Antiterrorism Training Requirements for Contractors (DFARS Case 2017-D034)


Amends the DFARS to implement the antiterrorism training requirements for contractors provided in DoD Instruction O-2000.16, Volume 1, DoD Antiterrorism (AT) Program Implementation: DoD AT Standards. The rule will ensure contractors are aware of the requirement for contractor personnel, who as a condition of contract performance require routine physical access to a Federally-controlled facility or military installation, to complete Level I DoD antiterrorism awareness training. The training is required within 30 days of requiring access and annually thereafter, and must be completed either through DoD-sponsored and certified computer or web-based distance learning instruction, or under the instruction of a qualified Level I antiterrorism awareness instructor.

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  Part 204 Table of Contents (TOC), 204.72, 204.7200, 204.7201, 204.7202, 204.7203; 212.301; Part 252 TOC, 252.204-7004; DFARS TOC. PGI: 207.105; 225.372-1, 225.7801.

Exemption from Design-Build Selection Procedures (DFARS Case 2018-D011)


Amends the DFARS to implement section 823 of the NDAA for FY 2018. Section 823 modifies 10 U.S.C. 2305a to provide an exemption from the phase two design-build maximum of five offerors that are selected to submit competitive proposals for contracts exceeding $4 million. The exemption provides that if the contract value exceeds $4 million and the solicitation is issued pursuant to an indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract for design-build construction, the maximum number of offerors to be selected may exceed five. In addition, for other than IDIQ contracts, the rule provides authority to exceed the five offeror maximum when the contracting officer’s decision is approved by the head of the contracting activity, delegable to a level no lower than the senior contracting official within the contracting activity, when the solicitation is for a contract that exceeds $4 million.

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  Part 236 TOC, 236.303-1, and DFARS TOC.

The Federal Register notice for this rule is here.

Amendments Related to General Solicitations (DFARS Case 2018-D021)


Amends the DFARS to implement sections 221 and 861 of the NDAA for FY 2018 (Pub. L. 115-91). Section 221 amends 10 U.S.C. 2302(2)(B) to allow for an expanded application of other competitive procedures by replacing the words “basic research” with “science and technology”. Changing the words “basic research” to “science and technology” expands the meaning of other competitive procedures to apply to “advanced technology development” and “advanced component development and prototypes” research proposals, in addition to “basic research” and “applied research” proposals. Section 861 amends 10 U.S.C. 2302e to allow for an extended term limit and increased dollar threshold under the contract authority for advanced development of initial or additional prototype units awarded from a competitive selection, as specified in 10 U.S.C. 2302(2)(B). The statutory term limit extends from 12 months to 2 years and the dollar threshold increases from $20 million to $100 million in fiscal year 2017 constant dollars (10 U.S.C. 2302e).

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  Part 206 TOC, 206.1, 206.102; 215.371-4; 234.005-1; Part 235 TOC, 235.006-71, 235.016; and DFARS TOC.

Modification of DFARS Clause “Transportation of Supplies By Sea” (DFARS Case 2018-D028)


Amends the DFARS to remove the clause at DFARS 252.247-7024, Notification of Supplies By Sea, and incorporate those instructions in DFARS clause 252.247-7023, Transportation of Supplies By Sea. Combining these clauses will streamline instructions to contractors regarding notifications of transportation of supplies by sea. The modification and repeal of these DFARS clauses supports a recommendation from the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force established pursuant to E.O. 13777, "Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda."

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  212.301; 247.574; Part 252 TOC, 252.247-7023, 252.247-7024, 252.247.7025, 252.247-7026, and 252.247-7027. PGI: 201.106.

Extension of Supply Chain Risk Management Authority (DFARS Case 2018-D072)


Amends the DFARS to implement section 881 of the NDAA for FY 2019 (Pub. L. 115-232). Section 881 codifies the authority for information relating to supply chain risk at 10 U.S.C. 2339a and repeals the sunset date at sections 806(g) of the NDAA for FY 2011 (Pub. L. 111-383), as modified by section 806(a) of the NDAA for FY 2013 (Pub. L. 112-239), making the authority permanent.

