DoD published an interim rule at 70 FR 8536 on February 22, 2005, to implement Section 816 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005 (Pub. L. 108-375). Section 816 amended 10 U.S.C. 2416(d) to increase, from $500,000 to $1,000,000, the threshold at which a DoD contract must include a requirement for the contractor to provide to cooperative agreement holders, upon their request, a list of the contractor's employees who are responsible for entering into subcontracts. The interim rule amended the prescription for use of the clause at DFARS 252.205-7000, Provision of Information to Cooperative Agreement Holders, to reflect the new dollar threshold.
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. While the rule reduces administrative burdens for contractors, the economic impact is not expected to be substantial.
C. Paperwork Reduction Act
The information collection requirements of the clause at DFARS 252.205-7000, Provision of Information to Cooperative Agreement Holders, have been approved by the Office of Management and Budget, under Control Number 0704-0286, for use through September 30, 2007.Start List of Subjects
