SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    DoD published an interim rule at 73 FR 53156 on September 15, 2008, 
to implement Section 343 of the National Defense Authorization Act for 
Fiscal Year 2008 (Pub. L. 110-181). Section 343 extended, through 
September 30, 2012, the period during which contractor performance of 
security-guard functions at military installations or facilities is 
authorized to fulfill additional requirements resulting from the 
terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001, provided 
the total number of personnel employed to perform such functions does 
not exceed specified limits.
    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 may provide opportunities for small business concerns 
to receive contracts for the performance of security-guard functions at 
military installations or facilities, the economic impact is not 
expected to be substantial.

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.