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  212.301; 215.503, 215.506; 252.7300, 239.7301, 239.7302, 239.7303, 239.7304; 252.239-7017, and 252.239-7018.

PROPOSED RULES:


Undefinitized Contract Actions (DFARS Case 2018-D008)


Proposes to amend the DFARS to implement section 811 of the NDAA for FY 2017 (Pub. L. 114-328) and section 815 of the NDAA for FY 2018 (Pub. L. 115-91). Section 811 modifies restrictions on undefinitized contractual actions (UCA) regarding risk based profit, time for definitization, and foreign military sales. Section 815 establishes limitations on unilateral definitizations of UCAs over $50 million.

Proposed changes to parts/subparts/sections:  215.404-71-3; 217.7401, 217.7402, 217.7404, 217.7404-3, 217.7404-5, and 217.7404-6.

Small entity compliance guide:


FINAL RULES:


Electronic Submission and Processing of Payment Requests and Receiving Reports (DFARS Case 2016-D032)


Amends the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to clarify and, where necessary, update policies and procedures for providing electronic payment-related documents and for processing payment requests and receiving reports in Wide Area WorkFlow (WAWF). Title 10 of the United States Code (U.S.C.), section 2227, Electronic Submission and Processing of Claims for Contract Payments, requires that any claim for payment under a DoD contract be in electronic format. If electronic submission is unduly burdensome, 10 U.S.C. 2227 allows an exemption.

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  212.301; 232.7001, 232.7002, 232.7003, 232.7004; 246.370, 246.371, 246.471; Table of Contents 252; 252.232-7003; 252.232-7006; 252.246-7000; 252.246-7003; Appendix F-102, F-301, F-305, F-306.

The Federal Register notice for this rule is here.

Submission of Summary Subcontract Reports (DFARS Case 2017-D005)


Amends the DFARS to change the entity to which contractors submit Summary Subcontract Reports in the Electronic Subcontracting Reporting System (eSRS) and to change the entity that acknowledges receipt of, or rejects, the reports in eSRS. The rule implements a policy that streamlines the submission and review of Summary Subcontract Reports (SSRs) for DoD contractors and brings the DFARS into compliance with changes to the Federal Acquisition Regulation.

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  252.219-7003.

The Federal Register notice for this rule is here.

A Microsoft Word format document showing the DFARS changes made by this rule is here.

Restrictions on Acquisitions from Foreign Sources (DFARS Case 2017-D011)


Amends the DFARS to implement sections 817 and 881(b) of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2017. Section 817 extends the domestic source requirements of 10 U.S.C. 2533a (the Berry Amendment) below the simplified acquisition threshold, when acquiring athletic footwear to be furnished to the members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps upon their initial entry into the Armed Forces. Section 881(b) amends 10 U.S.C. 2500(1) by adding Australia and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to the United States and Canada as the countries within which the activities of the national technology and industrial base are conducted. 10 U.S.C. 2534, Miscellaneous Limitations on the Procurement of Goods Other Than United States Goods, requires that DoD only procure certain items if the manufacturer of the items is part of the national technology and industrial base.

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  225.7002-2, 225.7002-3, 2225.7004-1, 225.7004-3, 225.7006-1, 225.7006-3, 225.7006-4; 252.225-7037, and 252.225-7038.

The Federal Register notice for this rule is here.

A Microsoft Word format document showing the DFARS changes made by this rule is here.

