This final rule amends DFARS 207.105 to add corrosion prevention and mitigation to the areas that agencies must address in acquisition plans. The rule implements Section 1067 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2003 (Public Law 107-314), which requires DoD to prevent and mitigate corrosion during the design, acquisition, and maintenance of military equipment.
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 2004-D004.
