SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

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.
