Fair Act Inventory

This page provides guidance for submission of the DOE FAIR Act Inventory, or otherwise known as the Inherently Governmental Commercial Activities (IGCA) Inventory.

The FAIR Act directs Federal agencies to issue each year an inventory of all commercial activities performed by Federal employees.  OMB reviews each agency's commercial activities inventory and consults with the agency regarding content.  Upon the completion of this review and consultation, the agency is required to transmit a copy of the FAIR Act Inventory of Commercial Activities to the Congress and make it available to the public.  The FAIR Act then establishes a limited administrative challenge and appeals process under which an interested party may challenge the omission or the inclusion of a particular activity on the inventory as a commercial activity. (See below for a discussion of the challenge and appeals process.)  In addition to meeting the FAIR Act requirements, agencies are also required by OMB Circular A-76 to issue each year an inventory of their inherently governmental activities performed by Federal employees.

This webpage provides guidance and references forthe Department’s submissions of it’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 federal workforce inventories.  The publically available FAIR Act Inventory Archieves are also listed to the right.
