Compliance Assistance

The Small Business Paperwork Relief Act of 2002 (SBPRA) requires each Federal agency to establish a point of contact to act as a liaison between the agency and small business concerns. In addition, SBPRA requires the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), in conjunction with the Small Business Administration, to publish on the Internet a list of compliance assistance resources available at Federal agencies for small businesses. With help from the Small Business Administration's National Ombudsman, the OMB has assembled lists of agency contacts below and, separately, a list of compliance assistance resources. These lists are also consistent with the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA), which called on Federal regulatory agencies to publish small business guides that assist small firms in complying with, and answer small businesses' inquiries about Federal regulations.
