DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE

Defense Acquisition Regulations System

48 CFR Chapter 2

[Docket No. DARS-2014-0012]


Review of Statutory and Regulatory Requirements

AGENCY: Department of Defense.

ACTION: Request for public comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Director of Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy 
(DPAP) is currently conducting an assessment to identify impacts 
experienced by industry resulting from contracting statutes.

DATES: Submit written comments to the address shown below on or before 
March 14, 2014. Comments received will be considered by DoD in the 
formation of a recommendation to the Secretary of Defense if a revision 
to the definition is necessary and appropriate.

ADDRESSES: Submit comments to: Mr. Michael Canales, Room 5E621, 3060 
Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-3060. Comments may also be 
submitted by fax at (703) 614-1254, or by email at 
michael.j.canales4.civ@mail.mil.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Michael Canales, DPAP/CPIC, by 
telephone at (703) 695-8571, or by email at 
michael.j.canales4.civ@mail.mil.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The purpose of the assessment is to support 
an internal Department of Defense (DoD) effort to reduce compliance 
impacts that do not achieve the benefits intended by contracting 
statutes. As part of this assessment, DPAP would like to receive the 
views of interested parties identifying particular impacts associated 
with specific contracting statutes. There is an extensive body of law 
and regulation that govern the Department's business. We are seeking to 
better understand the impact experienced by industry resulting from 
requirements based on statute. Our initial review identified 
approximately 400 DFARS requirements based solely on statute. The 
Director, DPAP, is soliciting public input to identify particular 
impacts associated with specific contracting statutes, with reference 
to--
     Particular impacts associated with specific contracting 
statutes;
     Why the identified impact does not achieve the intended 
benefit of the identified legislation, or why the intended benefit is 
not helpful to the Department; and
     Any recommendations for alternative approaches to achieve 
the intended benefit of the identified legislation.
    We are also interested in candidate DFARS and component supplements 
requirements that, although not based in statute, warrant similar 
consideration.

Editor, Defense Acquisition Regulations System.
