A. Background

GSA published a proposed rule, with request for comments, in the Federal Register at 73 FR 32277 on June 6, 2008. No comments were received in response to the proposed rule. Therefore, the proposed rule is converted to final with no change. The information contained in Subpart 547.3—Transportation in Supply Contracts, sections 547.300, 547.303, 547.304, 547.305, and 547.370, is being deleted. In addition, clauses 552.247-70, Placarding Railcar Shipments, and 552.247-71, Diversion of Shipment Under f.o.b. Destination Contracts, are being deleted from 552.547.

This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not subject to review under Section 6(b) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

The General Services Administration 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 deletes information and clauses that are deemed unnecessary and therefore, has no impact.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the changes to the GSAR do not impose recordkeeping or information collection requirements, or otherwise collect information from offerors, contractors, or members of the public that require approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, et seq.
