[ Revised October 3, 2017 ]
This 2013 edition is a complete reissuance of the Air Force Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (AFFARS). It includes all changes published in Air Force Acquisition Circulars (AFAC) through 2017-1003.
Additional information, guidance, templates, and samples pertaining to various parts of the AFFARS are available in the AFFARS Library.
The AFFARS is required for use by all Air Force contracting units in their acquisition of supplies and services with appropriated funds.
The AFFARS implements and supplements the FAR and Defense FAR Supplement (DFARS) as necessary, but does not unnecessarily repeat, paraphrase, or otherwise restate the FAR or DFARS.
There are requirements to obtain approvals from and provide notifications to the Deputy Assistant Secretary (Contracting), SAF/AQC, or higher throughout the AFFARS. In these circumstances, unless otherwise stated, send all requests or notifications and associated documentation to SAF/AQC Workflow for disposition by SAF/AQCK or SAF/AQCA, as appropriate. Advance notice of pending actions and submission of draft requests/documentation is highly encouraged. Electronic submission, with a facsimile copy of signature pages, is preferred in order to expedite processing.
