Summaries for each FAR rule follow. For the actual revisions and/or amendments made by these FAR cases, refer to the specific item numbers and subjects set forth in the documents following these item summaries. FAC 2005-73 amends the FAR as specified below:

Item I—Positive Law Codification of Title 41 (FAR Case 2011-018)

This final rule amends the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to conform references throughout the FAR to the new Positive Law Codification of Title 41, United States Code, “Public Contracts” and other conforming changes. The new codification of Title 41 was enacted on January 4, 2011, under Public Law 111-350. Additionally, the rule completes the implementation of the recodification of Title 40. The codifications reorganized and renumbered the statutes, but did not change the meaning or legal effect.

A table at FAR 1.110 provides the popular names of Acts, the present statutory citation, and the new titles of the statutes. For example the “Service Contract Act of 1965” is now the “Service Contract Labor Standards statute”.

The rule does not have a significant effect beyond the internal operating procedures of the Government, and consequently does not have a significant cost or administrative impact on entities either large or small.

Item II—Technical Amendments

Editorial changes are made at FAR 9.105-2, 9.203, 11.201, 52.203-17, 52.208-8, 52.211-2, and 52.212-1.
