SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

DoD published an interim rule at 65 FR 2058 on January 13, 2000. The rule added a new section at DFARS 241.103 to implement Section 2812 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2000 (Public Law 106-65). Section 2812 amended 10 U.S.C. 2688 to provide authority for DoD to enter into utility service contracts related to the conveyance of a utility system for periods not to exceed 50 years. DoD received no public comments on the interim rule. The interim rule is converted to a final rule without change.

This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

DoD certifies that this final rule will not 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., because utility services generally are not provided by small business concerns.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the rule does not impose any information collection requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.
