Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 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 it does not constitute a significant DFARS revision within the meaning of FAR 1.501–1 and does not have a significant cost or administrative impact on contractors or offerors. This final rule only adjusts the trade agreements thresholds according to predetermined formulae to adjust for changes in economic conditions, thus maintaining the status quo, without significant effect beyond the internal operating procedures of the Government. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES III. Applicability to Contracts at or Below the Simplified Acquisition Threshold and for Commercial Items, Including Commercially Available Offthe-Shelf Items This rule amends the DFARS to revise thresholds for application of the WTO GPA and the FTA. The revisions do not add any new burdens or impact applicability of clauses and provisions at or below the simplified acquisition threshold, or to commercial items. VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:44 Dec 30, 2019 Jkt 250001 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 (OMB), 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). This rule is not subject to E.O. 13771, because this rule is not a significant regulatory action under E.O. 12866. VI. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Regulatory Flexibility Act does not apply to this rule because this final rule does not constitute a significant FAR revision within the meaning of FAR 1.501–1, and 41 U.S.C. 1707 and does not require publication for public comment. VII. Paperwork Reduction Act The Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C chapter 35) does apply, because the final rule affects the prescriptions for use of the certification and information collection requirements in the provision at DFARS 252.225–7035, Buy American—Free Trade Agreements- Frm 00020 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 $182,000 $7,008,000 83,099 182,000 83,099 83,099 83,099 100,000 182,000 7,008,000 10,802,884 7,088,000 7,088,000 7,088,000 7,008,000 7,008,000 83,099 83,099 182,000 182,000 83,099 10,802,884 10,802,884 7,008,000 7,008,000 7,008,000 Balance of Payments Program Certificate, and the certification and information collection requirements in the provision at DFARS 252.225–7018, Photovoltaic Devices—Certificate. The changes to these DFARS clauses do not impose additional information collection requirements to the paperwork burden previously approved under OMB Control Number 0704–0229, entitled ‘‘DFARS Part 225, Foreign Acquisition and related clauses,’’ because the threshold changes are in line with inflation and maintain the status quo.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: DoD is issuing a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to establish a DoD contractor purchasing system review dollar threshold that provides a regulatory basis for allowing DoD personnel to support other essential priorities and missions of greater contractual risk, while reducing regulatory impact on contractors. DATES: Effective December 31, 2019. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kimberly Ziegler, telephone 571–372– 6095. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Background DoD published a proposed rule in the Federal Register at 84 FR 25228 on May 31, 2019, proposing to amend the DFARS to implement a recommendation from the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) to raise the contractor purchasing system review (CPSR) threshold at Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 44.302(a) from $25 million to $50 million. Currently, FAR 44.302(a) requires the administrative contracting officer (ACO) to determine whether a contractor’s sales to the Government are expected to exceed $25 million during the next 12 months and, if so, perform a review to determine if a CPSR is needed. The ACO uses this dollar threshold in conjunction with the surveillance criteria cited at FAR 44.302(a), i.e., contractor past performance, and the volume, complexity, and dollar value of subcontracts, to make this determination. DCMA performs the preponderance of DoD CPSRs. Competitively awarded firm-fixed-price and competitively awarded fixed-price with economic price adjustment contracts and sales of commercial items pursuant to part 12 of the FAR are excluded from this requirement. PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 72247 FAR 44.302(a) specifically authorizes the head of the agency responsible for contract administration to raise or lower the $25 million CPSR threshold if it is considered to be in the Government’s best interest. The dollar threshold of $25 million cited at FAR 44.302(a) has been unchanged since 1996. In 2016, the DCMA CPSR Group conducted an analysis to determine if raising the CPSR threshold would be beneficial. Based on the Group’s findings, it was determined that adjusting the threshold upward to $50 million would appropriately account for inflation, reduce burden on small contractors, and allow a more efficient and effective use of CPSR resources to review larger contractors where more taxpayer dollars are at risk. Three respondents submitted public comments in response to the proposed rule. II. Discussion and Analysis DoD reviewed the public comments in the development of the final rule. A. Summary of Significant Changes From the Proposed Rule There are no changes made to the final rule as a result of the public comments. B. Analysis of Public Comments 1. Support for the Rule Comment: Two respondents conveyed overall support for the rule, but one respondent stated the support for the rule was contingent on DoD ensuring procurements valued at $50 million or below will not require the contractor to have or maintain an approved purchasing system per the clause at DFARS 252.242–7005, Contractor Business Systems. Response: FAR clause 52.244–2, Subcontracts, allows the contracting officer to assess whether a system review is needed (e.g., when meeting the $50 million threshold is anticipated). DFARS 252.244–7001, Contractor Purchasing System Administration, establishes the review criteria. Contractors whose sales have not reached the $50 million threshold may opt to allow their approval to expire rather than incur the costs to maintain a system that meets the criteria for an approved system. If an approved purchasing system is necessary to support a particular program, the contractor can work with the contracting officer to obtain a purchasing system review based on risk or pressing need. Otherwise, the contractor can request consent to subcontract in accordance with FAR 52.244–2. E:\FR\FM\31DER1.SGM 31DER1

Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement: Trade 
Agreements Thresholds (DFARS Case 2019-D035)

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 incorporate revised 
thresholds for application of the World Trade Organization Government 
Procurement Agreement and the Free Trade Agreements, as determined by 
the United States Trade Representative.

DATES: Effective January 1, 2020.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    This rule adjusts thresholds for application of the World Trade 
Organization (WTO) Government Procurement Agreement (GPA) and Free 
Trade Agreements (FTA) as determined by the United States Trade 
Representative (USTR). The trade agreements thresholds are adjusted 
every two years according to predetermined formulae set forth in the 
agreements. The USTR has specified the following new thresholds (84 FR 
70615, December 23, 2019):

------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 it does not constitute a significant DFARS revision within the 
meaning of FAR 1.501-1 and does not have a significant cost or 
administrative impact on contractors or offerors. This final rule only 
adjusts the trade agreements thresholds according to predetermined 
formulae to adjust for changes in economic conditions, thus maintaining 
the status quo, without significant effect beyond the internal 
operating procedures of the Government.

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

    This rule amends the DFARS to revise thresholds for application of 
the WTO GPA and the FTA. The revisions do not add any new burdens or 
impact applicability of clauses and provisions at or below the 
simplified acquisition threshold, or to commercial items.

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 (OMB), 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 E.O. 13771, because this rule is not a 
significant regulatory action under E.O. 12866.

VI. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act does not apply to this rule because 
this final rule does not constitute a significant FAR revision within 
the meaning of FAR 1.501-1, and 41 U.S.C. 1707 and does not require 
publication for public comment.

VII. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C chapter 35) does apply, 
because the final rule affects the prescriptions for use of the 
certification and information collection requirements in the provision 
at DFARS 252.225-7035, Buy American--Free Trade Agreements-Balance of 
Payments Program Certificate, and the certification and information 
collection requirements in the provision at DFARS 252.225-7018, 
Photovoltaic Devices--Certificate. The changes to these DFARS clauses 
do not impose additional information collection requirements to the 
paperwork burden previously approved under OMB Control Number 0704-
0229, entitled ``DFARS Part 225, Foreign Acquisition and related 
clauses,'' because the threshold changes are in line with inflation and 
maintain the status quo.
