Positive Law Codification of Title 41 U.S.C.
September 20, 2011
DoD is issuing a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to conform references throughout the DFARS to the new Codification of Title 41, United States Code, ''Public Contracts.'' Effective date: September 20, 2011. Reference Federal Register Volume 76, Number 182 (Tuesday, September 20, 2011).
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 final rule is to update all references to Title 41 in the DFARS to conform to the recodification. DoD has issued a final rule because this rule does not have a significant effect beyond the internal operating procedures of DoD and does not have a significant cost or administrative impact on contractors or offerors. Therefore public comment is not required in accordance with 41 U.S.C. 1303.
