Summaries for each FAR rule follow. For the actual revisions and/or amendments made by these rules, refer to the specific item numbers and subjects set forth in the documents following these item summaries. FAC 2005-87 amends the FAR as follows:

Item I—Information on Corporate Contractor Performance and Integrity (FAR Case 2013-020)

This final rule amends the FAR to implement a section of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 to include in the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System, to the extent practicable, identification of any immediate owner or subsidiary, and all predecessors of an offeror that held a Federal contract or grant within the last three years. The objective is to provide a more comprehensive understanding of the performance and integrity of the corporation before awarding a Federal contract.

This final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.

Item II—Technical Amendments

Editorial changes are made at FAR 4.1703(a)(1), 22.1904(b)(1), 25.1102(d)(3), 36.607(b), 52.212-3(h), 52.212-3(p) and (q), and (p) and (q) of Alternate I, 52.212-5(c)(8), (e)(1)(xv), (e)(1)(ii)(N) of Alternate II, and 52.213-4(b)(1)(ix).
