Information Regarding the Reclassification of Positions in the 
Occupational Safety and Health Administration as Reported in the 
Department of Labor's FY 2005 FAIR Act Inventory

AGENCY: Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 
Department of Labor.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Pursuant to the provisions of the Federal Activities Inventory 
Reform Act of 1998 (FAIR Act), and the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) Circular A-76, the Department of Labor must notify the public 
when it either concurs or disagrees with a challenge from directly 
affected employees. In this case, the challenge concerns the 
reclassification of a number of full time equivalent (FTE) 
Whistleblower Investigators, Supervisory Investigators, Program 
Managers, and Team Leaders in OSHA's National Office and field 
locations, to ``inherently governmental'' status from their prior 
classification as commercial in nature in the Department of Labor's FY 
2005 FAIR Act Inventory for OSHA.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Douglas Goodell, Office of Human 
Resources, 200 Constitution Avenue,
NW., Washington, DC 20210, 202-693-2588.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the provisions of the Federal 
Activities Inventory Reform Act of 1998 (Public Law 105-270), and 
consistent with Section B.1 of Attachment A of Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) Circular A-76 (revised May 29, 2003), the Department of 
Labor has concurred with a challenge from directly affected employees 
regarding 70 full time equivalent (FTE) Whistleblower Investigators, 
Supervisory Investigators, Program Managers, and Team Leaders in OSHA's 
National Office (3 FTE) and 45 field locations (67 FTE). The Department 
has determined that all 70 FTE should be reclassified as ``inherently 
governmental'' from their prior classification as commercial in nature 
(i.e., 3 FTE as Commercial Reason Code A and 67 FTE as Commercial 
Reason Code B) in the Department of Labor's FY 2005 FAIR Act Inventory 
for OSHA. An updated 2005 FAIR Act Inventory report is to be prepared 
and posted to the Department's FAIR Act Inventory Web site within five 
(5) business days following the next update cycle.

    Signed in Washington, DC this 29th day of June, 2006.
Edwin G. Foulke, Jr.,
Assistant Secretary, Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
