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.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: DoD is issuing a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to identify the Wide Area WorkFlow Energy Receiving Report as the electronic equivalent of the DD Form 250, Material Inspection and Receiving Report, for overland shipments and the DD Form 250–1, Tanker/Barge Material Inspection And Receiving Report, for waterborne shipments.

Background DoD published a proposed rule in the Federal Register at 79 FR 73539 on December 11, 2014, to amend Appendix F of the DFARS to identify the Wide Area WorkFlow (WAWF) Energy Receiving Report as the electronic equivalent of the paper DD Form 250 for overland shipments and the DD Form 250–1 for waterborne shipments. DFARS 232.7002, Policy, requires contractors to submit payment and receiving reports in electronic form, and the accepted electronic form identified in DFARS 232.7003, Procedures, is WAWF. In addition, the clause at DFARS 252.232–7003, Electronic Submission of Payment Requests and Receiving Reports, requires payment requests and receiving reports using WAWF in nearly all cases. II. Discussion and Analysis There were no public comments submitted in response to the proposed VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:03 May 22, 2015 Jkt 235001 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: This rule amends the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) Appendix F to identify the Wide Area WorkFlow (WAWF) Energy Receiving Report as the electronic equivalent of the DD Form 250, Material Inspection and Receiving Report, for overland shipments and the DD Form 250–1, Tanker/Barge Material Inspection and Receiving Report, for waterborne shipments. DFARS 232.7002, Policy, requires contractors to submit payment and receiving reports in electronic form, and the accepted electronic form is WAWF. DFARS 232.7003, Procedures, identifies WAWF as the accepted electronic form. In addition, the clause at DFARS 252.232–7003, Electronic Submission of Payment Requests and Receiving Reports, requires payment requests and receiving reports using WAWF in nearly all cases. No comments were received from the public regarding the initial regulatory flexibility analysis. DoD does not expect this rule to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq. The rule affects all DoD contractors who are not exempt from using WAWF. Exempt classes of contracts are those that are listed under the seven categories of contracts at DFARS 232.7002, Policy. The projected recordkeeping is limited to that required to properly record shipping and receiving PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 29983 information under Government contracts. Preparation of these records requires clerical and analytical skills to create the documents and input them into the electronic WAWF system. There is no significant economic impact on small entities. V. Paperwork Reduction Act The rule contains information collection requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C chapter 35). However, these changes to the DFARS do not impose additional information collection requirements to the paperwork burden previously approved under OMB Control Number 0704–0248, entitled Material Inspection and Receiving Report.

Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement: Appendix F--
Energy Receiving Reports (DFARS Case 2014-D024)

AGENCY: Defense Acquisition Regulations System, Department of Defense 
(DoD).

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: DoD is issuing a final rule amending the Defense Federal 
Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to identify the Wide Area 
WorkFlow Energy Receiving Report as the electronic equivalent of the DD 
Form 250, Material Inspection and Receiving Report, for overland 
shipments and the DD Form 250-1, Tanker/Barge Material Inspection And 
Receiving Report, for waterborne shipments.

DATES: Effective May 26, 2015.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jennifer Johnson, telephone 571-372-
6176.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    DoD published a proposed rule in the Federal Register at 79 FR 
73539 on December 11, 2014, to amend Appendix F of the DFARS to 
identify the Wide Area WorkFlow (WAWF) Energy Receiving Report as the 
electronic equivalent of the paper DD Form 250 for overland shipments 
and the DD Form 250-1 for waterborne shipments. DFARS 232.7002, Policy, 
requires contractors to submit payment and receiving reports in 
electronic form, and the accepted electronic form identified in DFARS 
232.7003, Procedures, is WAWF. In addition, the clause at DFARS 
252.232-7003, Electronic Submission of Payment Requests and Receiving 
Reports, requires payment requests and receiving reports using WAWF in 
nearly all cases.

II. Discussion and Analysis

    There were no public comments submitted in response to the proposed 
rule. No changes have been made from the proposed rule.

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:
    This rule amends the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation 
Supplement (DFARS) Appendix F to identify the Wide Area WorkFlow (WAWF) 
Energy Receiving Report as the electronic equivalent of the DD Form 
250, Material Inspection and Receiving Report, for overland shipments 
and the DD Form 250-1, Tanker/Barge Material Inspection and Receiving 
Report, for waterborne shipments.
    DFARS 232.7002, Policy, requires contractors to submit payment and 
receiving reports in electronic form, and the accepted electronic form 
is WAWF. DFARS 232.7003, Procedures, identifies WAWF as the accepted 
electronic form. In addition, the clause at DFARS 252.232-7003, 
Electronic Submission of Payment Requests and Receiving Reports, 
requires payment requests and receiving reports using WAWF in nearly 
all cases.
    No comments were received from the public regarding the initial 
regulatory flexibility analysis.
    DoD does not expect this rule to have a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq. The rule affects all 
DoD contractors who are not exempt from using WAWF. Exempt classes of 
contracts are those that are listed under the seven categories of 
contracts at DFARS 232.7002, Policy.
    The projected recordkeeping is limited to that required to properly 
record shipping and receiving information under Government contracts. 
Preparation of these records requires clerical and analytical skills to 
create the documents and input them into the electronic WAWF system.
    There is no significant economic impact on small entities.

V. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The rule contains information collection requirements that require 
the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (44 U.S.C chapter 35). However, these changes to the 
DFARS do not impose additional information collection requirements to 
the paperwork burden previously approved under OMB Control Number 0704-
0248, entitled Material Inspection and Receiving Report.
