(c)(3) For cost-reimbursement contracts for services with small business concerns, use the clause at 252.232–7XXX, Payments on CostReimbursement Contracts for Services with Small Business Concerns, instead of Alternate I of the clause at FAR 52.232–25. PART 252—SOLICITATION PROVISIONS AND CONTRACT CLAUSES mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with PROPOSALS 252.232–7XXX Payments on CostReimbursement Contracts for Services with Small Business Concerns.

(b) Although accelerated payments may be made in 14 days in accordance with section 232.906(a)(ii) of the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement, for purposes of computing late payment interest penalties that may apply, the due date for payment is the 30th day after the designated billing office receives a proper payment request. (c) The Contractor shall submit requests for interim payments in accordance with paragraph (a) of FAR 52.216–7, Allowable Cost and Payment.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Gary Delaney, (703) 602–8384. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: 5. Section 252.232–7XXX is added to read as follows: (End of clause) Defense Acquisition Regulations System The contract clause at DFARS 252.211–7003, Item Identification and Valuation, requires unique identification for all delivered items for which the Government’s unit acquisition cost is $5,000 or more, and for other items designated by the Frm 00050 Fmt 4702 Government. In addition, the clause requires identification of the Government’s unit acquisition cost for all delivered items, and provides instructions to contractors regarding the identification and valuation processes. This proposed rule revises the clause at DFARS 252.211–7003 to update and clarify instructions for the identification and valuation processes. The changes include: Updating of references to standards and other documents; clarification of the definition of unique item identifier; specifically addressing the DoD recognized unique identification equivalent, where applicable; clarification of data submission requirements for end items and embedded items; and clarification of requirements for inclusion of the clause in subcontracts. This proposed rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993. B. Regulatory Flexibility Act DoD does not expect this proposed rule to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., because the proposed rule does not significantly change existing requirements relating to the identification and valuation of items delivered under DoD contracts. Therefore, DoD has not performed an initial regulatory flexibility analysis. DoD invites comments from small businesses and other interested parties. DoD also will consider comments from small entities concerning the affected DFARS subpart in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Such comments should be submitted separately and should cite DFARS Case 2007–D007. C. Paperwork Reduction Act The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply, because the proposed 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    The contract clause at DFARS 252.211-7003, Item Identification and 
Valuation, requires unique identification for all delivered items for 
which the Government's unit acquisition cost is $5,000 or more, and for 
other items designated by the Government. In addition, the clause 
requires identification of the Government's unit acquisition cost for 
all delivered items, and provides instructions to contractors regarding 
the identification and valuation processes.
    This proposed rule revises the clause at DFARS 252.211-7003 to 
update and clarify instructions for the identification and valuation 
processes. The changes include: Updating of references to standards and 
other documents; clarification of the definition of unique item 
identifier; specifically addressing the DoD recognized unique 
identification equivalent, where applicable; clarification of data 
submission requirements for end items and embedded items; and 
clarification of requirements for inclusion of the clause in 
subcontracts.
    This proposed rule was not subject to Office of Management and 
Budget review under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    DoD does not expect this proposed rule to have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the 
meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., 
because the proposed rule does not significantly change existing 
requirements relating to the identification and valuation of items 
delivered under DoD contracts. Therefore, DoD has not performed an 
initial regulatory flexibility analysis. DoD invites comments from 
small businesses and other interested parties. DoD also will consider 
comments from small entities concerning the affected DFARS subpart in 
accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Such comments should be submitted 
separately and should cite DFARS Case 2007-D007.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply, because the proposed 
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.
