The DFARS has been revised by 2 final rules and 1 technical amendment that were published on November 1, 2001, as follows:
Overseas Use of the Purchase Card in Contingency, Humanitarian, or Peacekeeping Operations (DFARS Case 2000-D019)
This final rule permits contracting officers supporting an overseas contingency,
humanitarian, or peacekeeping operation to use the Governmentwide commercial
purchase card on a stand-alone basis for purchases valued at or below the
simplified acquisition threshold. Use of the purchase card at this threshold
is subject to the existing conditions at DFARS 213.301 for overseas use
of the purchase card and the following additional conditions:
(1) The supplies or services must be immediately available; and (2) Only one delivery and one payment will be made.
Affected subpart: 213.3
Acquisition of Commercial Items (DFARS Case 95-D712)
This rule finalizes the interim rule published as Item XXXV of Defense Acquisition Circular 91-9 on November 30, 1995. The interim rule added policy pertaining to the acquisition of commercial items. The final rule is substantially the same as the interim rule, but updates the lists of provisions and clauses to be included in solicitations and contracts for commercial items.
Affected subparts/sections: 212.3; 252.212
This final rule makes administrative changes to the DFARS to update activity names and addresses, reference numbers, and terminology. In addition, the Table of Contents for Appendix F is updated to reflect the change made to Appendix F on October 1, 2001 (Change Notice 20011001).
Affected subparts/sections: 204.73; 207.4; 252.204; 253.204; Appendix F Table of Contents; Appendix G, Part 3

Anticompetitive Teaming (DFARS Case 99-D028)
This rule proposes amendments to the DFARS to specify that certain exclusive teaming arrangements may evidence violations of the antitrust laws. As a result of public comments received on a proposed rule on this subject that was published on November 18, 1999, this second proposed rule clarifies that not all exclusive teaming arrangements evidence violations of the antitrust laws.
