SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    DoD published a proposed rule in the Federal Register at 78 FR 
65244 on October 31, 2013, to revise and update the prescription and 
the clause at DFARS 252.225-7040, previously titled ``Contractor 
Personnel Authorized to Accompany U.S. Armed Forces Deployed Outside 
the United States,'' to align it with the changes in applicability, 
terminology, and other revisions made by Department of Defense 
Instruction (DoDI) 3020.41, entitled ``Operational Contract Support 
(OCS).''

II. Discussion and Analysis

A. Public Comment

    One respondent submitted a public comment in response to the 
proposed rule, which was considered in development of the final rule.
    Comment: The respondent requested a change to the DFARS clause 
252.225-7040 to include provisions clearly stating that contractors may 
withdraw from contingency operations without the threat of termination 
for default when security conditions dictate withdrawal as a prudent 
course of action. The respondent also recommended a consultation 
process with the local commander or contracting officer's 
representative to discuss security situations and appropriate remedies 
for contractors.
    Response: In response to the public comment, DFARS 252.225-7040, 
paragraph (h)(2) is revised in the final rule to provide that with the 
appropriate approvals, even mission-essential personnel may be 
withdrawn due to security considerations.

B. Other Changes

    Beyond the changes initially proposed, the clause at 252.225-7040 
has been modified as a result of internal comments, as follows:
     Based on feedback from in-theater, paragraph (c)(1)(ii) no 
longer includes the statement that the Contracting Officer will specify 
in the contract the level of protection to be provided to Contractor 
personnel. This is not feasible due to constant fluctuation in the 
circumstances in theater. It is necessary to recognize the reality in 
theater that changing conditions cannot always be foreseen. The clause 
still retains the commitment in paragraph (c)(1) that the Combatant 
Commander will develop a security plan for protection of Contractor 
personnel in locations where there is not sufficient or legitimate 
civil authority and the Combatant Commander decides it is in the 
interest of the Government to provide security through military means. 
However, the level of protection that will be necessary or appropriate 
cannot be specified in the contract in advance. Moreover, taken in 
conjunction with the change regarding withdrawal of mission-essential 
personnel, the contractor personnel may be authorized to leave the area 
if the Combatant Commander is not in a position to provide adequate 
security.
     Paragraph (b)(1) emphasizes that the clause applies to 
both contractors authorized to accompany the Force (CAAF) and non-CAAF. 
The proposed rule included the proposed change of applying the clause 
to non-CAAF as well as CAAF. This change in paragraph (b)(1) just adds 
``to both CAAF and non-CAAF'' for emphasis. It is necessary to make 
this point clearly, because this was one of the most fundamental 
changes proposed, the basis for changing the title of the clause from 
``Contractor Personnel Authorized to Accompany U.S. Armed Forces . . 
.'' to ``Contractor Personnel Supporting U.S. Armed Forces . . .''
     Paragraph (b)(3) replaces the phrase ``individual 
defense'' with ``individual self-defense.'' Likewise, at paragraph 
(j)(1), the phrase ``personal protection'' has been revised to 
``individual self-defense,'' for consistency with the wording of the 
DoDI 3020.41.
     Paragraph (c)(3) now requires that Contractor personnel 
who are issued a letter of authorization must carry it with them at all 
times while deployed. This change is a relatively minor requirement, 
consistent with the DoDI 3020.41. Paragraph (d)(1)(iii) of the clause 
already requires that the Contractor shall ensure that its personnel 
comply with all applicable United States regulations, directives, 
instructions, policies, and procedures.
     Paragraph (e) has been re-titled ``Preliminary personnel 
requirements'' rather than ``Pre-deployment requirements,'' because 
some of the requirements relate to non-CAAF, who do not deploy. This is 
just a semantic correction.
     Paragraph (e)(1)(iii) no longer contains the requirement 
for Contractor personnel to return all U.S.-Government issued 
identification at the end of their deployment. This requirement has 
been relocated to paragraph (h)(4), because the requirement is not a 
preliminary personnel requirement.
     Paragraph (j)(2) clarifies that if contractor personnel 
are authorized to carry weapons in accordance with paragraph (j)(1) of 
the clause, the contracting officer will notify the contractor what 
weapons and ammunition are authorized. This change removes some 
inconsistent statements and re-enforces the overarching policy 
currently stated in paragraph (j)(1), that it is the Combatant 
Commander who authorizes the carrying of weapons for individual self-
defense, in accordance with DoDI 3020.41. The Combatant Commander 
determines whether to authorize in-theater Contractor personnel to 
carry weapons, and what weapons and ammunition will be allowed. It is 
not the contracting officer that authorizes the carrying of weapons, 
``subject to the approval of the Combatant Commander.'' Rather the 
contracting officer passes along to the contractor the authorization of 
the Combatant Commander.

III. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563

    Executive Orders (E.O.s) 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess 
all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public 
health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). E.O. 
13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, 
of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. 
This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not 
subject to review under section 6(b) of E.O. 12866, Regulatory Planning 
and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is not a major rule 
under 5 U.S.C. 804.

IV. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    A final regulatory flexibility analysis has been prepared 
consistent with the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., 
and is summarized as follows.
    This rule updates the clause and prescription for DFARS 252.225-
7040, Contractor Personnel Supporting U.S. Armed Forces Deployed 
Outside the United States, to align the DFARS with the changes in 
applicability, terminology, and other revisions made by Department of 
Defense Instruction (DoDI) 3020.41, entitled ``Operational Contract 
Support (OCS).''
    DoDI 3020.41 was revised and reissued in December 2011. The DoDI 
``establishes policy, assigns responsibilities, and provides procedures 
for OCS, including OCS program management, contract support 
integration, and integration of defense contractor personnel into 
contingency

[[Page 30471]]

operations outside the United States . . .'' (DoDI 3020.41, section 
1.a.).
    There were no significant issues raised by the public comments in 
response to the initial regulatory flexibility analysis. The Chief 
Counsel for Advocacy of the Small Business Administration did not file 
any comments in response to the rule.
    The final rule will impact small businesses with personnel who 
provide direct support to U.S. Armed Forces personnel deployed outside 
the United States. Given the concerted effort by the U.S. to procure 
products and services from local vendors (see, e.g., sections 841 and 
842 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013, 
entitled Extension and Expansion of Authority to Acquire Products and 
Services Produced in Countries Along a Major Route of Supply to 
Afghanistan), the impact on U.S. small businesses should be minimal. In 
its Paperwork Reduction Act estimate for SPOT, DoD estimated that up to 
1,300 companies ultimately could be supporting U.S. armed forces 
deployed outside the United States. Approximately 20 percent of these 
companies are non-U.S. firms (and therefore are not categorized as 
either small or large), and approximately 20 percent of the U.S. 
companies are small businesses, i.e. approximately 200 small 
businesses.
    This rule does not impose any new reporting, recordkeeping, or 
other compliance requirements. The requirement to use the SPOT database 
is not new to this case. It has been in place for several years and is 
applied to all sizes of businesses that have personnel deployed in a 
contingency operation. The SPOT database can be accessed with a laptop 
and is user friendly to encourage real-time updates of the information 
provided.
    DoD did not identify any significant alternatives to the rule that 
would accomplish the stated objective of implementing DoDI 3020.41 and 
that would reduce the impact on small entities.

V. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The rule contains information collection requirements that require 
the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35; however, these changes to the 
DFARS do not impose additional information collection requirements to 
the paperwork burden previously approved under OMB Control Number 0704-
0460, entitled ``Synchronized Predeployment and Operational Tracker 
(SPOT) System,'' in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 
U.S.C. chapter 35).

252.225-7040   Contractor Personnel Supporting U.S. Armed Forces 
Deployed Outside the United States.

