Office of the Secretary, DOT.
The Department of Transportation is converting the interim final rule published in the Federal Register at 70 FR 6506, on February 7, 2005 to a final rule with changes to amend the Transportation Acquisition Regulation (TAR) due to internal organization changes and the need for minor editorial changes. No comments were received on this rule. This final rule replaces the 1994 edition of the Transportation Acquisition Regulation (TAR) with the 2004 edition.
This rule is effective January 26, 2006.Start Further Info

The Department did not receive any comments to its interim final rule on this subject. Accordingly, the interim final rule amending 48 CFR Chapter 12 which was published at 70 FR 6505 on February 7, 2005, is adopted as a final rule without substantive change.
On February 21, 2005, the Department of Transportation was reorganized by, among other changes, establishing two new operating administrations. This is an internal organizational change to the Department not requiring public comment. This final rule includes a change in nomenclature to ensure that the rule includes the present names of DOT operating administrations. In addition, there are few minor editorial corrections.Start List of Subjects
