The revisions also clarify that records compiled for law enforcement purposes by another agency and records provided by GAO to another agency for law enforcement purposes are not subject to disclosure. The previous regulatory language on this point was imprecise. The changes also add steps to the procedures for using GAO's public reading facility, to facilitate the efficient use of the facility.

Regarding sec. 326 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008, the proposed amendments to GAO's Bid Protest Regulations implement the legislation's provisions related to the bid protest process concerning Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-76, as revised on May 29, 2003. In this regard, the legislation expands the protest rights of Federal employees in an A-76 competition to grant ``any one individual'' who represents the majority of affected employees the status of an ``interested party'' to file a protest at GAO or the status of an intervenor to participate in a protest filed at GAO, to remove the current restriction limiting protests of A-76 competitions to those competitions affecting 65 or more full-time equivalent employees of a Federal agency, and to allow a protest of a decision to convert a function performed by Federal employees to private sector performance without a competition. At this time, GAO believes that these proposed revisions are the only regulatory changes necessary to implement the statutory requirements expanding the protest rights of Federal employees in an A-76 competition. Regarding administrative changes, the proposed amendments to GAO's Bid Protest Regulations are to reflect current practice and to streamline the bid protest process. GAO welcomes comments on these proposed revisions.

Specifically, the revision to the congressional correspondence exemption enables GAO to release or withhold congressional correspondence without prior congressional authorization. The new provision ensures that an agency from which an interview was obtained is notified of a request for the record of interview and receives an opportunity to advise GAO whether the record of interview or portions thereof should be exempt from disclosure. The new provision will enhance the open, frank, and honest exchange of information from other agencies, nonfederal organizations, and individuals to GAO during the course of a GAO audit, evaluation, or investigation.

This document also revises the definition of an intervenor to permit an ATO and an employee representative to intervene in certain protests involving public- private competitions under OMB Circular A-76. This action implements the provisions of the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005 related to the bid protest process, where a public-private competition has been conducted under OMB Circular A-76 regarding an activity or function of a Federal agency performed by more than 65 full-time equivalent (FTE) employees of the Federal agency.

Reagan National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005, Pub. L. 108-375, 118 Stat. 1811, enacted on October 28, 2004. The proposed amendments to GAO's Bid Protest Regulations implement the legislation's provisions related to the bid protest process, where a public-private competition has been conducted under Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-76, as revised on May 29, 2003, regarding an activity or function of a Federal agency performed by more than 65 full-time equivalent employees of the Federal agency. In this regard, the legislating grants designated representatives of an in-house competitor the status of an ``interested party'' to file a protest at GAO or the status of an ``intervenor'' to participate in a protest filed at GAO. In addition, consistent with the legislation, GAO is proposing to add a provision to its Bid Protest Regulations stating that GAO will not review the decision of an agency tender official to file a protest (or not to file a protest) in connection with a public-private competition. At this time, GAO believes that these proposed revisions are the only regulatory changes necessary to implement the statutory requirements expanding the definitions of an interested party and an intervenor in protests involving public-private competitions. GAO welcomes comments on these proposed revisions, as well as suggestions for changes to other areas of GAO's Bid Protest Regulations or the bid protest process at GAO relating to protests of public-private competitions conducted under OMB Circular A-76. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The amendments are necessary in order for the GAO to voluntarily adopt certain procedural principles of the Electronic Freedom of Information Act Amendments of 1996. Specifically, the amendments make it clear that the public may request and obtain electronic records under the regulations. Further, they inform the public that GAO published documents may easily be obtained from GAO's Internet Web site. Other minor changes and ``housekeeping'' amendments are made to clarify current policy and to correct titles, addresses, telephone numbers, and the hours of operation of the GAO public reading facility, which is located in the Law Library at the GAO Building. The overall effect of the amendments is for GAO to generally take less time in processing information requests.

The PAB's jurisdiction includes authority over appeals from Reduction in Force (RIF) actions taken by the agency. The GAO has recently revised Order 2351.1, Reduction in Force, applicable to GAO employees. The Personnel Appeals Board hereby amends its regulations to provide employees who are separated from employment as a result of a RIF action with the option of appealing directly to the PAB without first filing a charge with the Board's Office of General Counsel (PAB/OGC), as prescribed in Sec. 28.11 of this part, and obtaining a Right to Appeal Letter. This change is designed to expedite the appeal process, at the employee's option, in situations in which the RIF action results in separation from employment. Because of the need to have procedures in place in the event of agency implementation of the Reduction in Force Order, these revisions are being made effective immediately, on an interim basis. The Board is, however, very interested in receiving comments from the public before it finalizes these regulations.
