SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On February 11, 2003, DOD announced plans for conducting a "major transformation" of the DFARS (see the February 11, 2003, FEDERAL CONTRACTS DISPATCH "Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) Transformation"). The objective of the DFARS transformation is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the acquisition process while allowing the acquisition workforce the flexibility to innovate. The transformed DFARS will contain only requirements of law, DOD-wide policies, delegations of FAR authorities, deviations from Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) requirements, and policies and procedures that have a significant effect beyond the internal operating procedures of DOD or a significant cost or administrative impact on contractors or offerors. All mandatory and non-mandatory internal DOD procedures, non-mandatory guidance, and supplemental information will be contained in the DFARS companion document, the "Procedures, Guidance, and Information" (PGI) (for more on the PGI, see the February 23, 2004, FEDERAL CONTRACTS DISPATCH "Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS); Procedures, Guidance, and Information").

The following are the changes that are being proposed to DFARS Subpart 236.6:
