Defense Acquisition Regulations System, Department of Defense (DoD).
The Department of Defense is issuing a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to specify Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy, Program Development and Implementation, as the office responsible for maintaining order code assignments. The order code procedures are moved from the DFARS to its companion resource, DFARS Procedures, Guidance, and Information.

Director, Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy letter dated September 21, 2010, replaced the Defense Logistics Agency with Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy, Program Development and Implementation, as the responsible office for the maintenance of all order code assignments for use in the first two positions of an order number when an activity places an order against another activity's contract or agreement. In addition, the procedures and addresses for order code monitors are moved to the DFARS companion resource, DFARS Procedures, Guidance, and Information.
II. 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. 1707 is not required.
III. 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 Start Printed Page 38047
