SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

Section 904 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2006 (Pub. L. 109-163) redesignated the “Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization” to the “Office of Small Business Programs” for DoD. This final rule amends the DFARS to reflect the redesignation.

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 procedures 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 2008-D001.

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.
