ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: DoD is issuing a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to remove several transportation-related provisions and clauses, as well as a clause reference, that are no longer necessary. DATES: Effective June 28, 2019. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Carrie Moore, telephone 571–372–6093. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Background The following DFARS provisions and clauses are included in solicitations and contracts for services to prepare personal property for movement or storage, or perform intra-city of intraarea movement of personal property— • 252.247–7008, Evaluation of Bids, which provides offerors with information on how the Government will evaluate bids received in response to a solicitation; • 252.247–7009, Award, which provides offerors with the basis upon which the Government will make a contract award; • 252.247–7010, Scope of Contract, which identifies the scope of the contractor’s responsibility to provide supplies and services under the contract; • 252.247–7011, Period of Contract, which identifies the period of performance for the contract and the timeframes in which new orders may be placed or completed when the contract is close to its expiration date. • 252.247–7013, Contract Areas of Performance, which identifies the area of performance for the contract; • 252.247–7017, Erroneous Shipments, which identifies procedures for the contractor to follow in the event an incorrect shipment occurs under the contract; • 252.247–7018, Subcontracting, which requires the contractor to obtain E:\FR\FM\28JNR1.SGM 28JNR1 khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 125 / Friday, June 28, 2019 / Rules and Regulations written approval from the Government prior to subcontracting work under the contract; and, • 252.247–7019, Drayage, which identifies the scope and applicable schedule for inbound and outbound drayage that occurs in connection with the contract. In reviewing these provisions and clauses, along with current practices for acquiring these transportation services, DoD subject matter experts in transportation services advised that the information contained in these provisions and clauses is specific to the requirement and/or within the contracting officer’s discretion. When applicable, the information more appropriately belongs in solicitation instructions or a performance work statement to ensure offerors and contractors receive cohesive set of instructions and performance requirements. As such, these provisions and clauses are no longer necessary and can be removed. DFARS provision 252.247–7022, Representation of Extent of Transportation By Sea, is included in solicitations and requires an offeror to represent whether it anticipates that supplies will or will not be transported by sea in performance of the contract. The provision advises offerors that if a negative response is received to the representation, DFARS clause 252.247– 7024 will be included in the subsequent contract. On February 15, 2019, DoD published a final rule (84 FR 4370) to repeal DFARS clause 252.247–7024, Notification of Transportation By Sea, and incorporate the text of the clause into DFARS clause 252.247–7023, Transportation of Supplies By Sea. As DFARS 252.247–7024 has been repealed, the DFARS provision 252.247–7022 is being revised to remove the reference to the repealed clause. The removal of this DFARS text supports a recommendation from the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force. On February 24, 2017, the President signed Executive Order (E.O.) 13777, ‘‘Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda,’’ which established a Federal policy ‘‘to alleviate unnecessary regulatory burdens’’ on the American people. In accordance with E.O. 13777, DoD established a Regulatory Reform Task Force to review and validate DoD regulations, including the DFARS. A public notice of the establishment of the DFARS Subgroup to the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force, for the purpose of reviewing DFARS provisions and clauses, was published in the Federal Register at 82 FR 35741 on August 1, 2017, and requested public input. No public comments were received on VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:17 Jun 27, 2019 Jkt 247001 these provisions and clauses. The DoD Task Force reviewed the requirements of the transportation related DFARS provisions and clauses and determined that the DFARS coverage was unnecessary and recommended removal. II. Applicability to Contracts at or Below the Simplified Acquisition Threshold and for Commercial Items, Including Commercially Available Offthe-Shelf Items This rule only removes obsolete transportation related DFARS provisions and clauses. The rule does not impose any new requirements on contracts at or below the simplified acquisition threshold and for commercial items, including commercially available off-the-shelf items. III. 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 Office of Federal Procurement Policy statute (codified at title 41 of the United States Code). Specifically, 41 U.S.C. 1707(a)(1) 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 DoD is not issuing a new regulation; rather, this rule is merely removing obsolete provisions and clauses from the DFARS and making one editorial change to a clause to remove a reference to an obsolete clause. IV. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 Executive Order (E.O.) 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review; and E.O. 13563, Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review, 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 PO 00000 Frm 00095 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 30951 flexibility. The Office of Management and Budget, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, has determined that this is not a significant regulatory action as defined under section 3(f) of E.O. 12866 and, therefore, was not subject to review under section 6(b). This rule is not a major rule as defined at 5 U.S.C. 804(2). V. Executive Order 13771 This rule is not subject to Executive Order (E.O.) 13771, because this rule is not a significant regulatory action 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 III. of this preamble), the analytical requirements 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).

Background DoD is amending the DFARS to remove DFARS clause 252.247–7001, Price Adjustment, and the associated clause prescription at DFARS 247.270– 4. Included in solicitations and contracts for stevedoring services when using sealed bidding, this clause: Requires a contractor to warrant that the prices in the contract apply to, based upon, and exclude certain criteria; requires a contractor to notify the Government of any changes to collective bargaining agreements that apply to its direct labor employees and will impact the contractor’s cost to perform; limits the upward adjustment of prices to a stated percentage and clarifies the terms and process for making such adjustments; and, requires a contractor to provide a statement pertaining to rates of pay for labor with its final invoice under the contract. DoD subject matter experts on the acquisition of stevedoring services across DoD advise that sealed bidding is not used to procure such services and, as such, this clause is not included in stevedoring contracts. Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) clauses 52.222–41, Service Contract Labor Standards; 52.222–43, Fair Labor Standards Act and Service Contract Labor Standards—Price Adjustment (Multiple Year and Option Contracts); and 52.222–44, Fair Labor Standards Act and Service Contract Labor Standards—Price Adjustment; as well as DFARS clause 252.247–7002, Revision PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 of Prices, adequately address price adjustments resulting from changes in wage rates or benefits and are currently included in stevedoring contracts, as applicable. Since DFARS clause 252.247–7001 is not used and other FAR and DFARS clauses can be used to provide the necessary information to contractors performing on stevedoring contracts, this DFARS clause is no longer necessary and can be removed. The removal of this DFARS text supports a recommendation from the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force. On February 24, 2017, the President signed Executive Order (E.O.) 13777, ‘‘Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda,’’ which established a Federal policy ‘‘to alleviate unnecessary regulatory burdens’’ on the American people. In accordance with E.O. 13777, DoD established a Regulatory Reform Task Force to review and validate DoD regulations, including the DFARS.

Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement: Repeal of 
Transportation Related DFARS Provisions and Clauses (DFARS Case 2019-
D020)

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 remove several 
transportation-related provisions and clauses, as well as a clause 
reference, that are no longer necessary.

DATES: Effective June 28, 2019.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Carrie Moore, telephone 571-372-
6093.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    The following DFARS provisions and clauses are included in 
solicitations and contracts for services to prepare personal property 
for movement or storage, or perform intra-city of intra-area movement 
of personal property--
     252.247-7008, Evaluation of Bids, which provides offerors 
with information on how the Government will evaluate bids received in 
response to a solicitation;
     252.247-7009, Award, which provides offerors with the 
basis upon which the Government will make a contract award;
     252.247-7010, Scope of Contract, which identifies the 
scope of the contractor's responsibility to provide supplies and 
services under the contract;
     252.247-7011, Period of Contract, which identifies the 
period of performance for the contract and the timeframes in which new 
orders may be placed or completed when the contract is close to its 
expiration date.
     252.247-7013, Contract Areas of Performance, which 
identifies the area of performance for the contract;
     252.247-7017, Erroneous Shipments, which identifies 
procedures for the contractor to follow in the event an incorrect 
shipment occurs under the contract;
     252.247-7018, Subcontracting, which requires the 
contractor to obtain

[[Page 30951]]

written approval from the Government prior to subcontracting work under 
the contract; and,
     252.247-7019, Drayage, which identifies the scope and 
applicable schedule for inbound and outbound drayage that occurs in 
connection with the contract.
    In reviewing these provisions and clauses, along with current 
practices for acquiring these transportation services, DoD subject 
matter experts in transportation services advised that the information 
contained in these provisions and clauses is specific to the 
requirement and/or within the contracting officer's discretion. When 
applicable, the information more appropriately belongs in solicitation 
instructions or a performance work statement to ensure offerors and 
contractors receive cohesive set of instructions and performance 
requirements. As such, these provisions and clauses are no longer 
necessary and can be removed.
    DFARS provision 252.247-7022, Representation of Extent of 
Transportation By Sea, is included in solicitations and requires an 
offeror to represent whether it anticipates that supplies will or will 
not be transported by sea in performance of the contract. The provision 
advises offerors that if a negative response is received to the 
representation, DFARS clause 252.247-7024 will be included in the 
subsequent contract. On February 15, 2019, DoD published a final rule 
(84 FR 4370) to repeal DFARS clause 252.247-7024, Notification of 
Transportation By Sea, and incorporate the text of the clause into 
DFARS clause 252.247-7023, Transportation of Supplies By Sea. As DFARS 
252.247-7024 has been repealed, the DFARS provision 252.247-7022 is 
being revised to remove the reference to the repealed clause.
    The removal of this DFARS text supports a recommendation from the 
DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force. On February 24, 2017, the President 
signed Executive Order (E.O.) 13777, ``Enforcing the Regulatory Reform 
Agenda,'' which established a Federal policy ``to alleviate unnecessary 
regulatory burdens'' on the American people. In accordance with E.O. 
13777, DoD established a Regulatory Reform Task Force to review and 
validate DoD regulations, including the DFARS. A public notice of the 
establishment of the DFARS Subgroup to the DoD Regulatory Reform Task 
Force, for the purpose of reviewing DFARS provisions and clauses, was 
published in the Federal Register at 82 FR 35741 on August 1, 2017, and 
requested public input. No public comments were received on these 
provisions and clauses. The DoD Task Force reviewed the requirements of 
the transportation related DFARS provisions and clauses and determined 
that the DFARS coverage was unnecessary and recommended removal.

II. 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 obsolete transportation related DFARS 
provisions and clauses. The rule does not impose any new requirements 
on contracts at or below the simplified acquisition threshold and for 
commercial items, including commercially available off-the-shelf items.

III. 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 Office of Federal Procurement Policy 
statute (codified at title 41 of the United States Code). Specifically, 
41 U.S.C. 1707(a)(1) 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 DoD is not 
issuing a new regulation; rather, this rule is merely removing obsolete 
provisions and clauses from the DFARS and making one editorial change 
to a clause to remove a reference to an obsolete clause.

IV. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563

    Executive Order (E.O.) 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review; and 
E.O. 13563, Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review, 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. The Office of Management and Budget, Office of Information 
and Regulatory Affairs, has determined that this is not a significant 
regulatory action as defined under section 3(f) of E.O. 12866 and, 
therefore, was not subject to review under section 6(b). This rule is 
not a major rule as defined at 5 U.S.C. 804(2).

V. Executive Order 13771

    This rule is not subject to Executive Order (E.O.) 13771, because 
this rule is not a significant regulatory action 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 III. of this preamble), the analytical 
requirements 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).
