April 26, 2011, DoD, GSA, and NASA proposed to amend the FAR to revise regulatory coverage on organizational conflicts of interest (OCI) and provide additional coverage regarding contractor access to nonpublic information (76 FR 23236). The proposed rule sought public comment on a revised approach to OCI and unequal access to nonpublic information, as well as the OCI framework for major defense acquisition programs implemented in the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) via DFARS Case 2009-D015 (75 FR 20954, April 22, 2010).
Given the amount of time that has passed since publication of the proposed rule, and potential changed circumstances, a decision has been made not to proceed with finalization of the FAR rule. Accordingly, the proposed rule published at 76 FR 23236 on April 26, 2011, is withdrawn and FAR Case 2011-001 is closed. Consideration of any future amendments to the FAR related to organizational conflicts of interest or unequal access to nonpublic information will be accomplished under a new FAR case.
