SUBJECT: Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS); Special Procedures for Negotiation of Construction Contracts

SOURCE: Federal Register, August 17, 2000, Vol. 65, No. 160, page 50151

AGENCIES: Department of Defense (DOD)

ACTION: Final Rule

SYNOPSIS: DOD is removing DFARS Subpart 236.4, Special Procedures for Negotiation of Construction Contracts, which consists of DFARS 236.403, Cost-Reimbursement Contracts, because DFARS 236.403 consists of obsolete text that addresses special procedures for fee negotiation under cost-reimbursement construction contracts.

EFFECTIVE DATE: August 17, 2000.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Amy Williams, Defense Acquisition Regulations Council, OUSD(AT&L)DP(DAR), IMD 3D139, 3062 Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-3062; 703-602-0288; fax: 703-602-0350. Cite DFARS Case 2000-D010 when referring to this final rule.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: DFARS Subpart 236.4 had supplemented FAR Subpart 36.4 to address the departmental procedures for negotiating fixed fees under cost-plus-fixed-fee construction contracts and target fees under cost-plus-incentive-fee construction contracts. Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) 90-45, dated January 2, 1997, had redesignated FAR 36.403 as FAR 36.215, Special Procedure for Cost-Reimbursement Contracts for Construction, and simplified the language. DOD has determined that the supplemental text in DFARS Subpart 236.4 is no longer needed, so DFARS Subpart 236.4 is removed.
