„Publication of proposed regulations,“ 41 U.S.C. 1707, is the law applicable to the publication of the Federal Acquisition Regulation. Point (a)(1) of the Statute provides that a policy, regulation, procedure or form of procurement (including an amendment or amendment thereto) is to be published for public notice where it relates to the use of fine funds and has a significant effect beyond the Agency`s internal operational procedures, which issue the policy, the regulation, procedure or form. or has a significant impact on costs or administrative costs on contractors or suppliers. This final rule should not be published for public notice, as it only adapts the thresholds according to predefined formulas in order to adapt to changes in economic conditions and thus maintain the status quo, without having a significant impact on the government`s internal operating procedures. In accordance with Annex 504.4 of the Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA), the Secretariat shall communicate to the Parties the appropriate covered procurement thresholds by 1 November of the year preceding the entry into force of the adjustment. The currently covered supply thresholds are available below: Executive Order 12260 (E.O.) requires the United States Trade Representative to set the thresholds in United States dollars for the application of Title III of the Trade Agreements Act of 1979 in its current version (19 U.S.C 2511 et seq.).
