Federal Acquisition Regulation; Technical Amendment, 20309 [06-3687]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 75 / Wednesday, April 19, 2006 / Rules and Regulations 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. payment office for fast payment. If the payment office declines to make fast payment, the Contractor shall be paid in accordance with procedures applicable to invoices to which the Fast Payment clause does not apply. B. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Department of Defense, the General Services Administration, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration certify that this final rule will not 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., because it will have a beneficial, but small, impact. Under the prior policy and clause, small businesses which failed to follow the fast payment clause instructions to mark the invoice ‘‘FAST PAY’’ had their invoices rejected, which means they would not be paid until they sent a corrected invoice. The clause revisions mean the invoices would not have to be automatically rejected. No comments were received from small entities or other members of the public. * C. Paperwork Reduction Act The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the changes to the FAR do not impose information collection requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq. * * * * (3) If this contract, order, or blanket purchase agreement requires the preparation of a receiving report, the Contractor shall either— (i) Submit the receiving report on the prescribed form with the invoice; or (ii) Include the following information on the invoice: (A) Shipment number. (B) Mode of shipment. (C) At line item level— (1) National stock number and/or manufacturer’s part number; (2) Unit of measure; (3) Ship-To Point; (4) Mark-For Point, if in the contract; and (5) FEDSTRIP/MILSTRIP document number, if in the contract. * * * * * (e) Fast pay container identification. The Contractor shall mark all outer shipping containers ‘‘FAST PAY.’’ When outer shipping containers are not marked ‘‘FAST PAY,’’ the payment office may make fast payment. If the payment office declines to make fast payment, the Contractor shall be paid in accordance with procedures applicable to invoices to which the Fast Payment clause does not apply.
