Regulatory Secretariat Division
The Regulatory Secretariat Division staff prepares, compiles, and processes regulatory and general notices for publication in the Federal Register. The Division works in conjunction with the efforts of the General Services Administration (GSA), Department of Defense (DOD), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to ensure publication of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR). Additional publications are processed by working with various GSA offices to ensure the publications of the Federal Management Regulation (FMR), Federal Travel Regulation (FTR), General Services Acquisition Regulation/Manual (GSAR/GSAM), and other General Services Administration (GSA) regulations.
GSA’s Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) program is managed by the Regulatory Secretariat Division. Information collections consist of paper and web media and are used to collect information from the public. The staff ensures all information collections are published in the Federal Register, public comments are sought, and the requests are submitted to OMB for approval.
