ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: Therefore, 48 CFR parts 225 and 252 are amended as follows: ■ 1. The authority citation for 48 CFR parts 225 and 252 continues to read as follows: Authority: 41 U.S.C. 1303 and 48 CFR chapter 1. 252.245–7004 Disposal. DoD has adopted as final, without change, an interim rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to remove language based on a statute that provided the underlying SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 authority for DoD’s Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB) program. This action is necessary because the statute has expired. DATES: Effective March 26, 2015. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Judith S. Rubinstein, telephone 571– 372–6093. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DoD published an interim rule in the Federal Register at 79 FR 61579 on October 14, 2014, to delete those DFARS sections that were based on 10 U.S.C. 2323, which has expired. 10 U.S.C. 2323 provided the underlying statutory authority for DoD’s Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB) program, including the establishment of a specific goal within the overall 5 percent SDB goal for the award of prime contracts and subcontracts to historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and minority institutions (MIs). Because of the expiration of this authority, all DFARS sections based on this authority were deleted by the interim rule. II. Discussion and Analysis There were no public comments submitted in response to the interim rule. The interim rule has been converted to a final rule, without change. III. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 Executive Orders (E.O.s) 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). E.O. 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not subject to review under section 6(b) of E.O. 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804. IV. Regulatory Flexibility Act A final regulatory flexibility analysis has been prepared consistent with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., and is summarized as follows: The objective of this rule is to amend the DFARS to remove or revise clauses, provisions, and guidance conditioned on section 1207 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 1987, Public Law E:\FR\FM\26MRR1.SGM 26MRR1
