Privacy Act Systems of Records 

The Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a) requires each Federal agency to publish a notice in the Federal Register of each system of records that it maintains. A system of records is any grouping of information about an individual under the control of a Federal agency from which it retrieves information by the name, Social Security number, or some other personal identifier, including number or symbol assigned to an individual. 

A Guide for Government Agencies: How to Comply with the Regulatory Flexibility Act

Published August 2017

 Foreword

Economic freedom is the foundation for individual success and prosperity. This freedom is evident in the entrepreneurial small business sector, which creates most of the new jobs and a large share of the innovations in the American economy. When government takes small businesses into consideration in developing regulations, it saves time and money and supports the growth of the nation’s most productive sector.

Economic developers in regions across the United States often want to support entrepreneurial activity, but find it difficult both to develop suitable prescriptions and to put them into practice. Analysis of case studies has identified a promising pattern of economic clusters (agglomerations). Creating or supporting economic clusters is a possible means of supporting entrepreneurship. Here is the complete report on New Business Clustering in U.S. Counties, 1990-2006

Every state and many local governments have economic development agencies dedicated to assisting new and established businesses start, grow and succeed. Services provided by these agencies typically include:

  • Start up advice, training and resources

  • Financial assistance with loans, grants and tax-exempt bonds

  • Business location and site selection assistance

  • Employee recruitment and training assistance
