Federal Activities Inventory Reform (FAIR) Act

The FAIR Act was enacted in 1998 to create a process for identifying the functions of the Federal Government that are not inherently governmental functions.  The Act requires that each year Federal agencies produce a list of activities performed by Federal Government sources for the agency that, in the judgment of the agency head , are not inherently governmental in nature.

Past USPTO inventories are provided below; 2009 represents the last year in which the USPTO published an annual inventory.  For more information, please contact the Office of Planning and Budget.
