SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    DoD, GSA, and NASA published a proposed rule in the Federal 
Register at 77 FR 57950 on September 18, 2012, to implement the 
positive law codification of Title 41, United States Code, ``Public 
Contracts'' (Pub. L. 111-350). Changes to standard forms were published 
in a correction document in the Federal Register at 77 FR 60343 on 
October 3, 2012.
    Furthermore, the rule proposed further updates to complete the 
implementation of the recodification of title 40 in the FAR (see final 
rule under FAR Case 2005-010, Title 40 of United States Code Reference 
Corrections, published in the Federal Register at 70 FR 57453 on 
September 30, 2005).
    The proposed rule included the following:
    1. Changes to citations (e.g., ``41 U.S.C. 10a-10d'' now reads ``41 
U.S.C. chapter 83'').
    2. Changes to the popular names of the Acts (e.g., the ``Service 
Contract Act of 1965'' is now the ``Service Contract Labor Standards 
statute''). A table providing the popular names of the Acts, the 
present statutory citation, and the new titles of the statutes appears 
at FAR 1.110. This table covers Acts under both Titles 40 and 41.
    3. Changes to terminology which did not involve substantive changes 
to the meaning of the statutes.
    4. Numerous minor corrections to the FAR apart from the changes 
directly due to the recodification, such as corrections to references 
to Title 10 of the United States Code; addition of codification 
citations are added for authorization acts, appropriations acts, and 
other public laws.
    Two respondents submitted comments on the proposed rule.

II. Discussion and Analysis

    The Civilian Agency Acquisition Council and the Defense Acquisition 
Regulations Council (the Councils) reviewed the comments in the 
development of the final rule. A discussion of the comments and the 
changes made to the rule as a result of those comments are provided as 
follows:

A. Summary of Significant Changes

    There are no changes in the final rule from those proposed, other 
than minor edits.

B. Analysis of Public Comments

1. Changes to the Popular Names of the Acts
a. Davis-Bacon Act
    Comment: One respondent was particularly concerned about removal of 
references to the Davis-Bacon Act. The respondent stated that there was 
no mandate to remove references to the Davis-Bacon Act from the FAR. 
The 2005 rulemaking, which amended the FAR to correct the statutory 
references to Title 40, was sufficient. The respondent also stated that 
the new phrase ``Wage Rate Requirements (Construction)'' does not 
appear in the statutory text itself, although the subchapter heading is 
``Wage Rate Requirements.''
    Furthermore, the respondent was concerned that the Department of 
Labor has not made similar changes in the Department of Labor 
regulations, which will result in confusion.
    Response: The codifications of Title 40 and Title 41 have removed 
all references to the popular names of the statutes codified therein. 
There are also conforming changes to other titles of the United States 
Code, to likewise remove the use of the popular names throughout the 
United States Code. When the Councils decided that the change was 
necessary for conformity to the United States Code, the 2005 case was 
reviewed and conforming changes to the statutory titles in Title 40 
were included in this case. Future changes to these sections of the 
United States Code will no longer be in terms of the old statutes, but 
in terms of the new codification. Therefore, the old popular names will 
gradually have little meaning to the newer workforce. As an aid to 
recognition of new statutory citations, the headings have been used to 
identify the statutes. In the case of ``Wage Rate Requirements,'' it 
appeared too generic, possibly leading to confusion with the wage rate 
requirements under the Service Contract Labor Standards statute. 
Therefore, when citing the title for 40 U.S.C. chapter 31, Subchapter 
IV, ``(Construction)'' has been added in parentheses, and when citing 
the statute, the regulations refer to it as the Construction Wage Rate 
Requirements statute.
    The Department of Labor has confirmed that it is in the process of 
updating its regulations to conform to the codification of Titles 40 
and 41.
b. Procurement Integrity Act and Truth in Negotiations Act
    Comment: One respondent comments that changing the name of the 
``Procurement Integrity Act'' to ``Restrictions on Obtaining and 
Disclosing Certain Information'' seems to take personal integrity as a 
government contractor or employee out of the picture and replace it 
with compliance with applicable rules. The respondent also expressed 
concern that the change in the title of the ``Truth in Negotiations 
Act'' to ``Truthful Cost or Pricing Data'' indicates that the 
Government does not care about dishonest or misleading conduct in 
negotiations as long as the underlying data is truthful.
    Response: The codification did not change the substance of the 
statutes, just the titles. The FAR did not create these titles but is 
reflecting the new statutory chapter titles in Title 41, as enacted 
into law.
2. Terminology Changes
    Comment: One respondent stated that some of the changes in the 
proposed rule indicate that the agencies no longer are interested in 
honesty in fact, but only in compliance with the law. According to the 
respondent, the Government is more interested in minor technicalities 
than the many serious issues necessary to maintain an honest and open 
procurement system.
    Response: The Defense Acquisition Regulations Council and the 
Civilian Agencies Acquisition Council (the Councils) continue to 
demonstrate an ongoing interest in the serious issues relating to 
honesty and openness in procurement, and important issues such as 
personal and organizational conflicts of interest, fairness and 
integrity in competition, and collection of data in the Federal Awardee 
Procurement Integrity Information System. However, the acquisition 
regulations must also stay current with all statutory changes, 
Executive orders, the regulations of other agencies (e.g., the 
Department of Labor and the Small Business Administration), finance and 
pricing issues, international agreements, and systems changes, as well 
as making any necessary technical corrections to ensure the accuracy of 
the regulations.
    The positive law codification of Title 41 did not involve any 
substantive changes to the meaning of the statutes. Nevertheless, the 
Councils undertook the effort to make all necessary changes to the FAR 
to make it consistent with Title 41, including terminology changes. 
Making a small change to maintain consistency with a statute does not 
indicate a lack of concern for the substantive issues.

[[Page 24194]]

C. Other Changes

    There are no other substantive changes in the final rule from those 
proposed.

III. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563

    Executive Orders (E.O.s) 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess 
all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public 
health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). E.O. 
13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, 
of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. 
The Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) has determined 
that this rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 
6(a)(3)(A) of E.O. 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, dated 
September 30, 1993. Therefore, this rule was not subject to OIRA review 
under section 6(b) of E.O. 12866. OIRA has determined that this rule is 
not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804.

IV. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Department of Defense, the General Services Administration, and 
the National Aeronautics and Space Administration certify that this 
final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial 
number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., because the rule does not 
change or add any policies or procedures. The rule merely updates 
references and terminology.

V. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35) does apply; 
however these changes to the FAR do not imposed additional information 
collection requirements to the paperwork burden previously approved 
under the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Control Numbers 9000-
0014, titled: Statement and Acknowledgment (SF 1413); 9000-0024,

agency. Notice of the decision shall be sent promptly by certified 
mail, return receipt requested. Rescission of contracts under the 
authority of the Act and demand for recovery of the amounts expended 
and property transferred therefor, is not a claim within the meaning of 
41 U.S.C. chapter 71, Contract Disputes, or part 33. Therefore, the

activities at, a United States facility in that country at the request 
of the government of that country; this does not apply if the closing 
of a facility or curtailment of activities is made pursuant to a
