ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: DoD is issuing a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to implement the requirement for contractors to complete Level I antiterrorism awareness training. DATES: Effective February 15, 2019. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Barbara J. Trujillo, telephone 571–372– 6102. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Background DoD published a proposed rule in the Federal Register at 83 FR 42820 on August 24, 2018, to revise the DFARS to implement the antiterrorism training requirements for contractors provided in DoD Instruction (DoDI) O–2000.16, Volume 1, DoD Antiterrorism (AT) Program Implementation: DoD AT Standards (available at http:// www.esd.whs.mil/Directives/issuances/ dodi/). The rule will ensure contractors, who as a condition of contract performance require routine physical access to a Federally-controlled facility or military installation, are aware of the requirement for contractor personnel to complete Level I DoD antiterrorism awareness training. Routine physical access is considered more than intermittent access, such as when a PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 contractor employee is required to obtain a Common Access Card. The training is required within 30 days of requiring access and annually thereafter and must be completed either through DoD-sponsored and certified computer or web-based distance learning instruction, or under the instruction of a qualified Level I antiterrorism awareness instructor. There were no public comments submitted in response to the proposed rule. There are no changes made to the final rule with regard to public comments; however, there are some minor editorial revisions incorporated. The definition of ‘‘military installation’’ at DFARS 204.7201, Definitions, and the clause at 252.204–7004, DoD Antiterrorism Awareness Training for Contractors, is updated to reflect more precisely the statutory definition at 10 U.S.C. 2801(c)(4) to address activities in a foreign country. Additionally, the clause is updated to reflect the current secured weblink of https://jko.jten.mil/ for information and guidance pertaining to the DoD antiterrorism awareness training. These minor editorial updates are administrative and have no effect on the public. II. Applicability to Contracts at or Below the Simplified Acquisition Threshold and for Commercial Items, Including Commercially Available Offthe-Shelf Items This rule creates a new DFARS clause 252.204–7004, Antiterrorism Awareness Training for Contractors, to advise DoD contractors of the requirement for its employees (and those of its subcontractors, if applicable) to complete Level I antiterrorism awareness training within 30 days of requiring access and annually thereafter, if, as a condition of contract performance require routine physical access to a Federally-controlled facility or a military installation. DoD plans to apply this clause to solicitations and contracts below the simplified acquisition threshold and to the procurement of commercial items, including commercially available offthe-shelf items (as defined in Federal Acquisition Regulation 2.101). This is necessary in order to reach as wide an audience as possible to ensure contractor personnel who are required to have routine physical access to a Federally-controlled facility or military installation are aware of this training requirement. 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 E:\FR\FM\15FER1.SGM 15FER1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 32 / Friday, February 15, 2019 / Rules and Regulations 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. khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES IV. Executive Order 13771 This final rule is not an E.O. 13771 regulatory action, because this rule is not significant under E.O. 12866. V. Regulatory Flexibility Act A final regulatory flexibility analysis (FRFA) has been prepared consistent with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq. The FRFA is summarized as follows: This final rule is necessary to implement the requirements of DoD Instruction O–2000.16, Volume 1, DoD Antiterrorism (AT) Program Implementation: DoD AT Standards, to ensure that contractors complete Level I antiterrorism awareness training. The objective of this final rule is to ensure contractor personnel who, as a condition of contract performance, require routine physical access to a Federally-controlled facility or military installation are aware of terrorism threats and the proper responses to threat actions. In recent years, there have been terrorist events directed at Federally-controlled facilities and military installation and all personnel that routinely access those facilities need to be aware of the threat. There were no issues raised by the public in response to the initial regulatory flexibility analysis provided in the proposed rule. It is expected that contracts that contain the clause at Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 52.204–9, Personal Identity Verification of Contractor Personnel, are contracts that would require contractor personnel to have routine physical access to Federally-controlled facilities or military installations. According to data available in the Electronic Data Access system, in fiscal year 2017, DoD awarded 137,106 contracts containing the clause at FAR 52.204–9 to 15,814 businesses, of which 10,837 (68.5 percent) were to small businesses. Common Access Cards (CAC) are issued VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:03 Feb 14, 2019 Jkt 247001 to contractors who require routine physical access to a Federally-controlled facility or military installation. There are currently 507,665 contractors that hold CAC cards. The rule does not impose any reporting or recordkeeping requirements. There are no known alternative approaches that would accomplish the stated objectives. The impact is not expected to be significant, because current contractor employees who hold a CAC have already completed the requisite training and the cost of training new contractor personnel is at the expense of the Department. The time allotted for the training is approximately two hours per year. The training will provide safety awareness and precautionary measures that will benefit contractor personnel requiring routine physical access to a Federally-controlled facilities or military installations. This awareness not only benefits the contractor personnel, but also DoD civilians, military, and its assets. VI. Paperwork Reduction Act The rule does not contain any 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). List of Subjects in 48 CFR Parts 204, 212, and 252 Government procurement. Jennifer Lee Hawes, Regulatory Control Officer, Defense Acquisition Regulations System.

