SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    This final rule amends DFARS text as follows:
    [cir] 206.303-1--Removes text designating the Director of Defense 
Procurement and Acquisition Policy as the agency point of contact for 
submission of certain justification and approval documents to the U.S. 
Trade Representative. This text is no longer applicable, as the 
underlying Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) requirement for 
submission of these documents to the U.S. Trade Representative was 
removed by the interim rule that was published at 69 FR 77870 on 
December 28, 2004, and finalized at 71 FR 219 on January 3, 2006.
    [cir] 225.870-2 and 225.872-3--Removes text addressing requirements 
for inclusion of Canadian firms and qualifying country sources on 
solicitation mailing lists, and for sending solicitations to the 
Canadian Commercial Corporation as well as Canadian firms appearing on 
the lists. This text is no longer applicable, as solicitation mailing 
lists have been replaced by electronic tools such as the Central 
Contractor Registration database and the Federal Business Opportunities 
Web site. The FAR was amended to remove references to solicitation 
mailing lists in the final rule published at 68 FR 43855 on July 24, 
2003.
    This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review 
under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    This rule will not have a significant cost or administrative impact 
on contractors or offerors, or a significant effect beyond the internal 
operating procedures of DoD. Therefore, publication for public comment 
under 41 U.S.C. 418b is not required. However, DoD will consider 
comments from small entities concerning the affected DFARS subparts in 
accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Such comments should cite DFARS Case 
2006-D046.

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.
