Background DFARS provision 252.237–7002, Award to Single Offeror, is included in solicitations for mortuary services that use sealed bidding procedures. The Alternate I provision is included in all solicitations for mortuary services that use negotiated procedures. The provision and the alternate advise offerors that an award will be made to a single offeror, that they must include a unit price for each item to be considered for award, and the Government will evaluate offers on the basis of the estimated quantities shown. The provision then advises offerors that award will be made to the responsive, responsible offeror whose total offer is the lowest price to the Government, while the alternate advises offerors that award will be made to the responsive, responsible offeror whose total offer is the best value to the Government. However, the contents of this DFARS provision are contained in other parts of the solicitation. Specifically, DoD policy and DFARS 237.7001 require the solicitation and award of mortuary services to be accomplished using a requirements contract. Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) 16.503 advises that a requirements contract provides for filling all requirements of designated activities for supplies or services during a specified contract period from one contractor. FAR clause 52.216–21, Requirements, is included in all solicitations for and awards of requirements contracts, and advises E:\FR\FM\13SER2.SGM 13SER2 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 178 / Friday, September 13, 2019 / Rules and Regulations offerors of the Government’s obligation described at FAR 16.503. As such, only single awards can be made in response to a mortuary services solicitation and the disclosure of this information in the DFARS provision is redundant. When a solicitation is issued, a contracting officer identifies the type of contract that will be awarded via FAR clause 52.216–1, Type of Contract, and must include a section in the solicitation document that identifies the basis upon which award will be made, along with all relevant evaluation factors. The remaining information in the DFARS provision is addressed elsewhere in the solicitation and is no longer necessary. khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES2 II.

Background DFARS clause 252.249–7021, Returnable Containers Other Than Cylinders, is included in solicitations and contracts for supplies involving contractor-furnished reels, spools, or other returnable containers (other than cylinders) when the contractor will retain title to the containers. The clause was implemented to standardize the processes and procedures included in DoD contracts regarding the use and return of shipping containers. The clause identifies the rates and fees the Government will pay to use the VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:37 Sep 12, 2019 Jkt 247001 containers, and the terms and conditions on the loss or damage of the containers during use by DoD. Upon review, DoD found that this clause is no longer used in transportation contracts and very rarely used in other DoD contracts. Instead, the processes and procedures addressing the use, return, reimbursement, loss, and damage of returnable shipping containers are included in a performance work statement, when necessary. As these specifications are rarely needed and can be negotiated and incorporated into a contract’s performance work statement, 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.

Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement: Repeal of 
DFARS Provision ``Award to Single Offeror'' (DFARS Case 2019-D024)

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 a clause that is no 
longer necessary.

DATES: Effective September 13, 2019.

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

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    DFARS provision 252.237-7002, Award to Single Offeror, is included 
in solicitations for mortuary services that use sealed bidding 
procedures. The Alternate I provision is included in all solicitations 
for mortuary services that use negotiated procedures. The provision and 
the alternate advise offerors that an award will be made to a single 
offeror, that they must include a unit price for each item to be 
considered for award, and the Government will evaluate offers on the 
basis of the estimated quantities shown. The provision then advises 
offerors that award will be made to the responsive, responsible offeror 
whose total offer is the lowest price to the Government, while the 
alternate advises offerors that award will be made to the responsive, 
responsible offeror whose total offer is the best value to the 
Government.
    However, the contents of this DFARS provision are contained in 
other parts of the solicitation. Specifically, DoD policy and DFARS 
237.7001 require the solicitation and award of mortuary services to be 
accomplished using a requirements contract. Federal Acquisition 
Regulations (FAR) 16.503 advises that a requirements contract provides 
for filling all requirements of designated activities for supplies or 
services during a specified contract period from one contractor. FAR 
clause 52.216-21, Requirements, is included in all solicitations for 
and awards of requirements contracts, and advises

[[Page 48505]]

offerors of the Government's obligation described at FAR 16.503. As 
such, only single awards can be made in response to a mortuary services 
solicitation and the disclosure of this information in the DFARS 
provision is redundant.
    When a solicitation is issued, a contracting officer identifies the 
type of contract that will be awarded via FAR clause 52.216-1, Type of 
Contract, and must include a section in the solicitation document that 
identifies the basis upon which award will be made, along with all 
relevant evaluation factors. The remaining information in the DFARS 
provision is addressed elsewhere in the solicitation and is no longer 
necessary.

II. Discussion and Analysis

    The removal of this DFARS provision implements 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 this clause. The DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force 
reviewed the requirements of DFARS clause 252.237-7002, determined that 
the DFARS coverage was unnecessary, and recommended its removal from 
the DFARS.

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 obsolete DFARS provision 252.237-7002. The 
rule does not impose any new requirements on contracts at or below the 
simplified acquisition threshold or 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 removing an obsolete solicitation provision from the DFARS.

V. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563

    E.O.s 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.

VI. Executive Order 13771

    This 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).
