A summary for the FAR rule follows. For the actual revisions and/or amendments made by this FAR case, refer to FAR Case 2010-016.

FAC 2005-49 amends the FAR as specified below:

Public Access to the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAR Case 2010-016) (Interim)

This interim rule amends the FAR to implement section 3010 of the Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111-212), enacted July 29, 2010. Section 3010 requires that the Administrator of the General Services post all information contained in the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS), excluding past performance reviews, on a publicly available Web site.

This interim rule notifies contractors that FAPIIS data, excluding past performance reviews, will be available to the public after a certain date, and creates a new FAR clause to support the posting of information in FAPIIS. Contracting officers are encouraged to the extent feasible to amend existing solicitations in accordance with FAR 1.108(d), in order to include this revised clause in contracts to be awarded on or after the effective date of this rule.