Modification of the Limitations on Single-Source Task or Delivery Order Contracts (DFARS Case 2018-D060)


Amends the DFARS to implement section 816 of the NDAA for FY 2019. Section 816 amends 10 U.S.C. 2304a(d)(3)(A) by modifying the limitations on single-source task or delivery order contracts. Currently, FAR 16.504(c)(1)(ii)(D)(1)(i) prohibits the award of a task or delivery order contract in an amount exceeding $112 million to a single source unless the head of the agency determines that the orders expected under the contract are so integrally related that only a single source can reasonably perform the work. Section 816 amends this limitation in 10 U.S.C. 2304a to require the head of the agency to determine that only a single source can “efficiently perform the work,” instead of “reasonably perform the work” as required by 41 U.S.C. 4103. This rule adds text to DFARS 216.504 to require agency heads to make the determination required by section 816, in lieu of the determination at FAR 16.504(c)(1)(ii)(D)(1)(i).

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  216.504.

Foreign Commercial Satellite Services and Certain Items on the Commerce Control List (DFARS Case 2018-D020)

Section 1603 amends 10 U.S.C. 2279 to impose additional prohibitions with regard to acquisition of certain foreign commercial satellite services, such as cybersecurity risk and source of satellites and launch vehicles used to provide the foreign commercial satellite services. Section 1603 also expands the definition of "covered foreign country" to include Russia. Section 1296 prohibits purchase of items originating in the People's Republic of China that meet the definition of goods and services controlled as munitions items when moved to the Commerce Control List of the Export Administration Regulations of the Department of Commerce.

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  204.1202; 212.301; Table of Contents 225, 225.003; 227.770, 225.770-1, 225.770-2, 225.770-3, 225.770-4, 225.770-5; 225.772, 225.772-1, 225.772-2, 225.772-3, 225.772-4, 225.772-5; 225.1103; 252.204-7007; Table of Contents 252; 252.225-7007; 252.225-7049; 252.225-7050; and 252.225-7051.

Applicability of Inflation Adjustment of Acquisition Related Thresholds (DFARS Case 2018-D023)


Proposes to amend the DFARS to implement section 821 of the NDAA for FY 2018 (Pub. L. 115-91). Section 821 amends 41 U.S.C. 1908(d) to require that the inflation adjustments of statutory acquisition-related thresholds under 41 U.S.C. 1908 apply to existing contracts and subcontracts in effect on the date of the adjustment.

Proposed changes to parts/subparts/sections:  201.109, 209.571-1; Table of Contents 211, 211.7000; 252.203-7004; 252.209-7004, 252.209-7009, 252.219-7003, 252.219-7004, 252.225-7004, and 252.249-7002.

FINAL RULES:


Sunset of Provision Relating to the Procurement of Certain Goods (DFARS Case 2018-D007)


Amends the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to implement section 813(b) of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 (Pub. L. 115-91). Section 813(b) repeals the restrictions on the source of photovoltaic devices in contracts awarded by DoD that result in DoD ownership of photovoltaic devices by means other than DoD purchase of the photovoltaic devices as end products provided in section 858 of the NDAA for FY 2015 (Pub. L. 113-291).

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  212.301; Table of Contents 225, 225.7017; 252.225-7017 and 252.225-7018. PGI changes: 225.7017.

Modification of DFARS Clause "Surge Option" (DFARS Case 2018-D025)


Amends the DFARS to modify the clause at DFARS 252.217-7001, Surge Option, to replace the term "Production Surge Plan (DI-MGMT-80969)" with "Capabilities Analysis Plan (CAP)" and add text to permit the option increase of supplies of services called for under the clause to be expressed as a specific number. The associated clause prescription at DFARS 217.208-70(b) is also being amended to reflect that the option increase of supplies or services may also be expressed as a specific number. The modification of this DFARS clause and prescription supports a recommendation from the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force established pursuant to E.O. 13777, "Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda." DoD published a proposed rule in the Federal Register at 83 FR 30659 on June 29, 2018.

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  217.208-70 and 252.217-7001.

The Federal Register notice for this rule is here.

