Background DoD is proposing to revise the DFARS to implement section 836 and section 837(b) of the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:33 Mar 17, 2022 Jkt 256001 Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 (Pub. L. 115–232). Section 836 modified 41 U.S.C. 103 by bifurcating the definition of ‘‘commercial item’’ into ‘‘commercial product’’ and ‘‘commercial service’’ at 41 U.S.C. 103 and 41 U.S.C. 103a, respectively, and made conforming changes to other sections in Title 41. In addition, section 836 made conforming changes to several sections in Title 10, including 10 U.S.C. 2302 and 2375. Section 837(b) implements this revision at 10 U.S.C. 2533a and 2533b. This rule proposes to align the DFARS with the revised definition of ‘‘commercial item’’. These statutory changes implement a recommendation made by the Advisory Panel on Streamlining and Codifying Acquisition Regulations (Section 809 Panel), an independent commission Congress chartered to streamline the Defense Acquisition System. See the recommendation on pages 29–30 of Volume 1 of 3 dated January 2018 of the Report of the Advisory Plan on Streamlining and Codifying Acquisition Regulations at https://section809panel. org/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/ Sec809Panel_Vol1-Report_Jan18_ REVISED_2018-03-14.pdf. The new definitions were effective January 1, 2020. II. Discussion and Analysis DoD is proposing to amend the DFARS to replace all instances of ‘‘commercial item(s)’’ with ‘‘commercial product(s)’’, ‘‘commercial service(s)’’, or ‘‘commercial product(s) and/or commercial service(s)’’, as appropriate within the context of the DFARS text, and to conform with the final rule for Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Case 2018–018, published at 86 FR 61017 on November 4, 2021. The following summarizes the proposed changes to the DFARS: 1. Replace all instances of ‘‘commercial item(s)’’ with ‘‘commercial product(s)’’ and/or ‘‘commercial service(s)’’, as appropriate within the context of the DFARS text. 2. Replace all instances of ‘‘noncommercial item’’ and ‘‘noncommercial item’’ with ‘‘other than commercial product and/or commercial service’’, as appropriate within the context of the DFARS text. 3. Several subpart headings are updated to accommodate the revised nomenclature: DFARS subparts 212.1, 212.2, 212.3, 212.5, 212.6, 212.70, 213.5, 232.1, 232.2, 232.4, 234.70, and 244.4. 4. Other minor editorial changes are made to conform to DFARS drafting conventions, such as revising references to ‘‘task and delivery orders’’ to read ‘‘task orders and delivery orders’’. PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4701 Sfmt 4702 III. Applicability to Contract at or Below the Simplified Acquisition Threshold (SAT), for Commercial Products Including Commercially Available Off-the-Shelf (COTS) Items, and for Commercial Services This rule does not create any new solicitation provisions or contract clauses. It does not impact any existing solicitation provisions, contract clauses, or prescriptions for provisions or clauses or their applicability to contracts valued at or below the simplified acquisition threshold, for commercial products including COTS items, or for commercial services. IV. Expected Impact of the Rule This proposed rule does not create new requirements or modify any existing requirements. This rule merely proposes to replace the term ‘‘commercial item’’ with ‘‘commercial product,’’ ‘‘commercial service,’’ ‘‘commercial product or commercial service,’’ or ‘‘commercial product and commercial service.’’ In addition, the proposed rule replaces all instances of ‘‘noncommercial item’’ and ‘‘noncommercial item’’ with ‘‘other than commercial product and/or commercial service’’ as appropriate within the context of DFARS text, including existing solicitation provisions or contract clauses, as appropriate. These revisions do not modify commercial acquisition procedures, nor do they modify Government or industry operations; therefore, the proposed rule does not add any new burdens. This proposed rule is expected to resolve the issue the Section 809 Panel cited, which is that the acquisition workforce has faced issues with inconsistent interpretations of policy and confusion over how to identify eligible commercial products and commercial services. Bifurcating the definition of ‘‘commercial item’’ into ‘‘commercial product’’ and ‘‘commercial service’’ is a way to provide clarity for the acquisition workforce, which may result in greater engagement with the commercial marketplace. 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 E:\FR\FM\18MRP4.SGM 18MRP4 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 53 / Friday, March 18, 2022 / Proposed Rules 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. jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with PROPOSALS4 VI. Congressional Review Act As required by the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801–808) before an interim or final rule takes effect, DoD will submit a copy of the interim or final rule with the form, Submission of Federal Rules under the Congressional Review Act, to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States. A major rule under the Congressional Review Act cannot take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. This rule is not anticipated to be a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804. VII. Regulatory Flexibility Act DoD does not expect this proposed rule to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., as it merely replaces all instances of the terms ‘‘commercial item,’’ ‘‘noncommercial item,’’ and ‘‘non-commercial item’’ within the DFARS with updated terms. However, an initial regulatory flexibility analysis has been performed and is summarized as follows: The purpose of this proposed rule is to implement section 836 and section 837(b) of the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 (Pub. L. 115–232). Section 836 replaces the definition of commercial item at 41 U.S.C. 103 with a definition of commercial product at 41 U.S.C. 103 and a definition of commercial service at 41 U.S.C 103a. Section 837(b) implements this revision at 10 U.S.C. 2533a and 2533b. This rule proposes to amend the DFARS to conform with the revision of the definition of commercial item by replacing all instances of ‘‘commercial item’’ with ‘‘commercial product’’ and/ or ‘‘commercial service’’, as appropriate within the context of the DFARS text. In addition, this rule proposes to replace all instances of ‘‘noncommercial item’’ and ‘‘non-commercial item’’ with ‘‘other than commercial product and/or commercial service’’, as appropriate within the context of the DFARS text. The objective of this proposed rule is to implement sections 836 and 837(b) of the John S. McCain NDAA for FY 2019 to align the text of the DFARS with the new statutory definitions of commercial product and commercial service. The VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:33 Mar 17, 2022 Jkt 256001 legal basis for this rule is section 836 and section 837(b) of the John S. McCain NDAA for FY 2019. The proposed rule impacts all entities that do business with DoD, including the over 327,458 small business registrants in the System for Award Management. However, DoD does not expect this proposed rule to have a significant impact, because the rule is not implementing any requirements with which small entities must comply. This proposed rule provides clarity for the acquisition workforce by replacing all instances of ‘‘commercial item’’ with ‘‘commercial product’’ and/or ‘‘commercial service’’, as appropriate within the context of the DFARS text. This proposed rule does not impose any new reporting, recordkeeping, or other compliance requirements for small entities. This proposed rule does not duplicate, overlap, or conflict with any other Federal rules. There are no known alternatives that would accomplish the stated objectives of the applicable statute. DoD invites comments from small business concerns and other interested parties on the expected impact of this rule on small entities. DoD will also consider comments from small entities concerning the existing regulations in subparts affected by this rule in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Interested parties must submit such comments separately and should cite 5 U.S.C. 610 (DFARS Case 2018–D066), in correspondence. VIII. Paperwork Reduction Act This proposed 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).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    DoD is proposing to revise the DFARS to implement section 836 and 
section 837(b) of the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act 
(NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 (Pub. L. 115-232). Section 836 
modified 41 U.S.C. 103 by bifurcating the definition of ``commercial 
item'' into ``commercial product'' and ``commercial service'' at 41 
U.S.C. 103 and 41 U.S.C. 103a, respectively, and made conforming 
changes to other sections in Title 41. In addition, section 836 made 
conforming changes to several sections in Title 10, including 10 U.S.C. 
2302 and 2375. Section 837(b) implements this revision at 10 U.S.C. 
2533a and 2533b. This rule proposes to align the DFARS with the revised 
definition of ``commercial item''.
    These statutory changes implement a recommendation made by the 
Advisory Panel on Streamlining and Codifying Acquisition Regulations 
(Section 809 Panel), an independent commission Congress chartered to 
streamline the Defense Acquisition System. See the recommendation on 
pages 29-30 of Volume 1 of 3 dated January 2018 of the Report of the 
Advisory Plan on Streamlining and Codifying Acquisition Regulations at 
https://section809panel.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/Sec809Panel_Vol1-Report_Jan18_REVISED_2018-03-14.pdf. The new 
definitions were effective January 1, 2020.

