Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement; Definition of Terrorist Country (DFARS Case 2006-D034)
DATES: Effective Date: October 26, 2006.
DoD has issued a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to remove Libya from the list of terrorist countries subject to a prohibition on DoD contract awards. This change is a result of the Department of State's removal of Libya from the list of countries designated as state sponsors of terrorism.
Libya; removal from list of terrorist countries,
The provision at DFARS 252.2097001, Disclosure of Ownership or Control by the Government of a Terrorist Country, implements 10 U.S.C. 2327, which prohibits DoD from entering into a contract with a firm that is owned or controlled by the government of a country that has been determined by the Secretary of State to repeatedly provide support for acts of international terrorism. This final rule removes Libya from the terrorist countries listed in the provision at DFARS 252.2097001, since the Secretary of State has removed Libya from the list of designated state sponsors of terrorism.
This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993.
B. Regulatory Flexibility Act
This rule will not have a significant cost or administrative impact
on contractors or offerors, or a significant effect beyond the internal operating procedures of DoD. Therefore,
publication for public comment is not required. However, DoD will consider comments from small entities concerning the affected DFARS subpart in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Such comments should cite DFARS Case 2006D034.
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.
