SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

This Defense Acquisition Circular (DAC) 91-12 includes 43 rules and miscellaneous editorial amendments. Twelve of the rules

(Items I, III, VII, IX, XIV, XVII, XIX, XXII, XXIV, XXVII, XXXIII, and XXXIX) werepublished previously in the Federal Register and thus are not included as part of this notice of amendments to the Code of Federal Regulations. These twelve rules are being published in the DAC to incorporate the previously published amendments into the loose-leaf edition of the DFARS.

The following information pertains to Item XVIII, Authority to Waive Foreign Purchase Restrictions:

An interim DFARS rule implementing Section 810 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1997 (Public 104-201) was published in the Federal Register on January 17, 1997 (62 FR 2615), with a request for public comments. Section 810, known as the ‘‘McCain Amendment,’’ added new authority to waive the restrictions on foreign purchases at 10 U.S.C. 2534(a), applicable to buses, chemical weapons antidote, components for naval vessels, and ball and roller bearings, permitting waiver if application of the restrictions would impede the reciprocal procurement of defense items under a memorandum of understanding with a foreign country. The interim rule provided this waiver authority to the head of the contracting activity.

Public comments were received from four respondents, all seeking more positive and effective implementation of the McCain Amendment. On April 7, 1997, the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition and Technology), waived the foreign source restrictions of 10 U.S.C. 2534(a) for the acquisition of defense items manufactured in qualifying countries listed in DFARS 225.872-1. This interim rule implements the waiver only for those items restricted in the DFARS. The restrictions on most naval vessel components are handled by the Department of the Navy. Acquisitions of anchor and mooring chain, totally enclosed lifeboat survival systems, and noncommercial ball and roller bearings are subject to additional defense appropriations act restrictions. The acquisition of chemical weapons antidote is subject to U.S. defense mobilization base requirements.

B. Determination To Issue an Interim Rule

A determination has been under the authority of the Secretary of Defense that urgent and compelling reasons exist to publish this interim rule prior to affording the public an opportunity to comment. This action is necessary to implement the waiver by the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition and Technology) of the restrictions of 10 U.S.C. 2534(A). The waiver is authorized by 10 U.S.C. 2534(d)(3), as amended by Section 810 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1997 (Public Law 104-201); the waiver became effective on April 7, 1997. Comments received in response to the publication of this interim rule will be considered in formulating the final rule.

C. Regulatory Flexibility Act

DAC 91-12, Items II, IV, V, XII, XIII, XV, XXIII, XXVIII, XXXVI, XXXVII, XXXVIII, XLI, XLII, and XLIII.

These rules do not constitute significant revisions within the meaning of Federal Acquisition Regulation 1.501 and Public Law 98-577, and publication for public comment is not required.However, comments from small entities concerning the affected DFARS subparts will be considered in accordance with Section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 610). Please cite the applicable DFARS case number in correspondence.

DAC 91-12 Items VI, VIII, X, XI, XVI, XX, XXI, XXVI, XXIX, XXX, XXXI, XXXII, XXXIV, and XXXV DoD certifies that these rules 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:

Item VI, Institutions of Higher Education-This rule applies only to institutions of higher education that are determined to have an anti-ROTC policy.

Item VII, U.S. European Command Supplement-The rule applies only to contracts that are awarded or performed in a foreign country. More than 90 percent of such contracts are awarded to foreign firms. Those U.S. firms that are awarded such contracts generally are not small entities.

Item X, Certificate of Competency- The rule merely updates and clarifies existing policy pertaining to (1) the Small Business Administration Certificate of Competency Program, and (2) procurement from small disadvantaged business regular dealers.

Item XI, Comprehensive Subcontracting Plans-Small businesses are exempt from subcontracting plan requirements, and the rule does not change the obligation of large business concerns to maximize subcontracting opportunities for small business concerns.

Item XVI, Petroleum Products from Caribbean Basin and products derived from petroleum already are subject to the Trade Agreements Act. The consideration of Caribbean Basin country offers of petroleum and products derived from petroleum is not expected to have a significant effect on the petroleum market in this country. Furthermore, the Trade Agreements Act and the Caribbean Basin Economic Recovery Act apply only to acquisitions exceeding $190,000 in value.