* * * * *
    (a) * * *
    Contractors authorized to accompany the Force, or CAAF, means 
contractor personnel, including all tiers of subcontractor personnel, 
who are authorized to accompany U.S. Armed Forces in applicable 
operations and have been afforded CAAF status through a letter of 
authorization. CAAF generally include all U.S. citizen and third-
country national employees not normally residing within the operational 
area whose area of performance is in the direct vicinity of U.S. Armed 
Forces and who routinely are collocated with the U.S. Armed Forces 
(especially in non-permissive environments). Personnel collocated with 
U.S. Armed Forces shall be afforded CAAF status through a letter of 
authorization. In some cases, Combatant Commander subordinate 
commanders may designate mission-essential host nation or local 
national contractor employees (e.g., interpreters) as CAAF. CAAF 
includes contractors previously identified as contractors deploying 
with the U.S. Armed Forces. CAAF status does not apply to contractor 
personnel in support of applicable operations within the boundaries and 
territories of the United States.
* * * * *
    Designated reception site means the designated place for the 
reception, staging, integration, and onward movement of contractors 
deploying during a contingency. The designated reception site includes 
assigned joint reception centers and other Service or private reception 
sites.
* * * * *
    Non-CAAF means personnel who are not designated as CAAF, such as 
local national (LN) employees and non-LN employees who are permanent 
residents in the operational area or third-country nationals not 
routinely residing with U.S. Armed Forces (and third-country national 
expatriates who are permanent residents in the operational area) who 
perform support functions away from the close proximity of, and do not 
reside with, U.S. Armed Forces. Government-furnished support to non-
CAAF is typically limited to force protection, emergency medical care, 
and basic human needs (e.g., bottled water, latrine facilities, 
security, and food when necessary) when performing their jobs in the 
direct vicinity of U.S. Armed Forces. Non-CAAF status does not apply to 
contractor personnel in support of applicable operations within the 
boundaries and territories of the United States.
* * * * *
    (b) General.
    (1) This clause applies to both CAAF and non-CAAF when performing 
in a designated operational area outside the United States to support 
U.S. Armed Forces deployed outside the United States in--
    (i) Contingency operations;
    (ii) Humanitarian assistance operations;
    (iii) Peace operations, consistent with Joint Publication 3-07.3; 
or
    (iv) Other military operations or military exercises, when 
designated by the Combatant Commander or as directed by the Secretary 
of Defense.
    (2) Contract performance in support of U.S. Armed Forces deployed 
outside the United States may require work in dangerous or austere 
conditions. Except as otherwise provided in the contract, the 
Contractor accepts the risks associated with required contract 
performance in such operations.
    (3) When authorized in accordance with paragraph (j) of this clause 
to carry arms for personal protection, Contractor personnel are only 
authorized to use force for individual self-defense.
    (4) Unless immune from host nation jurisdiction by virtue of an 
international agreement or international law, inappropriate use of 
force by contractor personnel authorized to accompany the U.S. Armed 
Forces can subject such personnel to United States or host nation 
prosecution and civil liability (see paragraphs (d) and (j)(3) of this 
clause).
    (5) Service performed by Contractor personnel subject to this 
clause is not active duty or service under 38 U.S.C. 106 note.
    (c) * * *
    (2)(i) Generally, CAAF will be afforded emergency medical and 
dental care if injured while supporting applicable operations. 
Additionally, non-CAAF employees who are injured while in the vicinity 
of U.S. Armed Forces will normally receive emergency medical and dental 
care. Emergency medical and dental care includes medical care 
situations in which life, limb, or eyesight is jeopardized. Examples of 
emergency medical and dental care include examination and initial 
treatment of victims of sexual assault; refills of prescriptions for 
life-dependent drugs; repair of broken bones, lacerations, infections; 
and traumatic injuries to the dentition. Hospitalization will be 
limited to stabilization and short-term medical treatment with an 
emphasis on return to duty or placement in the patient movement system.
    (3) * * * Contractor personnel who are issued a letter of 
authorization shall carry it with them at all times while deployed.
    (4) Unless specified elsewhere in this contract, the Contractor is 
responsible for all other support required for its personnel engaged in 
the designated operational area under this contract.
* * * * *
    (e) Preliminary personnel requirements.
    (1) The Contractor shall ensure that the following requirements are 
met prior to deploying CAAF (specific requirements for each category 
will be specified in the statement of work or elsewhere in the 
contract):
    (i) All required security and background checks are complete and 
acceptable.
    (ii) All CAAF deploying in support of an applicable operation--

[[Page 30473]]

