DoD policies on contract financing are described in Part 32 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and Part 232 of the Defense FAR Supplement. These policies cover a variety of contract finance issues, including non-commercial item purchase financing; commercial item purchase financing; loan guarantees for defense production; advance payments for noncommercial items; progress payments based on costs; contract debts; contract funding; assignment of claims; prompt payment; performance-based payments; electronic funds transfer; electronic submission and processing of payment requests; and levies on contract payments.

DoD is interested in receiving public input on these contract financing policies, particularly with regard to those that are considered to be especially effective or ineffective, along with supporting rationale.
