Combined Federal Campaign Reference Materials

CFC Memorandum 2006-17

June 29, 2006

TO: LOCAL FEDERAL COORDINATING COMMITTEES AND
PRINCIPAL COMBINED FUND ORGANIZATIONS AND PARTICIPATING CFC CHARITIES
FROM: MARA T. PATERMASTER
DIRECTOR, OFFICE OF CFC OPERATIONS
SUBJECT: RIN 3206-AL05 Proposed Regulations Posted for Public Comment

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has proposed changes to the eligibility requirements, the public accountability standards, and to other parts of the current Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) regulations found at Part 950 of title 5 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The proposed changes are intended to streamline the eligibility requirements, the public accountability standards, and other administrative requirements to reduce the burden on charitable organizations seeking to qualify for the CFC. The proposed changes also are intended to simplify the administrative process for determining whether charitable organizations are eligible to participate in the CFC and to facilitate modernization of the CFC program.

The proposed regulations can be found online in this copy of the Federal Register.

As noted in the Federal Register, OPM will consider comments received within 45 days from the date of publication of the proposed regulations. You may submit comments, identified by regulation identifier number (RIN), by any of the following methods:

  • The Federal eRulemaking Portal – Follow the instructions for submitting comments.
  • E-mail: cfc@opm.gov. Include "RIN 3206-AL05" in the subject line of the message.
  • Fax: (202) 606-0902
  • Mail: Mara T. Patermaster, Director, Office of CFC Operations, U.S. Office of Personnel Management, Room 5450, 1900 E Street, NW., Washington, DC 20415.
  • Hand Delivery / Courier: Director, Office of CFC Operations, U.S. Office of Personnel Management, Room 5450, 1900 E Street, NW., Washington, DC 20415.

If you have any questions regarding the proposed regulations, please contact Mark W. Lambert, Senior Compliance Officer for the Office of CFC Operations, by telephone on (202) 606-2564, by FAX on (202) 606-0902, or by email at cfc@opm.gov.
