Rule Implements Selected Reserve Evaluation Factors

The Department of Defense has amended the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement by finalizing (70,020.245), without change, a proposed rule implementing Section 819 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2006, which authorizes DoD to use an evaluation factor that considers whether an offeror intends to perform a contract using employees or individual subcontractors who are members of the Selected Reserve. The rule requires offerors to submit documentation supporting any stated intent to use these types of employees or subcontractors. The rule adds new provisions to DFARS Part 215, Contracting by Negotiation, at DFARS 215.370 through DFARS 215.370-3 to implement these new requirements. The rule also creates corresponding solicitation and contract clauses at DFARS 252.215-7005 and DFARS 252.215-7006 to address the evaluation factor and the obligations of a contractor awarded a contract based on the evaluation factor. In addition, the rule adds a new provision to the DFARS companion resource, Procedures, Guidance, and Information, at PGI 215.370-2. The final rule carries an October 20, 2008, effective date, and its text appears at 70,016.492.
