A. Background

DoD published an interim rule at 70 FR 24323 on May 9, 2005, to implement Section 8008 of the Defense Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2005 (Pub. L. 108-287) and Section 814 of the Start Printed Page 54652National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005 (Pub. L. 108-375). Section 814 requires DoD to provide notice and supporting rationale to Congress before awarding a multiyear contract containing a cancellation ceiling exceeding $100 million that is not fully funded. Section 8008 places additional restrictions on the award of multiyear contracts for supplies using fiscal year 2005 appropriated funds.

DoD received no comments on the interim rule. Therefore, DoD has adopted the interim rule as a final rule without change.

This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

DoD certifies that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., because the rule addresses internal DoD planning, budgeting, and reporting requirements related to the award of multiyear contracts.

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.
