SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

DoD published a final rule in the Federal Register on April 26, 2002 (67 FR 20688), under DFARS Case 2000-D018. That rule amended policy for computation of profit objectives by reducing the value assigned to facilities capital employed for equipment, eliminating the values assigned to facilities capital employed for buildings, increasing the values for performance risk, and adding a special factor for cost efficiency.

This final rule amends DD Form 1547, Record of Weighted Guidelines Application, and corresponding completion instructions, to reflect the changes to profit policy published on April 26, 2002.

DD Form 1547, and other forms prescribed by the DFARS, are not included in the Code of Federal Regulations. The forms are available electronically via the Internet at http://web1.whs.osd.mil/​icdhome/​ddeforms.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 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 subparts in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Such comments should cite DFARS Case 2002-D012.

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.