II. Discussion and Analysis

    DoD is proposing to amend the DFARS to replace all instances of 
``commercial item(s)'' with ``commercial product(s)'', ``commercial 
service(s)'', or ``commercial product(s) and/or commercial 
service(s)'', as appropriate within the context of the DFARS text, and 
to conform with the final rule for Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 
Case 2018-018, published at 86 FR 61017 on November 4, 2021.
    The following summarizes the proposed changes to the DFARS:
    1. Replace all instances of ``commercial item(s)'' with 
``commercial product(s)'' and/or ``commercial service(s)'', as 
appropriate within the context of the DFARS text.
    2. Replace all instances of ``non-commercial item'' and 
``noncommercial item'' with ``other than commercial product and/or 
commercial service'', as appropriate within the context of the DFARS 
text.
    3. Several subpart headings are updated to accommodate the revised 
nomenclature: DFARS subparts 212.1, 212.2, 212.3, 212.5, 212.6, 212.70, 
213.5, 232.1, 232.2, 232.4, 234.70, and 244.4.
    4. Other minor editorial changes are made to conform to DFARS 
drafting conventions, such as revising references to ``task and 
delivery orders'' to read ``task orders and delivery orders''.

III. Applicability to Contract at or Below the Simplified Acquisition 
Threshold (SAT), for Commercial Products Including Commercially 
Available Off-the-Shelf (COTS) Items, and for Commercial Services

    This rule does not create any new solicitation provisions or 
contract clauses. It does not impact any existing solicitation 
provisions, contract clauses, or prescriptions for provisions or 
clauses or their applicability to contracts valued at or below the 
simplified acquisition threshold, for commercial products including 
COTS items, or for commercial services.

