FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
Mrs. Susan Buckmaster, OUSD(A&T)DP(DAR), IMD 3D139, 3062 Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 203013062. Telephone (703) 6020131. Telefax (703) 6020350.
This Defense Acquisition Circular (DAC) 9110 includes 17 rules and miscellaneous editorial amendments. Three of the rules in the DAC (Items VII, X, and XVII) were published previously in the Federal Register (61 FR 130, January 3, 1996; 61 FR 3600, February 1, 1996; and February 26, 1996; respectively) and thus are not included aspart of this rulemaking notice. These three rules are being published in the DAC to conform the looseleaf edition of DFARS to the previously published revisions.
B. Regulatory Flexibility Act
DAC 9110, Items IV, XII, XIII, XIV, XV, and XVI
The Regulatory Flexibility Act does not apply because these rules are not significant revisions within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq. However, comments from small
entities will be considered in accordance with Section 610 of the Act. Please cite the applicable DFARS case number in correspondence.
DAC 9110, Items I, III, V, VIII, IX, and XI
DoD certifies that these rules will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act because:
Item IThe rule primarily (1) pertains to internal Government considerations regarding use of warranties; and (2) consolidates and standardizes existing regulatory requirements pertaining to undefinitized contract actions.
Item IIIContracts awarded to small entities normally are not subject to program or overhead shouldcost reviews.
Item VThe rule merely provides a standard method of implementing security requirements which already exist under DoD 5100.76M.
Item VIIIThe rule retains the policy of acquiring tank and automotive forging items from domestic sources to the maximum extent practicable. The new exception only applies to forging items purchased
as tank and automotive spare parts, when the end use of the spare parts is unknown.
Item IXThe rule merely clarifies the scope of offset administrative costs that contractors may recover under foreign military sales contracts. Also, most companies involved in offset arrangements are not small
Item XIThe reduction in the customary progress payment rate only applies to large businesses. While the rule also precludes the use of flexible progress payments for contracts resulting from solicitations
issued on or after November 30, 1993, this change is not expected to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities, because the customary progress payment rates for small and
small disadvantaged businesses generally are more favorable than a flexible progress payment rate with its associated terms and conditions.
DAC 9110, Items II and VI
The Regulatory Flexibility Act applies. A final regulatory analysis has been performed and is available by writing the Defense Acquisition Regulations Council, OUSD(A&T)DP(DAR), 3062 Defense Pentagon,
Washington, DC 203013062
C. Paperwork Reduction Act
DAC 9110, Items I, II, III, IV, VI, VIII, IX, XI, XII, XIII, XIV, XV,
The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because these rules do not impose any information collection requirements which require the approval of OMB under 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.
DAC 9110, Item V
The Paperwork Reduction Act applies. OMB has approved the information collection requirement under OMB Control Number 07040385.Michele P. Peterson, Executive Editor, Defense Acquisition Regulations Council. Defense Acquisition Circular (DAC) 9110 amends the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 1991 edition. The amendments are summarized as follows:
Item IContract Award (DFARS Case 95D702)
This final rule (1) amends DFARS Parts 216 and 217 to implement Section 1505 of Pub. L. 103355 and to clarify guidance on undefinitized contract actions (UCAs); (2) amends the guidance on warranties at 246.770 to implement Section 2402 of Pub. L. 103355; and (3) adds a new clause on definitization of UCAs at 252.2177027. The new clause is similar to, and will be used instead of, the clause as FAR 52.21625, Contract Definitization, which was designed for use in letter contracts only.
Item IIInstitutions of Higher Education (DFARS Case 94D310)
The interim rule published as Item IX of DAC 919 is revised and finalized. The rule implements Section 558 of the Fiscal Year 1995 Defense Authorization Act (Pub. L. 103337). Section 558 provides that no funds available to DoD may be provided by grant or contract to any institution of higher education that has a policy of denying, or which effectively prevents the Secretary of Defense from obtaining for
military recruiting purposes, entry to campuses, access to students on campuses, or access to directory information pertaining to students. The final rule differs from the interim rule in that it makes
clarifying revisions at 209.4701 and 252.2097005, and adds language at 209.4701 to state that, when specific subordinate elements of an institution of higher education, rather than the institution as a
whole, have a prohibited policy or practice, the prohibition on use of DoD funds applies only to those subordinate elements.
