It has been determined that publication of this CFR part removal for public comment is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to public interest since it is removing obsolete information. The content is duplicative of FAR Part 15 and DFARS Part 215. The clause referred to in 5215.407 has been subsumed into the instructions at FAR 15.403-5. This rule removes the superseded regulations which are obsolete.

This rule is not significant under Executive Order (E.O.) 12866, Start Printed Page 3113“Regulatory Planning and Review,” therefore, the requirements of E.O. 13771, “Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs” do not apply.
