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/fair-index.html.

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.