    (A) Are medically, dentally, and psychologically fit for deployment 
and performance of their contracted duties;
    (B) Meet the minimum medical screening requirements, including 
theater-specific medical qualifications as established by the 
geographic Combatant Commander (as posted to the Geographic Combatant 
Commander's Web site or other venue); and
    (C) Have received all required immunizations as specified in the 
contract.
    (1) During predeployment processing, the Government will provide, 
at no cost to the Contractor, any military-specific immunizations and/
or medications not available to the general public.
    (2) All other immunizations shall be obtained prior to arrival at 
the deployment center.
    (3) All CAAF and selected non-CAAF, as specified in the statement 
of work, shall bring to the designated operational area a copy of the 
Public Health Service Form 791, ``International Certificate of 
Vaccination'' that shows vaccinations are current.
    (iii) Deploying personnel have all necessary passports, visas, and 
other documents required to enter and exit a designated operational 
area and have a Geneva Conventions identification card, or other 
appropriate DoD identity credential, from the deployment center.
    (iv) Special area, country, and theater clearance is obtained for 
all personnel deploying. Clearance requirements are in DoD Directive 
4500.54, Official Temporary Duty Abroad, and DoD 4500.54-G, DoD Foreign 
Clearance Guide. For this purpose, CAAF are considered non-DoD 
contractor personnel traveling under DoD sponsorship.
    (v) All deploying personnel have received personal security 
training. At a minimum, the training shall--
    (A) Cover safety and security issues facing employees overseas;
    (B) Identify safety and security contingency planning activities; 
and
    (C) Identify ways to utilize safety and security personnel and 
other resources appropriately.
    (vi) All personnel have received isolated personnel training, if 
specified in the contract, in accordance with DoD Instruction 1300.23, 
Isolated Personnel Training for DoD Civilian and Contractors.
    (vii) Personnel have received law of war training as follows:
    (A) Basic training is required for all CAAF deployed outside the 
United States. The basic training will be provided through--
    (1) A military-run training center; or
    (2) A web-based source, if specified in the contract or approved by 
the Contracting Officer.
    (B) Advanced training, commensurate with their duties and 
responsibilities, may be required for some Contractor personnel as 
specified in the contract.
* * * * *
    (e) * * *
    (2) * * *
    (v) Such employees are required to report offenses alleged to have 
been committed by or against Contractor personnel to appropriate 
investigative authorities.
    (vi) Such employees will be provided victim and witness protection 
and assistance.
* * * * *
    (g) Personnel data.
    (1) The Contractor shall use the Synchronized Predeployment and 
Operational Tracker (SPOT) web-based system, to enter and maintain the 
data for all CAAF and, as designated by USD (AT&L) or the Combatant 
Commander, non-CAAF supporting U.S. Armed Forces deployed outside the 
United States as specified in paragraph (b)(1) of this clause.
    (2) The Contractor shall enter the required information about their 
contractor personnel prior to deployment and shall continue to use the 
SPOT web-based system at https://spot.altess.army.mil/privacy.aspx to 
maintain accurate, up-to-date information throughout the deployment for 
all Contractor personnel. Changes to status of individual Contractor 
personnel relating to their in-theater arrival date and their duty 
location, to include closing out the deployment with their proper 
status (e.g., mission complete, killed, wounded) shall be annotated 
within the SPOT database in accordance with the timelines established 
in the SPOT business rules.
    (h) Contractor personnel.
    (1) The Contracting Officer may direct the Contractor, at its own 
expense, to remove and replace any Contractor personnel who jeopardize 
or interfere with mission accomplishment or who fail to comply with or 
violate applicable requirements of this contract. Such action may be 
taken at the Government's discretion without prejudice to its rights 
under any other provision of this contract, including the Termination 
for Default clause.
    (2) The Contractor shall identify all personnel who occupy a 
position designated as mission essential and ensure the continuity of 
essential Contractor services during designated operations, unless, 
after consultation with the Contracting Officer, Contracting Officer's 
representative, or local commander, the Contracting Officer directs 
withdrawal due to security conditions.
    (3) The Contractor shall ensure that Contractor personnel follow 
the guidance at paragraph (e)(2)(v) of this clause and any specific 
Combatant Commander guidance on reporting offenses alleged to have been 
committed by or against Contractor personnel to appropriate 
investigative authorities.
    (4) Contractor personnel shall return all U.S. Government-issued 
identification, to include the Common Access Card, to appropriate U.S. 
Government authorities at the end of their deployment (or, for non-
CAAF, at the end of their employment under this contract).
* * * * *
    (j) * * *
    (2) If Contractor personnel are authorized to carry weapons in 
accordance with paragraph (j)(1) of this clause, the Contracting 
Officer will-notify the Contractor what weapons and ammunition are 
authorized.
    (3) * * *
    (iv) Comply with applicable Combatant Commander and local commander 
force-protection policies; and
    (v) Understand that the inappropriate use of force could subject 
them to U.S. or host-nation prosecution and civil liability.
* * * * *
    (o) Mortuary affairs. Contractor personnel who die while in support 
of the U.S. Armed Forces shall be covered by the DoD mortuary affairs 
program as described in DoD Directive 1300.22, Mortuary Affairs Policy, 
and DoD Instruction 3020.41, Operational Contractor Support.
* * * * *
    (q) Subcontracts. The Contractor shall incorporate the substance of 
this clause, including this paragraph (q), in all subcontracts when 
subcontractor personnel are supporting U.S. Armed Forces deployed 
outside the United States in--
    (1) Contingency operations;
    (2) Humanitarian assistance operations;
    (3) Peace operations consistent with Joint Publication 3-07.3; or
    (4) Other military operations or military exercises, when 
designated by the Combatant Commander or as directed by the Secretary 
of Defense.
