The Department of Defense is conducting an assessment to identify the impacts of contracting statutes on industry. Specifically, the Director of Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy is soliciting public input to identify:
- particular impacts associated with specific contracting statutes;
- an explanation of why the identified impact does not achieve the intended benefit of the identified legislation or why the intended benefit is not helpful to DoD; and
- recommendations for alternative approaches to achieve the intended benefit of the identified legislation.
DoD is also interested in non-statutory DFARS and component supplement requirements that warrant similar consideration. The assessment is part of an internal DoD effort to reduce compliance impacts that do not achieve the benefits intended by contracting statutes.
In a February 25, 2014, filing, DoD extended the comment period to April 23, 2014..
