SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    10 U.S.C. 2864 contained a prohibition on the performance of work 
by persons with nonimmigrant status under contracts for military 
construction on Guam. Section 2810 of the National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007 (Pub. L. 109-364) repealed 10 
U.S.C. 2864. Therefore, this final rule revises DFARS Subpart 222.73 to 
remove references to the prohibition of 10 U.S.C. 2864. The statutory 
prohibition on the use of nonimmigrant aliens under contracts for base 
operations support on Guam (Pub. L. 105-85, Section 390) is still in 
effect and continues to be implemented in DFARS Subpart 222.73.
    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 subpart in 
accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Such comments should cite DFARS Case 
2006-D065.

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.
