SBA received extensive responses on the proposed rule from 38 entities, which comprised almost 250 specific comments. One commenter requested additional time to submit comments. SBA declined to provide an extension of the comment period on grounds of administrative efficiency, since this rule implements statutory requirements and makes other changes of critical importance to small businesses. SBA’s discussion below summarizes the proposed rule, the comments related to each section of the proposed rule, and SBA’s responses. U.S. Small Business Administration. ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA or Agency) is amending its regulations to implement several provisions of the National Defense Authorization Acts (NDAA) of 2016 and 2017 and the Recovery Improvements for Small Entities After Disaster Act of 2015 (RISE Act), as well SUMMARY: khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES as to clarify existing regulations. This rule clarifies that contracting officers have the authority to request information in connection with a contractor’s compliance with applicable limitations on subcontracting clauses; provides exclusions for purposes of compliance with the limitations on subcontracting for certain contracts performed outside of the United States, for environmental remediation contracts, and for information technology service acquisitions that require substantial cloud computing; requires a prime contractor with a commercial subcontracting plan to include indirect costs in its subcontracting goals; establishes that failure to provide timely subcontracting reports may constitute a material breach of the contract; clarifies the requirements for size and status recertification; and limits the scope of Procurement Center Representative (PCR) reviews of Department of Defense acquisitions performed outside of the United States and its territories. This rule also authorizes agencies to receive double credit for small business goaling achievements as announced in SBA’s scorecard for local area small business set-asides in connection with a disaster. Finally, SBA is removing the kit assembler exception to the nonmanufacturer rule. 25 U.S.C. 603(a) and 604(a).

Section 863 also amended section 44(c)(2) of the Small Business Act (15 U.S.C. 657q(c)(2)) to provide that upon determining that a consolidation of contract requirements is necessary and justified, the Senior Procurement Executive (SPE) or Chief Acquisition Officer (CAO) shall publish a notice on a public website that such determination has been made. An agency may not issue the solicitation any earlier than 7 days after publication of the notice. The SPE or CAO must also publish the justification along with the solicitation. The requirement may be delegated. SBA proposed to amend § 125.2(d) by adding new paragraphs (d)(1)(v) and (d)(7) to implement these changes. Specifically, SBA proposed that the notice be published on the contracting agency’s website. SBA received three comments on these proposed new paragraphs and all three supported the proposal to require public notification of a consolidation determination. Based on agency comments, SBA is adopting a final rule that requires publication of the notice on the Government Point of Entry website because this will be a more efficient and effective mechanism to notify the public. Notice provided through one Government website, which already serves as the means for most procurement-related notices, will likely be viewed by a larger portion of the public than through an individual agency website.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Bureau is issuing this document to correct an error in one of 
the amendments to the official interpretation for Regulation Z. The 
Bureau finds that there is good cause to publish this correction 
without seeking public comment.\1\ Public comment is unnecessary 
because the Bureau is correcting an inadvertent, technical error about 
which there is minimal, if any, basis for substantive disagreement. 
Because no notice of proposed

[[Page 65647]]

rulemaking is required, the Regulatory Flexibility Act does not require 
an initial or final regulatory flexibility analysis.\2\ The Bureau has 
determined that these corrections do not impose any new or revise any 
existing recordkeeping, reporting, or disclosure requirements on 
covered entities or members of the public that would be collections of 
information requiring OMB approval under the Paperwork Reduction 
Act.\3\
