SUBJECT: National Aeronautics and Space Administration Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Supplement (NFS); Elimination of "Elements" as a Category in Proposal Evaluations

SOURCE: Federal Register, May 10, 2000, Vol. 65, No. 91, page 30012

AGENCIES: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

ACTION: Final Rule

SYNOPSIS: NASA is amending the NFS to eliminate the term "elements" as a category in proposal evaluations because NASA does not numerically weight and score "elements" anymore, so "elements" have ceased to have significance in the evaluation and award of NASA's contracts.

EFFECTIVE DATE: May 10, 2000.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: On December 16, 1999, NASA published a proposal to remove "elements" as a category in its proposal evaluations because it evaluates "factors" and "subfactors" instead. NASA received no comments on the proposed rule, so it is finalizing the rule without change.

The following are the NFS sections in which the term "elements" is removed:
