Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement; Small Business 
Program Name Change (DFARS Case 2008-D001)

AGENCY: Defense Acquisition Regulations System, Department of Defense 
(DoD).

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: DoD has issued a final rule amending the Defense Federal 
Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to reflect the redesignation 
of the ``Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization'' to 
the ``Office of Small Business Programs'' within DoD. The redesignation 
resulted from Section 904 of the National Defense Authorization Act for 
Fiscal Year 2006.

DATES: Effective Date: August 12, 2008.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Deborah Tronic, Defense 
Acquisition Regulations System, OUSD (AT&L) DPAP (DARS), IMD 3D139, 
3062 Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-3062. Telephone 703-602-
0289; facsimile 703-602-7887. Please cite DFARS Case 2008-D001.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Background

    Section 904 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal 
Year 2006 (Pub. L. 109-163) redesignated the ``Office of Small and 
Disadvantaged Business Utilization'' to the ``Office of Small Business 
Programs'' for DoD. This final rule amends the DFARS to reflect the 
redesignation.
    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 
under 41 U.S.C. 418b is not required. However, DoD will consider 
comments from small entities concerning the affected DFARS subparts in 
accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Such comments should cite DFARS Case 
2008-D001.

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.
