SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This final rule amends the DFARS as follows—

1. Directs contracting officers to DFARS Procedures, Guidance, and Information (PGI) for information on the Governmentwide moratorium on public-private competitions by adding a cross reference at DFARS 207.302 and 237.102(b);

2. Corrects a typographical error at DFARS 209.505-4(b)(ii);

4. Corrects a threshold at DFARS 215.408(3)(ii)(A)(1)(i) to reflect $700,000 in lieu of $750,000 because that threshold was not subject to the inflation adjustment at DFARS Case 2014-D025 published in the Federal Register at 80 FR 36903;
