A. Background

    DoD published an interim rule at 73 FR 1823 on January 10, 2008, to 
implement Section 807 of the National

[[Page 3179]]

Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007 (Pub. L. 109-364) with 
regard to limitations on the performance of lead system integrator 
functions by DoD contractors. On January 28, 2008, Section 802 of the 
National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008 (Pub. L. 110-
181) placed additional limitations on DoD's use of lead system 
integrators. A second interim rule was published on July 15, 2009, 
amending the first interim rule. One comment was received after the 
comment period closed. The comment concerned the definitions of lead 
system integrator with system responsibility and lead system integrator 
without system responsibility. The comment was addressed in the interim 
rule published on July 15, 2009.
    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 application of the rule is limited to contractors performing 
lead system integrator functions for major DoD systems.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

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

Accordingly, the interim rule amending 48 CFR Parts 209, 237, and 252, 
which was published at 74 FR 34268 on July 15, 2009, is adopted as a 
final rule without change.
