SUMMARY: This agenda provides summary descriptions of regulations being 
developed by the Civilian Agency Acquisition Council and the Defense 
Acquisition Regulations Council in compliance with Executive Order 
12866 ``Regulatory Planning and Review.'' This agenda is being 
published to allow interested persons an opportunity to participate in 
the rulemaking process.

     The Regulatory and Federal Assistance Publication Division has 
attempted to list all regulations pending at the time of 
publication, except for minor and routine or repetitive actions; 
however, unanticipated requirements may result in the issuance of 
regulations that are not included in this agenda. There is no legal 
significance to the omission of an item from this listing. Also, 
the dates shown for the steps of each action are estimated and are 
not commitments to act on or by the dates shown.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Laurie Duarte, Regulatory and 
Federal Assistance Publication Division, Room 4035, GS Building, 
Washington, DC 20405, (202) 501-4755.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DoD, GSA, and NASA, under their several 
statutory authorities, jointly issue and maintain the FAR through 
periodic issuance of changes published in the Federal Register and 
produced electronically as Federal Acquisition Circulars (FACs).

     The electronic version of the FAR, including changes, can be 
accessed on the FAR website at http://www.arnet.gov/FAR.
