Panoptic Enterprises' FEDERAL CONTRACTS DISPATCH

DATE: April 26, 2002

SUBJECT: Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS); Withdrawal of Demilitarization Rule

SOURCE: Federal Register, April 26, 2002, Vol. 67, No. 81, page 20714

AGENCIES: Department of Defense (DOD)

ACTION: Withdrawal of Proposed Rule

SYNOPSIS: DOD is withdrawing the proposed rule that would have amended DFARS Part 245, Government Property, to address control of Munitions List items and Strategic List items and demilitarization of excess property under government contracts.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Rick Layser, Defense Acquisition Regulations Council, OUSD(AT&L)DP(DAR), IMD 3D139, 3062 Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-3062; 703-62-0293; fax: 703-602-0350. Cite DFARS Case 92-D024 when referring to this withdrawal.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: On June 5, 1997, DOD published a proposed rule to address control of Munitions List items and Strategic List items and demilitarization of excess property under government contracts. That proposed rule is being withdrawn because DOD 4160.21-M-1, Defense Demilitarization Manual, is being revised to define DOD policy on this subject. After the revised manual is issued, DOD will reevaluate the need for DFARS changes pertaining to demilitarization.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Panoptic Enterprises at 703-451-5953 or by e-mail to Panoptic@FedGovContracts.com.
