SUBJECT: Interim Policy Letter (IPL) 96-015
9 May 96
EFFECTIVE DATE/IMPLEMENTATION: The AFMCFARS changes
included in this letter are to be incorporated in solicitations
issued on or after the date of this IPL. Incorporate these changes
in solicitations issued prior to the date of this IPL if such
incorporation will not delay award. This Interim Policy Letter
will be superseded by an AFMCAC published at a later date. Ensure
distribution to all Contracting Officers.
1. This IPL implements the following approved case:
a. Deletion of AFMCFARS 5307.103(C)(90), Market
Surveys (Case 96-146). Deletion of this language on market surveys
is necessary as it is inconsistent with recent changes in the
FAR on the subject of market research. (Atch 1)
b. Addition of AFMCFARS 5307.105(b)(5)(91),
Budgeting and Funding (Case 96-146). This subparagraph on full
funding and incremental funding is reworded to clarify the meaning.
Several AP writers and reviewers have complained that this subparagraph
should be reworded to make more sense. (Atch 1)
2. If you have any questions, please call me or have your staff call my action officer, Ms. Chris Shockey,
HQ AFMC/PKPB, DSN 787-6757.
