SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

10 U.S.C. 2323 establishes a goal for DoD to award five percent of contract and subcontract dollars to small disadvantaged businesses, historically black colleges and universities, and minority institutions. Section 842 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2006 (Pub. L. 109-163) extended the period for applicability of the goal through fiscal year 2009. This final rule amends DFARS 219.800 to reflect the extension.

This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

This rule will not have a significant cost or administrative impact on contractors or offerors, or a significant effect beyond the internal operating procedures of DoD. Therefore, publication for public comment is not required. However, DoD will consider comments from small entities concerning the affected DFARS subpart in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Such comments should cite DFARS Case 2006-D010.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply, because the rule does not impose any information collection requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.