Documentation for Interagency Contracts (DFARS Case 2018-D073)


Amends the DFARS to implement section 875 of the NDAA for FY 2019 (Pub. L. 115-232). Section 875 amends section 865 of the NDAA for FY 2009 (Pub. L. 110-417) to remove the requirement for agencies, prior to requesting another agency to conduct an acquisition on its behalf, to make a determination that the use of an interagency acquisition represents the best procurement approach. In accordance with section 875, this requirement is being removed from Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) 17.502-1(a) under FAR case 2018-015. This rule removes supplemental text from DFARS 217.502-1 that instructs contracting officers, when providing acquisition assistance to deployed DoD units or personnel from another DoD Component, to obtain the determination from the requiring DoD unit or personnel.

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  217.502-1. PGI changes: 217.502-1.

PROPOSED RULES:


Restrictions on Use of Lowest Priced Technically Acceptable Source Selection Process (DFARS Case 2018-D010)


Proposes to amend the DFARS to implement the limitations and prohibitions on use of the lowest prices technical acceptable (LPTA) source selection process provided in sections 813, 814, and 892 of the NDAA for FY 2017 (Pub. L. 114-328) and sections 822, 832, 882, and 1002 of the NDAA for FY 2018 (Pub. L. 115-91). The various statutes establish the minimum criteria for use of the LPTA source selection process and identifies specific types of acquisitions where use of the LPTA source selection process should be avoided or is prohibited. The rule applies the restrictions in the statutes to DoD contracts, as well as task and delivery orders.

Proposed changes to parts/subparts/sections:  208.405; 212.203; 213.106-1; Table of Contents 215, 215.101-2, 215.101-2-70; 216.505; Table of Contents 217, 217.7X, 217.7XXX; Table of Contents 234, 234.005-2; and 237.270.

Small Business Set-Aside for Architect-Engineer and Construction Design Contracts (DFARS Case 2018-D057)


Proposes to amend the DFARS to implement section 2804 of the NDAA for FY 2019. Section 2804 amends the thresholds at 10 U.S.C. 2855 for small business set-asides of acquisitions for architect-engineer services, including construction design, in connection with military construction projects or military family housing projects. These acquisitions are now required to be set aside for small businesses if valued at less than $1,000,000. This rule proposes to implement section 2804 by removing from DFARS 219.502-1(2) the prohibition on small business set-asides of acquisitions for architect-engineer services for military construction or family housing projects valued at $400,000 or more. In addition, this rule will increase the threshold at DFARS 219.502-2(a)(iii) to $1,000,000.

Proposed changes to parts/subparts/sections:  219.502-1 and 219.502-2.

Small entity compliance guide:


FINAL RULES:


Mentor-Protege Program Modifications (DFARS Case 2017-D016)


Amends the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation (DFARS) to implement section 1823 and paragraph (b) of section 1813 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 (Pub. L. 114-328). Sections 1823 and 1813 provide modifications to the DoD Pilot Mentor-Protégé Program. Section 1823 revises the definition and requirements associated with affiliation between mentor firms and their protégé firms. Both sections add new types of assistance for mentor firms to provide to their protégé firms. One respondent submitted a comment on the proposed rule; no changes were made in the final rule as a result of the comment received.

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  219.7100; I-101.1 through I-101.7, I-102, I-106, I-107, and I-111.

A Microsoft Word format document showing the DFARS changes made by this rule is here.

Repeal of DFARS Clause "Acquisition Streamlining" (DFARS Case 2018-D033)


Amends the DFARS to remove DFARS clause 252.211-7000, Acquisition Streamlining, and the associated clause prescription at DFARS 211.002-70. This clause was added to the DFARS to implement a requirement of DoD Directive 5000.43, Acquisition Streamlining, which has been cancelled and replaced by DoD Instruction 5000.02, Operation of the Defense Acquisition System. In addition, the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) already requires acquisition streamlining and industry engagement as part of acquisition planning; therefore, this clause is no longer necessary. The repeal of this DFARS clause supports a recommendation from the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force established pursuant to E.O. 13777, "Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda."

