Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement: Extension of Supply Chain Risk Management Authority (DFARS Case 2018-D072), 4368-4370 [2019-02529]

Download as PDF 4368 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 32 / Friday, February 15, 2019 / Rules and Regulations DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE This final rule is an E.O. 13771 regulatory action, because this rule is not significant under E.O. 12866. statute. DoD considers the approach described in the rule to be the most practical and beneficial for both Government and industry. VI. Regulatory Flexibility Act VII. Paperwork Reduction Act 48 CFR Parts 212, 215, 239, and 252 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 implements section 875(c) of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 (Pub. L. 114–328). The objective of this rule is to require the use of FAR 52.211–7, Alternatives to Government-Unique Standards, in DoD solicitations that include military or Government-unique specifications and standards. This will encourage and permit offerors to propose alternatives to Government-unique standards by using an existing FAR provision. The legal basis for this rule is section 875(c) of the NDAA for FY 2017. There were no significant issues raised by the public in response to the initial regulatory flexibility analysis. Based on Federal Procurement Data System data for Product Service Code 5342 (hardware, weapon systems), this rule could potentially apply to approximately 710 unique entities, of which 565 are small businesses. This is based on the number of DoD contract awards in FY 2017. However, of that total, and given the DoD policy of discouraging the use of military specifications and standards in solicitations, this rule would likely impact no more than 40 offerors or potential contractors (the approximate number of DoD contractors involved in major weapons systems). Accordingly, DoD estimates that this rule will have limited impact. Given the fact that some small number of DoD solicitations may include a military or Governmentunique specification or standard generally limited to those involving a major weapons system, this rule provides a means for offerors to propose alternatives on a given solicitation. This rule contains reporting and recordkeeping requirements for those entities that, in response to a DoD solicitation containing military or Government-unique standards, wish to propose voluntary consensus standards that meet the Government’s requirements as alternatives to the Government-unique standards. The professional skill sets required are those of mid-level administrative personnel. There are no known significant alternative approaches to the rule that would meet the requirements of the The Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35) applies. The rule contains information collection requirements. OMB has cleared this information collection requirement under OMB control number 9000–0153, titled, OMB Circular A–119; FAR Sections Affected: 52.211–7 and 53.105.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: DoD is issuing a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to implement a section of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019. DATES: Effective February 15, 2019. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Kimberly R. Ziegler, telephone 571– 372–6095. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Background DoD is amending the DFARS to implement section 881 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 (Pub. L. 115–232). Section 881 codifies the authority for information relating to supply chain risk at 10 U.S.C. 2339a and repeals the sunset date at sections 806(g) of the NDAA for FY 2011 (Pub. L. 111–383), as modified by section 806(a) of the NDAA for FY 2013 (Pub. L. 112–239), making the authority permanent. DoD published a final rule (DFARS Case 2012–D050) in the Federal Register at 80 FR 67243 on October 30, 2015, to implement section 806 of the NDAA for FY 2011, as amended by section 806 of the NDAA for FY 2013 (Pub. L. 112–239). The objective of the rule was to minimize the potential risk for supplies and services purchased by DoD to maliciously degrade the integrity and operation of sensitive information technology systems. The rule implemented the use of supply chain risk as an evaluation factor in information technology procurements for services or supplies as a covered system, as a part of a covered system, or in support of a covered system. DFARS provision 252.239–7017, Notice of Supply Chain Risk, and DFARS clause 252.239–7018, Supply Chain Risk, were added to inform contractors of the requirement to mitigate supply chain risk in the provision of supplies and E:\FR\FM\15FER1.SGM 15FER1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 32 / Friday, February 15, 2019 / Rules and Regulations services to the Government and other statutory authorities afforded to the Government under section 806. Section 881 of the NDAA for FY 2019 codified this authority at 10 U.S.C. 2339a and removed the September 30, 2018, sunset date. This final rule removes the sunset date at DFARS 239.7300(b) and changes numerous statutory citations from section 806 of Public Law 111–383 to 10 U.S.C. 2339a. This rule makes no change to the authority for information relating to supply chain risk currently implemented in the DFARS, other than removing the sunset date, updating the statutory citations, and the following minor editorial changes: • Corrects the reference to 44 U.S.C. 3552(b) in the definition of ‘‘covered system.’’ • Replaces the description of a national security system with the defined term ‘‘covered system’’ in the definition of ‘‘supply chain risk.’’ • Changes ‘‘Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics’’ to ‘‘Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment.’’ khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES II. Publication of This Final Rule for Public Comment Is Not Required by Statute The statute that applies to the publication of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) is 41 U.S.C. 1707 entitled ‘‘Publication of Proposed Regulations.’’ Paragraph (a)(1) of the statute requires that a procurement policy, regulation, procedure or form (including an amendment or modification thereof) must be published for public comment if it relates to the expenditure of appropriated funds, and has either a significant effect beyond the internal operating procedures of the agency issuing the policy, regulation, procedure, or form, or has a significant cost or administrative impact on contractors or offerors. This final rule is not required to be published for public comment, because this rule merely removes the sunset date of the existing regulation, making it permanent, and replaces the obsolete statutory citations with the new 10 U.S.C. 2339a reference. III. Applicability to Contracts at or Below the Simplified Acquisition Threshold and for Commercial Items, Including Commercially Available Offthe-Shelf Items This rule only removes the sunset date from DFARS 239.7300(b) and updates the statutory citations to 10 U.S.C. 2339a, wherever necessary. The rule continues to prescribe the associated clauses to contracts at or VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:03 Feb 14, 2019 Jkt 247001 below the simplified acquisition threshold and for commercial items, including commercially available offthe-shelf items. PART 212—ACQUISITION OF COMMERCIAL ITEMS IV. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 ■ Executive Orders (E.O.) 12866 and E.O. 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. V. Executive Order 13771 This final rule is not an E.O. 13771 regulatory action, because this rule is not a significant under E.O. 12866. VI. Regulatory Flexibility Act Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment are not required to be given for this rule under 41 U.S.C. 1707(a)(1) (see section II. of this preamble), the analytical requirement of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) are not applicable. Accordingly, no regulatory flexibility analysis is required, and none has been prepared. VII. 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).

