Rules Listed in FAC 2019-04
|I *||Ombudsman for Indefinite-Delivery Contracts||2017-020||Jackson.|
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 2019-04 amends the FAR as follows:
Item I—Ombudsman for Indefinite-Delivery Contracts (FAR Case 2017-020)
DoD, GSA, and NASA are issuing a final rule amending the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to implement a new clause for use in multiple-award indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracts that identifies the agency task-order and delivery-order ombudsman's responsibilities and contact information. This rule implements a standardized method to provide the requisite information to contractors via a single contract clause for use by all agencies. This rule intends to minimize the impact on contractors resulting from the variety of ways in which task-order and delivery-order ombudsman information is communicated by agencies.
Item II—Technical Amendments
Editorial changes are made at FAR 1.201-1 and 52.246-21.
