Termination of Agriculture Board of Contract Appeals
The Department of Agriculture (USDA) is publishing amendments to the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) as a final rule. USDA amends its regulations to reflect the legal termination of the Agriculture Board of Contract Appeals (AGBCA) and the creation of a new consolidated Civilian Board of Contract Appeals (CBCA). Additionally, with respect to appeals heard by the AGBCA other than Contract Disputes Act appeals, the AGBCA transfers or eliminates certain appeal procedures as a result of the termination of the AGBCA. USDA eliminates the appeals of procurement suspension and debarment, as well as the appeals of export violation debarment determinations under the Forest Resources Conservation and Shortage Relief Act (16 U.S.C. 620 et seq.), and transfers jurisdiction to hear Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC) and Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards appeals to the new consolidated CBCA.
Common Crop Insurance Regulations; Coverage Enhancement Option
The Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC) proposes to add to 7 CFR part 457 a new Sec. 457.172 Coverage Enhancement Option (CEO) that provides additional coverage to applicable crop provisions. The CEO will be used in conjunction with the Common Crop Insurance Policy Basic Provisions, which contain standard terms and conditions common to most crops and with the crop provisions for which it is approved. At this time, RMA has no plans to expand CEO to crops other than Texas Citrus Trees. The intended effect of this action is to convert the pilot CEO to a permanent option for the 2008 and subsequent crop years.
