Feds Delay Proposed ‘Factoryless Goods Producer’ Category

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is announcing that the Factoryless Goods Producer (FGP) recommendation will not be implemented in 2017. The August 17, 2011, the OMB required Federal statistical agencies to implement the FGP classification beginning no later than 2017. However, the Economic Classification Policy Committee (ECPC), which advises OMB, recently reported that results of preliminary research on the effectiveness of survey questions designed to identify Factoryless Goods Producers shows inconsistent results. These results indicate that questions tested in the 2012 Economic Census fail to yield responses that provide accurate and reliable identification and classification of FGPs. The ECPC has advised that additional research, testing, and evaluation are required to find a method for accurate identification and classification of FGPs, and that this process could take several years.
