Barry McVay's FEDERAL CONTRACTS DISPATCH

DATE: February 17, 2000

FROM: Barry McVay, CPCM

SUBJECT: Department of Defense Test Program for Negotiation of Comprehensive Small Business Subcontracting Plans

SOURCE: Federal Register, February 15, 2000, Vol. 65, No. 31, page 7509

AGENCIES: Department of Defense (DOD)

ACTION: Notice

SYNOPSIS: DOD is amending its Test Program for Negotiation of Comprehensive Small Business Subcontracting Plans to update the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement citation for source selection referenced in the test program under paragraph (C)5. of Part III. Program Requirements. The reference to old DFARS 215.605, Evaluation Factors and Subfactors, is changed to DFARS Subpart 215.3, Source Selection.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The test program was last amended on January 25, 2000, to extend the program for five years, from September 30, 2000, to September 30, 2000. See the January 25, 2000, FEDERAL CONTRACTS DISPATCH "Department of Defense Test Program for Negotiation of Comprehensive Small Business Subcontracting Plans" for more details.

EFFECTIVE DATE: February 15, 2000.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Ivory Fisher, Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization, OUSD (A&T) SADBU, 1777 North Kent Street, Suite 9100, Arlington, VA 22209; 703-588-8616; fax: 703-588-7561.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: On October 14, 1998, DFARS Part 215, Contracting by Negotiation, was completely rewritten and reformatted to conform to the rewritten Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 15. Among the changes made was the movement of DFARS 215.605 to DFARS 215.304, Evaluation Factors and Significant Subfactors.

Paragraph (C)5. of Part III of the Test Program had stated that contractors selected for participation in the test program must "comply with the requirements of Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) Section 215.605 for source selection purposes..." Because the material in old DFARS 215.605 has been relocated, this amendment changes the citation to "...Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) Subpart 215.3..."
