Interim Rule

PROHIBITION OF FOREIGN TAXATION ON U.S. ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS (DFARS CASE 2004-D012)

Implements a statutory prohibition on foreign taxation under contracts funded by U.S. assistance programs. Foreign governments receiving U.S. assistance are prohibited from imposing taxes on commodities acquired under contracts funded by such U.S. assistance. The interim rule addresses the responsibilities of the contractor and the contracting officer regarding this prohibition.

Final Rules

EXTENSION OF PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT-8(A) PROGRAM (DFARS CASE 2005-D020)

Reflects the extension of the partnership agreement that permits DoD to award contracts to eligible 8(a) Program participants on behalf of the Small Business Administration. The expiration date of the agreement has been extended to Sept. 30, 2006.

DEFENSE LOGISTICS AGENCY WAIVER AUTHORITY (DFARS CASE 2005-D019)

Authorizes the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Component Acquisition Executive to waive domestic source restrictions on the acquisition of ball and roller bearings, when adequate domestic supplies are not available to meet DoD requirements on a timely basis. The authority provided to DLA is in addition to the authority already provided to the military departments for such waivers.

QUALITY CONTROL OF AVIATION CRITICAL SAFETY ITEMS AND RELATED SERVICES (DFARS CASE 2003-D101)

Finalizes, with changes, the interim rule published in DFARS Change Notice 20040917 to implement statutory requirements for quality control in the procurement, modification, repair, and overhaul of aviation critical safety items. The changes in the final rule clarify that the head of the design control activity is responsible for identifying items that meet the criteria for designation as aviation critical safety items and that the head of the design control activity may delegate authority for acceptance of minor nonconformances in aviation critical safety items.

CENTRAL CONTRACTOR REGISTRATION (DFARS CASE 2003-D040)

Finalizes, with changes, the interim rule published in DFARS Change Notice 20031114 to eliminate policy on central contractor registration that duplicated policy added to the Federal Acquisition Regulation. The changes in the final rule clarify that contracting activities must include the contractor's Commercial and Government Entity code, instead of the DUNS number, on contractual documents transmitted to the payment office.
