FAC 2005-11 amends the FAR as specified below:

Item I—Earned Value Management System (EVMS) (FAR Case 2004-019)

This final rule amends the Federal Acquisition Regulation to implement Earned Value Management System (EVMS) policy in accordance with OMB Circular A-11, Part 7 and the supplement to Part 7, the Capital Planning Guide. The FAR will require the use of an EVM System that complies with the guidelines of ANSI/EIA Standard - 748, in major acquisitions for development, and in other acquisitions in accordance with agency procedures. An agency shall conduct an Integrated Baseline Review (IBR) when EVMS is required. Offerors shall not be eliminated from consideration for contract award because they do not have an EVMS that is compliant with the ANSI/EIA standards, provided they submit an EVMS implementation plan with their proposal.

Item II—Emergency Acquisitions (FAR Case 2005-038)

This interim rule revises FAR Part 18 to provide a single reference to acquisition flexibilities that may be used during emergency situations. This change is expected to improve the Government’s ability to expedite acquisition of supplies and services during emergency situations. The FAR Part 18 makes no change to existing contracting policy.