Item XX, Preference for U.S. Firms on MILCON Overseas Construction-The rule applies only to contracts estimated to exceed $1,000,000 for military construction projects in the United States territories and possessions in the Pacific and on Kwajalein Atoll, or in countries bordering the Arabian Gulf.

Item XXI, Restriction on MILCON Overseas Architect-Engineer Contracts- The rule applies only to architect-engineer contracts estimated to exceed $500,000 for projects to be accomplished in Japan, in any North Atlantic Treaty Organization member country, or in countries bordering the Arabian Gulf.

Item XXVI, Carbon Fiber-The only known domestic manufacturer of coal and petroleum pitchcarbon fiber is a large business concern.

Item XXIX, Individual Compensation-Most contracts awarded to small entities use simplified acquisition procedures or are awarded on a competitive, fixed-price basis, and do not require application of the FAR or DFARS cost principles. In addition, this rule applies only to contractors that incur individual compensation costs in excess of $200,000 per year.

Item XXX, Individual Compensation-Most contracts awarded to small entities use simplified acquisition procedures or are awarded on a competitive, fixed-price basis, and do not require application of the FAR or DFARS cost principles. In addition, this rule applies only to contractors that incur individual compensation costs in excess of $250,000 per year.

Item XXXI, Restricting Costs/ Bonuses-Most contracts awarded to small entities use simplified acquisition procedures or are awarded on a competitive, fixed-price basis, and do not require application of the FAR or DFARS cost principles. In addition, this rule applies only to contractors that incur restructuring costs associated with a business combination.

Item XXXII, Restructuring Costs- Most contracts awarded to small entities use simplified acquisition procedures or are awarded on a competitive, fixed-price basis, and do not require application of the FAR or DFARS cost principles. In addition, this rule applies only to contractors that incur restructuring costs associated with a business combination.

Item XXXIV, Information Technology Management Reform Act-The rule primarily pertains to internal Government considerations regarding the acquisition of information technology.

Item XXXV, Automatic Data Processing Equipment Leasing Costs- Most contracts awarded to small entities use simplified acquisition procedures or are awarded on a competitive, fixed-price basis, and do not require application of the FAR or DFARS cost principles. In addition, this rule merely removes references and requirements pertaining to a cost principle that already has been removed from the FAR. DAC 91-12,

Item XVIII This interim rule is not expected 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., because there are no known small business manufacturers of buses, air circuit breakers, or the restricted chemical weapons antidote; acquisition of anchor and mooring chain, totally enclosed lifeboat survival systems, and noncommercial ball and roller bearings is presently restricted to domestic sources by defense appropriations acts; and the restrictions of 10 U.S.C. 2534 do not apply to purchases of commercial items incorporating ball or roller bearings. An initial regulatory flexibility analysis has therefore not been prepared. Comments are invited from small businesses and other interested parties. Comments from small entities concerning the affected DFARS subparts also will be considered in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Such comments should be submitted separately and should cite DFARS Case 96-D319 in correspondence. DAC 91-12,

Items XXV and XL A final regulatory flexibility analysis has been performed for each of these rules. A copy of the analysis may be obtained from the address specified herein. Please cite the applicable DFARS case number in correspondence. The analyses are summarized as follows:

Item XXV, Ball and Roller Bearings- Waiver (DFARS Case 97-D300)-This rule implements 10 U.S.C. 2534(d)(6) with regard to the acquisition of ball and roller bearings. 10 U.S.C. 2534(d)(6) provides that the Secretary of Defense may waive the domestic source restrictions of 10 U.S.C. 2534(a) for an acquisition that is for an amount less than the simplified acquisition threshold, when simplified acquisition procedures are being used. Because of other statutory provisions that pertain to the acquisition of ball and roller bearings, the waiver authority in this rule may be used only if (1) ball and roller bearings or bearing components are the end items being purchased, and (2) the ball and roller bearings or bearing components are commercial items, or no fiscal year 1996 or 1997 funds are being used. No comments were received in response to the initial regulatory flexibility analysis or the proposed rule published in the Federal Register at 62 FR 7432 on February 19, 1997. It is estimated that 11 small businesses could be affected by this rule. The rule imposes no new reporting, record keeping, or compliance requirements for offerors or contractors. There are no practical alternatives that will fully implement the provisions of 10 U.S.C. 2534(d)(6).

