This amendment responds to the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act and the Department of Transportation Appropriations Act, 2015, removes some delegations of authority that were unnecessary or inaccurate, and revises some delegations of authority to improve the description of current Department practice.
The Secretary of Transportation is authorized to delegate functions, powers, and duties as the Secretary deems appropriate. This rule amends the existing delegations of authority by relocating the delegations to the Inspector General currently found in the Department's regulations on the Freedom of Information Act and updates the delegation of authority to the Inspector General to administer the Privacy Act for the Office of the Inspector General's records.
