The NASA HQ Office of Strategic Communications is extending the notification process to Members of Congress and the public for all new contract actions with anticipated values $5 million or greater. This final rule implements this change.

A. 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 1805 in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610.

B. 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.
