I. Background

    DFARS 209.405-1 limits placement of orders against contracts with 
contractors that have been debarred, suspended, or proposed for 
debarment. On December 11, 2003, the final rule published under FAR 
Case 2002-010 (68 FR 69250) incorporated these restrictions into the 
FAR. The DFARS text, therefore, became redundant and is deleted by this 
final rule.

II. Executive Order 12866

    This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not 
subject to Office of Management and Budget review under section 6(b) of 
Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is not a 
major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804.

III. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act does not apply to this rule. This 
final rule does not constitute a significant DFARS revision within the 
meaning of 41 U.S.C. 418b and FAR 1.501, and publication for public 
comment is not required. However, DoD will consider comments from small 
entities concerning the affected DFARS parts in accordance with 5 
U.S.C. 610. Interested parties must submit such comments separately and 
should cite 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., in correspondence.

IV. Paperwork Reduction Act

    This rule does not impose any new information collection 
requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and 
Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.
