A. Background

This final rule removes DFARS 250.104. This section contained requirements for preparation of reports to Congress regarding actions taken on contractor requests for relief under the authority of Public Law 85-804. Section 901(r)(1) of the Federal Reports Elimination Act of 1998 (Public Law 105-362) repealed this reporting requirement, formerly found at 50 U.S.C. 1434.

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

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

This final rule does not constitute a significant revision within the meaning of FAR 1.501 and Public Law 98-577 and publication for public comment is not required. However, DoD will consider comments from small entities concerning the affects DFARS subpart in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Such comments should cite DFARS Case 2000-D016.

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.
