Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement; Technical Amendment, 40717 [2010-16908]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 133 / Tuesday, July 13, 2010 / Rules and Regulations making any determination regarding the making of sole-source awards. This is a change to internal operating procedures of the Government with no impact on contractors or offerors. Therefore, an initial regulatory flexibility analysis has not been performed. However, DoD invites comments from small business concerns 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 5 U.S.C. 610 (DFARS Case 2009–D036) in correspondence. C. Paperwork Reduction Act The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the interim rule does not contain any information collection requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C., et seq. jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with RULES2 D. Determination To Issue an Interim Rule A determination has been made under the authority of the Secretary of Defense (DoD) that urgent and compelling circumstances exist to promulgate this interim rule without prior opportunity for public comments pursuant to 41 U.S.C. 418b and FAR 1.501–3(b). This interim rule implements section 814 of the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2010, which prohibits the award of a sole-source task or delivery order that is estimated to exceed $100 million (including all options) unless the head of the agency determines that one of four exceptions applies, and notifies appropriate congressional defense committees (and intelligence activities, if the order concerns intelligence activities) within 30 days of the determination. An interim rule is necessary because the statute became effective upon enactment on October 28, 2009, and it is imperative that DoD contracting officers be aware of additional congressional notification requirements as soon as possible in order to enable them to comply with the law. DoD will consider public comments received in response to this interim rule in the formation of the final rule.