Applicability to Contracts at or Below the Simplified Acquisition Threshold and for Commercial Items, including Commercially Available OffThe-Shelf Items This rule does not create any new provisions or clauses or impose any new requirements. The rule merely consolidates existing instructions regarding notifications of transportation of supplies by sea into a single DFARS clause, 252.247–7023, which will continue to apply to contracts for commercial and commercially available Off-the-shelf items, as well as contracts at or below the simplified acquisition threshold.

This rule is not a major rule as defined at 5 U.S.C. 804(2). 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: DoD is amending DFARS clause 252.247–7023, Transportation of Supplies by Sea, to include the instructions currently specified in DFARS clause 252.247–7024, Notification of Supplies by Sea, and then removing DFARS clause 252.247– 7024 from the DFARS. The objective of this rule is to streamline the instructions to contractors pertaining to the transportation of supplies by sea. The combination of these DFARS clauses supports a recommendation from the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force. No public comments were received in response to the initial regulatory flexibility analysis. Based on fiscal year 2016 data from the Federal Procurement Data System, the Government issued approximately 83,000 contract actions that included DFARS clause 252.247–7023. Of the 83,000 contract actions, approximately 39,000 awards were made to 15,000 unique small businesses entities. This rule does not include any new reporting, recordkeeping, or other compliance requirements for small businesses. There are no known significant alternative approaches to the rule that would meet the proposed objectives. E:\FR\FM\15FER1.SGM 15FER1

Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement: Extension of 
Supply Chain Risk Management Authority (DFARS Case 2018-D072)

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 a section of the 
National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019.

