SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: Several recent Federal Acquisition Circulars (FACs) and DFARS changes have revised the numbering sequence of the FAR and DFARS, respectively, and titles of various parts, subparts, and sections. To conform the NAPS with these changes, the following changes are made:

In addition, the NAPS 5202.101, Definitions, is revised to reflect the change in the title of "ABM" (Deputy for Acquisition and Business Management, Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Research, Development, and Acquisition)) to "DASN(ACQ)" (Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Acquisition Management). This change is made throughout the NAPS. The new mailing address for DASN(ACQ) is reflected in NAPS 5245.505-14, Reports of Government Property, (1000 Navy Pentagon, Washington, DC 20350-1000).

This change is made throughout the NAPS.

Finally, the definition of "Deputy/Assistant Commander for Contracts" in NAPS 5202.101 is revised to delete "Marine Corps Materiel Command" and to redesignate the Marine Corps Systems Command as a contracting activity.
