SUBJECT: Class Deviation--General Services Administration (GSA) Utilization Screening for Department of Defense (DOD) Property; Standard Screening Periods
By memorandum dated March 1, 1999, all DOD contracting activities were directed to deviate from the requirements of Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 45.608-1(b), 45.608-2(b)(2), and 45.608-2(b)(3) when conducting standard Screening of contractor inventory.
In August 1995, GSA agreed to reduce the time for GSA standard screening from 60 to 36 days. Therefore, the screening periods in FAR 45.608-2(b)(2) and (3) are revised to read "31st through 51st day" and "52nd through 66th day", respectively.
This extension of the class deviation is effective until the FAR is revised.
