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.

    Published proposed rules may be reviewed in their entirety at 
the Government's rulemaking website at http://www.regulations.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Hada Flowers, Supervisor, Regulatory 
Secretariat Branch, Room 4041, 1800 F Street, NW., Washington, DC

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.acquisition.gov/far.

Acquisition Regulations Council (Councils) are amending the Federal 
Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to implement revisions to the Small 
Business Administration's HUBZone Program as a result of revisions to 
the Small Business Administration's regulations. This was not a 
significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not subject to review

Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is not a major rule under 5 
U.S.C. 804.

REPORTING PROCEDURES

Legal Authority: 40 USC 121(c); 10 USC ch 137; 42 USC 2473(c)

Abstract: The Civilian Agency Acquisition Council and the Defense 
Acquisition Regulations Council (Councils) are issuing an interim rule 
amending the FAR to revise three subparagraphs and add one subparagraph 
to the clause at FAR 52.204-11. This interim rule does not require 
renegotiation of existing Recovery Act contracts that include the 
clause dated March 2009 (published at 74 FR 14639). This change will 
require first-tier subcontractors with Recovery Act funded awards of 
$25,000 or more, to report jobs information to the prime contractor for 
reporting into FederalReporting.gov. It also will require the prime 
contractor to submit its first report on or before the 10th day after 
the end of the calendar quarter in which the prime contractor received 
the award, and quarterly thereafter.
This is a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was subject to 
review under section 6(b) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning 
and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is not a major rule 
under 5 U.S.C. 804.

COMPENSATION AND FIRST-TIER SUBCONTRACT AWARDS

Legal Authority: 40 USC 121(c); 10 USC ch 137; 42 USC 2473(c)

Abstract: The Civilian Agency Acquisition Council and the Defense 
Acquisition Regulations Council (the Councils) have agreed to issue an 
interim rule to amend the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to 
implement section 2 of the Federal Funding Accountability and 
Transparency Act of 2006 (Pub. L. No. 109-282), as amended by section 
6202 of Public Law 110-252, which requires the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) to establish a free, public, website containing full 
disclosure of all Federal contract award information. This rule will 
require contractors to report executive compensation and first-tier 
subcontractor awards on contracts expected to be $25,000 or more, 
except classified contracts, and contracts with individuals. This is a 
significant regulatory action and, therefore, was subject to review 
under section 6(b) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and 
Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is not a major rule under 5 
U.S.C. 804.

Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to ensure that the FAR reflects the Small 
Business Administration's (SBA) interpretation of the Small Business 
Act and SBA regulations with regard to the relationship among various 
small business programs.
This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not 
subject to review under section 6(b) of Executive Order 12866, 
Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993. The rule is 
not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804.
