48 CFR Part 236

[DFARS Case 2000-D010]

Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement; Special Procedures for Negotiation of Construction Contracts

AGENCY:

Department of Defense (DoD)

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The Director of Defense Procurement has issued a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to remove obsolete text pertaining to special procedures for fee negotiation under cost-reimbursement contracts for construction.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

August 17, 2000.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:

Ms. Amy Williams, Defense Acquisition Regulations Council, OUSD (ATL) DP (DAR), IMD 3D139, 3062 Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-3062. Telephone (703) 602-0288; telefax (703) 602-0350. Please cite DFARS Case 2000-D010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

This final rule removes DFARS Subpart 236.4, section 236.403, which contained special procedures for fee negotiation under cost-reimbursement contracts for construction. This DFARS text previously supplemented Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) text that ids now located at FAR 36.215. DoD has determined that this supplemental DFARS text is no longer necessary.

This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

This final rule does not constitute a significant revision within the meaning of FAR 1.501 and Public Law 98-577 and publication for public comment is not required. However, DoD will consider comments from small entities concerning the affected DFARS subpart in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Such comments should cite DFARS Case 2000-D010.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

The paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the rule does not impose any information collection requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.