DATES: Effective February 15, 2019.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Kimberly R. Ziegler, telephone 
571-372-6095.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    DoD is amending the DFARS to implement section 881 of the National 
Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 (Pub. L. 
115-232). Section 881 codifies the authority for information relating 
to supply chain risk at 10 U.S.C. 2339a and repeals the sunset date at 
sections 806(g) of the NDAA for FY 2011 (Pub. L. 111-383), as modified 
by section 806(a) of the NDAA for FY 2013 (Pub. L. 112-239), making the 
authority permanent.
    DoD published a final rule (DFARS Case 2012-D050) in the Federal 
Register at 80 FR 67243 on October 30, 2015, to implement section 806 
of the NDAA for FY 2011, as amended by section 806 of the NDAA for FY 
2013 (Pub. L. 112-239). The objective of the rule was to minimize the 
potential risk for supplies and services purchased by DoD to 
maliciously degrade the integrity and operation of sensitive 
information technology systems. The rule implemented the use of supply 
chain risk as an evaluation factor in information technology 
procurements for services or supplies as a covered system, as a part of 
a covered system, or in support of a covered system. DFARS provision 
252.239-7017, Notice of Supply Chain Risk, and DFARS clause 252.239-
7018, Supply Chain Risk, were added to inform contractors of the 
requirement to mitigate supply chain risk in the provision of supplies 
and

[[Page 4369]]

services to the Government and other statutory authorities afforded to 
the Government under section 806.
    Section 881 of the NDAA for FY 2019 codified this authority at 10 
U.S.C. 2339a and removed the September 30, 2018, sunset date. This 
final rule removes the sunset date at DFARS 239.7300(b) and changes 
numerous statutory citations from section 806 of Public Law 111-383 to 
10 U.S.C. 2339a. This rule makes no change to the authority for 
information relating to supply chain risk currently implemented in the 
DFARS, other than removing the sunset date, updating the statutory 
citations, and the following minor editorial changes:
     Corrects the reference to 44 U.S.C. 3552(b) in the 
definition of ``covered system.''
     Replaces the description of a national security system 
with the defined term ``covered system'' in the definition of ``supply 
chain risk.''
     Changes ``Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, 
Technology, and Logistics'' to ``Under Secretary of Defense for 
Acquisition and Sustainment.''

II. Publication of This Final Rule for Public Comment Is Not Required 
by Statute

    The statute that applies to the publication of the Federal 
Acquisition Regulation (FAR) is 41 U.S.C. 1707 entitled ``Publication 
of Proposed Regulations.'' Paragraph (a)(1) of the statute requires 
that a procurement policy, regulation, procedure or form (including an 
amendment or modification thereof) must be published for public comment 
if it relates to the expenditure of appropriated funds, and has either 
a significant effect beyond the internal operating procedures of the 
agency issuing the policy, regulation, procedure, or form, or has a 
significant cost or administrative impact on contractors or offerors. 
This final rule is not required to be published for public comment, 
because this rule merely removes the sunset date of the existing 
regulation, making it permanent, and replaces the obsolete statutory 
citations with the new 10 U.S.C. 2339a reference.

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

    This rule only removes the sunset date from DFARS 239.7300(b) and 
updates the statutory citations to 10 U.S.C. 2339a, wherever necessary. 
The rule continues to prescribe the associated clauses to contracts at 
or below the simplified acquisition threshold and for commercial items, 
including commercially available off-the-shelf items.

IV. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563

    Executive Orders (E.O.) 12866 and E.O. 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.

V. Executive Order 13771

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

VI. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for 
public comment are not required to be given for this rule under 41 
U.S.C. 1707(a)(1) (see section II. of this preamble), the analytical 
requirement of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) 
are not applicable. Accordingly, no regulatory flexibility analysis is 
required, and none has been prepared.

VII. 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).
