32 CFR Part 290

[Docket ID: DOD-2017-OS-0020]
RIN 0790-AJ61

Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) Freedom of Information Act 

AGENCY: Defense Contract Audit Agency, DoD.

ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: This final rule removes DoD's regulation concerning the 
Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) Freedom of Information Act 
program. On February 6, 2018, the DoD published a revised FOIA program 
rule as a result of the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016. When the DoD FOIA 
program rule was revised, it included DoD component information and 
removed the requirement for component supplementary rules. The DoD now 
has one DoD-level rule for the FOIA program that contains all the 
codified information required for the Department. Therefore, this part 
can be removed from the CFR.

DATES: This rule is effective on June 11, 2018.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Keith Mastromichalis at 571-448-3153.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: It has been determined that publication of 
this CFR part removal for public comment is impracticable, unnecessary, 
and contrary to public interest since it is based on removing DoD 
internal policies and procedures that are publically available on the 
Department's website.
    DCAA internal guidance concerning the implementation of the FOIA 
within DCAA will continue to be published in DCAA Instruction No. 
5410.8 (available at http://www.dcaa.mil/Content/Documents/DCAAI_5410.8.pdf).
    This rule is one of 14 separate DoD FOIA rules. With the 
finalization of the DoD-level FOIA rule at 32 CFR part 286,

[[Page 26841]]

the Department is eliminating the need for this separate FOIA rule and 
reducing costs to the public as explained in the preamble of the DoD-
level FOIA rule published at 83 FR 5196-5197.
    This rule is not significant under Executive Order (E.O.) 12866, 
``Regulatory Planning and Review,'' therefore, E.O. 13771, ``Reducing 
Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs'' does not apply.
