SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    DoD published an interim rule at 71 FR 58537 on October 4, 2006, to 
implement Section 803 of the National Defense Authorization Act for 
Fiscal Year 2006 (Pub. L. 109-163). Section 803 permits the treatment 
or acquisition of a major weapon system as a commercial item only if 
(1) The Secretary of Defense determines that the major weapon system 
meets the definition of commercial item at 41 U.S.C. 403(12) and such 
treatment is necessary to meet national security objectives; and (2) 
the congressional defense committees are notified at least 30 days 
before such treatment or acquisition occurs.
    DoD received no comments on the interim rule. Therefore, DoD has 
adopted the interim rule as a final rule without change.
    This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review 
under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    DoD certifies that this final rule will not 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 rule relates to internal DoD considerations regarding the 
acquisition of major weapon systems.

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.
