SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A summary of the FAR rule follows. For the 
actual revisions and/or amendments to this FAR case, refer to FAR Case 
2006-032. FAC 2005-18 amends the FAR as specified below:

Item I--Small Business Size Rerepresentation (FAR Case 2006-032)

    This interim rule amends the FAR to implement the Small Business 
Administration's (SBA) final rule published on November 15, 2006 (71 FR 
66434), entitled ``Small Business Size Regulations; Size for Purposes 
of Governmentwide Acquisition Contracts, Multiple Award Schedule 
Contracts and Other Long-Term Contracts; 8(a) Business Development/
Small Disadvantaged Business; Business Status Determinations.'' The 
purpose of the SBA rule and this FAR rule is to improve the accuracy of 
small business size status reporting, at the prime contract level, over 
the life of certain contracts (long-term contracts, contracts involving 
novations, acquisitions, and mergers). Contractors will be required to 
rerepresent their size status on contracts prior to the end of the 
fifth year of a contract that is more than five years in duration 
(long-term contract); prior to exercising any option thereafter; 
following execution of a novation agreement; or following a merger or 
acquisition of the contractor, regardless of whether there is a 
novation agreement. A change in the size status does not change the 
terms and conditions of the contract, but the agency may no longer 
include the value of options exercised or orders issued against the 
contract in its small business prime contracting goal achievements.
