SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    DoD published an interim rule at 72 FR 2631 on January 22, 2007, to 
provide a single reference to the acquisition flexibilities that may be 
used to facilitate and expedite DoD acquisitions of supplies and 
services during emergency situations. The rule supplements the 
Governmentwide acquisition flexibilities found in Part 18 of the 
Federal Acquisition Regulation.
    DoD received no comments on the interim rule. Therefore, DoD has 
adopted the interim rule as a final rule without change.
    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 a compilation of existing authorities, and makes no 
change to DoD contracting policy.

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.

List of Subjects in 48 CFR Chapter 2
