A. Background

The text at DFARS 225.7010 through 225.7010-4, and the corresponding contract clause at DFARS 252.225-7023, were added on December 13, 2000 (65 FR 77827), to implement provisions of Section 8064 of the Fiscal Year 2001 DoD Appropriations Act (Pub. L. 106-259) relating to vessel propellers. Section 8064 prohibited the use of fiscal year 2000 or 2001 DoD appropriated funds for the procurement of vessel propellers, other than those produced by a domestic source and of domestic origin, unless an exception applied or a waiver was granted. This prohibition was not repeated in subsequent appropriations acts and, therefore, is removed from the DFARS.

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 Start Printed Page 21846procedures of DoD. Therefore, publication for public comment under 41 U.S.C. 418b is not required. However, DoD will consider comments from small entities concerning the affected DFARS subparts in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Such comments should cite DFARS Case 2007-D027.

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.
