DFARS Proposed Checklist Rule Becoming Final

Once upon a time there was a proposed rule (back in late 2011) with comments through January 2012.  The rule dealt with adding a proposal adequacy checklist to the DFARS Proposal Adequacy Checklistnever-ending stream of required documents for DOD contract compliance.  Many people looked and commented and after over a year of consideration, the rule is becoming final – effective immediately (publication is March 28, 2013).

Basically, the rule will amend the DFARS to add a checklist for contractors to complete in RFPs requiring certified cost or pricing data, if the contracting officer chooses to use the provision.  The checklist is straightforward and I created a PDF if anyone wants one.    In the end, the list went from originally being 47 items to 36.  Congrats to all those who left comments.

  86. Marilyn Erwin says:

    We were surprised in early 2011 when a proposal audit pinged us for not getting this checklist from our major subcontractors, or providing it for our own proposal. After that, we began requiring it from subs who were submitting unsanitized proposals to DCAA or the government customer directly. It’s served us well. I’ll be eager to see the new and improved version. Thank you for your kind offer, and please foward a copy to me.
