SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    This final rule amends the DFARS to address procedures for 
preparation of the written determination required by FAR 7.503(e), that 
none of the functions to be performed by contract are inherently 
governmental. The rule requires DoD personnel to prepare the 
determination using DoD Instruction 1100.22, Guidance for Determining 
Workforce Mix, and to also include a determination that none of the 
functions to be performed are exempt from private sector performance, 
as addressed in DoD Instruction 1100.22.
    This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review 
under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    This rule will not have a significant cost or administrative impact 
on contractors or offerors, or a significant effect beyond the internal 
operating procedures of DoD. Therefore, publication for public comment 
under 41 U.S.C. 418b is not required. However, DoD will consider 
comments from small entities concerning the affected DFARS subparts in 
accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Such comments should cite DFARS Case 
2007-D019.

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.
