The Department of Defense is seeking input on Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement solicitation provisions and contract clauses that may be appropriate for repeal, replacement, or modification.
Executive Order 13777, Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda, issued February 24, 2017, directed agencies to establish a regulatory reform task force. The task forces are instructed to evaluate existing regulations and “make recommendations to the agency head regarding their repeal, replacement, or modification.”
Further, the task forces are instructed to identify regulations that: eliminate jobs, or inhibit job creation; are outdated, unnecessary, or ineffective; impose costs that exceed benefits; or interfere with regulatory reform initiatives and policies.
Pursuant to section 3(e) of E.O. 13777, which calls on the task forces to “seek input and other assistance, as permitted by law, from entities significantly affected by [f]ederal regulations,” the DFARS Subgroup to the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force is seeking public input on the DFARS Part 252 solicitation provisions and contract clauses.
DoD will not respond to each individual comment, but it may follow-up with respondents to clarify comments.
Submit comments referencing “DFARS-RRTF-2017-01” by August 21, 2017.
