SYNOPSIS: OPM is proposing to update FEGLI's LIFAR to incorporate changes in administrative policy and practices and make clarifying language changes.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: On August 27, 1993, OPM issued the LIFAR, which identifies basic and significant acquisition policies that are unique to the FEGLI Program. It has not been updated since its issuance, and it does not reflect changes that has been incorporated in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) beginning with the passage of the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act of 1994, nor does it reflect changes in the FEGLI program's policies that have taken place since then. This proposed rule would revise the LIFAR to reflect the changes to the FAR and the FEGLI program, and to make other clarifying changes.

The following are some of the more significant changes being proposed to the LIFAR:
