Defense FAR Supplement (DFARS) Change Notice 20050505.
Contractor Personnel Supporting a Force Deployed Outside the United States (DFARS Case 2003-D087)
Adds policy to address situations that require contractor personnel to deploy with, or otherwise provide support in the theater of operations to, U.S. military forces deployed outside the United States in contingency operations, humanitarian or peacekeeping operations, or other military operations or exercises designated by the combatant commander. The DFARS changes enable contracting officers to consistently address the issues associated with these operations through use of a standard contract clause. These changes will become effective on June 6, 2005, and will be incorporated into the DFARS companion resource, Procedures, Guidance, and Information (PGI) on that date.
Proposed Rules--DFARS Transformation
Authorization for Continued Contracts (DFARS Case 2003-D052)
Proposed change permits contracting activities to assign an additional identification number to an existing contract, by issuing a separate "continued" contract, when continued performance under the existing contract number is not practical for administrative reasons. The continued contract would incorporate all prices, terms, and conditions of the predecessor contract. Use of this procedure is expected to be limited but will help to simplify administration, payment, and closeout of lengthy, complex contracts; and will help in situations where a contracting activity has exhausted its assigned series of identification numbers for orders placed against another activity's contract.
Contract Financing (DFARS Case 2003-D043)
Proposed change clarifies requirements for establishing due dates for contract financing payments; deletes text that is unnecessary or duplicative of FAR/DFARS policy on financial consultation matters, contract payment instructions, and use of the governmentwide commercial purchase card; and relocates to PGI, text on department/agency contract financing offices, approvals for advance payments or unusual progress payments, debt collection procedures, and bankruptcy reporting.