Item XL, notice of termination (DFARS Case 96-D320)-This rule implements Section 824 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1997 (Public Law 104-201). Section 824 streamlines the statutory requirements for providing notification to contractors and subcontractors regarding contract terminations or reductions that are expected to occur as a result of reduced funding levels under major defense programs. No comments were received in response to the initial regulatory flexibility analysis. However, one comment was received in response to the interim rule published in the Federal Register at 61 FR 64636 on December 6, 1996. The comment reserved judgment on whether a 60-day notification period affords industry, particularly smaller firms, sufficient time to adjust to substantial funding reductions to, or terminations of, major defense program contracts. The industry association that authored the comment stated that its member companies will monitor implementation experience, and, if necessary, will recommend additional actions concerning the new notification procedures. No changes were made to the rule as a result of the public comment, because (1) the 60-day notification period is required by Section 824 of Public Law 104-201; (2) and the comment did not indicate a need for a change to the rule at this time. The rule applies to all large and small entities that have, under a major defense program, a prime contract, a first-tier subcontract of $500,000 or more, or a lower-tier subcontract$100,000 or more, that is expected to be terminated or substantially reduced as a result of reduced funding levels in an appropriations act. The rule imposes no additional reporting, record keeping, or compliance requirements on offerors or contractors. There are no practical alternatives that will adequately implement the requirements of Section of 824 of Public Law 104-201. D. Paperwork Reduction Act DAC 91-12,

Items, II, IV, V, VI, X, XI, XII, XIII, XV, XVI, XVIII, XXI, XXIII, XXV, XXVI, XXVIII, XXIX, XXX, XXXI, XXXII, XXXIV, XXXV, XXXVI, XXXVII, XXXVIII, XL, XLI, XLII, XLIII.

The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply, because these rules impose no information collection requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. DAC 91-12,

Items VIII and XX The Paperwork Reduction Act applies. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has approved the information collection requirements as follows:

Defense Acquisition Circular (DAC) 91-12 amends the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 1991 edition. The amendments are summarized as follows:

Item I-Procurement Integrity (DFARS Case 96-D310)

This final rule was issued by Departmental Letter 97-003, effective January 17, 1997 (62 FR 2611, January 17, 1997). The rule amends DFARS Subpart 203.1 and 215.608, and removes the clause at 252.203-7000, to implement Section 4304 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1996 (Public Law 104-106) and to conform to the FAR revisions published as Item I of Federal Acquisition Circular 90-45. Section 4304 amended the procurement integrity provisions at 41 U.S.C. 423 and repealed 10 U.S.C. 2397- 2397c, which addressed post-Federal employment of certain DoD employees.

Item II-Reporting Real Property Leases (DFARS Case 97-D001)

This final rule amends DFARS 204.670-2(a) to clarify that the requirement to complete a DD Form 350 for contracting actions that obligate or deobligate more than $25,000 also applies to DoD actions that are for the purchase of land or rental or lease of real property.

Item III-Contract Reporting for Fiscal Year 1997 (DFARS Case 97-D315)

This final rule was issued by Departmental Letter 96-017, effective October 1, 1996 (61 FR 51030, September 30, 1996). The rule amends DFARS Parts 204 and 253 to revise DD Form 350 and DD Form 1057 contract action reporting requirements, for compliance with provisions of the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act of 1994 (Public Law 103-355).

Item IV-Commercial Transactions with the Government of a Terrorist Country (DFARS Case 96-D026)

This final rule removes DFARS 209.104-1(g)(iii), 209.104-70(c) and (d), 252.209-7003, and 252.209-7004, which pertained to contractor disclosure of information commercial transactions with the Government of a terrorist country. The statutory authority for this disclosurerequirement (Section 843 of Public Law 103-160) expired on September 30, 1996.

