Item I—Payments Under Time-and-Materials and Labor-Hour Contracts (FAR Case 2004-015)
This final rule revises and clarifies policies related to award and administration of noncommercial item Time-and-Materials (T&M) and Labor-Hour (LH) contracts and the policies regarding payments made under those contracts. The objectives of the changes are to ensure fair and reasonable prices under T&M and LH contracts and to eliminate confusion related to payment amounts for subcontractor provided labor.
Item II—Additional Commercial Contract Types (FAR Case 2003-027)
This final rule implements section 1432 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2004 (Pub. L. 108-136). Title XIV of the Act, referred to as the Services Acquisition Reform Act of 2003 (SARA), amended section 8002(d) of the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act of 1994 (FASA) (Pub. L. 103-355, 41 U.S.C. 264) to expressly authorize the use of Time-and-Materials (T&M) and Labor-Hour (LH) contracts for commercial services under specified conditions.Start Signature
