Public Availability of Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 Agency Inventories Under the Federal Activities Inventory Reform (FAIR) Act
The Federal Activities Inventory Reform (FAIR) Act, Public Law 105-270, requires covered agencies to develop an annual inventory of activities performed by their employees that are not inherently governmental functions. In addition, OMB Circular A-76, Performance of Commercial Activities, requires covered agencies to develop an annual inventory of activities performed by their employees that are inherently governmental functions. These inventories help the agencies gain a better understanding of how labor is being used to carry out their mission. After OMB review, the agencies are required to make their list of activities available to the public. In accordance with the FAIR Act, OMB is publishing this notice to announce the availability of the inventories for Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 from the agencies listed below. These inventories include both activities that are not inherently governmental and activities that are inherently governmental. If an agency has not yet posted its inventory on its website, the agency's point of contact should be able to provide assistance. As provided in the FAIR Act, interested parties who disagree with the agency's initial judgment may challenge the inclusion or the omission of an activity on the list of activities that are not inherently governmental within 30 working days of this Notice and, if not satisfied with this review, may appeal to a higher level within the agency.
The Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board will conduct a public forum entitled ``Countering Terrorism while Protecting Privacy and Civil Liberties: Where do We Stand in 2019.'' During the forum, Board Members will hear from governmental and non-governmental experts on privacy and civil liberties and on efforts to protect the nation against terrorism. Members of the public in attendance will have an opportunity to ask questions of the expert presenters.
