SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

The NF 507 was rendered obsolete in 2003 and has been eliminated as a NASA form. Thus, the requirement for its submission by NASA grant officers on all grant and cooperative agreement actions is eliminated.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

The Regulatory Flexibility Act does not apply to this final rule. This final rule does not constitute a significant revision within the meaning of Public Law 98-577, and publication for public comment is not required. However, NASA will consider comments from small entities concerning the affected coverage in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Interested parties should cite 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., in correspondence.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

The Paperwork Reduction Act (Pub. L. 104-13) does not apply because this rule does not impose any new recordkeeping or information collection requirements, or collection of information from offerors, contractors, or members of the public that require the approval of the Office of Management (OMB) and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.
