PROPOSED RULES:


Maximizing the Use of American-Made Goods (DFARS Case 2019-D045)


DoD is proposing to amend the DFARS to implement section 2(a)(i) of Executive Order (E.O.) 13881, Maximizing Use of American-Made Goods, Products, and Materials. E.O. 12881 changes the percentages used to determine whether a product is domestic or foreign under the Buy American statute (41 U.S.C. chapter 83). E.O. 13881 calls for more aggressive implementation of the Buy American statute to maximize the Government’s procurement of American-made goods, products, and materials. Revisions to the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to implement E.O. 13881 have been accomplished under FAR Case 2019-016, published in the Federal Register on January 19, 2021 (86 FR 6180). This rule proposes revisions to DFARS part 225 and the associated clauses to implement the DoD-unique requirements and conforming changes associated with implementation of E.O. 13881.

Proposed changes to parts/subparts/sections:  225.003, 225.101, 225.502; 252.225-7001, 252.225-7036, 252.225-7044, and 252.225-7045.

Requiring Data Other than Certified Cost or Pricing Data (DFARS Case 2020-D008)


DoD is proposing to amend the DFARS to implement section 803 of the NDAA for FY 2020 (Pub. L. 116-92). Section 803 amends 10 U.S.C. 2306a(d) to prohibit contracting officers from determining that the price of a contract or subcontract is fair and reasonable based solely on historical prices paid by the Government. Section 803 also provides that when an offeror fails to make a good faith effort to comply with a reasonable request to submit data, the offeror is ineligible for award if the contracting officer is unable to determine proposed prices are fair and reasonable by any other means unless the head of the contracting activity determines that it is in the best interest of the Government to make the award to that offeror.

Proposed changes to parts/subparts/sections:  215.403-3, 215.404-1; and 242.1502.

Contract Closeout Authority for DoD Services Contracts (DFARS Case 2021-D012)


DoD is proposing to amend DFARS subpart 204.8 to implement section 820 of the NDAA for FY 2021 (Pub. L. 116-283). Section 820 amends section 836 of the NDAA for FY 2017, as modified by section 824 of the NDAA for FY 2018. Section 836 authorizes DoD contracting officers to close out certain physically complete contracts or groups of contracts through modification of such contracts, without completing the requirements of FAR 4.804-5(a)(3) through (15) based upon the age of the contract action. DoD published a final rule at 84 FR 18153 on April 30, 2019, to implement sections 836 and 824, which apply to contracts meeting certain criteria that were entered into on a date that was at least 17 fiscal years prior to the current fiscal year. Section 820 expands the application of the expedited contract closeout authority of section 836, implemented at DFARS 204.804(3)(i)(A), to certain contracts or groups of contracts that were awarded at least 7 to 10 fiscal years before the current fiscal year and have completed performance or delivery at least 4 years prior to the current fiscal year.

Proposed changes to parts/subparts/sections:  204.804.

FINAL RULES:


Expediting Contract Closeout (DFARS Case 2017-D042)


DoD is issuing a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to permit expedited contract closeout through a waiver by the contractor and Government of entitlement to any residual dollar amounts that are due to either party at the time of contract closeout. The rule adds a new contract clause to be used when the contracting officer intends to expedite the contract closeout process by having the contractor and the Government waive entitlement to a residual dollar amount up to $1,000 at the time of contract closeout. As a result of the public comments, the final rule clarifies the Government’s intent regarding the determination of a residual amount.

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  TOC 204, 204.804, and 204.804-70; 212.301; TOC 252 and 252.204-7022.

Authorities for Minimizing the Use of Materials Containing Hexavalent Chromium (DFARS Case 2020-D031)


DoD is issuing a final rule amending the DFARS to remove references to Executive Order (E.O.) 13423, Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management, and E.O. 13514, Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance, as the authorities for the policy at DFARS subpart 223.73, Minimizing the Use of Materials Containing Hexavalent Chromium. Both E.O. 13423 and E.O. 13514 were revoked by E.O. 13693, Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade, which was later revoked by E.O. 13834, Efficient Federal Operations (83 FR 23771, May 22, 2018). E.O. 13990, Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis, partially revoked E.O. 13834, resulting in no impact to this final rule. The removal of these references will not impact DoD’s policies and procedures for minimizing the use of hexavalent chromium, a known carcinogen, still used in some DoD weapon systems and platforms due to its corrosion protection properties. DoD will continue to implement the requirements for minimizing the use of materials containing hexavalent chromium in items acquired by DoD; therefore, there is no impact to contracting officers or contractors as a result of this rule.

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  TOC 223, 223.7301, and 223.7302.

