DFARS procedures, guidance and information web site available to serve you.
PGI is a companion resource containing mandatory and non-mandatory internal DoD procedures, non-mandatory guidance, and supplemental information used at the discretion of the contracting officer. PGI will not, however, contain policy or procedures that significantly affect the public and will not be published in the Federal Register or the Code of Federal Regulations. However, the HTML version of the DFARS contains links to the corresponding PGI sections.
The authority to issue PGI comes from DoD Directive 5000.35, Defense Acquisition Regulations Management and DFARS 201.301.
As designed, DFARS PGI represents a new, Web-based tool for the entire acquisition community to simply and rapidly access non-regulatory Department of Defense (DoD) procedures, guidance, and information relevant to FAR and DFARS topics.
The DFARS remains the source for regulation, implementation of laws as well as DoD-wide contracting policies, authorities, and delegations. In other words, DFARS will answer the questions, "What is the policy?" and "What are the rules?" DFARS PGI will connect the acquisition community to the available background, procedures, and guidance and answer the questions, "How can I execute the policy?" and "Why does this policy exist?"
DFARS PGI will not only provide a rapid method of disseminating non-regulatory material to contracting officers and the entire acquisition community, but it will also serve as a real-time training tool by making relevant information available on your topic of interest. DFARS PGI is new and will be evolving in the months ahead. Web site developers are moving to simpler language, an easy-to-follow format, and new tools for searching and retrieving current and past information on FAR and DFARS requirements.
