DFARS Rule Addresses Tagging, Labeling, and Marking of GFP

The Department of Defense has finalized, with changes, a proposed rule (70,020.268, DFARS Case 2008-D05) requiring contractors to mark government-furnished property items identified in the contract as subject to serialized item management. New DFARS 245.102(4) provides it is DoD policy that GFP be tagged, labeled, or marked based on DoD marking standards (MIL Standard 130) or other standards, when the requiring activity determines the items are subject to serialized item management. The list of GFP subject to serialized item management is to be identified in the contract in accordance with PGI 245.201-71, GFP attachments to solicitations and award. The policy provision lists exceptions to the tagging, labeling, and marking requirement. In addition, the rule creates a new clause at DFARS 252.245-7001, Tagging, Labeling, and Marking of Government-Furnished Property, which implements the new DoD policy. The rule also redesignates the prescription provision at DFARS 245.107-70 as DFARS 245.107, and makes a conforming change to the clause at DFARS 252.245-7000. In response to comments, the policy provision was moved from DFARS Part 211, Describing Agency Needs, to DFARS Part 245, Government Property, and the list of exceptions was moved from the contract clause to the policy provision. The effective date of the final rule is February 2, 2011. For the text of the rule, see 70,016.619.
