The proposed rule has three main elements:
- It implements Section 877 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2017, providing for the Treatment of Commingled Items purchased by Contractors under DoD contracts as Commercial Items
- It implements Section 878 of the NDAA for Fiscal Year 2017 by providing for the Treatment of Services Provided by Nontraditional Contractors as Commercial Items; and
- It further implements Section 848 of the NDAA for Fiscal Year 2018, which provides that a contract for an item using FAR part 12 procedures shall serve as a prior commercial item determination. The proposed rule would apply only to DoD acquisitions.
