Comments received generally will be posted without change to https:// www.regulations.gov, including any personal information provided. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Amy Williams, (703) 602–0328. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Background Section 802(a) of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007 (Pub. L. 109–364) requires that DoD program managers for major weapon systems, and subsystems of major weapon systems, assess the long-term technical data needs of such systems and subsystems and establish corresponding acquisition strategies that provide for technical data rights needed to sustain such systems and subsystems over their life cycle. This interim rule amends DFARS Parts 207 and 227 to implement Section 802(a) of Public Law 109–364. Although the law does not address requirements for computer software, it is long-standing DoD policy to apply the same or similar requirements to both technical data and computer software, since many issues are common to both. Therefore, this interim DFARS rule applies to both technical data and computer software. This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993. DoD does not expect this 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 rule pertains to acquisition planning that is performed by the Government. 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 subparts in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Such comments should be submitted separately and should cite DFARS Case 2006-D055. 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. Frm 00030 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 A determination has been made under the authority of the Secretary of Defense that urgent and compelling reasons exist to publish an interim rule prior to affording the public an opportunity to comment. This interim rule implements Section 802(a) of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007 (Pub. L. 109–364). Section 802(a) requires DoD to revise regulations to incorporate requirements for program managers to assess the long-term technical data needs of major weapon systems and subsystems, and to establish corresponding acquisition strategies that provide for technical data rights needed to sustain such systems and subsystems over their life cycle. Comments received in response to this interim rule will be considered in the formation of the final rule. List of Subjects in 48 CFR Parts 207 and 227 Government procurement. Michele P. Peterson, Editor, Defense Acquisition Regulations System. Therefore, 48 CFR parts 207 and 227 are amended as follows: I 1. The authority citation for 48 CFR parts 207 and 227 continues to read as follows: I Authority: 41 U.S.C. 421 and 48 CFR Chapter 1. PART 207—ACQUISITION PLANNING 2. Section 207.106 is amended by adding paragraph (S–70) to read as follows: I B. Regulatory Flexibility Act PO 00000 D.

L. 109–364) and DoD policy requirements, acquisition plans for major weapon systems and subsystems of major weapon systems shall— (i) Assess the long-term technical data and computer software needs of those systems and subsystems; and (ii) Establish acquisition strategies that provide for the technical data deliverables and associated license rights needed to sustain those systems and subsystems over their life cycle. The strategy may include— (A) The development of maintenance capabilities within DoD; or (B) Competition for contracts for sustainment of the systems or subsystems. E:\FR\FM\06SER1.SGM 06SER1