Item V-Foreign Environmental Technology (DFARS Case 96-D322)

This final rule amends DFARS 209.104-1 to implement Section 828 of the National Defense Authorization Act of Fiscal Year 1997. Section 828 provides that the Secretary of Defense may, in the case of a contract for environmental restoration, remediation, or waste management at a DoD facility, waive the prohibition on award of a contract to an entity controlled by a foreign government under certain circumstances.

Item VI-Institutions of Higher Education (DFARS Case 96-D305)

The interim rule published as Item VI of DAC 91-11 is converted to a final rule without change. The rule amended DFARS 209.470 and 243.105 to implement Section 541 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1996 (Public Law 104-106). Section 541 provides that no funds available to DoD may be provided by grant or contract to any institution of higher education that has an anti-ROTC policy.

Item VII-Elimination of Certifications (DFARS Case 96-D306)

This final rule was issued by Departmental Letter 97-004, effective January 17, 1997 (62 FR 2612, January 17, 1997). The rule amends DFARS Parts 215, 219, 225, 226, 227, 233, and 252 to remove certification requirements for contractors and offerors that are not required by statute or otherwise approved for retention by the Secretary of Defense. The rule implements Section 4301(b) of the Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996 (Public Law 104-106).

Item VIII-U.S. European Command Supplement (DFARS Case 94-D001) This final rule amends DFARS Parts 216, 222, 225, 227, 228, 229, 232, 233, 236, 246, and 252 to incorporate guidance previously contained in the U.S. European Command Supplement for application to contracts to be performed in a foreign country. Contracts to be performed in a foreign country must include requirements imposed by the host country’s government in addition to U.S. Government requirements, and must provide for customs and tax exemptions to which the U.S. Government is entitled.

Item IX-MILCON-Environmental Restoration (DFARS Case 96-D327) This final rule was issued by Departmental Letter 97-001, effective January 8, 1997 (62 FR 1058, January 8, 1997). The rule revises DFARS 216.306 to implement Section 101 of the Military Construction Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 1997 (Public Law 104-196). Section 101 continues to restrict the use of cost-plus-fixed-fee contracts for military construction, but provides an exception for contracts for environmental restoration at installations that are being closed or realigned where payments are made from a base realignment and closure account.

Item X-Certificate of Competency (DFARS Case 96-D003)

This final rule amends DFARS 219.602-3 and 252.219-7006 to (1) update the reference to the Small Business Administration offices involved in resolving differences between an agency and the Small Business Administration; (2) remove references to Section 8051 of Public Law 103-139 and Section 8012 of Public Law 103-335, which applied only to contracts awarded during fiscal years 1994 and 1995; and (3) clarify existing text.

Item XI-Comprehensive Subcontracting Plans (DFARS Case 96- D304) The interim rule published as Item VIII of DAC 91-11 is converted to a final rule with an amendment at 252.219-7004. The rule reflects changes to the Test Program for Negotiation of Comprehensive Small Business Subcontracting Plans, as required by Section 811 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1996 (Public Law 104-106). The final rule differs form the interim rule in that it amends the clause at 252.219-7004 to clarify instructions for contractor submission of Standard Form 295, Summary Subcontract Report.

Item XII-Bond Waivers (DFARS Case 96-D019)

This final rule removes DFARS 219.808, 219.811, and 252.219-7007, which pertained to waiver of Miller Act requirements for performance and payment bonds under 8(a) construction contracts. The statutory authority for waiver of these requirements (Section 813 of Public Law 102-190) applied only to contracts awarded during fiscal years 1992 through 1994.

Item XIII-Small Business Competitiveness Demonstration Program (DFARS Case 96-D025)

This final rule amends DFARS 219.1005 to remove dredging from the list of designated industry groups under the Small Business Competitiveness Demonstration Program. Dredging had been added to the list as part of a test program established under Section 722 of the Small Business Credit and Business Opportunity Enhancement Act of 1992 (Public Law 102-366). The statutory authority for the test program expired on September 30, 1996.

