, uses the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines as advisory guidelines in making decisions for a transfer treaty prisoner; and eliminate the requirement that a certified court reporter record a transfer treaty hearing.
Standards for the Administrative Collection of Claims
The Federal Claims Collection Standards (FCCS), provide governmentwide debt collection procedures and policies for agencies collecting non-tax debts owed to the United States. This rule revises part 901, which specifies the order in which a federal agency is required to apply a partial or installment payment to the various components of a delinquent, non-tax debt owed to the United States. Under the current rule, payments are required to be applied first to penalties, then to administrative costs, then to interest, and last to principal. As revised, the rule would require agencies to apply payments first to administrative costs that are paid out of amounts collected from the debtor (referred to as ``contingency fees'') when such costs are added to the debt, second to penalties, third to administrative costs other than contingency fees, fourth to interest, and last to principal. Additionally, the term ``administrative charges'' is being replaced with ``administrative costs'' for consistency and clarity.