PROPOSED RULES:


Postaward Debriefings (DFARS Case 2018-D009)


DoD is proposing to amend the DFARS to implement section 818 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 (Pub. L. 115-91), which provides enhanced postaward debriefing rights under negotiated contracts and task or delivery orders. Section 818 amends 10 U.S.C. 2305(b), enhancing debriefing rights for negotiated contracts and task or delivery orders that exceed $10 million and providing offerors the opportunity to submit follow-up questions upon receiving a postaward debriefing related to the debriefing and to receive agency responses. Section 818 also amends 31 U.S.C. 3553(d), extending the timeframe during which the contracting officer shall immediately suspend contract performance or terminate the awarded contract when a protest is filed with the Government Accountability Office.

Proposed changes to parts/subparts/sections:  212.301; TOC 215, 215.506 and 215.570; 216.505 and 216.506; TOC 233, 233.102, 233.104, and 233.171; TOC 252, 252.215-70XX and 252.216-70YY.

Past Performance of Subcontractors and Joint Venture Partners (DFARS Case 2018-D055)


DoD is proposing to amend the DFARS to implement section 823 of the NDAA for FY 2019 (Pub. L. 115-232). Section 823 requires performance evaluations in accordance with specified conditions for individual partners of joint ventures for construction and architect-engineer services contracts with an estimated value in accordance with the threshold in FAR 42.1502(e), currently $750,000. Section 823 also requires performance evaluations for first-tier subcontractors performing a portion of a construction or architect-engineer services contract exceeding the threshold in FAR 42.1502(e) or 20 percent of the value of the prime contract, whichever is higher. The rule creates a new solicitation provision that requires offerors to identify the individual partners of a joint venture. The rule also creates two new contract clauses to communicate the requirements related to performance evaluations for joint venture partners and for first-tier subcontractors. The solicitation provision and contract clauses are for use in solicitations and contracts for construction or architect-engineer services.

Proposed changes to parts/subparts/sections:  215.305; TOC 236, 236.201, 236.570, 236.604, and 236.609-70; TOC 242, 242.1501, 242.1501-70, 242.1502, and 242.1504-70; TOC 252, 252.242-70XX, 252.242-70YY, and 252.242-70ZZ.

Small entity compliance guide:


FINAL RULES:

Covered Defense Telecommunications Equipment or Services (DFARS Case 2018-D022)


DoD is adopting as final, with changes, an interim rule that amended the DFARS to implement section 1656 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 (Pub. L. 115-91) and to implement the DoD-specific prohibitions in section 889(a)(1)(A) of the NDAA for FY 2019. Section 1656 provided that DoD may not procure or obtain, or extend or renew a contract to procure or obtain, any equipment, system, or service to carry out the DoD nuclear deterrence or homeland defense missions that uses covered defense telecommunications equipment or services as a substantial or essential component of any system or as a critical technology as a part of any system. This rule also provides agency procedures associated with the implementation of section 889(a)(1)(A) of the NDAA for FY 2019 (Pub. L. 115-232) in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), which provides a similar Governmentwide prohibition. As a result of public comments, this final rule extends the timeframes in which contractors must report information related to the discovery of covered defense telecommunications equipment or services.

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  252.204-7018.

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 “Tariff Information” (DFARS Case 2018-D044)


Amends the DFARS to remove DFARS clause 252.239-7006, Tariff Information, which is no longer required. This clause was initially added to the DFARS to implement a standardized approach across DoD for addressing critical issues associated with the acquisition of telecommunication services. Since its implementation, technological advances, and the passage of additional telecommunication regulations at 47 CFR 42.10, have made this clause unnecessary. This rule implements a recommendation by the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force under Executive Order (E.O.) 13777, Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda.

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  239.7411; TOC 252, and 252.239-7006.

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

Property Loss Reporting in the Procurement Integrated Enterprise Environment (DFARS Case 2020‐D005)


Amends the DFARS to replace a legacy software application used for reporting loss of Government property with new capabilities developed within the DoD enterprise‐wide, eBusiness platform, Procurement Integrated Enterprise Environment (PIEE). DoD developed the Government‐Furnished Property module within the PIEE to address limitations of the legacy software application and to provide DoD with end‐to‐end accountability for all Government‐furnished property transactions within a secure, single, integrated system. The replacement of the legacy software application may reduce compliance requirements over time for contractors, including small businesses, due to the technological advances in the PIEE.

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  245.102; 252.245-7002. PGI 245.103-71 and 245.103-72.

PROPOSED RULE:


Improved Energy Security for Main Operating Bases in Europe (DFARS Case 2020-D030)


DoD is proposing to amend the DFARS to implement section 2821 of the NDAA for FY 2020 (Pub. L. 116-92). Section 2821 prohibits contracts for the acquisition of furnished energy, for a covered military installation in Europe, that is sourced from inside the Russian Federation. The rule creates a new solicitation provision in which an offeror represents, by submission of its offer, that the offeror will not use or supply energy sourced in the Russian Federation in performance of a contract resulting from the solicitation. The rule also creates a contract clause that prohibits a contractor from using, in performance of the contract, any energy sourced from inside the Russian Federation unless a waiver is approved. Notice of a waiver must be submitted to the congressional defense committees prior to award of any energy contract for which a waiver is granted.

