SUBJECT: Navy Acquisition Procedures Supplement (NAPS) Change #97-13, Conforming Changes

SOURCE: Executive Director for Navy Acquisition and Business Management Memorandum, August 11, 2000

AGENCIES: Department of the Navy

ACTION: Revision of the NAPS

SYNOPSIS: To conform the NAPS to recent changes to the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and the Defense FAR Supplement (DFARS), two changes are made to the NAPS. In addition, an agency designation is added at NAPS 5203.104, Violations or Possible Violations.

EDITOR'S NOTE: For more on FAC 97-18, see the June 6, 2000, FEDERAL CONTRACTS DISPATCH "Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) 97-18, Miscellaneous Amendments."

For more on FAC 97-19, see the July 26, 2000, FEDERAL CONTRACTS DISPATCH "Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) 97-19, Miscellaneous Amendments."

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Department of the Navy, Office of the Assistant Secretary, Research, Development and Acquisition, 1000 Navy Pentagon, Washington, DC 20350-1000.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: The following changes are made to the NAPS to conform it to changes in the FAR and the DFARS:

Also, paragraph (a)(1) of FAR 3.104-10, Violations or Possible Violations, requires the contracting officer, if he or she receives information indicating that a violation of the Procurement Integrity Act has occurred, to determine whether the alleged violation "has any impact on the pending award or the selection of the source therefor." Paragraph (a)(2) states that, if the contracting officer determines that there is no impact on the procurement, he or she is to submit a report and documentation to "an individual designated in accordance with agency procedures." Therefore, NAPS 5203.104, Violations or Possible Violations, is added to designate the Chief of the Contracting Office "as the individual to receive the contracting officer's report and documentation concluding that there is no impact on the procurement." (EDITOR'S NOTE: NAPS 5203.104 should actually be NAPS 5203.104-10 to correspond to the FAR numbering. FAR 3.104 is "Procurement Integrity", and FAR 3.104-10 is a subsection of FAR 3.104.)
