SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background This interim rule amends DFARS clauses relating to trade agreements to implement the Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR) with respect to the Dominican Republic. Congress approved the CAFTA-DR in the Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act (Public Law 109-53). The CAFTA-DR waives the applicability of the Buy American Act for some foreign supplies and construction materials and specifies procurement procedures designed to ensure fairness.

The rule adds the Dominican Republic to the definitions of ``designated country'' and ``Free Trade Agreement country.'' In addition, the rule removes the Dominican Republic from the list of Caribbean Basin countries, because, in accordance with Section 201(a)(3) of Public Law 109-53, when the CAFTA-DR enters into force with respect to a country, that country is no longer designated as a beneficiary country for purposes of the Caribbean Basin Economic Recovery Act.

The rule also adds Bulgaria and Romania to the list of World Trade Organization Government Procurement Agreement countries, based upon direction from the United States Trade Representative.

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

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act DoD does not expect this rule to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq. Although the rule opens up DoD procurement to the products of Bulgaria, the Dominican Republic, and Romania, DoD does not believe there will be a significant economic impact on U.S. small businesses. DoD applies the trade agreements to only those non-defense items listed at DFARS 225.401-70, and procurements that are set aside for small businesses are exempt from application of the trade agreements. Therefore, DoD has not performed an initial regulatory flexibility analysis. DoD invites comments from small businesses and other interested parties. DoD also will consider comments from small entities concerning the affected DFARS subparts in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Such comments should be submitted separately and should cite DFARS Case 2006-D062.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act This rule affects the certification and information collection requirements in the provisions at DFARS 252.225-7020 and 252.225-7035, currently approved under Office of Management and Budget Control Number 0704-0229. The impact, however, is negligible.

D. Determination To Issue an Interim Rule A determination has been made under the authority of the Secretary of Defense that urgent and compelling reasons exist to publish an interim rule prior to affording the public an opportunity to comment. This interim rule implements the Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement with respect to the Dominican Republic, which became effective on March 1, 2007. The rule also implements the addition of Bulgaria and Romania to the countries covered by the World Trade Organization Government Procurement Agreement, which became effective on January 1, 2007. Comments received in response to this interim rule will be considered in the formation of the final rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background DoD published an interim rule at 71 FR 58541 on October 4, 2006, to implement the Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement, with respect to Guatemala, and the United States-Bahrain Free Trade Agreement. The rule amended the appropriate DFARS provisions and clauses to reflect the addition of Guatemala and Bahrain as Free Trade Agreement countries.

DoD received no comments on the interim rule. Therefore, DoD has adopted the interim rule as a final rule without change.

Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement; Electronic Submission and Processing of Payment Requests (DFARS Case 2005-D009)

AGENCY: Defense Acquisition Regulations System, Department of Defense (DoD).

ACTION: Final rule.

SUMMARY: DoD has issued a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to update policy addressing requirements for DoD contractors to submit payment requests in electronic form. The rule clarifies the situations under which DoD will grant exceptions to requirements for electronic submission of payment requests.

EFFECTIVE DATE: March 27, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. John McPherson, Defense Acquisition Regulations System, OUSD(AT&L)DPAP(DARS), IMD 3C132, 3062 Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-3062. Telephone (703) 602-0296; facsimile (703) 602-0350. Please cite DFARS Case 2005-D009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background This final rule amends DFARS Subpart 232.70 and the corresponding contract clause at 252.232-7003 to clarify the situations under which DoD will grant exceptions to requirements for electronic submission of payment requests. DoD published a proposed rule at 71 FR 14149 on March 21, 2006. Two sources submitted comments on the proposed rule. A discussion of the comments is provided below.

1. Comment: One respondent recommended expansion of the DFARS text that permits the administrative contracting officer to authorize submission of a non-electronic payment request, to also provide this authority to the procuring contracting officer. The respondent stated that the expansion is necessary to identify authorized officials for contracts that are not administered by the Defense Contract Management Agency.

DoD Response: DoD agrees that this authority belongs to the contracting officer administering the contract. However, there may be several contracting officers providing administrative support for a contract. Therefore, DoD has revised the rule to make this approval the responsibility of the contracting officer administering the contract for payment.

2. Comment: One respondent stated there should be a distinction between the requirement for contractors to submit payment requests in electronic form and the requirement for DoD procurement officials to process supporting documents in electronic form.