Proposed changes to parts/subparts/sections:  212.301; 225.70XX, and 225.70XX-1 through 225.70XX-4; 252.225-70XX and 252.225-70YY. PGI 225.70XX-3.

INTERIM RULE:


Assessing Contractor Compliance with Cybersecurity Requirements (DFARS Case 2019-D041)


On September 29, 2020, DoD published interim major rule 2019-D041 in the Federal Register (85 FR 61505) amending the DFARS, effective 60 days after the date of publication (November 30, 2020), to implement the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-171 DoD Assessment Methodology and the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) framework. The objective of the rule is to provide the Department with: (1) the ability to assess at a corporate-level a contractor’s implementation of NIST SP 800-171 security requirements; and (2) assurances that a Defense Industrial Base contractor can adequately protect sensitive unclassified information at a level commensurate with the risk, accounting for information flow down to its subcontractors in a multi-tier supply chain.

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  TOC 204, 204.7302, 204.7303, 204.7304; 204.75, 204.7500, 204.7501, 204.7502, 204.7503; 212.301; 217.207; TOC 252, 252.204-7019, 252.204-7020, and 252.204-7021.

FINAL RULES:


Repeal of DFARS Provision and Clause on Reserve Officer Training Corps and Military Recruiting on Campus (DFARS Case 2020-D002)


Amends the DFARS to remove DFARS provision 252.209-7003, Reserve Officer Training Corps and Military Recruiting on Campus-Representation, and DFARS clause 252.209-7005, Reserve Officer Training Corps and Military Recruiting on Campus, which implemented 10 U.S.C. 983(d)(1). Since the statute applies to several Federal agencies, a FAR clause has been implemented to create a single standard for all agencies that are subject to the statute. A final rule (85 FR 67619) issued under FAR case 2018-021 amended the FAR to implement the requirements of 10 U.S.C. 983 for all affected Federal agencies. This rule implements a recommendation from the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force.

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  204.1202; TOC 209, 209.470, 209.470-1 through 209.470-4; TOC 252, 252.204-7007, 252.209-7003, and 252.209-7005.

Repeal of DFARS Clauses Related to Taxes Applied to Foreign Contracts in Afghanistan (DFARS Case 2020-D025)


Amends the DFARS to remove DFARS clauses 252.229-7014, Taxes–Foreign Contracts in Afghanistan, and 252.229-7015, Taxes-Foreign Contracts in Afghanistan (North Atlantic Treaty Organization Status of Forces Agreement). Since several Federal agencies award contracts that are subject to the terms of the Agreement or SOFA, a final rule issued under FAR case 2018-023 (85 FR 67623) implemented two new clauses in the FAR that notify applicable contractors of the same information included in DFARS clauses. As the text of the DFARS clauses have been implemented in the FAR, the DFARS clauses are no longer necessary and can be removed from the DFARS. This rule implements a recommendation from the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force.

Affected parts/subparts/sections:  212.301; 229.402-70; TOC 252, and 252.229-7014 and 252.229-7015.

PROPOSED RULES:


Authorities for Minimizing the Use of Materials Containing Hexavalent Chromium (DFARS Case 2020-D031)


DoD is proposing to amend the DFARS to remove references to Executive Order (E.O.) 13423, Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management, and E.O. 13514, Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance, as the authorities for the policy at DFARS subpart 223.73, Minimizing the Use of Materials Containing Hexavalent Chromium. Both E.O. 13423 and E.O. 13514 were revoked by E.O. 13693, Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade, which was later revoked by E.O. 13834, Efficient Federal Operations (83 FR 23771, May 22, 2018). However, the removal of these references will not impact DoD’s policies and procedures for minimizing the use of hexavalent chromium.

Proposed changes to parts/subparts/sections:  223.7301 and 223.7302.

Commercial Item Determinations (DFARS Case 2020-D033)


DoD is proposing to amend the DFARS by publishing a second proposed rule under DFARS Case 2020-D033 to further implement section 848 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 (Pub. L. 115-91), because of substantial changes from the first proposed rule. Section 848 modifies 10 U.S.C. 2380(b) to provide that a contract for an item using FAR part 12 procedures shall serve as a prior commercial item determination, unless the appropriate official determines in writing that the use of such procedures was improper or that it is no longer appropriate to acquire the item using commercial item acquisition procedures. This rule also proposes to remove the procedures at DFARS subpart 212.70, established pursuant to section 856 of the NDAA for FY 2016 (Pub. L. 114-92), which apply to procurements of more than $1 million previously procured under a prime contract using FAR part 12 procedures. The authority for these procedures expires on November 25, 2020.

Proposed changes to parts/subparts/sections:  TOC 212, 212.102 and 212.70, 212.7000 and 212.7001.
