Notwithstanding paragraph (h)(1) of this clause, the Contractor agrees that the agency may use, modify, reproduce, release, perform, display, or disclose computer software marked with government purpose legends for any purpose, and authorize others to do so; or restricted or special license rights for government purposes only. The Government agrees not to release or disclose such software unless, prior to release or disclosure, the intended recipient is subject to the use and non-disclosure agreement at 227.7103–7 of the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS), or is a Government contractor receiving access to the software for performance of a Government contract that contains the clause at DFARS 252.227–7025, Limitations on the Use or Disclosure of Government-Furnished Information Marked VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:40 May 06, 2010 Jkt 220001 with Restrictive Legends.

The Contracting Officer shall not challenge such assertions unless information provided by the Contracting Officer demonstrates that the item, component, or process was not developed exclusively at private expense. (2) Major systems. The presumption of development exclusively at private expense does not apply to major systems or subsystems or components thereof, except for commercially available off-the-shelf items (which are governed by paragraph (b)(1) of this clause). When the Contracting Officer challenges an asserted restriction regarding technical data for a major system or a subsystem or component thereof on the basis that the item, component, or process was not developed exclusively at private expense, the Contracting Officer shall sustain the challenge unless information provided by the Contractor or subcontractor demonstrates that the item, component, or process was developed exclusively at private expense. (c) Justification. The Contractor or subcontractor at any tier is responsible for maintaining records sufficient to justify the validity of its markings that impose restrictions on the Government and others to use, duplicate, or disclose technical data delivered or required to be delivered under the contract or subcontract.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Mary Overstreet, 703–602–0311. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Background This rule proposes to amend the DFARS to set forth the DoD requirement for offerors to: • Describe the standard Cost and Software Data Reporting (CSDR) process offerors intend to use to satisfy the requirements of the CSDR Manual, DoD 5000.04–M–1, and the Governmentapproved contract CSDR plan, DD Form 2794, and the related Resource Distribution Table (RDT), in proposals in response to solicitations for Major Defense Acquisition Programs and Major Automated Information System programs; • Provide comments on the adequacy of the CSDR contract plan, and the related Resource Distribution Table contained in the solicitation; and, • Submit with their pricing proposal: the DD Form 1921, Cost Data Summary Report; DD Form 1921–1, Functional Cost-Hour Report; and, DD Form 1921– 2, Progress Curve Report. During contract performance, the contractor will be required to: • Utilize a documented standard Cost and Software Data Reporting (CSDR) process that satisfies the guidelines contained in the CSDR Manual DoD 5000.04–M–1; • Use management procedures that provide for generation of timely and reliable information for the Contractor Cost Data Reports, and Software Resources Data Reports; • Use the Government-approved contract CSDR plan, DD Form 2794, Cost and Software Data Reporting Plan with the related Resource Distribution Table, and DD Form 1921–3, Contractor Business Data Report, as the basis for reporting; and • Require subcontractors, or subcontracted effort if subcontractors have not been selected, to comply with the Cost and Software Data Reporting requirements. This is not a significant regulatory action and therefore was not subject to review under section 6(b) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This is not a major rule. B. Regulatory Flexibility Act DoD has prepared an initial regulatory flexibility analysis consistent with 5 U.S.C. 603. A copy of the analysis may be obtained from the point of contact specified herein. The analysis is summarized as follows: VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:40 May 06, 2010 Jkt 220001 The objective of the rule is to set forth Cost and Software Data Reporting System reporting requirements that are essential for the DoD to estimate the cost of current and future weapon systems. The reported data will also be very useful in performing contract price analysis, comparing prices of similar systems, and for capturing contractorprovided cost estimates in standard formats to facilitate comparison across several contractors. At this time, DoD is unable to estimate the number of small entities to which this rule will apply. DoD invites comments from small businesses and other interested parties on the expected impact of this rule on small entities. DoD will also consider comments from small entities concerning the existing regulations in subparts affected by this rule in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Interested parties must submit such comments separately and should cite U.S.C. 601 (DFARS Case 2008–D027) in correspondence. C.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Background

