Peace Corps 2006 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Peace Corps Implementation of OMB Guidance on Nonprocurement Debarment and Suspension
Document Number: 06-9369
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-11-22
Agency: Peace Corps, Agencies and Commissions
The Peace Corps is establishing a new Part 3700 in 2 CFR that adopts the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB's) guidance in 2 CFR Part 180, as supplemented by this new part, as Peace Corps policies and procedures for nonprocurement debarment and suspension. The Peace Corps is also removing 22 CFR Part 310, the part containing the Peace Corps implementation of the government-wide common rule on nonprocurement debarment and suspension. 2 CFR Part 3700 would serve the same purpose as the common rule in a simpler way. These changes constitute an administrative simplification that would make no substantive change in Peace Corps policy or procedures for nonprocurement debarment and suspension.

Five (5) comments were received in response to the Peace Corps' Federal Register Notice that was published January 12, 2006, Volume 71, No. 8, 60 days. These comments were evaluated. Comments regarding the number of available options for career field(s) suggested that the original number of options was too high and made the form difficult to read. The form was revised to include a fewer number of options and the font size was increased. Comments regarding the number of entries from a single respondent suggested that respondents were listed too many times. The form was revised to limit the number of entries allowed from each respondent. Comments regarding the title of career field options suggested that there was repetition in the titles and that some titles were confusing. The form was revised to include standard occupational titles. Comments regarding the number of pages in the print publication suggested that the book was too large and difficult to manage. The directory will now only be available in electronic form. A copy of the information collection may be obtained from Ms. Tamara Webb, Peace Corps, Office of Domestic Programs, Returned Volunteer Services, 1111 20th Street, NW., Room 2132, Washington, DC 20526.
