Start Preamble


Department of Defense.


Final rule.


This final rule removes Department of Defense (DoD) Subchapter R concerning organizational charters. The rules in this subchapter address DoD organizational processes for Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs (ASD(RA)), Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS), Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA), and Defense Legal Services Agency (DLSA). It has been determined that there is no need to codify the rules in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) because these documents will not create a mandate applicable to persons outside of the DoD.


Effective October 20, 2016.