    This rule proposes to amend the DFARS to set forth the DoD 
requirement for offerors to:
     Describe the standard Cost and Software Data Reporting 
(CSDR) process offerors intend to use to satisfy the requirements of 
the CSDR Manual, DoD 5000.04-M-1, and the Government-approved contract 
CSDR plan, DD Form 2794, and the related Resource Distribution Table 
(RDT), in proposals in response to solicitations for Major Defense 
Acquisition Programs and Major Automated Information System programs;
     Provide comments on the adequacy of the CSDR contract 
plan, and the related Resource Distribution Table contained in the 
solicitation; and,
     Submit with their pricing proposal: the DD Form 1921, Cost 
Data Summary Report; DD Form 1921-1, Functional Cost-Hour Report; and, 
DD Form 1921-2, Progress Curve Report.
    During contract performance, the contractor will be required to:
     Utilize a documented standard Cost and Software Data 
Reporting (CSDR) process that satisfies the guidelines contained in the 
CSDR Manual DoD 5000.04-M-1;
     Use management procedures that provide for generation of 
timely and reliable information for the Contractor Cost Data Reports, 
and Software Resources Data Reports;
     Use the Government-approved contract CSDR plan, DD Form 
2794, Cost and Software Data Reporting Plan with the related Resource 
Distribution Table, and DD Form 1921-3, Contractor Business Data 
Report, as the basis for reporting; and
     Require subcontractors, or subcontracted effort if 
subcontractors have not been selected, to comply with the Cost and 
Software Data Reporting requirements.

    This is not a significant regulatory action and therefore was not 
subject to review under section 6(b) of Executive Order 12866, 
Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This is not a 
major rule.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    DoD has prepared an initial regulatory flexibility analysis 
consistent with 5 U.S.C. 603. A copy of the analysis may be obtained 
from the point of contact specified herein. The analysis is summarized 
as follows:
    The objective of the rule is to set forth Cost and Software Data 
Reporting System reporting requirements that are essential for the DoD 
to estimate the cost of current and future weapon systems. The reported 
data will also be very useful in performing contract price analysis, 
comparing prices of similar systems, and for capturing contractor-
provided cost estimates in standard formats to facilitate comparison 
across several contractors. At this time, DoD is unable to estimate the 
number of small entities to which this rule will apply.
    DoD invites comments from small businesses and other interested 
parties on the expected impact of this rule on small entities.
    DoD will also consider comments from small entities concerning the 
existing regulations in subparts affected by this rule in accordance 
with 5 U.S.C. 610. Interested parties must submit such comments 
separately and should cite U.S.C. 601 (DFARS Case 2008-D027) in 
correspondence.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The information collection requirements under this proposed rule 
were previously approved by the Office of Management and Budget, under 
Clearance Number 0704-0188. The requirements of this proposed rule are 
not expected to significantly change the burden hours approved under 
Clearance Number 0704-0188.

the CSDR Manual, DoD 5000.04-M-1, and the Government-approved 
contract CSDR plan, DD Form 2794 and related Resource Distribution 
Table contained in the solicitation. For Contractor Cost and Data 
Reporting (CCDR) application, the description will demonstrate how 
reports are based, to the maximum extent possible, upon actual cost 
transactions and not cost allocations. The description will also 
show how the data from the offeror's accounting system will be 
mapped into the standard reporting categories required in the 
Contractor CCDR data item descriptions. The document shall also 
describe how the offeror segregates recurring and nonrecurring 
costs;
    (2) Provide comments on the adequacy of the CSDR contract plan 
and related Resource Distribution Table contained in the 
solicitation; and
    (3) Submit the DD Form 1921, Cost Data Summary Report, DD Form 
1921-1, Functional Cost-Hour Report, and DD Form 1921-2, Progress 
Curve Report, with its pricing proposal.
    (b) The offeror shall identify the subcontractors or the 
subcontracted effort, if the subcontractors have not been selected, 
to whom the CSDR requirements will apply. This will be accomplished 
by providing comments on the Resource Distribution Table contained 
in the solicitation. The offeror shall be responsible for ensuring 
the selected subcontractors comply with the requirements of the CSDR 
System. The offeror shall also be responsible for notifying the 
Government prior to changes in subcontractor or planned subcontract 
circumstances affecting CSDR compliance.
