SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On March 2, 2007, FEMA published a direct final rule at 72 FR 9445 that notified the public of FEMA's intent to remove the FEMA Acquisition Regulation (FEMAAR) at 48 CFR Chapter 44 in its entirety. The specific language and subsequent clauses are removed as a result of the transfer of FEMA to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on March 1, 2003. The Homeland Security Acquisition Regulation (HSAR) created a department-wide acquisition regulation for DHS in 48 CFR Chapter 30, and included FEMA in the list of entities for which the chapter applied, thereby superseding and making 48 CFR Chapter 44 duplicative and unnecessary. FEMA has not received an adverse comment, or notice of intent to submit an adverse comment, on this rule. Therefore, the rule will go into effect as scheduled.
