Title: Business Systems--Definition and Administration (DFARS Case 2009-D038) 
Abstract: DoD is adopting as final, with changes, an interim rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to improve the effectiveness of DoD oversight of contractor business systems. Section 893 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011 established statutory requirements for the improvement of contractor business systems to ensure that such systems provide timely, reliable information for the management of DoD programs. In accordance with section 893, DoD is issuing a rule to improve the effectiveness of DCMA/DCAA oversight and clarify the definition and administration of contractor business systems. The rule addresses comments received under the interim rule for this case, as well as statutory requirements of section 893 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011. DoD published an interim rule with request for comments on May 18, 2011 (76 FR 28856). The rule will apply to solicitations and contracts that are subject to the Cost Accounting Standards (CAS) under 41 U.S.C. chapter 15, as implemented in regulations found at 48 CFR 9903.201-1 (see the FAR Appendix). Since contracts and subcontracts with small businesses are exempt from CAS requirements, DoD estimates that this rule will have no impact on small businesses.