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  Table of Contents for part 211, 211.002-70; Table of Contents for part 252, and 252.211-7000.

The Federal Register notice for this rule is here.

A Microsoft Word format document showing the DFARS changes made by this rule is here.

Repeal of DFARS Provision "Bonds or Other Security" (DFARS Case 2018-D036)


Amends the DFARS to remove DFARS provision 252.228-7004, Bonds or Other Security, and the associated clause prescription at DFARS 228.170. FAR clause 52.228-16, Performance and Payment Bonds-Other than Construction, and FAR provision 52.228-1, Bid Guarantee, provide the information contained in the DFARS provision; therefore, this provision is duplicative and no longer necessary. The repeal of this DFARS provision supports a recommendation from the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force established pursuant to E.O. 13777, "Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda."

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  Table of contents for part 228, 228.170; Table of Contents for part 252, and 252.228-7004.

The Federal Register notice for this rule is here.

A Microsoft Word format document showing the DFARS changes made by this rule is here.

Repeal of DFARS Clause "Option for Supervision and Inspection Services" (DFARS Case 2018-D041)


Amends the DFARS to remove the DFARS clause 252.236-7009, Option for Supervision and Inspection Services, remove the associated clause prescription at DFARS 236.609-70(a)(1), and revise a cross reference in the introductory text to DFARS clause 252.236-7011. The clause is used in fixed-price solicitations and contracts for architect-engineering services when the architect may also be required to provide supervision and inspection services during construction; however, the need for architect-engineers to perform these services during construction is uncommon and, if necessary, should be included in the contract as an option that accurately describes the scope of services. As such, this DFARS clause is unnecessary and can be removed. The repeal of this DFARS provision supports a recommendation from the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force established pursuant to E.O. 13777, "Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda."

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  Table of Contents for part 236, 236.609-70; Table of Contents for part 252, 252.236-7009, and 252.236-7011.

The Federal Register notice for this rule is here.

Update of Clause on Section 8(a) Direct Award (DFARS Case 2018-D052)


Amends the DFARS to remove an obsolete requirement from the clause at DFARS 252.219-7009, Section 8(a) Direct Award. The clause currently requires 8(a) contractors to obtain written approval from the Small Business Administration and the contracting officer prior to subcontracting the performance of any contract requirements. This requirement no longer exists in SBA's regulations on the 8(a) Business Development Program at 13 CFR part 124. As such, this requirement can be removed. The total estimated annualized value of the cost savings for 8(a) firms and the Government is $832,590.

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  252.219-7009.

The Federal Register notice for this rule is here.

PROPOSED RULES:


Brand Name or Equal (DFARS Case 2017-D040)


Proposes to amend the DFARS to implement section 888(a) of the NDAA for FY 2017 (Pub. L. 114-328). Section 888(a) requires that competition on DoD contracts not be limited through the use of brand name or equivalent descriptions, or proprietary specifications or standards, in solicitations unless a justification for such specification is provided and approved in accordance with 10 U.S.C. 2304(f). The objective of this proposed rule is to ensure that contracting officers execute a justification under the authority of FAR 6.302-1 when including brand name or equal descriptions, or proprietary specifications or standards, in a solicitation.

Proposed changes to parts/subparts/sections:  206.302.1; 211.104, 211.170; and 213.501.

The Federal Register notice for this rule is here.

A Microsoft Word format document showing the DFARS changes proposed by this rule is here.

Amendments Related to General Solicitations (DFARS Case 2018-D021)


Proposes to amend the DFARS to implement sections 221 and 861 of the NDAA for FY 2018 (Pub. L. 115-91). Section 221 amends 10 U.S.C. 2302(2)(B) to allow for an expanded application of other competitive procedures by replacing the words "basic research" with "science and technology."
