Final Rule:

 

Extension of Partnership Agreement – 8(a) Program (DFARS Case 2004-D015)

 

Extends, from September 30, 2004, to September 30, 2005, the expiration date of a partnership agreement between DoD and the Small Business Administration.  The partnership agreement permits DoD contracting officers to award contracts to eligible 8(a) Program participants on behalf of the Small Business Administration.

Proposed Rule:

 

Patent Rights – Ownership by the Contractor (DFARS Case 2001-D015)

 

Proposes to add a DFARS clause on patent rights under contracts awarded to large business concerns for experimental, developmental, or research work.  The proposed clause is substantially the same as the clause presently found at FAR 52.227-12, Patent Rights—Retention by the Contractor (Long Form).  The clause at 52.227-12 was proposed for deletion from the FAR in a proposed rule published in the Federal Register on May 28, 2003, since DoD is the only agency that uses the clause. 

 

The Federal Register notice for this rule is available here.
