Federal Management Regulation; Real Property Policies Update; Technical Amendment
This document amends the Federal Management Regulation (FMR) to extend the implementation date of the Real Property Policies section entitled ``What standards must facilities subject to the Architectural Barriers Act meet?,'' which was published in the Federal Register, at 70 FR 67846, on November 8, 2005. The implementation date of the section previously was extended to August 7, 2006, but only with respect to leasing actions. The implementation date of the section, currently August 7, 2006, is hereby further extended to February 6, 2007, but only for leasing actions (other than those where the Government expressly requires new construction to meet its needs) where solicitations have not been issued by February 6, 2007. The May 8, 2006, implementation date remains unchanged with respect to Federal construction or alteration projects. The August 7, 2006, implementation date remains unchanged with respect to lease projects where new construction is required by the Government to meet its needs. Except as expressly modified by this final rule, all other terms and conditions of the Architectural Barriers Act standards remain in full force and effect.
