This notice is to inform you that the Principles and Requirements, one key component of the Principles and Guidelines, are finalized and available at www.whitehouse.gov/administration/eop/ceq/initiatives/ PandG. The Principles and Requirements were developed through a collaborative interagency process that promoted the open exchange of information and perspectives. The process has engaged the public through formal public review and workshops, and included an external peer review by the National Academies of Science as required by the Water Resources Development Act of 2007. Modernized Principles and Guidelines will improve Federal government decision making related to investment in water resource projects and, thus, improve how our country plans for infrastructure projects.

Request of the U.S. Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator for Public Comments: Legislative Review Related to Enforcement Against Economic Espionage and Trade Secret Theft
Document Number: 2013-06226
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-03-19
Agency: Management and Budget Office, Executive Office of the President
The theft of trade secrets from U.S. corporations can impact national security, undermine U.S. global competitiveness, diminish U.S. export prospects, and put American jobs at risk. Trade secrets play a crucial role in maintaining America's global competitiveness. The Administration will continue to act vigorously to combat the theft of American trade secrets that could be used by foreign companies or foreign governments to gain an unfair commercial advantage over U.S. companies. We need to ensure that our laws are as effective as possible. Therefore, the Administration is reviewing applicable Federal law related to enforcement against economic espionage and trade secret theft. This review is pursuant to the Administration Strategy on Mitigating the Theft of U.S. Trade Secrets issued on February 20, 2013. The strategy is available at: http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/ files/omb/IPEC/admin_strategy_on_mitigating_the_theft_of_u.s. _ trade_secrets.pdf http:/www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/omb/ IPEC/admin_strategy_on_mitigating_the_theft_of_u.s._trade_ secrets.pdf. A related OMB blog post is available at: http://www.whitehouse.gov/ blog/2013/02/19/launch-administration-s-strategy-mitigate-the ft-us- trade-secrets. And video of the rollout event is available at: http:// www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwgYahyQ754&feature=youtu.be. In the strategy, the U.S. Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator (IPEC) committed to a review of existing laws related to the enforcement of trade secrets to determine if legislative changes are needed to enhance enforcement. IPEC invites public input and participation in shaping the Administration's review. Specifically, we are requesting any recommendations for legislative changes that would enhance enforcement against, or reduce the risk of, the misappropriation of trade secrets for the benefit of foreign competitors or foreign governments.

Agency: Management and Budget Office, Executive Office of the President
The Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) in the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) seeks input from the public on the practice of comparing the relative cost of performance by Federal employees versus contract performance in order to identify the most cost-effective source.

To deliver on President Obama's promise of a 21st-Century government that is more efficient, transparent, and creative, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is seeking to adjust the Federal government's partnership with non-Federal stakeholders to best achieve program outcomes while we ensure the financial integrity of the dollars we spend. The goal of this effort is to transform our Federal financial assistance framework so that it meets a higher standard of performance on behalf of the American people. OMB proposes these reforms to the guidance for Federal policies relating to grants in order to ensure that Federal grants meet the high standards of a 21st-Century government. Federal grant-making must be streamlined to make the most of taxpayer dollars and ensure financial integrity while delivering the right program outcomes. This proposal provides this opportunity for the Federal government and its partners: state, local, tribal governments, institutions of higher education, and nonprofit organizations, to rethink and reform the rules that govern our stewardship of Federal dollars.
