DFARS change notice 20050901.

On Sept. 1, 2005, the Office of the Director of Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy published the following changes to the Defense FAR Supplement (DFARS). Additional information on these changes can be found at <>.

Interim Rules

Training for Contractor Personnel Interacting with Detainees (DFARS Case 2005-D007)

Adds policy addressing requirements for contractor personnel who interact with detainees to receive training regarding the applicable international obligations and laws of the United States. Contractor personnel must receive this training before interacting with detainees and annually thereafter. This policy implements Section 1092 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005.

Levy on Payments to Contractors (DFARS Case 2004-D033)

Adds policy addressing the effect of Internal Revenue Service levies on contract payments. Requires contractors to promptly notify the contracting officer if a levy that will jeopardize contract performance is imposed on a contract. When the contractor's inability to perform will adversely affect national security or will result in significant additional costs to the government, the contracting officer must notify the director, Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy, in accordance with agency procedures.

Final Rules

Restrictions on Totally Enclosed Lifeboat Survival Systems (DFARS Case 2004-D034)

Removes DFARS text addressing restrictions on the acquisition of totally enclosed lifeboats from foreign sources. The restrictions are based on fiscal year 1994 and 1995 appropriations act provisions, that are no longer considered applicable, and other statutory provisions that apply only to the Navy.

Assignment of Contract Administration--Exception for Defense Energy Support Center (DFARS Case 2004-D007)

Changes the assignments of contract administration functions to reflect a memorandum of agreement between the Defense Contract Management Agency and the Defense Energy Support Center. The agreement provides for the Defense Energy Support Center to perform contract administration functions for all contracts it awards. This arrangement eliminates duplication of effort in the bulk fuel quality management program.
