SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Background

    Section 904 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal 
Year 2006 (Pub. L. 109-163) redesignated the ``Office of Small and 
Disadvantaged Business Utilization'' to the ``Office of Small Business 
Programs'' for DoD. This final rule amends the DFARS to reflect the 
redesignation.
    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 
2008-D001.
