SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:Start Printed Page 62191

A. Background

NASA is in the process of implementing a new Agency-wide Integrated Financial Management System. This implementation requires a minor change to the number of digits and sequence of characters used in the contract identification number. This final rule makes these administrative changes to the contract numbering scheme used for NASA contracts.

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, NASA will consider comments from small entities concerning the affected NFS Part 1804 in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the changes do not impose recordkeeping or information collection requirements which require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.