IV. Expected Impact of the Rule

    This proposed rule does not create new requirements or modify any 
existing requirements. This rule merely proposes to replace the term 
``commercial item'' with ``commercial product,'' ``commercial 
service,'' ``commercial product or commercial service,'' or 
``commercial product and commercial service.'' In addition, the 
proposed rule replaces all instances of ``noncommercial item'' and 
``non-commercial item'' with ``other than commercial product and/or 
commercial service'' as appropriate within the context of DFARS text, 
including existing solicitation provisions or contract clauses, as 
appropriate. These revisions do not modify commercial acquisition 
procedures, nor do they modify Government or industry operations; 
therefore, the proposed rule does not add any new burdens. This 
proposed rule is expected to resolve the issue the Section 809 Panel 
cited, which is that the acquisition workforce has faced issues with 
inconsistent interpretations of policy and confusion over how to 
identify eligible commercial products and commercial services. 
Bifurcating the definition of ``commercial item'' into ``commercial 
product'' and ``commercial service'' is a way to provide clarity for 
the acquisition workforce, which may result in greater engagement with 
the commercial marketplace.

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

[[Page 15821]]

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.

VI. Congressional Review Act

    As required by the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801-808) 
before an interim or final rule takes effect, DoD will submit a copy of 
the interim or final rule with the form, Submission of Federal Rules 
under the Congressional Review Act, to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House 
of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States. A 
major rule under the Congressional Review Act cannot take effect until 
60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. This rule is not 
anticipated to be a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804.

VII. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    DoD does not expect this proposed rule to have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the 
meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., as it 
merely replaces all instances of the terms ``commercial item,'' 
``noncommercial item,'' and ``non-commercial item'' within the DFARS 
with updated terms. However, an initial regulatory flexibility analysis 
has been performed and is summarized as follows:
    The purpose of this proposed rule is to implement section 836 and 
section 837(b) of the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act 
(NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 (Pub. L. 115-232). Section 836 
replaces the definition of commercial item at 41 U.S.C. 103 with a 
definition of commercial product at 41 U.S.C. 103 and a definition of 
commercial service at 41 U.S.C 103a. Section 837(b) implements this 
revision at 10 U.S.C. 2533a and 2533b. This rule proposes to amend the 
DFARS to conform with the revision of the definition of commercial item 
by replacing all instances of ``commercial item'' with ``commercial 
product'' and/or ``commercial service'', as appropriate within the 
context of the DFARS text. In addition, this rule proposes to replace 
all instances of ``noncommercial item'' and ``non-commercial item'' 
with ``other than commercial product and/or commercial service'', as 
appropriate within the context of the DFARS text.
    The objective of this proposed rule is to implement sections 836 
and 837(b) of the John S. McCain NDAA for FY 2019 to align the text of 
the DFARS with the new statutory definitions of commercial product and 
commercial service. The legal basis for this rule is section 836 and 
section 837(b) of the John S. McCain NDAA for FY 2019.
    The proposed rule impacts all entities that do business with DoD, 
including the over 327,458 small business registrants in the System for 
Award Management. However, DoD does not expect this proposed rule to 
have a significant impact, because the rule is not implementing any 
requirements with which small entities must comply. This proposed rule 
provides clarity for the acquisition workforce by replacing all 
instances of ``commercial item'' with ``commercial product'' and/or 
``commercial service'', as appropriate within the context of the DFARS 
text.
    This proposed rule does not impose any new reporting, 
recordkeeping, or other compliance requirements for small entities.
    This proposed rule does not duplicate, overlap, or conflict with 
any other Federal rules.
    There are no known alternatives that would accomplish the stated 
objectives of the applicable statute.
    DoD invites comments from small business concerns and other 
interested parties on the expected impact of this rule on small 
entities.
    DoD will also consider comments from small entities concerning the 
existing regulations in subparts affected by this rule in accordance 
with 5 U.S.C. 610. Interested parties must submit such comments 
separately and should cite 5 U.S.C. 610 (DFARS Case 2018-D066), in 
correspondence.

VIII. Paperwork Reduction Act

    This proposed 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).

List of Subjects in 48 CFR Parts 203, 204, 205, 207, 208, 211, 212,

    (iii) * * *
    (A) Except as provided in paragraph (a)(iii)(B) of this section, 
may treat supplies and services provided by nontraditional defense 
contractors as commercial products or commercial services. This 
permissive authority is intended to enhance defense innovation and 
investment, enable DoD to acquire products or services that otherwise 
might not have been available, and create incentives for nontraditional 
defense contractors to do business with DoD. It is not intended to 
recategorize current other than commercial products or commercial 
services; however, when appropriate, contracting officers may consider 
applying commercial product or commercial service procedures to the 
procurement of supplies and services from business segments that meet 
the definition of ``nontraditional defense contractor'' (see 202.101) 
even though they have been established under traditional defense 
contractors. The decision to apply commercial product or commercial 
service procedures to the procurement of supplies and services from 
nontraditional defense contractors does not require a commercial 
product or commercial service determination and does not mean the 
product or service is commercial;
