Background DFARS Transformation is a major DoD initiative to dramatically change the purpose and content of the DFARS. The objective is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the acquisition process, while allowing the acquisition workforce the flexibility to innovate. The transformed DFARS will contain only requirements of law, DoDwide policies, delegations of FAR authorities, deviations from FAR requirements, and policies/procedures that have a significant effect beyond the internal operating procedures of DoD or a significant cost or administrative impact on contractors or offerors. Additional information on the DFARS Transformation initiative is available at http://www.acq.osd.mil/dpap/dars/ dfars/transformation/index.htm. This final rule is a result of the DFARS Transformation initiative.

These issues are adequately addressed in the Federal Acquisition Regulation at 8.003 and Subpart 8.5; Æ Delete obsolete text on the DoD Industrial Preparedness Production Planning Program. There is no longer a DoD-wide Program; and Æ Delete procedures for ordering from central nonprofit agencies; for acquisition of items under the DoD Coordinated Acquisition Program; for contracting or performing field service functions for NASA; for use of the DoD Precious Metals Recovery Program; and for use of enterprise software agreements for acquiring commercial software and related services. Text on these subjects has been relocated to the DFARS companion resource, Procedures, Guidance, and Information (PGI), available at http:// www.acq.osd.mil/dpap/dars/pgi. DoD published a proposed rule at 70 FR 73187 on December 9, 2005. One source submitted comments on the proposed rule. That source recommended establishment of separate Federal supply class (FSC) commodity codes for Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) compliant products, to distinguish the ADA or OSHA compliant products from similar products that are not ADA or OSHA compliant (e.g., ramps, landings, steps, decks). Although DoD includes certain FSC commodity codes in its publications, the codes are established and maintained by the General Services Administration (GSA). Therefore, DoD has forwarded the respondent’s recommendation to GSA for consideration. DoD has adopted the proposed rule as a final rule, with an additional change at DFARS 225.7005– 1 to remove a reference to DFARS Subpart 208.72, which has been eliminated by this rule. This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993. C. Paperwork Reduction Act B. Regulatory Flexibility Act DoD certifies 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 the rule deletes obsolete, unnecessary, or procedural DFARS text, but makes no significant change to DoD contracting policy.

Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement; Required 
Sources of Supply

AGENCY: Defense Acquisition Regulations System, Department of Defense 
(DoD).

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: DoD has issued a final rule amending the Defense Federal 
Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to update text addressing 
acquisitions made through Government supply sources. This rule is a 
result of a transformation initiative undertaken by DoD to dramatically 
change the purpose and content of the DFARS.

DATES: Effective Date: July 11, 2006.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Robin Schulze, Defense Acquisition 
Regulations System, OUSD (AT&L) DPAP (DARS), IMD 3C132, 3062 Defense 
Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-3062. Telephone (703) 602-0326;

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    DFARS Transformation is a major DoD initiative to dramatically 
change the purpose and content of the DFARS. The objective is to 
improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the acquisition process, 
while allowing the acquisition workforce the flexibility to innovate. 
The transformed DFARS will contain only requirements of law, DoD-wide 
policies, delegations of FAR authorities, deviations from FAR 
requirements, and policies/procedures that have a significant effect 
beyond the internal operating procedures of DoD or a significant cost 
or administrative impact on contractors or offerors. Additional 
information on the DFARS Transformation initiative is available at 
http://www.acq.osd.mil/dpap/dars/dfars/transformation/index.htm.
    This final rule is a result of the DFARS Transformation initiative. 
The DFARS changes--
    [cir] Delete informational text on GSA Federal Supply Schedules 
that is unnecessary for inclusion in the DFARS;
    [cir] Delete text on the Defense National Stockpile and the 
acquisition of helium. These issues are adequately addressed in the 
Federal Acquisition Regulation at 8.003 and Subpart 8.5;
    [cir] Delete obsolete text on the DoD Industrial Preparedness 
Production Planning Program. There is no longer a DoD-wide Program; and
    [cir] Delete procedures for ordering from central nonprofit 
agencies; for acquisition of items under the DoD Coordinated 
Acquisition Program; for contracting or performing field service 
functions for NASA; for use of the DoD Precious Metals Recovery 
Program; and for use of enterprise software agreements for acquiring 
commercial software and related services. Text on these subjects has 
been relocated to the DFARS companion resource, Procedures, Guidance, 
and Information (PGI), available at http://www.acq.osd.mil/dpap/dars/
pgi.
    DoD published a proposed rule at 70 FR 73187 on December 9, 2005. 
One source submitted comments on the proposed rule. That source 
recommended establishment of separate Federal supply class (FSC) 
commodity codes for Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and 
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) compliant 
products, to distinguish the ADA or OSHA compliant products from 
similar products that are not ADA or OSHA compliant (e.g., ramps, 
landings, steps, decks). Although DoD includes certain FSC commodity 
codes in its publications, the codes are established and maintained by 
the General Services Administration (GSA). Therefore, DoD has forwarded 
the respondent's recommendation to GSA for consideration. DoD has 
adopted the proposed rule as a final rule, with an additional change at 
DFARS 225.7005-1 to remove a reference to DFARS Subpart 208.72, which 
has been eliminated by this rule.
    This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review 
under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    DoD certifies 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 the rule deletes obsolete, unnecessary, or procedural DFARS 
text, but makes no significant change to DoD contracting policy.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply, because the rule does 
not impose any information collection requirements that require the 
approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, 
et seq.