Item IIIOverhead Should Cost Reviews (DFARS Case 92D010
This final rule revises DFARS 215.810 to specify when DoD activities should consider performing an overhead should cost review of a contractor business unit. This DFARS rule supplements the FAR rule
published as Item VIII of Federal Acquisition Circular 9037 on January 26, 1996. Both the FAR and the DFARS rules become effective on March 26, 1996.
Item IVCostPlusFixedFee Contracts for Military Construction (DFARS Case 95D024)
This final rule adds new sections at DFARS 216.306 and 232.70370 and revises 236.271 to expand guidance on statutory restrictions pertaining to the use of costplusfixedfee contracts for military
Item VSafeguarding Sensitive Conventional Arms, Ammunition, and Explosives (DFARS Case 95D001)
This final rule adds a new subpart at DFARS 223.72 and a new contract clause at 252.2237007 to provide guidance on physical security requirements for contracts involving sensitive conventional
arms, ammunition, and explosives. Section 204.202 is amended to specify additional requirements for distribution of contracts containing the clause at 252.2237007.
Item VIApplicability of Trade Agreements (DFARS Case 95D022)
This final rule amends DFARS 225.402 to provide that the value of an acquisition for purposes of determining the applicability of both the North American Free Trade Agreement Act and the Trade Agreements Act is the total value of all end products subject to the acts.
Item VIIUruguay Round (1996 Agreement) (DFARS Case 95D306)
This final rule was issued by Departmental Letter 95019, effective January 1, 1996. The rule amends DFARS 225.402 and the clause at 252.2257007 to implement the DoDunique requirements of the
renegotiated General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) Government Procurement Agreement (1996 Code) (Uruguay Round), which became effective January 1, 1996. This agreement is implemented in statute by the Uruguay Round Agreement Act, Pub. L. 103465, which amends the Trade Agreements Act of 1979.
Item VIIITank and Automotive Forging Items (DFARS Case 95D003)
This final rule amends DFARS Subpart 225.71 to add an exception to the foreign source restrictions on the acquisition of forgings. The rule excludes forging purchases as tank and automotive spare parts from
foreign source restrictions, except when it is known that the parts are for use in tanks only.
Item IXOffset Implementation Costs (DFARS Case 95D019)
This final rule amends DFARS 225.73032 to clarify that, under a foreign military sales contract, a contractor may recover costs incurred to implement its offset agreement with a foreign government or
international organization, if the foreign military sale Letter of Offer and Acceptance is financed wholly with customer cash or repayable foreign military finance credits.
Item XAlternatives to Miller Act Bonds (DFARS Case 95D305)
This interim rule was issued by Departmental Letter 96001, effective February 1, 1996. The rule revises the interim rule which was published as Item XXIII of DAC 919 to provide alternative payment
protections for construction contracts between $25,000 and $100,000, pending implementation of Section 4104(b)(2) of the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act of 1994 (Pub. L. 103355) in the FAR. This interim
rule amends the guidance at DFARS 228.171 to require the contracting officer to specify two or more
alternative payment protections when using the clause at 252.2287007, and to give particular consideration to use of an irrevocable letter of credit as one of the specified alternatives. This rule also amends the clause at 252.2287007 to exclude payment bonds from the payment protections under which the contracting officer may access funds.
Item XIReduction in Progress Payment Rates (DFARS Case 93D305)
The interim rule published as Item XXVII of DAC 916 is revised and finalized. The rule implements Section 8155 of the Fiscal Year 1994 Defense Appropriations Act (Pub. L. 103139). Section 8155 requires DoD to reduce the customary progress payment rate for large business concerns from 85 percent to 75 percent for contracts resulting from solicitations issued on or after November 11, 1993. The final rule
differs from the interim rule in that it makes an editorial change in the table at 232.502171, and amends the clause at 252.2327004 to state that the 75 percent customary progress payment rate for large business concerns also applies to progress payments made under undefinitized contract actions.
Item XIIStreamlined Research and Development (R&D) Update (DFARS Case 95D036)
This final rule amends DFARS Subpart 235.70 to update administrative information pertaining to the streamlined R&D contracting test program, and to revise the list of clauses in the streamlined R&D contracting format to conform to FAR and DFARS revisions which occurred since initiation of the test program.
Item XIIIPerformance Evaluations for Construction and ArchitectEngineer Contracts (DFARS Case 95D034)
This final rule amends DFARS 236.201 and 236.604 to prescribe use of DD Forms 2626 and 2631 in lieu of Standard Forms 1420 and 1421, respectively. The forms are used to document contractor performance under construction and architectengineer contracts. Copies of DD Forms 2626 and 2631 are added to Subpart 253.3.
