SYNOPSIS: On March 18, 2005, a 2005 reissue of the FAR will be available for downloading at http://www.acqnet.gov/far.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The FAR Secretariat, Room 4035, GS Building, Washington, DC, 20405, 202-501-4755.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: Periodically, the FAR is reissued because of administrative necessity -- headers and change bars are removed. A FAR reissue does not revise the FAR language, but the flow of the context changes. Therefore, users are required to refer to this latest version (current through Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) 2001-27). The FAR is available in HTML and PDF formats at http://www.acqnet.gov/far (the FAR Website also provides electronic copies of FACs; Federal Register documents pertaining to final, interim, and proposed rules; and public comments on those rules). Users intending to print the FAR can refer to the downloadable, print-only version in PDF.

EDITOR'S NOTE: For more on the first Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) amending the 2005 version of the FAR (already!), see yesterday's FEDERAL CONTRACTS DISPATCH Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) 2005-01; Miscellaneous Amendments."