Item XIV-Pilot Mentor-Prote' ge' Program (DFARS Case 96-D317) This final rule was issued by Departmental Letter 96-018, effective October 18, 1996 (61 FR 54346, October 18, 1996). The rule amends DFARS 219.7104 and Appendix I to implement Section 802 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1997 (Public Law 104-201). Section 802: (1) Extends to September 30, 1998, the date by which an interested company must apply for participation as a mentor firm under the DoD Pilot Mentor-Prote' ge' Program; and (2) extends to September 30, 1999, the date by which a mentor firm must incur costs in order to be eligible for reimbursement under the Program.

Item XV-Nondomestic Construction Materials (DFARS Case 97-D009) This final rule removes the clause at DFARS 252.225-7004, Nondomestic Construction Materials, and the corresponding prescriptive language at 225.205. The DFARS clause has been superseded by the clauses at FAR 52.225-5, Buy American Act- Construction Materials, and 52.225-15, Buy American Act-Construction Materials under Trade Agreements Act and North American Free Trade Agreement, as amended by Federal Acquisition Circular 90-46.

Item XVI-Petroleum Products from Caribbean Basin Countries (DFARS Case 96-D312)

The interim rule published as Item XI of DAC 91-11 is converted to a final rule without change.The rule amended DFARS 225.403 to fully implement Section 8094 of the National Defense Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 1994 (Public Law 103-139). Section 8094 requires DoD to consider all qualified bids from eligible countries under the Caribbean Basin Economic Recovery Act as if they were offers from designated countries under the Trade Agreements Act. The rule also amended DFARS 225.403-70 and 252.225-7007 to clarify that the definition of Caribbean Basin country end products includes petroleum and any end product derived from petroleum.

Item XVII-Metalworking Machinery- Trade Agreements (DFARS Case 96- D030)

This final rule was issued by Departmental Letter 97-005, effective January 17, 1997 (62 FR 2615, January 17, 1997). The rule amends DFARS 225.403-70 to remove the exception to application of the trade agreements acts for those machine tools for which acquisition was previously, but is no longer, restricted by 10 U.S.C. 2534. As a result, all metal working machinery products in Federal Supply Group 34 are subject to the trade agreements acts.

Item XVIII- Authority To Waive Foreign Purchase Restrictions (DFARS Case 96-D319)

This interim rule supersedes the interim rule issued by Departmental Letter 97-006 on January 17, 1997. The rule amends DFARS 225.872, 225.70, and clauses at 252.225-7016 and 252.225-7029 to implement the waiver by the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition and Technology) of the foreign source restrictions of 10 U.S.C. 2534(a), for the acquisition of defense items manufactured in a qualifying county. This waiver is authorized by 10 U.S.C. 2534(d)(3), as amended by section 810 (the McCain Amendment) of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1997 (Public Law 104- 201).

Item XIX-Foreign Machine Tools and Powered and Non-Powered Valves (DFARS Case 96-D023)

This final rule was issued by Departmental Letter 96-019, effective November 15, 1996 (61 FR 58488, November 15, 1996). The rule amends DFARS Subpart 225.70, and removes the clause and provision at 252.225- 7017 and 252.225-7040, to reflect the expiration of the restriction on the acquisition of machine tools and powered and non-powered valves at 10 U.S.C. 2534. Related amendments are made at 212.504(a) and 252.212- 7001(b).

Item XX-Preference for U.S. Firms on MILCON Overseas Construction (DFARS Case 96-D328)

The interim rule issued by Departmental Letter 97-008, on January 17, 1997, is converted to a final rule without change. The rule amends DFARS 225.7000, 225.7003, 236.274, and 236.570, and adds a new provision at 252.236-7010, to implement Section 112 of the Military Construction Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 1997 (Public Law 104-196). Section 112 provides a 20 percent evaluation preference for U.S. firms on contracts estimated to exceed $1,000,000 for military construction projects in the U.S. territories and possessions in the Pacific and on Kwajalein atoll, or in countries bordering the Arabian Gulf.

