Information Collection Requirement; Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement; DFARS Part 245, Government Property
In compliance with Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), DoD announces the proposed extension of a public information collection requirement and seeks public comment on the provisions thereof. DoD invites comments on whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of DoD, including whether the information will have practical utility; the accuracy of the estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and to minimize the burden of the information collection on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has approved this information collection under Control Number 0704-0246 for use through December 31, 2014. DoD is proposing that OMB extend its approval for use for three additional years.
Audits of State and Local Governments, Institutions of Higher Education, and Other Nonprofit Institutions
This final rule removes regulations concerning the audits of state and local governments, institutions of higher education, and other nonprofit institutions. The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) provisions being removed contain policies and procedures directed at DoD component personnel and not the public. Additionally, other DoD guidance on this subject has been published in the Defense Grant and Agreement Regulations, to provide appropriate notice to outside entities.
