FROM: John D. Graham, Ph.D. Administrator
SUBJECT: The Small Business Paperwork Relief Act

On June 28, 2002, the Small Business Paperwork Relief Act (SBPRA) was enacted as Public Law 107-198 (attached). This law, which amended the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), imposes certain requirements on the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and on Federal agencies. The Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) has prepared the attached question and answer document to assist agencies in understanding their obligations under the statute.

Please note that the statute requires each agency to submit an initial regulatory enforcement report to Congress by December 31, 2003, which will cover that agency’s activities in fiscal year 2003.

Please share this memorandum and the two attachments with the appropriate program managers within your agency.
