This final rule amends the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement by deleting subpart DFARS 219.10 to meet the requirements of section 1335 of the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010, (Pub. L. 111-240). Section 1335 amended the Business Opportunity Development Reform Act of 1988 (Pub. L. 100-656) by striking title VII (15 U.S.C. 644 note). The repeal of the Small Business Competitiveness Demonstration Program became effective immediately upon the enactment. It will apply to the first full fiscal year after the September 27, 2010, date of enactment (Fiscal Year 2011). Therefore, the text at DFARS subpart 219.10 is obsolete.Start Printed Page 9681
II. Executive Order 12866
This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not subject to review under Section 6(b) of the Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, 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 because an initial regulatory flexibility analysis is only required for proposed or interim rules that require publication for public comment (5 U.S.C. 603) and a final regulatory flexibility analysis is only required for final rules that were previously published for public comment, and for which an initial regulatory flexibility analysis was prepared (5 U.S.C. 604).
This final rule does not constitute a significant DFARS revision as defined at FAR 1.501-1 because 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 the Government. Therefore, publication for public comment under 41 U.S.C. 418b is not required.
IV. Paperwork Reduction Act
The final rule does not contain any information collection requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35).Start List of Subjects
