DOD/DARC RIN: 0750-AG47 Publication ID: Fall 2011 
Title: Safeguarding Unclassified DoD Information (DFARS Case 2011-D039) 
Abstract: This rule amends the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to add a DFARS subpart and associated contract clauses to address requirements for the safeguarding of unclassified information within contractor information systems. This rule addresses the safeguarding requirements specified in Executive Order 13556, Controlled Unclassified Information. The purpose of this proposed DFARS rule is to implement adequate security measures to safeguard unclassified DoD information within contractor information systems from unauthorized access and disclosure, and to prescribe reporting to DoD certain events that affect DoD information existing in or traveling through contractor unclassified information systems. DoD published an Advance Notice of proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) and notice of public meeting in the Federal Register at 75 FR 9563 on March 3, 2010, to provide the public an opportunity for input into the initial rulemaking process. The ANPRM addressed basic and enhanced safeguarding procedures for the protection of DoD information. DoD estimates that the rule will apply to approximately 76 percent of the small businesses that will be required to provide protection of DoD information at an enhanced level. DoD will invite comments from small business concerns and other interested parties on the expected impact of this rule on small entities.
