SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    Every two years, the trade agreements thresholds are escalated 
according to a pre-determined formula set forth in the agreements. The 
United States Trade Representative published the new thresholds in the 
December 12, 2005, Federal Register (70 FR 73510 to 73511) and has 
specified the following new thresholds:

 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                             Supply Contract  Service Contract    Construction
                      Trade Agreement                         (equal to or      (equal to or     Contract (equal
                                                               exceeding)        exceeding)     to or exceeding)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not 
subject to review under Section 6(b) of Executive Order 12866, 
Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is 
not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    This interim rule is not expected to have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of 
the Regulatory Flexibility Act,5 U.S.C. 601, et seq. The threshold 
changes are in line with inflation and only maintain the status quo. 
Therefore, an Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis has not been 
performed. We invite comments from small business concerns and other 
interested parties on this issue. The Councils will also consider 
comments from small entities concerning the affected FAR Parts 22, 25, 
and 52 in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Interested parties must submit 
such comments separately and should cite 5 U.S.C 601, et seq. (FAC 
2005-08, FAR case 2005-030), in correspondence.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does apply; however, the changes to the 
FAR do not impose additional information collection requirements to the 
paperwork burden previously approved under OMB Control Numbers 9000-
0025, 9000-0130, 9000-0141, and 9000-0155.

D. Determination to Issue an Interim Rule

    A determination has been made under the authority of the Secretary 
of Defense (DoD), the Administrator of General Services (GSA), and the 
Administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration 
(NASA) that urgent and compelling reasons exist to promulgate this 
interim rule without prior opportunity for public comment. The United 
States Trade Representative published the thresholds in the December 
12, 2005, Federal Register (70 FR 73510 to 73511). This action is 
necessary because these threshold changes go into effect January 1, 
2006. However, pursuant to Public Law 98-577 and FAR 1.501, the 
Councils will consider public comments received in response to this 
interim rule in the formation of the final rule.
