These links go to the official, published CFR, which is updated annually. As a result, it may not include the most recent changes applied to the CFR. You can learn more about the process here.
By default, the eCFR is displayed with paragraphs split and indented to follow the hierarchy of the document (“Enhanced Display”). This is an automated process for user convenience only and is not intended to alter agency intent or existing codification.
The eCFR also offers a “Drafting Display”, where the paragraphs shown match the original CFR text. If you work for a Federal Agency, you should use the “Drafting Mode” when authoring amendatory language for inclusion in the Federal Register.
The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) is the official legal print publication containing the codification of the general and permanent rules published in the Federal Register by the departments and agencies of the Federal Government. The Electronic Code of Federal Regulations (eCFR) is a continuously updated online version of the CFR. It is not an official legal edition of the CFR.

(b) If USDA determines that any of the requirements of paragraph (a) of this section have not been met, no determination of indebtedness will be made and salary offset will not proceed until USDA is assured that the requirements have been met.
