SYNOPSIS: OMB is announcing that the Commercial Activities Inventories required to be compiled by Public Law 105-270, Federal Activities Inventory Reform Act of 1998 (FAIR Act), are now available to the public from several federal agencies. This is the third and final release of Year 2000 Commercial Activities Inventories.

EDITOR'S NOTE: For more on the first release of Year 2000 Commercial Activities Inventories, see the October 3, 2000, FEDERAL CONTRACTS DISPATCH "Office of Management and Budget; Availability of Year 2000 Agency Inventories Under the Federal Activities Inventory Reform Act of 1998."

The Office of Federal Procurement Policy, which is part of OMB, has prepared a summary FAIR Act User's Guide and is making it available on its Internet site at http://www.whitehouse.gov/OMB/procurement/index.html. This User's Guide is intended to help interested parties review the Year 2000 FAIR Act inventories, and the User's Guide also includes the web-site addresses to access agency inventories.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: Section 2 of the FAIR Act requires that each agency submit a list of government activities it is performing which are not "inherently governmental functions", and that OMB publish an announcement of public availability of these lists, called "Commercial Activities Inventories," upon completion of its review of the agencies' inventory submissions. OMB has completed its review of the inventories submitted by the following agencies:
