SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    DoD published an interim rule at 72 FR 14242 on March 27, 2007, to 
implement the Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free 
Trade Agreement with respect to the Dominican Republic, and to add 
Bulgaria and Romania to the list of countries covered by the World 
Trade Organization Government Procurement Agreement.
    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. 
Although the rule opens up DoD procurement to the products of Bulgaria, 
the Dominican Republic, and Romania, there will be no significant 
impact on U.S. small businesses. DoD applies the trade agreements to 
only those non-defense items listed at DFARS 225.401-70, and 
procurements that are set aside for small businesses are exempt from 
application of the trade agreements.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

    This rule affects the certification and information collection 
requirements in the provisions at DFARS 252.225-7020 and 252.225-7035, 
currently approved under Office of Management and Budget Control Number 
0704-0229. The impact, however, is negligible.