Background DoD published a proposed rule in the Federal Register at 83 FR 54698 on October 31, 2018, to implement sections 221 and 861 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 (Pub. L. 115–91). Section 221 amends 10 U.S.C. 2302(2)(B) to allow for an expanded application of other competitive procedures by replacing the words ‘‘basic research’’ with ‘‘science and technology’’. ‘‘Competitive procedures’’ were defined in 10 U.S.C. 2302(2)(B) to include ‘‘the competitive selection for award of basic research proposals resulting from a general solicitation, and the peer review or scientific review (as appropriate) of such proposals.’’ Changing the words ‘‘basic research’’ to ‘‘science and technology’’ expands the meaning of other competitive procedures to apply to ‘‘advanced technology development’’ and ‘‘advanced component development and prototypes’’ research proposals, in addition to ‘‘basic research’’ and ‘‘applied research’’ proposals. One of the solicitation methods for research and development proposals, a broad agency announcement (BAA), is defined PO 00000 Frm 00058 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) as ‘‘a general announcement of an agency’s research interest including criteria for selecting proposals and soliciting the participation of all offerors capable of satisfying the Government’s needs.’’ Section 221 permits the use of BAAs for competitive selection of science and technology proposals by authorizing the use of the competitive procedures at 10 U.S.C. 2302(2)(B) that result from a general solicitation and peer or scientific review of such proposals—a key element of the BAA process. Section 861 amends 10 U.S.C. 2302e to allow for an extended term limit and increased dollar threshold under the contract authority for advanced development of initial or additional prototype units awarded from a competitive selection, as specified in 10 U.S.C. 2302(2)(B). The statutory term limit extends from 12 months to 2 years and the dollar threshold increases from $20 million to $100 million in fiscal year 2017 constant dollars (10 U.S.C. 2302e). Section 861 also amends 10 U.S.C. 2302e to repeal the obsolete authority implemented by section 819 of the NDAA for FY 2010 (Pub. L. 111–84), thereby eliminating the expiration date of the authority. One respondent submitted a public comment on the proposed rule. II. Discussion and Analysis DoD reviewed the public comment in the development of the final rule. A discussion of the comment received and any changes made to the rule is provided as follows: A. Summary of Significant Changes DoD did not make any changes to the proposed rule as a result of the public comment. B. Analysis of Public Comment Comment: The respondent recommended the proposed rule update 213.106–1(b) to address documentation requirements related to competition for actions not exceeding the simplified acquisition threshold (SAT). Response: Since there is no DFARS 213.106–1(b) section, DoD reviewed FAR 13.106–1(b), Soliciting Competition, which allows contracting officers to solicit from a single source, for purchases not exceeding the SAT, if the contracting officer determines that circumstances deem only one source reasonably available. This rule relates to soliciting proposals using other competitive procedures (such as a broad agency announcement) and is not related to solicitations of a single source for purchases not exceeding the SAT; E:\FR\FM\15FER1.SGM 15FER1

Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement: Antiterrorism 
Training Requirements for Contractors (DFARS Case 2017-D034)

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 implement the requirement 
for contractors to complete Level I antiterrorism awareness training.

