ACTION: Final rule. rfrederick on PROD1PC67 with RULES AGENCY: SUMMARY: DoD has issued a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to add a clause pertaining to patent rights under contracts awarded to large business concerns for experimental, developmental, or research work. The clause is substantially the same as a Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) clause that has been removed because DoD was the only agency using the clause. DATES: Effective Date: December 7, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Amy Williams, Defense Acquisition Regulations System, OUSD (AT&L) DPAP (DARS), IMD 3D139, 3062 Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301–3062. Telephone 703–602–0328; facsimile 703–602–7887. Please cite DFARS Case 2001–D015. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:57 Dec 06, 2007 Jkt 214001 A. Background This final rule adds a clause at DFARS 252.227–7038, Patent RightsOwnership by the Contractor (Large Business). The DFARS clause is similar to the clause previously found at FAR 52.227–12, Patent Rights-Retention by the Contractor (Long Form). The FAR clause was removed by the final rule published at 72 FR 63045 on November 7, 2007, because DoD was the only agency using the clause. The new DFARS clause also contains changes for consistency with current statutory provisions and with other changes made to the FAR in the final rule published on November 7, 2007. The clause is prescribed for use in contracts awarded to large business concerns for experimental, developmental, or research work. DoD published a proposed rule at 69 FR 58377 on September 30, 2004. DoD received no comments on the proposed rule. Therefore, DoD has adopted the proposed rule as a final rule, with a minor change resulting from the final FAR rule published on November 7, 2007, removal of the clause at DFARS 252.227–7034, Patents-Subcontracts. The clause at DFARS 252.227–7034 was used in contracts containing the clause at FAR 52.227–11, Patent RightsRetention by the Contractor (Short Form), to require inclusion of the clause at FAR 52.227–12, Patent RightsRetention by the Contractor (Long Form), in subcontracts for experimental, developmental, or research work to be performed by other than a small business firm or nonprofit organization. Since the clause at FAR 52.227–12 has been removed, and paragraph (k) of the clause at FAR 52.227–11, as revised at 72 FR 63045 on November 7, 2007, adequately addresses subcontract requirements, the clause at DFARS 252.227–7034 is no longer necessary and is removed. 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 new DFARS clause applies only to contracts with large business concerns and is substantially the same as a FAR clause that is already being used in DoD contracts. C. Paperwork Reduction Act The Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) applies. The PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 69159 information collection requirements in this rule are presently approved under Office of Management and Budget Control Number 9000–0095, applicable to FAR Subpart 27.3. These hours will be transferred to OMB Control Number 0704–0369, applicable to DFARS Part 227. List of Subjects in 48 CFR Parts 227 and 252 Government procurement. Michele P. Peterson, Editor, Defense Acquisition Regulations System. Therefore, 48 CFR parts 227 and 252 are amended as follows: I 1.

Section 227.303 is revised to read as follows: I 227.303 Contract clauses. (1) Use the clause at 252.227–7039, Patents—Reporting of Subject Inventions, in solicitations and contracts containing the clause at FAR 52.227–11, Patent Rights—Ownership by the Contractor. (2)(i) Use the clause at 252.227–7038, Patent Rights—Ownership by the Contractor (Large Business), instead of the clause at FAR 52.227–11, in solicitations and contracts for experimental, developmental, or research work if— (A) The contractor is other than a small business concern or nonprofit organization; and (B) No alternative patent rights clause is used in accordance with FAR 27.303(c) or (e). (ii) Use the clause with its Alternate I if— (A) The acquisition of patent rights for the benefit of a foreign government is required under a treaty or executive agreement; (B) The agency head determines at the time of award that it would be in the national interest to acquire the right to sublicense foreign governments or international organizations pursuant to any existing or future treaty or agreement; or (C) Other rights are necessary to effect a treaty or agreement, in which case Alternate I may be appropriately modified. (iii) Use the clause with its Alternate II in long-term contracts if necessary to E:\FR\FM\07DER1.SGM 07DER1