Item XXI-Restriction on MILCON Overseas Architect-Engineer Contracts (DFARS Case96-D329)

The interim rule issued by Departmental Letter 97-008, on January 17, 1997, is converted to a final rule without change. The rule adds new sections at DFARS 225.7004 and 236.602-70, amends 236.102 and 236.609-70, and adds a new provision at 252.236-7011, to implement Section 111 of the Military Construction Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 1997 (Public Law 104-196). Section 111 restricts award of architect-engineer contracts estimated to exceed $500,000 for projects to be accomplished in Japan, in any North Atlantic Treaty Organization member country, or in countries bordering the Arabian Gulf, to U.S. firms or U.S. firms in joint venture with hose nation firms.

Item XXII-Application of Berry Amendment (DFARS Case 96-D333) This interim rule was issued by departmental Letter 97-009, effective February 7, 1997 (62 FR 5779, February 7, 1997). The rule amends DFARS 225.7002, 252.212-7001, 252.225-7012, and 252.225-7014; adds a new at 244.403 and a new clause at 252.244- 7000; and removes language at 212.504(a)(i). The rule implements Section 8109 of the National Defense Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 1997 (Public Law 104-208). Section 8109 provides that, in applying the Berry Amendment (10 U.S.C. 2241 note), the term ‘‘synthetic fabric and coated synthetic fabric’’ shall be deemed to include all textile fibers and yarns that are for use in such fabrics; and that the domestic source restrictions of the Berry Amendment shall apply to contracts and subcontracts for the procurement of commercial items.

Item XXIII-Aircraft Ejection Seats (DFARS Case 96-D022)

This final rule amends DFARS 225.7009 to remove the restriction on acquisition of aircraft ejection seats manufactured in a foreign nation, as the restriction applied only to contracts awarded using funds appropriated for fiscal years 1984 through 1989.

Item XXIV-Ball and Roller Bearings (DFARS Case 96-D331)

This final rule was issued by Departmental Letter 96-019, effective November 15, 1996 (61 FR 58489, November 15, 1996). The rule amends DFARS 225.7019-1 to reflect the extension, beyond fiscal year 1996, of the requirement to acquire ball and roller bearings from domestic sources when using appropriated funds.

This interim rule was issued by departmental Letter 97-007, effective January 17, 1997 (62 FR 2616, January 17, 1997). The rule amends DFARS Subpart 225.73 and the clauses at 252.212.7001 and 252.225-7027 to conform to the FAR revisions published as

Item I of Federal Acquisition Circular 90-40. The FAR revisions removed requirements for prospective contractors to provide certain information to the Government regarding contingent fee arrangements. This interim rule makes the associated DFARS changes related to contingent fees under contracts for foreign military sales.

Item XXVIII-Offset Arrangements (DFARS Case 96-D018)

This final rule revises DFARS 225.7307 to update policy pertaining to DoD involvement in foreign military sale offset arrangements. In accordance with the Presidential policy statement of April 16, 1990, DoD does not encourage, enter into, or commit U.S. firms to foreign military sale offset arrangements. The decision whether to engage in offset arrangements, and the responsibility for negotiating and implementing such arrangements, resides with the companies involved.

Item XXIX-Individual Compensation (DFARS Case 96-D314)

The interim rule published as Item XX of DAC 91-11 is converted to a final rule without change. The rule amended DFARS Part 231 to implement Section 8086 of the National Defense Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 1996 (Public Law 104-61). Section 8086 limits allowable costs for individual compensation to $200,000 per year under DoD contracts awarded after July 1, 1996, that are funded by fiscal year 1996 appropriations.

Item XXX-Individual Compensation (DFARS Case 96-D330)

The interim rule issued by Departmental Letter 96-023 on December 13, 1996, is converted to a final rule without change.

Item XXXI-Restructuring Costs/ Bonuses (DFARS Case 96-D332)

The interim rule issued by Departmental Letter 96-020 on November 15, 1996, is converted to a final rule without change. The rule amends DFARS 231.205-6(f) to implement Section 8095 of the National Defense Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 1997 (Public Law 104-208). Section 8095 prohibits the use of fiscal year 1997 funds to reimburse a contractor for costs paid to an employee for a bonus or other payment in excess of the normal salary paid by the contractor to the employee, when such payment is part of restricting costs associated with a businesscombination.

