48 CFR Part 219

RIN 0750-AH06

Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement; Repeal of the 
Small Business Competitiveness Demonstration Program (DFARS Case 2011-

AGENCY: Defense Acquisition Regulations System, Department of Defense 

ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: DoD is issuing a final rule amending the Defense Acquisition 
Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to implement section 1335 of the Small 
Business Jobs Act of 2010. Section 1335 repealed the Small Business 
Competitiveness Demonstration Program.

DATES: Effective Date: February 22, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Manual Quinones, 703-602-8383.


I. Background

    This final rule amends the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation 
Supplement by deleting subpart DFARS 219.10 to meet the requirements of 
section 1335 of the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010, (Pub. L. 111-240). 
Section 1335 amended the Business Opportunity Development Reform Act of 
1988 (Pub. L. 100-656) by striking title VII (15 U.S.C. 644 note). The 
repeal of the Small Business Competitiveness Demonstration Program 
became effective immediately upon the enactment. It will apply to the 
first full fiscal year after the September 27, 2010, date of enactment 
(Fiscal Year 2011). Therefore, the text at DFARS subpart 219.10 is 

[[Page 9681]]

II. Executive Order 12866

    This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not 
subject to review under Section 6(b) of the Executive Order 12866, 
Regulatory Planning and Review, 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 because 
an initial regulatory flexibility analysis is only required for 
proposed or interim rules that require publication for public comment 
(5 U.S.C. 603) and a final regulatory flexibility analysis is only 
required for final rules that were previously published for public 
comment, and for which an initial regulatory flexibility analysis was 
prepared (5 U.S.C. 604).
    This final rule does not constitute a significant DFARS revision as 
defined at FAR 1.501-1 because 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 the 
Government. Therefore, publication for public comment under 41 U.S.C. 
418b is not required.

IV. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The final rule does not contain any information collection 
requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and 
Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35).
