SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Although the Renegotiation Board is no longer in existence, other Federal Agencies are required to use interest rates computed under the criteria established by the Renegotiation Act of 1971 Sec. 2, Public Law 92-41, 85 Stat. 97. For example, the Contract Disputes Act of 1978, Sec. 12, Public Law 95-563, 92 Stat. 2389, and, indirectly, the Prompt Payment Act of 1982, 31 U.S.C. 3902(a), provide for the calculation of interest due on claims at a rate established by the Secretary of the Treasury for the Renegotiation board under Public Law 92-41.

Therefore, notice is given that the Secretary of the Treasury has determined that the rate of interest applicable, for the period beginning July 1, 2006, and ending on December 31, 2006, is 53/4 per centum per annum. This rate is determined pursuant to the above-mentioned sections for the purpose of said sections.
