(l) Proposed direct costs, markups, and proposal preparation costs shall be allowable in the determination of an equitable adjustment only if they are reasonable and otherwise consistent with the contract cost principles and procedures set forth in part 31 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (48 CFR part 31) in effect on the date of this contract. Characterization of costs as direct costs, time-related costs, or overhead costs must be consistent with the requesting firm’s accounting practices on other work under this contract and other contracts. (m) If the Contracting Officer determines that it is in the Government’s interest that the Contractor proceed with a change before negotiation of an equitable adjustment is completed, the Contracting Officer may order the Contractor to proceed on the basis of a unilateral modification to the contract increasing or decreasing the contract price by an amount to be determined later. Such increase or decrease shall not exceed the increase or decrease proposed by the Contractor. (n) If the parties cannot agree to an equitable adjustment, the Contracting Officer may determine the equitable adjustment unilaterally. (o) The Contractor shall not be entitled to any proposal preparation costs incurred subsequent to the date of a unilateral determination or denial of the request if the Contracting Officer issues a unilateral determination or denial under any of the following circumstances: (1) The Contractor fails to submit a proposal within the time required by this contract or such time as may reasonably be required by the Contracting Officer. (2) The Contractor fails to submit additional information requested by the Contracting Officer within the time reasonably required. (3) Agreement to an equitable adjustment cannot be reached within 60 days of submission of the Contractor’s proposal or receipt of additional requested information, despite the VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:07 Jan 08, 2009 Jkt 217001 Contracting Officer’s diligent efforts to negotiate the equitable adjustment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Correction

    The final rule, identified as FR Doc. E8-31224 that published in 
the Federal Register on January 2, 2009 (74 FR 38) is corrected by 
fixing three typographical errors as follows.
    1. On page 38, in the second column, the second paragraph under the 
DATES caption is corrected to read:
    ``Comments must be received at the following address no later than 
4:30 p.m., A.l.t., January 13, 2009.''
    2. On page 39, column 2, in the last line the date ``December 19, 
2007'' is corrected to read ``December 19, 2008''.
    3. On page 40, in the first column, line 2, the date ``January 13, 
2008'' is corrected to read ``January 13, 2009''.

Classification

    This action corrects three typographical errors and does not 
otherwise change the requirements in the January 2, 2009 (74 FR 38) 
temporary rule.
    This action responds to the best available information recently 
obtained from the fishery. The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, 
NOAA (AA), finds good cause to waive the requirement to provide prior 
notice and opportunity for public comment pursuant to the authority set 
forth at 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) as such requirement is impracticable and 
contrary to the public interest. This requirement is

[[Page 867]]

impracticable and contrary to the public interest as it would prevent 
NMFS from responding to the most recent fisheries data in a timely 
fashion and would allow for harvests that exceed the appropriate 
allocations for pollock based on the best scientific information 
available. NMFS was unable to publish a notice providing time for 
public comment because the most recent, relevant data only became 
available as of December 19, 2008, and additional time for prior public 
comment would result in conservation concerns for the ESA-listed 
Steller sea lions.
    The AA also finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in the 
effective date of this action under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). This finding is 
based upon the reasons provided in the January 2, 2009 (74 FR 38) rule 
and is not repeated here.
    This action is required by Sec.  679.22 and Sec.  679.25 and is 
exempt from review under Executive Order 12866.

    Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.
