The DFARS has been revised by 4 final rules and technical amendments published on June 27, 2000, as follows:
This final rule revises DD Form 350, Individual Contracting Action Report,
and DD Form 1057, Monthly Summary of Contracting Actions, and corresponding
instructions, to reflect fiscal year 2001 contract action reporting
The rule contains reporting changes related to North American Industry
Classification System codes (to replace Standard Industrial Classification
codes), service-disabled veteran-owned small business concerns, bundled
contracts, multiple award contracts, and performance-based service contracts.
In addition, the format of the forms is changed. The new forms use a linear format, instead of a block format, to facilitate electronic use of the forms and to accommodate the increasing amount of information that must be reported on the forms.
This rule will become effective on October 1, 2000. Therefore, the changes in this rule will be incorporated into the DFARS on October 1, 2000.
