DFARS change notice 20050913.

On Sept, 13, 2005, the Office of the Director of Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy published the following change to the Defense FAR Supplement (DFARS). Additional information on this change can be found at <http://www.acq.osd.mil/dpap/dars/dfars/changenotice/index.htm>.

Final Rule

Radio Frequency Identification (DFARS Case 2004-D011)

Adds policy and a contract clause requiring contractors to affix passive radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, at the case and palletized unit load levels, when shipping certain items to certain DoD locations. Also requires contractors to electronically submit advance shipment notices to DoD, to permit association of the RFID tag data with the corresponding shipment. These requirements apply to contracts for packaged operational rations, clothing, individual equipment, tools, personal demand items, and weapon system repair parts, that will be shipped to the Defense Distribution Depot in Susquehanna, Pa., or the Defense Distribution Depot in San Joaquin, Calif. Use of RFID technology will improve the visibility of DoD assets, increase the accuracy of shipment and receipt data, and permit more efficient movement of supplies within the DoD supply chain. This DFARS change will become effective on Nov. 14, 2005, and will be incorporated into the DFARS on that date.
