This rule is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804. B. Regulatory Flexibility Act This interim rule is not expected 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. The dollar threshold changes are designed to keep pace with inflation and thus maintain the status quo. Therefore, we have not performed an Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis. We invite comments from small business concerns and other interested parties on this issue. The Councils will also consider comments from small entities concerning the affected FAR subparts 22, 25, and 52 in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Interested parties should submit such comments separately and should cite 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq. (FAR Case 2007–016), in correspondence. C. Paperwork Reduction Act The Paperwork Reduction Act does apply, because the interim rule affects the prescriptions for use of the certifications at 52.225–4 (OMB Control 9000–0130), 52.225–6 (OMB Control 9000–0025), and the clauses at 52.225– 9 and 52.225–11 (OMB Control 9000– 0141), which contain information collection requirements approved under the specified OMB control numbers by the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq. However, there is no impact on the estimated burden hours, because the threshold changes are in line with inflation and maintain the status quo. D. Determination To Issue an Interim Rule A determination has been made under the authority of the Secretary of Defense, the Administrator of General Services, and the Administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, that urgent and compelling reasons exist to promulgate this interim rule without prior opportunity for public comment. This interim rule incorporates increased dollar thresholds for application of the World Trade Organization Government Procurement Agreement and the Free Trade Agreements, as determined by the USTR. This action is necessary because the new thresholds are scheduled to go into effect January 1, 2008. However, pursuant to Public Law 98–577 and FAR 1.501, the Councils will consider public comments received in response to this interim rule in the formation of the final rule.

SUMMARY: The Civilian Agency Acquisition Council and the Defense Acquisition Regulations Council (Councils) have agreed to adopt the interim rule published in the Federal Register at 72 FR 46357, August 17, 2007, as a final rule without change. This final rule amends the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to implement the Dominican RepublicCentral America-United States Free Trade Agreement with respect to the Dominican Republic. DATES: Effective Date: February 28, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Meredith Murphy, Procurement Analyst, at (202) 208–6925 for clarification of content. For information pertaining to status or publication schedules, contact the FAR Secretariat at (202) 501–4755. Please cite FAC 2005–24, FAR case 2006–028. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Background DoD, GSA, and NASA published an interim rule with request for comments in the Federal Register at 72 FR 46357, August 17, 2007. The comment period closed October 16, 2007. No public comments were received in response to the interim rule. The interim rule amended FAR part 25 and the corresponding clauses in FAR part 52 to implement the Dominican Republic-Central AmericaUnited States Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA–DR) with respect to the Dominican Republic. Congress approved this trade agreement in the Dominican Republic-Central AmericaUnited States Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act (Pub. L. 109–53). PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4701 Sfmt 4700 This trade agreement waives the applicability of the Buy American Act for some foreign supplies and construction materials from the Dominican Republic and specifies procurement procedures designed to ensure fairness in the acquisition of supplies and services. The Dominican Republic has the same thresholds as the other CAFTA–DR countries ($67,826 for supply and service contracts, $7,443,000 for construction contracts). The interim rule also added Bulgaria and Romania to the list of World Trade Organization Government Procurement Agreement countries wherever it appears, whether as a separate definition, part of the definition of designated countries, or as part of the list of countries exempt from the prohibition of acquisition of products produced by forced or indentured child labor (FAR parts 22.1503, 25.003, 52.222–19, 52.225–5, and 52.225–11). This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not subject to review under Section 6(b) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804. B. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Department of Defense, the General Services Administration, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration certify 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 Government procurement to the goods and services of Bulgaria, the Dominican Republic, and Romania, the Councils do not anticipate any significant economic impact on U.S. small businesses. No comments were received from small business concerns. Therefore, a Final Regulatory Flexibility Analysis was not performed. C. Paperwork Reduction Act The Paperwork Reduction Act does apply; however, these changes to the FAR do not impose additional information collection requirements to the paperwork burden previously approved under OMB Control Numbers 9000–0025, 9000–0130, 9000–0136, and 9000–0141 respectively. The final rule affects the certification and information collection requirements in the provisions at FAR 52.212–3, 52.225–4, 52.225–6, and 52.225–11. E:\FR\FM\28FER2.SGM 28FER2

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Background

    Every two years, the trade agreements thresholds are escalated 
according to a pre-determined formula set forth in the agreements. The 
USTR, in the Federal Register, at 72 FR 71166, December 14, 2007 and 72 
FR 73904, December 28, 2007, specified the following new thresholds:

    This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not 
subject to review under Section 6(b) of Executive Order 12866, 
Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is 
not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    This interim rule is not expected 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. The dollar 
threshold changes are designed to keep pace with inflation and thus 
maintain the status quo. Therefore, we have not performed an Initial 
Regulatory Flexibility Analysis. We invite comments from small business 
concerns and other interested parties on this issue. The Councils will 
also consider comments from small entities concerning the affected FAR 
subparts 22, 25, and 52 in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Interested 
parties should submit such comments separately and should cite 5 U.S.C. 
601, et seq. (FAR Case 2007-016), in correspondence.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does apply, because the interim rule 
affects the prescriptions for use of the certifications at 52.225-4 
(OMB Control 9000-0130), 52.225-6 (OMB Control 9000-0025), and the 
clauses at 52.225-9 and 52.225-11 (OMB Control 9000-0141), which 
contain information collection requirements approved under the 
specified OMB control numbers by the Office of Management and Budget 
under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq. However, there is no impact on the 
estimated burden hours, because the threshold changes are in line with 
inflation and maintain the status quo.

D. Determination To Issue an Interim Rule

    A determination has been made under the authority of the Secretary 
of Defense, the Administrator of General Services, and the 
Administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 
that urgent and compelling reasons exist to promulgate this interim 
rule without prior opportunity for public comment. This interim rule 
incorporates increased dollar thresholds for application of the World 
Trade Organization Government Procurement Agreement and the Free Trade 
Agreements, as determined by the USTR. This action is necessary because 
the new thresholds are scheduled to go into effect January 1, 2008. 
However, pursuant to Public Law 98-577 and FAR 1.501, the Councils will 
consider public comments received in response to this interim rule in 
the formation of the final rule.
