FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Amy Williams, Defense Acquisition 
Regulations System, OUSD (AT&L) DPAP (DARS), IMD 3D139, 3062 Defense

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Background

    This final rule removes DFARS 225.7016, Restriction on Research and 
Development, since the underlying statutory provision (Section 744 of 
the DoD Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 1973 (Pub. L. 92-570)) is no 
longer in effect. Section 744 of Public Law 92-570 prohibited the use 
of DoD appropriations to make an award to any foreign corporation, 
organization, person, or entity, for research and development in 
connection with any weapon system or other military equipment, if a 
U.S. corporation, organization, person, or entity was equally competent 
and willing to perform at a lower cost.
    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 
2009-D005.

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.
