ACTION: Direct final rule; confirmation of effective date. AGENCY: The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) published a direct final rule that notified the public of its intent to remove the FEMA Acquisition Regulation in its entirety. FEMA did not receive any comments on the rule. Therefore, the rule will go into effect as scheduled. DATES: The effective date of the direct final rule published March 2, 2007 (72 FR 9445) is confirmed as May 1, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Joyce M.

SUMMARY: On March 2, 2007, FEMA published a direct final rule at 72 FR 9445 that notified the public of FEMA’s intent to remove the FEMA Acquisition Regulation (FEMAAR) at 48 CFR Chapter 44 in its entirety. The specific language and subsequent clauses are removed as a result of the transfer of FEMA to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on March 1, 2003. The Homeland Security Acquisition Regulation (HSAR) created a department-wide acquisition regulation for DHS in 48 CFR Chapter 30, and included FEMA in the list of entities for which the chapter applied, thereby superseding and making 48 CFR Chapter 44 duplicative and pwalker on PROD1PC71 with RULES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:20 Apr 25, 2007 Jkt 211001 Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement; Acquisition Integrity (DFARS Case 2006–D044) Defense Acquisition Regulations System, Department of Defense (DoD).

Background This final rule adds a new section at DFARS 203.170 to address requirements for the separation of Government functions for oversight, source selection, contract negotiation, and contract award. The rule contains best practice policies to ensure the separation of such functions. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4700 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–D044. C.

(b) Vacant acquisition positions shall be filled on an ‘‘acting’’ basis from below until a permanent appointment is made. To provide promising professionals an opportunity to gain experience by temporarily filling higher positions, these oversight duties shall not be accrued at the top. (c) Acquisition process reviews of the military departments shall be conducted to assess and improve acquisition and management processes, roles, and structures.
