SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    On January 4, 2011, Public Law 111-350 enacted a new codified 
version of Title 41 United States Code (U.S.C.), entitled ``Public 
Contracts.'' The purpose of this proposed rule is to update all 
references to Title 41 in the FAR to conform to the positive law 
codification.
    Furthermore, this rule proposes 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).

II. Discussion and Analysis

    There are three types of changes throughout the FAR, including some 
standard forms:
    A. Change to the citation (e.g., ``41 U.S.C. 10a-10d'' now reads 
``41 U.S.C. chapter 83'').
    B. Change 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 is 
proposed at FAR 1.110. This table covers Acts under both titles 40 and 
41.
    C. Changes to terminology which did not involve substantive changes 
to the meaning of the statutes. The changes are summarized in the 
following table:

[[Page 57951]]

    Additionally, this case makes numerous minor corrections to the FAR 
apart from the changes directly due to the recodification:
     References to title 10 of the United States Code are 
corrected at FAR 6.302-5(c)(1), 7.102(a)(2), 7.103(a), 7.202(a), 
15.303(b)(4) and (6), 15.404-1(f)(2), 32.006-1(a), and 32.006-5.
     Codification citations are added for Authorization Acts, 
for Appropriations Acts and other public laws at FAR 8.602(a), 
9.402(d), 12.000, 12.102(g)(1), 12.504(a)(13), 16.505(a)(9), 19.201(d), 
23.704(b)(1)(ii), 25.405, 25.700(b), 26.400, 28.106-4(b), 28.106-6(d), 
31.205-1(f)(8), 32.112-1(a), 32.112-2(a), 52.212-5(a)(3) and (c)(7), 
(e)(1)(xiii), and in (e)(1)(ii)(M) of Alternate II; 52.213-
4(a)(1)(vii), (b)(1)(x), 52.226-6(b), and 52.228-12.
     FAR 12.201 deletes the reference to Public Law 103-355, 
which is already covered at 12.000.
     The title of the clause at FAR 52.244-6 is corrected at 
FAR 12.502(b) and 44.402(b).
     FAR 1.501 is corrected to conform to 41 U.S.C. 1707 and 
FAR 1.301.
     FAR 22.1502--the relationship of three statutes is 
conformed to language used in Executive Order 13126.
     Obsolete references are deleted at FAR 43.102(c) and 
50.103-3(c).
     The Executive order citation is added for FAR 52.222-54, 
Employment Eligibility Verification, at 52.212-5(e)(1)(xii) and 
Alternate II at (e)(1)(ii)(L).

III. Executive Order 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. 
This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not 
subject to review under section 6(b) of E.O. 12866, Regulatory Planning 
and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is not a major rule 
under 5 U.S.C. 804.

IV. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Department of Defense (DoD), the General Services 
Administration (GSA), and the National Aeronautics and Space 
Administration (NASA) do not expect this proposed rule to 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. 
Therefore, an Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis has not been 
performed. DoD, GSA, and NASA invite comments from small business 
concerns and other interested parties on the expected impact of this 
rule on small entities.
    DoD, GSA, and NASA will also consider comments from small entities 
concerning the existing regulations in subparts affected by the rule in 
accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Interested parties must submit such 
comments separately and should cite 5 U.S.C. 610 (FAR Case 2011-018) in 
all correspondence.

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 Control Number 1215-0017, 
titled: Records to be Kept by Employers-FLSA; 1215-0119, titled:

presented at the hearing. If the agency decision declares void and

and property to be returned to the agency, and reflect consideration of 
the fair value of any tangible benefits received and retained by the 
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 therefore, is not a claim within the meaning

authorizes agencies to require a contractor to continue contract 
performance in accordance with the contracting officer's decision

    (c) Delivery of end products. 41 U.S.C. chapter 83, Buy

addition the Contracting Officer has determined that FTAs (except 
the Bahrain, Morocco, Oman, and Peru FTAs) and the Israeli Trade Act

deliver under this contract only domestic end products except to the 
extent that, in its offer, it specified delivery of foreign end 
products in the provision entitled ``Buy American--Free Trade 
Agreements--Israeli Trade Act Certificate.'' If the Contractor 
specified in its offer that the Contractor would supply a Free Trade 
Agreement country end product (other than a Bahrainian, Moroccan, 
Omani, or Peruvian end product) or an Israeli end product, then the 
Contractor shall supply a Free Trade Agreement country end product