DoD Response: It is DoD policy for all required documentation to be submitted and processed in electronic form to facilitate the payment process. DoD believes the DFARS rule implements this policy and has made no related changes regarding this requirement in the final rule.

3. Comment: One respondent recommended limiting the alternative payment request methods to conventional mail or facsimile. The respondent pointed out that each new alternative method of submission requires the establishment of business rules to properly monitor payment requests and to ensure timely payment. In addition, submission by methods such as e-mail will require the printing and scanning of documents and will increase the workload of the payment office.

DoD Response: The final rule includes changes that limit the alternative payment request methods to conventional mail or facsimile. DoD recognizes that the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) has established procedures with adequate controls for the paper and facsimile submission process to ensure prevention of duplicate payments and to provide an adequate audit trail. E-mail submission is not viable at this time, because DFAS presently does not have procedures in place to process such submissions and to maintain sufficient process control.

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

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act DoD certifies that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., because the rule is designed to avoid any such impact by permitting alternative means of requesting payment when submission of electronic payment requests would be unduly burdensome to a contractor.

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.

(5) Purchases to support unusual or compelling needs of the type described in FAR 6.302-2;

(6) Cases in which DoD is unable to receive payment requests in electronic form; or

(7) Cases in which the contracting officer administering the contract for payment has determined, in writing, that electronic submission would be unduly burdensome to the contractor.

(b) DoD officials receiving payment requests in electronic form shall process the payment requests in electronic form. Any supporting documentation necessary for payment, such as receiving reports, contracts, contract modifications, and required certifications, also shall be processed in electronic form. Scanned documents are acceptable forms for processing supporting documentation.

(c) When payment requests will not be submitted in electronic form--

(1) Payment requests shall be submitted by facsimile or conventional mail. The contracting officer shall consult with the payment office and the contract administration office regarding the method of payment request to be used; and

(2) Section G of the contract shall specify the method of payment request.

232.7003 [Amended]

(d) The Contractor shall submit any non-electronic payment requests using the method or methods specified in Section G of the contract.

Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement; Prohibition on Acquisition from Communist Chinese Military Companies (DFARS Case 2006-D007)

AGENCY: Defense Acquisition Regulations System, Department of Defense (DoD).

ACTION: Final rule.

SUMMARY: DoD has adopted as final, without change, an interim rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to implement Section 1211 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2006. Section 1211 prohibits DoD from acquiring United States Munitions List items from Communist Chinese military companies.

EFFECTIVE DATE: March 27, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Amy Williams, Defense Acquisition Regulations System, OUSD(AT&L)DPAP(DARS), IMD 3C132, 3062 Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-3062. Telephone (703) 602-0328; facsimile (703) 602-0350. Please cite DFARS Case 2006-D007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background DoD published an interim rule at 71 FR 53045 on September 8, 2006, to implement Section 1211 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2006 (Public Law 109-163). Section 1211 prohibits DoD from acquiring goods or services, through a contract or a subcontract with a Communist Chinese military company, if the goods or services being acquired are on the munitions list of the International Trafficking in Arms Regulations (the United States Munitions List (USML) at 22 CFR Part 121).

One source submitted comments on the interim rule. That source recommended addition of an exception to the policy that, before issuance of a solicitation, the requirements activity must notify the contracting officer whether the items to be acquired are on the USML. The exception would apply to items that include critical military technology, since those items are already subject to controls that limit issuance of the solicitation and the associated technical data package to United States and Canadian firms.

DoD does not agree with the recommended change. A company located in the United States or Canada could fall within the definition of a Communist Chinese military company if it is owned or controlled by, or affiliated with, an element of the Government or armed forces of the People's Republic of China. Also, the prohibition applies to subcontracts as well as contracts. An item of critical military technology could contain a subcontracted component that is not subject to the same controls as the end item, but is on the USML. Therefore, the contracting officer needs the specified notification from the requirements activity to identify all USML items and to ensure that the clause at DFARS 252.225-7007 is included in solicitations and contracts for those items.

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

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act DoD certifies that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., because the rule affects only those entities that are a part of the industrial base of the People's Republic of China or that are owned or controlled by, or affiliated with, an element of the Government or armed forces of the People's Republic of China.

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.
