List of Commercial and Inherently Governmental Activities for 2007

In accordance with the requirements of the FAIR Act of 1998 the Department of Justice commercial activities are listed in the attached inventory. At the direction of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), we have also included the inherently governmental activities. All commercial activities have a “C” in the status column. All inherently governmental activities have an “I” in the status column. An interested party, as defined by the FAIR Act, may challenge the Department’s decision to list activities as commercial or inherently governmental, or the application of commercial reason codes. Challenges addressing function codes, or for any other purpose will not be considered. All challenges must be received within 30 working days of the date the inventory was made publicly available (which is also the date the OMB notice appeared in the Federal Register). All challenges must be received by the due date at the following address:
