FAIR Act Inventory

The “Federal Activities Inventory Reform Act of 1998” (FAIR Act) directs Federal agencies to submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) an inventory of all their commercial activities that are performed by Federal employees. OMB reviews each agency’s Commercial Activities Inventory and consults with the agency regarding its content. Upon the completion of this review and consultation, the agency is required to transmit a copy of the inventory to Congress and make it available to the public on the Agency website. The information presented below is the Department of Commerce’s FAIR Act Report for Fiscal Year (FY) 2008. FAIR Act Inventories for FYs 2009 through 2011 will be posted to this website once the Department has received OMB approval. Therefore, the 2008 Inventory is the most recent that can be made available.
