I. Background

DFARS 209.405-1 limits placement of orders against contracts with contractors that have been debarred, suspended, or proposed for debarment. On December 11, 2003, the final rule published under FAR Case 2002-010 (68 FR 69250) incorporated these restrictions into the FAR. The DFARS text, therefore, became redundant and is deleted by this final rule.

II. Executive Order 12866

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

III. Regulatory Flexibility Act

The Regulatory Flexibility Act does not apply to this rule. This final rule does not constitute a significant DFARS revision within the meaning of 41 U.S.C. 418b and FAR 1.501, and publication for public comment is not required. However, DoD will consider comments from small entities concerning the affected DFARS parts in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Interested parties must submit such comments separately and should cite 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., in correspondence.

IV. Paperwork Reduction Act

This rule does not impose any new information collection requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.
