Rule Addresses Manufacturing Risk in Major Defense Acquisitions


An interim rule issued by the Department of Defense amends the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement to implement Section 812 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011 (PL 111-383), which instructed DoD to issue guidance that required appropriate consideration of the manufacturing readiness of potential contractors and subcontractors as a part of the source selection process for major defense acquisition programs. Accordingly, the rule amends DFARS 215.304 to state the manufacturing readiness and manufacturing-readiness processes of potential contractors and subcontractors shall be considered as a part of the source selection process for major defense acquisition programs. The effective date of the rule is June 29, 2011. Comments referencing DFARS Case 2011-D031 are due August 29, 2011. For the text of the rule, see 70,016.655.
