E6–20393 Filed 11–30–06; 8:45 am] VerDate Aug<31>2005 69489 DoD published an interim rule at 70 FR 52031 on September 1, 2005, addressing policy and procedures that apply when an IRS levy may result in a contractor’s inability to perform a DoD contract. DoD received comments from 6 sources in response to the interim rule. DoD considered all comments and has incorporated the following changes in the final rule: DFARS 212.301(f)—Addition of a prescription for use of the clause at 252.232–7010, Levies on Contract Payments, in contracts for the acquisition of commercial items. DFARS 232.7101 and 252.232–7010— Clarification that the requirement for the contractor to notify the contracting officer applies in situations where the levy may result in an ‘‘inability to perform the contract.’’ This change eliminates the term ‘‘jeopardize contract performance,’’ since that term may be understood as establishing a different standard than causing an inability to perform. DFARS 232.7102—Exclusion of micro-purchases from the requirement to use the clause at 252.232–7010. E:\FR\FM\01DER1.SGM 01DER1
