SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    Every two years, the trade agreements thresholds are adjusted 
according to a pre-determined formula under the agreements. On December 
29, 2009 (74 FR 68907), the United States Trade Representative 
established new procurement thresholds. These thresholds became 
effective on January 1, 2010. The United States Trade Representative 
has specified the following new thresholds:

B. Executive Order 12866

    This is a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was subject 
to review under Section 6(b) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory 
Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is not a major 
rule under 5 U.S.C. 804.

C. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Councils do not expect this interim rule to have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the

[[Page 38690]]

meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., 
because the dollar threshold changes are designed to keep pace with 
inflation and thus maintain the status quo. Therefore, an Initial 
Regulatory Flexibility Analysis has not been performed. The Councils 
invite comments from small business concerns and other interested 
parties on the expected impact of this rule on small entities.
    The Councils will also consider comments from small entities 
concerning the existing regulations in parts affected by this rule in 
accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Interested parties must submit such 
comments separately and should cite 5 U.S.C. 610 (FAC 2005-43, FAR Case 
2009-040) in all correspondence.

D. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does apply; however, these changes to 
the FAR do not impose additional information collection requirements to 
the paperwork burden previously approved under OMB Control Numbers 
9000-0130 (FAR 52.225-4), 9000-0025 (FAR 52.225-6) and 9000-0141 (FAR 
52.225-9, 52.225-11, 52.225-21, and 52.225-23). The interim rule 
affects the prescriptions for use of the certifications. However, there 
is no impact on the estimated burden hours, because the threshold 
changes are in line with inflation and maintain the status quo.

E. Determination To Issue an Interim Rule

    A determination has been made under the authority of the Secretary 
of Defense (DOD), the Administrator of General Services (GSA), and the 
Administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration 
(NASA), that urgent and compelling reasons exist to promulgate this 
interim rule without prior opportunity for public comment. This interim 
rule incorporates increased dollar thresholds for application of the 
World Trade Organization Government Procurement Agreement and the Free 
Trade Agreements, as determined by the United States Trade 
Representative. This action is necessary because the new thresholds 
became effective on January 1, 2010. However, pursuant to 41 U.S.C. 
418b and FAR 1.501-3(b), the Councils will consider public comments 
received in response to this interim rule in the formation of the final 
rule. Absent this regulatory change, this requirement would not be 
incorporated into the FAR and implemented by the acquisition community.
