SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    On August 26, 2015, DoD published an interim rule (DFARS Case 2013-
D018) in the Federal Register at 80 FR 51739 revising the DFARS to 
implement section 941 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) 
for Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 (Pub. L. 112-239) and section 1632 of the 
NDAA for FY 2015 (Pub. L. 113-291). Section 941 requires cleared 
defense contractors to report penetrations of networks and information 
systems and allows DoD personnel access to equipment and information to 
assess the impact of reported penetrations. Section 1632 requires that 
a contractor designated as operationally critical must report each time 
a cyber incident occurs on that contractor's network or information 
systems. This rule also implements DoD policies and procedures for use 
when contracting for cloud computing services.
    The due date for comments on the interim rule (DFARS Case 2013-
D018) is being extended from October 26, 2015 to November 20, 2015, to 
provide additional time for interested parties to submit comments on 
the interim rule.
