Background DoD is amending the DFARS to update the DoD hotline poster online address included in DFARS clause 252.203–7004, Display of Hotline Posters, and to update the DoD Office of the Inspector General (OIG) contact information in DFARS clause 252.203– 7003, Agency Office of the Inspector General. DFARS clause 252.203–7004 is included in noncommercial solicitations and contracts with an estimated value exceeding $5 million, in lieu of the clause at Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 52.203–14, Display of Hotline Posters. The DFARS clause requires contractors to display DoD hotline posters when contract performance is in the United States or overseas and provides contractors with an online address to use to obtain the current DoD hotline poster. This rule updates the DoD hotline poster online address in the clause, which is no longer accurate.

This rule updates the mailing address to correct the suite number and provides a website for the DoD OIG. II. Discussion and Analysis The modification of DFARS clause 252.203–7004 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. Two respondents submitted public comments on DFARS clause 252.203– 7004, which are summarized below: Comment: The respondents advised that the DFARS clause should be eliminated; or, at a minimum, revised to either allow the electronic poster to suffice, or to allow the contractor’s internal anonymous reporting channels to substitute for the DoD hotline poster. The respondents expressed that it is burdensome and costly to hang the posters and translate them into the local language, when necessary. The respondents noted that contractors are required under FAR 52.203–13, Contractor Code of Business Ethics and Conduct, to have robust ethics and compliance programs, reporting channels for misconduct, and to disclose evidence of certain types of misconduct to the Inspector General’s office. The respondents state that requiring the distribution and translation of posters does not add benefits that outweigh the costs of the requirement. Response: In support of the requirements of Executive Order 13627, Strengthening Protections Against Trafficking in Persons in Federal Contracts, it is a DoD initiative to ensure that no taxpayer resources are used to support human trafficking. DFARS clause 252.203–7004 is used in lieu of the FAR clause and requires the display of hotline posters for applicable contracts being performed overseas, as well within the United States. DoD VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:42 Aug 08, 2019 Jkt 247001 requires posters to be displayed to ensure that contractor employees who do not have access to the internet are aware of their labor rights and have a means of reporting suspected labor violations directly to the DoD OIG. It is also necessary that the posters be translated into the local language so that contractor employees understand the content of the posters. The DoD Task Force reviewed the requirements of DFARS clause 252.203– 7004, and determined that the DFARS clause was out of date and recommended its modification to update the contact information. No change is made to the clause as a result of the public comments received. 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. III. Applicability to Contracts at or Below the Simplified Acquisition Threshold and for Commercial Items, Including Commercially Available Offthe-Shelf Items This rule only updates contact information in two existing 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. 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 IV. 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. IV. Publication of This Final Rule for Public Comment Is Not Required by Statute The statute that applies to the publication of the 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 updating contact information already provided for in existing clauses. V. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 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).

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: DoD is issuing a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to partially implement a section of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 that provides a preference for the acquisition of certain commercial services in contracts that exceed the simplified acquisition threshold.

Background This final rule partially implements section 876 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 (Pub. L. 114–328). Section 876 requires revision of the guidance issued pursuant to section 855 of the NDAA for FY 2016 (Pub. L. 114– 92) (final DFARS rule published in the Federal Register under DFARS Case 2016–D006 on January 31, 2018 (83 FR 4431)) to provide a preference for certain commercial services, unless the appropriate official determines in writing that no commercial items are suitable to meet the agency’s needs. Different approval levels are provided for contracts in excess of $10 million, and contracts that exceed the simplified acquisition threshold but do not exceed $10 million. This rule addresses facilities-related services, knowledgebased services (except engineering services), medical services, and transportation services. Construction services are being addressed under DFARS Case 2019–D034. II. Discussion and Analysis The requirements of section 876 have been implemented by adding a new DFARS section 212.272, Preference for certain commercial products and services. A cross-reference to the new section has been added in part 237, Service Contracting, at DFARS 237.102. Also provided in the new DFARS section 212.272, is a cross-reference to the implementation of section 856 of the NDAA for FY 2016 at DFARS 239.101 related to the acquisition of information technology products and services. 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 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 PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 39203 comment, because it only specifies the approval process if acquiring certain noncommercial services. These requirements affect only the internal operating procedures of the Government. IV. Applicability to Contracts at or Below the Simplified Acquisition Threshold and for Commercial Items, Including Commercially Available Offthe-Shelf Items This final rule does not create any new DFARS provisions or clauses or modify any DFARS existing provision or clauses. V. 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.

Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement: Modification 
of DFARS Clauses Related to the Display of Hotline Posters (DFARS Case 
2019-D011)

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 update contact information 
in two DFARS clauses that address the display of hotline posters.

DATES: Effective August 9, 2019.

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

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    DoD is amending the DFARS to update the DoD hotline poster online 
address included in DFARS clause 252.203-7004, Display of Hotline 
Posters, and to update the DoD Office of the Inspector General (OIG) 
contact information in DFARS clause 252.203-7003, Agency Office of the 
Inspector General.
    DFARS clause 252.203-7004 is included in noncommercial 
solicitations and contracts with an estimated value exceeding $5 
million, in lieu of the clause at Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 
52.203-14, Display of Hotline Posters. The DFARS clause requires 
contractors to display DoD hotline posters when contract performance is 
in the United States or overseas and provides contractors with an 
online address to use to obtain the current DoD hotline poster. This 
rule updates the DoD hotline poster online address in the clause, which 
is no longer accurate.

[[Page 39202]]

    Additionally, DoD is amending the DFARS to update the DoD OIG 
contact information in DFARS clause 252.203-7003 and subpart 203.1003. 
This rule updates the mailing address to correct the suite number and 
provides a website for the DoD OIG.

II. Discussion and Analysis

    The modification of DFARS clause 252.203-7004 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. Two 
respondents submitted public comments on DFARS clause 252.203-7004, 
which are summarized below:
    Comment: The respondents advised that the DFARS clause should be 
eliminated; or, at a minimum, revised to either allow the electronic 
poster to suffice, or to allow the contractor's internal anonymous 
reporting channels to substitute for the DoD hotline poster. The 
respondents expressed that it is burdensome and costly to hang the 
posters and translate them into the local language, when necessary. The 
respondents noted that contractors are required under FAR 52.203-13, 
Contractor Code of Business Ethics and Conduct, to have robust ethics 
and compliance programs, reporting channels for misconduct, and to 
disclose evidence of certain types of misconduct to the Inspector 
General's office. The respondents state that requiring the distribution 
and translation of posters does not add benefits that outweigh the 
costs of the requirement.
    Response: In support of the requirements of Executive Order 13627, 
Strengthening Protections Against Trafficking in Persons in Federal 
Contracts, it is a DoD initiative to ensure that no taxpayer resources 
are used to support human trafficking. DFARS clause 252.203-7004 is 
used in lieu of the FAR clause and requires the display of hotline 
posters for applicable contracts being performed overseas, as well 
within the United States. DoD requires posters to be displayed to 
ensure that contractor employees who do not have access to the internet 
are aware of their labor rights and have a means of reporting suspected 
labor violations directly to the DoD OIG. It is also necessary that the 
posters be translated into the local language so that contractor 
employees understand the content of the posters.
    The DoD Task Force reviewed the requirements of DFARS clause 
252.203-7004, and determined that the DFARS clause was out of date and 
recommended its modification to update the contact information. No 
change is made to the clause as a result of the public comments 
received.

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 updates contact information in two existing 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.

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

    The statute that applies to the publication of the 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 updating contact information already provided for in existing 
clauses.

V. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563

    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.

VI. Executive Order 13771

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

VII. 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 IV. 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.

VIII. 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).
