OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET

 
Compliance Assistance Resources and Points of Contact Available 
to Small Businesses

AGENCY: Office of Management and Budget, Executive Office of the 
President.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: In accord with the Small Business Paperwork Relief Act of 
2002, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is publishing a ``list 
of the compliance assistance resources available to small businesses'' 
and a list of the points of contacts in agencies ``to act as a liaison 
between the agency and small business concerns'' with respect to the 
collection of information and the control of paperwork.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Jefferson B. Hill, Office of 
Information and Regulatory Affairs, OMB, Washington, DC 20503 (202/395-
3176). Inquiries may be submitted by facsimile to 202/395-7285. 
Electronic mail inquiries may be submitted to jhill@omb.eop.gov.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    The Small Business Paperwork Relief Act of 2002 (Public Law 107-
198) requires OMB to ``publish in the Federal Register and make 
available on the Internet (in consultation with the Small Business 
Administration) * * * a list of the compliance assistance resources 
available to small businesses * * *'' (44 U.S.C. 3504(c)(6)). In 
addition, under another provision of this Act, ``each agency shall, 
with respect to the collection of information and the control of 
paperwork, establish 1 point of contact in the agency to act as a 
liaison between the agency and small business concerns * * *'' (44 
U.S.C. 3506(i)(1)).
    Working in cooperation with the Small Business and Agriculture 
Enforcement Ombudsman (SBA Ombudsman) in the Small Business 
Administration, OMB has, with the active assistance and support of the 
SBA Ombudsman, assembled a list of the compliance assistance resources 
available to small businesses. Because it may be helpful to the public 
to have the list of agency contacts together with the list of 
compliance assistance resources, OMB is publishing these lists 
together. These lists are also available today on OMB's Web site at 
http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/inforeg/infocoll.html. The SBA Ombudsman 
is also making these lists available today on the SBA Ombudsman's Web 
site at http://www.sba.gov/ombudsman.

Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (INS)
    The paperwork requirement imposed by the Bureau of Citizenship and 
Immigration Services is the Form I-9. Completion of this one-page form 
by employers helps to insure a legal workforce within the United States 
and does not present a significant burden for businesses. The Bureau 
has instituted electronic filing of some applications and provides 
application status on line. These improvements have been a boost to 
many businesses, providing a speedy mechanism for filling critical 
positions with foreign experts or semi-skilled workers with temporary 
and permanent foreign workers. Many employers make use of the Bureau's 
petitions and applications for approval to hire alien temporary 
workers.
