Background The DOE regulation at 10 CFR part 1023 which implemented DOE’s contract appeals procedures and the Department of Energy Acquisition Regulation (DEAR) Subchapters A, B, and C have outdated sections that need to be updated for consistency with the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals (CBCA) provisions of Section 847 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2006, Public Law 109–163, and provisions of the FAR and the Title 41, chapter 102—Federal Management Regulation, all of which DOE is implementing but are not yet reflected in the DEAR. Today’s proposed rule would update these regulations. DOE is proposing to remove regulations in 10 CFR part 1023 made obsolete by the establishment of the CBCA within the General Services Administration. DOE has already adjusted its internal procedures to address the CBCA jurisdiction. With the proposed changes to Subchapters A, B, and C, the DEAR would conform to the FAR, the Title 41, chapter 101—Federal Property Management Regulation, and the Federal Management Regulation. The objective of this action is to update the existing DEAR to conform it to the FAR. None of these changes are substantive or of a nature to cause any significant expense for DOE or its contractors. Changes are proposed to DEAR parts 901, 902, 903, 904, 906, 907, 908, 909, 911, 914, 915, 916, 917, and 952. No changes are proposed for DEAR parts 905, 910, and 912. II.