Item XIVMagnitude of Construction Projects (DFARS Case 95D031)
This final rule adds a new section at DFARS 236.204 to provide additional price ranges for identifying the magnitude of construction projects in advance notices and solicitations. Item XVFlexible Contract Administration Services (DFARS Case 95D030) This final rule amends DFARS 242.203 to expand the conditions under which the Defense Contract Management Command may perform contract
administration services on a military installation.
Item XVIMilitary Assistance Program Address (MAPAD) Codes (DFARS Case 95D032)
This final rule amends DFARS 253./21370 to clarify instructions for inclusion of foreign military sale shipment information in Block 14 of DD Form 1155.
Item XVIIAllow ability of Costs (DFARS Case 95D309)
This interim rule was issued by Departmental Letter 96002, effective February 26, 1996. The rule adds language at DFARS 231.2056 to implement Section 8122 of the Fiscal Year 1996 Defense Appropriations Act (Pub. L. 10461). Section 8122 prohibits DoD from using fiscal year 1996 funds to reimburse a contractor for costs paid by the contractor to an employee for a bonus or other payment in excess of the normal salary paid to the employee, when such payment is part of restructuring costs associated with a business combination.
Item XVIIISmall Disadvantaged Business Utilization Program (Information Item)
On October 23, 1995, the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Technology suspended those sections of the DFARS which prescribe setaside of acquisitions for small disadvantaged businesses. This
suspension takes account of the Supreme Court's decision in Adarand Constructors, Inc. v. Pena, 63 U.S.L.W. 4523 (U.S. June 12, 1995), while an interagency Governmentwide review of affirmative action
programs is conducted. The suspended DFARS sections are 219.501(S70), 219.502270, 219.5024, 219.504(b)(I), 219.506, 219.508(e), 219.50870, and 252.2197002. Although these sections, and references thereto, still appear in the DFARS text, use of these sections is suspended until further notice.
Item XIXEditorial Revisions
(a) DFARS 202.101 and Appendix G are amended to update activity names and addresses.
(b) DFARS Part 213 is amended to update statutory references and to conform to revisions to FAR Part 13 published in Federal Acquisition Circular 9029.
(c) DFARS 228.1064, 228.106470, 228.1066, and 252.2287006 are deleted. The guidance in these sections has been superseded by the guidance in FAR 28.1064(b), 28.1066(d), and 52.22812, published in Federal Acquisition Circular 9032.
(d) DFARS Part 253 is amended to update DD Forms 375, 375c, 428, 1659, 2222, 22222, and 2604. (This amendment is being made only in the looseleaf edition of the DFARS.)

(a) * * *
(b) Contracting officers and program managers shall consider the following when developing and negotiating weapon system warranty provisions:
(1) Warranties may not be appropriate in all situations, and a waiver should be sought if a warranty would not be costeffective or would otherwise be inconsistent with the national defense. In drafting
warranty provisions, the drafters must ensure they understand the planned operational, maintenance, and supply concepts of the weapon system to be fielded, and must structure a warranty that matches those
concepts. A warranty plan should be prepared in consonance with development of the warranty provision early in the weapon system's life cycle. The plan should contain program warranty strategy, terms of the
warranty, administration and enforcement requirements, and should be coordinated with the user and support activities.
(2) A cost/benefit analysis must be accomplished in support of each warranty (see 246.7707). The cost/benefit analysis compares all costs associated with the warranty to the expected benefits. An estimate shall be made of the likelihood of defects and the estimated cost of correcting such defects. Also, if substantive changes are required to the planned operational, maintenance, or supply concepts, any increased costs should be weighed against the expected benefits in deciding whether a warranty is costeffective.
(3) The Warranty Guidebook prepared by the Defense Systems Management College, Fort Belvoir, VA 220605426, is a valuable reference that can assist in the development, negotiation, and
administration of an effective weapon system warranty. (c) Contracting officers may require warranties that provide greater coverage and remedies than specified in paragraph (a) of this subsection.

Technology). Submit defense agency waiver requests to the Director, Defense Procurement, for processing. The waiving authority for the military departments is the Secretary of the department with authority to redelegate no lower than an Assistant Secretary. The waiving authority may waive one or more of the weapon system warranties required by 246.7702 if
