SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 16, 2013, at 78 FR 42392 (available at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-07-16/pdf/2013-16967.pdf). SBA published a final rule 
on subcontracting to implement provisions of the Small Business Jobs 
Act of 2010.
    The final rule established SBA's policies for subcontracting 
compliance, including assignment of compliance responsibilities between 
contracting offices, small business offices, and program offices. Need 
for correction.
    As published, the final regulations contain incorrect cross-
references which may prove to be misleading and need to be clarified. 
The cross reference in 13 CFR section 125.3(g)(4) to ``paragraphs 
(g)(2)(i) and (g)(2)(ii)'' is corrected to refer to ``paragraphs 
(g)(1)(i) and (g)(1)(ii).''
