FAC 2005-34 amends the FAR as specified below:
Item I—Contractor Performance Information (FAR Case 2006-022)
This final rule amends the FAR to revise the contractor performance information process. The FAR revisions include changes to FAR Parts 2, 8, 9, 13, 17, 36, 42, and 53. The purpose of this final rule is to ensure that the FAR clearly reflects the use of the Governmentwide performance information repository, Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS) at http://www.ppirs.gov; requires the evaluation of past performance for orders exceeding the simplified acquisition threshold placed against Federal Supply Schedule contracts, or under a task order or delivery order against a contract awarded by another Federal agency (i.e. Governmentwide acquisition contract or multi-agency contract); recommends past performance information for orders under single agency contracts; consolidates the collection of past performance guidance in Part 42; and, clarifies that the Agency shall identify those responsible for preparing interim and final evaluations.
Item II—Prohibition on Contracting with Inverted Domestic Corporations (FAR Case 2008-009) (Interim)
This interim rule implements Section 743 of Division D of the Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009 (Public Law 111-8), which prohibits the award of contracts using appropriated funds to any foreign incorporated entity that is treated as an inverted domestic corporation or to any subsidiary of one. The interim rule addresses solicitations issued after the date of publication using funds appropriated in Fiscal Years 2006, 2007, and 2008, as well.
Item III—Role of Interagency Committee on Debarment and Suspension (FAR Case 2008-028)
This final rule amends Federal Acquisition Regulation Subpart 9.4 to clarify the role of the Interagency Committee on Debarment and Suspension when more than one agency has an interest in the debarment or suspension of a contractor. Among other responsibilities, the Interagency Committee on Debarment and Suspension is authorized to resolve issues regarding the agency that will have lead responsibility in initiating a suspension or debarment proceeding. The Committee will also coordinate actions among interested agencies with respect to such action. This rule implements the Duncan Hunter National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2009, Section 873(a)(1) and (2).Start Signature
