Start Preamble


Department of Veterans Affairs.


Final rule; correction.


On February 21, 2018, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) published a final rule prescribing five new Economic Price Adjustment clauses for firm-fixed-price contracts, identifying VA's task-order and delivery-order ombudsman, clarifying the nature and use of consignment agreements, adding policy coverage on bond premium adjustments and insurance under fixed-price contracts, and providing for indemnification of contractors for medical research or development contracts. It contained an erroneous amendatory instruction citing the wrong CFR section. This document corrects that error.


This correction is effective on March 23, 2018.
