INTERIM POLICY NOTICE

97-04

10 SEP 97

EFFECTIVE DATE/IMPLEMENTATION: 28 Aug 97

1. This notice implements changes to AFMCFARS 5315.611, Best and final offers. These changes are required because SAF/AQC Contracting Policy Memo 97-C-10 dated 8 Jul 97, "Class Deviation to DFARS 215.611(c)(i)(A), Best and Final Offers (BAFOs)," permits delegation of authority to approve second and subsequent BAFOs (for Other Contracting competitive negotiated acquisitions using formal source selection procedures) to AFMC Center Commanders. This authority is not redelegable.

2. This IPN is effective until the policy is superseded by a future AFMCAC.

3 Refer questions to Ms. Amy Smith, HQ AFMC/PKPA, at DSN 986-0365.
