SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This final rule amends the DFARS as follows:

1. Revises the format and presentation of the list of solicitation provisions and Start Printed Page 2019contract clauses for the acquisition of commercial items at DFARS 212.301(f). No changes are made to the provisions and clauses or to the prescriptions for their use, only the manner in which they are listed. Instead of a single continuous list, the provisions and clauses are being grouped and listed by the applicable DFARS part. This change will facilitate making additions or deletions to the appropriate part of the list without having to redesignate and renumber unaffected paragraphs in other parts to accommodate such changes.

2. Revises the provision prescriptive language at DFARS 225.1101, paragraph (9), for clarity and to align with the format used for other prescription paragraphs within this section. No changes are made to the provision or the substance of the prescriptive language for using the provision.

3. Corrects the estimated value cited at DFARS 225.1101(10)(i) to read $100,000 in lieu of $79,507.

4. Updates the address of the National GeoSpatial-Intelligence Agency at DFARS 245.102(1)(ii)(A).