Item XXXII-Restructuring Costs (DFARS Case 96-D334)

The interim rule issued by Departmental Letter 96-022, on December 6, 1996, is converted to a final rule without change.

Section 8115 prohibits the use of fiscal year 1997 funds to reimburse a contractor for external restructuring costs associated with a business combination unless certain conditions are met.

Item XXXIII-Earned Value Management Systems (DFARS Case 96- D024)

This interim rule was issued by Departmental Letter 97-011, effective March 5, 1997 (62 FR 9990, March 5, 1997). The rule amends DFARS Parts 234, 242, and 252 to recognize industry-standard guidelines for earned value management systems (EVMS) as an alternative to DoD-unique cost/schedule control systems under DoD contracts. Since DoD’s cost/schedule control systems criteria are considered to be equivalent to EVMS, contractors’ previously approved cost/schedule control systems are acceptable under the EVMS criteria. However, it is no longer necessary for DoD contractors to create or maintain DoD-unique cost/schedule control systems at facilities where acceptable EVMS exist.

Item XXXIV-Information Technology Management Reform Act (DFARS Case 96-D017)

The interim rule issued by Departmental Letter 97-002, on January 8, 1997, is converted to a final rule with minor editorial changes at 239.7003(f)(1), 239.7102-3, and 239.7302(b)(2)(i). The rule amends DFARS Part 239 to conform to the FAR revisions published as Item I of Acquisition Circular 90-41. The FAR revisions implemented the Information Technology Management Reform Act of 1996 (Division E of Public Law 104- 106).

Item XXXV-Automatic Data Processing Equipment Leading Cost (DFARS Case 96-D011)

The interim rule issued by Departmental Letter 97-010, on March 3, 1997, is converted to a final rule without change.

Item XXXVI-Contract Administration Under No-Charge Reciprocal Agreements (DFARS Case 96-D014)

This final rule amends DFARS 242.101 to specify that DoD may provide contract administration services to a non-DoD organization under a no-charge reciprocal agreement. The Arms Export Control Act (Public Law 90-629), as amended by Section 110 of Public Law 99-83, provides that the U.S. Government may perform contract administration services, without charge, for a foreign government that is a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, if the foreign government provides such services to the U.S. Government on a no-charge reciprocal basis.

Item XXXVII-Submission of Commercial Freight Bills (DFARS Case 97-D006)

This final rule removes the clause at DFARS 252.242-7002, Submission of Commercial Freight Bills for Audit, and the corresponding prescriptive language at 242.1404-2-70. The DFARS clause has been superseded by the clause at FAR 52.247-67, Submission of Commercial Transportation Bills to the General Services Administration for Audit.

Item XXXVIII-Monitoring Contractor Costs (DFARS Case 96-D029) This final rule removes DFARS Subpart 242.70, Monitoring Contractor Costs, to eliminate specific requirements for the establishment of formal programs for Government monitoring of contractor costs.

Item XXXIX-Downsizing Notice (DFARS Case 96-D321)

This final rule was issued by Departmental Letter 96-024, effective December 26, 1996 (61 FR 67952, December 26, 1996). The rule removes DFARS 249.102, 249.7002, 252.249- 7001, and DD Form 2604 to implement Section 825 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1997 (Public Law 104-201). Section 825 repealed the requirement for the Secretary of Defense to notify the Secretary of Labor if a modification or termination for convenience of a major defense contract or subcontract will have substantial impact on employment.

Item XL-Notice of Termination (DFARS Case 96-D320)

The interim rule issued by Departmental Letter 96-021 on December 6, 1996, is converted to a final rule without change.

Section 824 streamlines the statutory requirements for providing notification to contractors regarding contract terminations or reductions that are expected to occur as a result of reduced funding levels under major defense programs.

Item XLI-Economically Disadvantaged Representations (DFARS Case 97-D004)

Item XLIII-Caribbean Basin and Designated Countries (DFARS Case 96- D015)

This final rule amends the clause at DFARS 252.225-7007 to (1) add a definition of ‘‘Caribbean Basin country’’ in place of a reference to the definition at FAR 25.401, and (2) update the definition of ‘‘designated country’’ for conformance with the policy of the U.S. Trade Representative.
