SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

This final rule revises DFARS 204.804 to remove text addressing DoD procedures for closeout of contract files. Text on this subject has been relocated to the DFARS companion resource, Procedures, Guidance, and Information (PGI), at http://www.acq.osd.mil/​dpap/​dars/​dfarspgi/​current/​index.html. In addition, the rule amends DFARS 244.304 to clarify an existing reference to corresponding PGI text.

DoD published a proposed rule at 72 FR 14256 on March 27, 2007. DoD received no comments on the proposed rule. Therefore, DoD has adopted the proposed rule as a final rule without change.

This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review under Start Printed Page 4114Executive 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 pertains to administrative procedures for contract closeout functions performed by the Government.

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.
