SUBJECT: Defense FAR Supplement (DFARS); Foreign Acquisition
SOURCE: Federal Register, April 13, 2000, Vol. 65, No. 72, page 19849
AGENCIES: Department of Defense (DOD)
ACTION: Final Rule
SYNOPSIS: DOD is amending Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) Part 225, Foreign Acquisition, to bring it into conformance with the rewritten FAR Part 25, which was published in Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) 97-15 on December 27, 1999.
EFFECTIVE DATE: April 13, 2000.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Amy Williams, Defense Acquisition Regulations Council, PDUSD (AT&L) DP (DAR), IMD 3D139, 3062 Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-3062, 703-602-0288; fax: 703-602-0350.
SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: FAC 97-15 contained a completely revised FAR Part 25, which was rewritten and reorganized to simply and clarify the coverage. FAR 1.303, Publication and Codification, states that "coverage in an agency acquisition regulation that implements a specific part, subpart, section, or subsection of the FAR shall be numbered and titled to correspond to the appropriate FAR number and title." Therefore, DFARS Part 225 needed to be revised to conform with the reorganized FAR Part 25. (EDITOR'S NOTE: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has already revised NASA FAR Supplement (NFS) Part 1825 as required by FAR
The following are the subparts of the reorganized DFARS Part 225:
Introduction (consisting of DFARS 225.001, General, and DFARS 225.003, Definitions)
*These subparts are unique to DOD and have no corresponding subparts in the FAR. These are not revised by this final rule.
The following list summarizes the reorganization of the DFARS text:

The rule makes no substantive changes to DFARS policy pertaining to foreign acquisition. Most of the changes that have been made by this final rule are to cross-references within DFARS Part 225 and between DFARS Part 225 and the corresponding provisions and clauses in DFARS 252.225.
