CCH Offers Comprehensive, Updated Government Contracting Resources
(RIVERWOODS, ILL., August 2, 2007) – Now, contracting professionals seeking to do business with the federal government and Department of Defense have two newly updated guides to help them pinpoint and understand critical government contracting policies and procedures. The Federal Acquisition Regulation and Department of Defense FAR Supplement, published by CCH, are essential references that include the latest additions to the regulations. CCH is part of Wolters Kluwer Law & Business, a leading provider of research information and software solutions in key specialty areas for legal and business professionals.
“With the federal government likely to spend more than $400 billion this year on products and services to meet its agencies needs, it’s critical for those who want a share of the business to follow and stay current with the Federal Acquisition Regulation provisions,” said Sharon Kube, CCH product manager. “These invaluable resources help professionals both comply and keep up to date with the constantly evolving regulations.”
Federal Acquisition Regulation
CCH’s Federal Acquisition Regulation is a comprehensive reference and a leading source for the current Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), which is issued and maintained by the Department of Defense, the General Services Administration and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. This CCH resource reproduces the FAR and all amendments to the regulations issued through July 5, 2007. This essential resource provides all Title 48, Chapter 1 regulations for selling to the government; and a listing of sources of its materials, their dates of issuance and the effective date of each section change made since the initial text was published in the Federal Register in 1983. It also includes four new Federal Acquisition Circulars (including FAC 2005-18), two interim rules and six final rules.
This mid-year edition of Federal Acquisition Regulation covers a dozen major changes, including:
- Definitions for Classified Acquisitions;
- Simplified Procedures for Commercial Items;
- Noncompliance with Cost Accounting Standards;
- Revocation of Executive Order 13204;
- Final Contract Voucher Submissions;
- Labor Relations on Construction Projects;
- Management and Disposition of Government Property; and
- Small Business Size Regulations.
Department of Defense FAR Supplement
CCH’s Department of Defense FAR Supplement (DFARS) covers all current policies and procedures implementing and supplementing the FAR that apply to contracting with the Offices of the Secretary of Defense; the Departments of the Army, Navy and Air Force; the Defense Logistics Agency; and other defense agencies. This comprehensive reference includes all Title 48, Chapter 2 regulations; all Procedures, Guidelines and Information (PGI) sections and the latest PGI changes issued through June 30, 2007; and all rules, interim rules and technical amendments.
This new edition covers 25 major changes, including:
- Emergency Acquisitions;
- Berry Amendment Restrictions;
- Protests, Disputes and Appeals;
- Free Trade Agreements;
- Electronic Payment Requests;
- Notification of Potential Security Issues; and
- Contracting Officer’s Authority.
Both the Federal Acquisition Regulation and Department of Defense FAR Supplement are updated and published every January and July to reflect the latest FAR and DFARS/PGI information.
