Barry McVay's FEDERAL CONTRACTS DISPATCH

DATE: February 18, 2000

FROM: Barry McVay, CPCM

SUBJECT: Department of Defense; Class Deviation Extension Regarding GSA Utilization Screening for DOD Scrap

SOURCE: Department of Defense Memorandum, dated February 16, 2000

AGENCIES: Department of Defense (DOD)

ACTION: Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Deviation

SYNOPSIS: On February 16, 2000, Acting Director of Defense Procurement Colonel Dave Kerrins, Jr., issued a memorandum to the directors of defense agencies, the services' deputies for acquisition, and the Defense Logistics Agency's executive director for procurement management, to extend, from January 15, 2000, to July 31, 2000, the expiration date of the DOD FAR deviation that requires all military departments and defense agencies to deviate from the requirements in Table 45-1 in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 45.608-1, General, and FAR 45.608-4, Limited Screening, regarding limited screening of scrap items.

EFFECTIVE DATES: This deviation is extended from January 15, 2000, to July 31, 2000.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: On January 15, 1997, the General Services Administration (GSA) amended the Federal Property Management Regulation (FPMR) with the publication of Temporary Regulation H-29, which revised FPMR 101-43.305, Nonreportable Property and Property Not Subject to GSA Screening, to except scrap (except aircraft in scrap condition) from the GSA utilization screening process. Temporary Regulation H-29 was to remain in effect until January 15, 1998. Since then, GSA has extended this temporary regulation until January 15, 1999, then to January 15, 2000, and now until July 31, 2000.

Since Table 45-1 in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 45.608-1, General, and FAR 45.608-4, Limited Screening, require that scrap be made available to GSA for limited screening, the DOD FAR class deviation that directs all military departments and defense agencies not to implement the FAR limited screening requirements is likewise extended until July 31, 2000, except for aircraft in scrap condition.
