Download as PDF 59916 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 222 / Thursday, November 19, 2009 / Rules and Regulations specified herein. The analysis is summarized as follows: The objective of the rule is to provide for competition in the acquisition of items for which FPI has a significant market share. The legal basis for the rule is 10 U.S.C. 2410n, as amended by section 827 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008 (Pub. L. 110–181). The rule is expected to benefit small business concerns that offer items for which FPI has a significant market share, by permitting those concerns to compete for additional DoD contract awards. The rule also could adversely impact small business concerns that provide supplies and services to FPI relative to the affected items. There are no practical alternatives that would accomplish the objectives of section 827 of Public Law 110–181. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    DoD published an interim rule at 74 FR 2415 on January 15, 2009, to 
implement section 824 of the National Defense Authorization Act for 
Fiscal Year 2009 (Pub. L. 110-417). The rule amended the DoD pilot 
program for transition to follow-on contracting after use of other 
transaction authority, to establish a new program expiration date and 
to add items developed under research projects to the types of items to 
which the program applies. The pilot program provides that certain 
items that do not otherwise meet the definition of ``commercial item'' 
may be treated as commercial items in the award of contracts and 
subcontracts that follow an other transaction agreement.
    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 is expected to ease the transition of nontraditional 
defense contractors from the use of other transaction agreements to 
standard contracts, 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.
