SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This document corrects internal citations within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Homeland Security Acquisition Regulation (HSAR) at parts 3009 and 3052 to reflect a prior redesignation of related sections and the recodification of certain public contracting laws in title 41, United States Code, by Public Law 111-350, 124 Stat. 367 (Jan. 4, 2011).

On November 16, 2009, DHS published a final rule entitled Prohibition on Federal Protective Service Guard Services Contracts With Business Concerns Owned, Controlled, or Operated by an Individual Convicted of a Felony [HSAR Case 2009-001], 74 FR 58851 (Nov. 16, 2009), implementing prohibitions related to contracting with guard services owned, controlled or operated by an individual who has been convicted of a serious felony. This final rule resulted in the resdesignation of multiple sections within the HSAR. On December 16, 2009, DHS corrected the final rule by redesignating section 3009.104-70 as section 3009.108-70, and subsections 3009.104-71 through 3009.104-75 as subsections 3009.108-7001 through 3009.108-7005. 74 FR 66584 (Dec. 16, 2009). This amendment corrects internal references within subsections 3009.108-7001, 3009.108-7004 and 3052.209-70 to reflect the previous redesignations.

The amendment also corrects the authority citation for Parts 3009 and 3052 resulting from the recodification of certain public contracting laws in title 41 by Public Law 111-350, 124 Stat. 367 (Jan. 4, 2011).
