INTRODUCTION TO THE REGULATORY PLAN AND THE UNIFIED AGENDA OF FEDERAL 
REGULATIONS

About the Regulatory Plan

    The Regulatory Plan serves as a defining statement of the 
Administration's regulatory policies and priorities. The Plan contains 
descriptions of the agency's most important significant regulatory 
actions.

    E.O. 12866 directs that an agency's regulatory plan should be 
published as part of the Unified Agenda of Federal Regulations (Unified 
Agenda) and contain two sections: (1) a narrative statement of its 
regulatory priorities; and (2) a description of the most important 
significant regulatory actions that the agency reasonably expects to 
issue in proposed or final form during the upcoming fiscal year.

    All agency plans appear at the beginning of this joint publication. 
They are followed by each agency's section of the Unified Agenda and 
then the indexes to the Plan and Agenda entries.

About the Unified Agenda

    The Regulatory Information Service Center (the Center) compiles the 
Unified Agenda of Federal Regulations for the Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The Center 
provides information about Federal regulatory activity to the President 
and his Executive Office, the Congress, agency managers, and the 
public.

    The Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs is responsible for 
overseeing the Federal Government's regulatory, paperwork, and 
information resource management activities, including implementation of 
E.O. 12866.

    The Unified Agenda provides uniform reporting of data on regulatory 
activities under development throughout the Federal Government. This 
edition of the Unified Agenda includes 63 regulatory agendas from all 
Federal departments, agencies, and commissions that publish agendas. 
Agencies of the United States Congress are not included. The Merit 
Systems Protection Board, the National Capital Planning Commission, and 
the Office of Special Counsel have published regulatory agendas in the 
past but have nothing to report for this edition.

    The regulatory activities included in the agency agendas are those 
currently planned for the next 12 months. The agendas do not include 
regulations that were excluded under E.O. 12866, such as those 
concerning military or foreign affairs functions and regulations 
related to agency organization, management, or personnel matters.

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601) requires that 
agencies publish regulatory agendas identifying those rules that may 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities. Agencies meet that requirement by including the information 
in their submissions for this publication.

    In addition, Executive Order 12875 entitled ``Enhancing the 
Intergovernmental Partnership'' (October 26, 1993; 58 FR 58093) directs 
agencies to reduce the imposition of unfunded mandates upon State, 
local, and tribal governments. The Order directs agencies that are 
proposing to impose nonstatutory unfunded mandates to consult with 
affected governmental officials and document their concerns, report 
those concerns to the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, 
and explain the agency's position supporting the continuing need to 
issue the regulation in light of those concerns. As part of this 
effort, agencies include in their submissions information on whether 
their regulatory actions may have an effect on the various levels of 
government.

    The Unified Agenda also helps fulfill the statutory requirement 
that the Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) publish a 
Procurement Regulatory Activity Report as required by the Office of 
Federal Procurement Policy Act Amendments of 1988 (102 Stat. 4055; 41 
U.S.C. 402). In their submissions, agencies indicate which regulatory 
actions are procurement-related, as well as whether or not there is a 
statutory requirement or a paperwork burden associated with the 
procurement-related actions. Information that agencies publish in the 
Plan and the Unified Agenda is used by OFPP to produce its report.

    The Plan and the Unified Agenda are produced through a computer 
system designed and maintained by the Center with the advice and 
assistance of the Government Printing Office. The system was designed 
to save agencies time and money by automating the preparation and 
printing of their materials in a uniform format, as well as the tables 
of contents and indexes for the publication. In order to further 
facilitate producing this publication, many agencies currently use 
computer terminals at their offices to enter information into the 
Center's computer system.

    All Plan and Agenda entries contain uniform data elements, which 
are described below. Agencies may also include any additional 
information they consider important.

    Congress generally authorizes a single Federal agency to implement, 
through regulation, a specific policy objective. Sometimes, however, a 
statute may require that several agencies issue regulations to 
accomplish the objective. In such cases, the agencies, working with a 
central coordinator, jointly publish the documents issued in the course 
of the rulemaking proceeding. These proceedings are referred to as 
Governmentwide common rules.

    In this edition of the Unified Agenda, four Governmentwide common 
rules are reported by the agencies participating in their development. 
They are:

<bullet> Debarment and Suspension
<bullet> New Restrictions on Lobbying
<bullet> Uniform Administrative Requirements for Grants and Cooperative 
    Agreements to State and Local Governments
<bullet> Uniform Administrative Requirements for Grants and Cooperative 
    Agreements to State and Local Governments (Thresholds)

Agencies participating in the development of these common rules have 
reported them in their individual sections of the Unified Agenda.

    Regulatory agendas have been required by Executive orders since 
1978. The Unified Agenda has been published in April and October of 
each year since 1983. This is the first edition to include the 
Regulatory Plan. The Center welcomes your comments on this edition and 
suggestions for improving future ones.

How To Use the Regulatory Plan and the Unified Agenda

    Agency regulatory plans begin with a Statement of Regulatory 
Priorities that is followed by descriptions of the agency's most 
important significant regulatory actions. Each agency introduces its 
part of the Unified Agenda with a preamble providing information 
specific to that part.

    Each agency agenda appears as a separate part in this edition of 
the Federal Register. Each section of the Plan and each part of the 
Unified Agenda is organized alphabetically in four groups: Cabinet 
departments, other executive agencies, joint authorities (Agenda only), 
and independent regulatory agencies. Departments are divided into 
agencies, which may in turn be divided into subagencies.

    In both the Regulatory Plan and the Unified Agenda, each agency 
lists its rules in groups by rulemaking stage:

    1. Prerule Stage--actions agencies will undertake in the next 12 
months to determine whether or how to initiate rulemaking. Such actions 
occur prior to a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and may include Advance 
Notices of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRMs) and reviews of existing 
regulations.

    2. Proposed Rule Stage--actions for which agencies plan to publish 
a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) as the next step in their 
rulemaking process or for which the closing date of the NPRM Comment 
Period is the next step.
