SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

Section 32.905(f)(6) of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) requires that receiving reports supporting invoice payments include the signature, printed name, title, mailing address, and telephone number of the Government official responsible for acceptance or approval functions. DD Form 250, Material Inspection and Receiving Report, has been revised to provide for inclusion of all information required by FAR 32.905(f)(6). This final rule amends the corresponding DD Form 250 preparation instructions in DFARS Appendix F. The rule also makes editorial changes to Appendix F to update and clarify the text.

DD Form 250 and other forms prescribed by the DFARS are not included in the Code of Federal Regulations. The forms are available via the Internet at http://www.acq.osd.mil/​dp/​dars/​dfars/​toc253_​3.htm.

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 affected DFARS subpart in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Such comments should cite DFARS Case 2000-D008.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

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