these item summaries. FAC 2005-92 amends the FAR as follows:

Item I--Public Disclosure of Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Reduction 
Goals--Representation (FAR Case 2015-024)

    This final rule amends the FAR to establish an annual 
representation requirement to indicate whether or not and where 
contractors publicly disclose greenhouse gas emissions and greenhouse 
gas emission reduction goals or targets. This representation is 
optional for contractors that received less than $7.5 million in 
contract awards from the Government during the previous Federal fiscal 
year. The information obtained from these

[[Page 83105]]

representations will assist agencies in developing strategies to engage 
with contractors to reduce supply chain emissions, as directed in the 
Executive Order 13693, Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next 
Decade.

Item II--Removal of Regulations Relating to Telegraphic Communication 
(FAR Case 2015-035)

    This rule amends the FAR to delete the use of ``telegram,'' 
``telegraph,'' and related terms. The objective is to delete reference 
to obsolete technologies no longer in use and replace with references 
to electronic communications. In addition, conforming changes are made 
covering expedited notice of termination and change orders.
    The rule is not anticipated to have a significant economic impact 
on small business entities, as the rule provides recognition of current 
options for transmitting documents between the Government and 
contractors. The rule also revises the means of disseminating contract 
termination documents between the Government and contractors; however, 
this change only affects the Government's responsibility for 
transmitting termination notices.

Item III--Technical Amendments

    Editorial changes are made at FAR 2.101, 7.105, 19.1506, 34.000,
