DoD published an interim rule at 72 FR 2631 on January 22, 2007, to provide a single reference to the acquisition flexibilities that may be used to facilitate and expedite DoD acquisitions of supplies and services during emergency situations. The rule supplements the Governmentwide acquisition flexibilities found in Part 18 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation.
DoD received no comments on the interim rule. Therefore, DoD has adopted the interim rule as a final rule without change.
This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993.
B. Regulatory Flexibility Act
DoD certifies that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., because the rule is a compilation of existing authorities, and makes no change to DoD contracting policy.
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.Start List of Subjects
