SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

The restriction on acquisition of vessel propellers at DFARS 225.7020 implements Section 8064 of the DoD Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2001 (Public Law 106-259). Section 8064 provides that no funds appropriated in fiscal year 2000 or 2001 may be used for the procurement of vessel propellers other than those produced by a domestic source and of domestic origin. The DoD Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2002 (Public Law 107-117) contains no such provision. Therefore, this final rule amends DFARS 225.7020 to clarify that the restriction applies only to DoD contracts that use fiscal year 2000 or 2001 funds.

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 rule will not have a significant cost or administrative impact on contractors or offerors, or a significant effect beyond the internal operating procedures of DoD. Therefore, 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 2002-D006.

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.
