Federal Acquisition Regulations: Expanded Reporting of Nonconforming Items

DoD, GSA, and NASA are proposing to revise the FAR to expand Government and contractor requirements for reporting of nonconforming items in partial implementation of section 818 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2012 and implement requirements of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) Policy Letter 91-3, entitled “Reporting Nonconforming Products,” dated April 9, 1991. While section 818 applied only to DoD, only to electronic products, and only to contractors covered by the Cost Accounting Standards (CAS), the FAR Council concluded that the principles expressed in section 818 should be applied beyond DoD, should not be limited to electronic products, and should not be limited to CAS-covered contractors.
