FAIR Act Inventories

The "Federal Activities Inventory Reform Act of 1998," P.L. 105-270 (the FAIR Act) directs Federal agencies to prepare each year an inventory of their commercial activities performed by Federal employees. OMB Circular A-76 establishes Federal policy regarding the performance of commercial activities and implements the statutory requirements of the FAIR Act. Consistent with the guidance issued by OMB, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Office of the Inspector General (OIG), reviewed each OIG full-time equivalents (FTE) to determine whether the position is commercial in nature or inherently governmental. As a result of this review, we have classified 35 FTE as inherently governmental and 28 FTE as potentially commercial in nature in Fiscal Year (FY) 2014.

Inventory of Inherently Governmental Activities

The NRC/OIG FY 2014 Inventory of Inherently Governmental Activities, compiled according to OMB guidance, reports on the number of employees aligned with activities deemed to be inherently governmental. The information on these inherently governmental functions is listed by the function codes developed by OMB.

Inherently governmental activities are work functions that are required to be performed by Federal employees and are not subject to the FAIR Act.

The 35 inherently governmental FTE are classified in functions that are specifically exempt from the cost comparison requirements of OMB Circular A-76 and Supplement. These functions include criminal investigators with statutory law enforcement authority (15 FTE), senior managers (6 FTE), Team Leaders (4 FTE), secretaries to Ex/SES managers (3 FTE), budget execution (1 FTE), information technology project manager (1 FTE), human resources project manager (1 FTE), General Counsel to the Inspector General and regulatory review (1 FTE), investigative analyst (1 FTE), senior technical advisor (1 FTE), and technical advisor (1 FTE).
