SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) 97-19 replaced the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) system with the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). Additionally, FAC 97-19 amended the title to section 7.107, revised subpart 11.5, and amended section 43.205. This final rule amends the NASA FAR Supplement (NFS) to conform to these changes. Changes unrelated to FAC 97-19 are made to: update references to internal documents; revise the dollar threshold for use of Government bills of lading at 1852.247-73; revise the instructions for amending the clause at 1852.242-70 when its Alternate II is used; and make a technical correction at 1819.202.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

NASA certifies that this final rule does not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small business entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601, et seq.), because it does not impose new requirements on offerors or contractors.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the changes to the NFS do not impose any recordkeeping or information collection requirements, or collection of information from offerors, contractors, or members of the public that require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.