DATES: Effective February 15, 2019.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Barbara J. Trujillo, telephone 
571-372-6102.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    DoD published a proposed rule in the Federal Register at 83 FR 
42820 on August 24, 2018, to revise the DFARS to implement the 
antiterrorism training requirements for contractors provided in DoD 
Instruction (DoDI) O-2000.16, Volume 1, DoD Antiterrorism (AT) Program 
Implementation: DoD AT Standards (available at http://www.esd.whs.mil/Directives/issuances/dodi/). The rule will ensure contractors, who as a 
condition of contract performance require routine physical access to a 
Federally-controlled facility or military installation, are aware of 
the requirement for contractor personnel to complete Level I DoD 
antiterrorism awareness training. Routine physical access is considered 
more than intermittent access, such as when a contractor employee is 
required to obtain a Common Access Card. The training is required 
within 30 days of requiring access and annually thereafter and must be 
completed either through DoD-sponsored and certified computer or web-
based distance learning instruction, or under the instruction of a 
qualified Level I antiterrorism awareness instructor.
    There were no public comments submitted in response to the proposed 
rule. There are no changes made to the final rule with regard to public 
comments; however, there are some minor editorial revisions 
incorporated. The definition of ``military installation'' at DFARS 
204.7201, Definitions, and the clause at 252.204-7004, DoD 
Antiterrorism Awareness Training for Contractors, is updated to reflect 
more precisely the statutory definition at 10 U.S.C. 2801(c)(4) to 
address activities in a foreign country. Additionally, the clause is 
updated to reflect the current secured weblink of https://jko.jten.mil/ 
for information and guidance pertaining to the DoD antiterrorism 
awareness training. These minor editorial updates are administrative 
and have no effect on the public.

II. Applicability to Contracts at or Below the Simplified Acquisition 
Threshold and for Commercial Items, Including Commercially Available 
Off-the-Shelf Items

    This rule creates a new DFARS clause 252.204-7004, Antiterrorism 
Awareness Training for Contractors, to advise DoD contractors of the 
requirement for its employees (and those of its subcontractors, if 
applicable) to complete Level I antiterrorism awareness training within 
30 days of requiring access and annually thereafter, if, as a condition 
of contract performance require routine physical access to a Federally-
controlled facility or a military installation. DoD plans to apply this 
clause to solicitations and contracts below the simplified acquisition 
threshold and to the procurement of commercial items, including 
commercially available off-the-shelf items (as defined in Federal 
Acquisition Regulation 2.101). This is necessary in order to reach as 
wide an audience as possible to ensure contractor personnel who are 
required to have routine physical access to a Federally-controlled 
facility or military installation are aware of this training 
requirement.

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. Executive Order 13771

    This final rule is not an E.O. 13771 regulatory action, because 
this rule is not significant under E.O. 12866.

V. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    A final regulatory flexibility analysis (FRFA) has been prepared 
consistent with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq. 
The FRFA is summarized as follows:
    This final rule is necessary to implement the requirements of DoD 
Instruction O-2000.16, Volume 1, DoD Antiterrorism (AT) Program 
Implementation: DoD AT Standards, to ensure that contractors complete 
Level I antiterrorism awareness training. The objective of this final 
rule is to ensure contractor personnel who, as a condition of contract 
performance, require routine physical access to a Federally-controlled 
facility or military installation are aware of terrorism threats and 
the proper responses to threat actions. In recent years, there have 
been terrorist events directed at Federally-controlled facilities and 
military installation and all personnel that routinely access those 
facilities need to be aware of the threat.
    There were no issues raised by the public in response to the 
initial regulatory flexibility analysis provided in the proposed rule.
    It is expected that contracts that contain the clause at Federal 
Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 52.204-9, Personal Identity Verification 
of Contractor Personnel, are contracts that would require contractor 
personnel to have routine physical access to Federally-controlled 
facilities or military installations. According to data available in 
the Electronic Data Access system, in fiscal year 2017, DoD awarded 
137,106 contracts containing the clause at FAR 52.204-9 to 15,814 
businesses, of which 10,837 (68.5 percent) were to small businesses. 
Common Access Cards (CAC) are issued to contractors who require routine 
physical access to a Federally-controlled facility or military 
installation. There are currently 507,665 contractors that hold CAC 
cards.
    The rule does not impose any reporting or recordkeeping 
requirements.
    There are no known alternative approaches that would accomplish the 
stated objectives. The impact is not expected to be significant, 
because current contractor employees who hold a CAC have already 
completed the requisite training and the cost of training new 
contractor personnel is at the expense of the Department. The time 
allotted for the training is approximately two hours per year. The 
training will provide safety awareness and precautionary measures that 
will benefit contractor personnel requiring routine physical access to 
a Federally-controlled facilities or military installations. This 
awareness not only benefits the contractor personnel, but also DoD 
civilians, military, and its assets.

VI. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The rule does not contain any 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).
