DoD Issues Final Rule for Construction and Architect-Engineer Services Performance Evaluation
September 20, 2011
DoD is issuing a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to remove the requirement to use DoD-unique forms to prepare contractor performance evaluations for construction and architect-engineer services. Effective Date: September 20, 2011. reference Federal Register Volume 76, Number 182 (Tuesday, September 20, 2011).
This rule removes the requirement to use DoD-unique forms to document contractor past performance for construction and Architect-Engineer services. On April 19, 2011, DoD published a proposed rule in the Federal Register at 75 FR 21851 to delete outdated procedures and references to obsolete DD forms. No public comments were received in response to the proposed rule.
One editorial change is being made to the final rule. The references to ''A-E'' are revised to read ''architect-engineer'' in sections 236.102, 236.602-70, 236.606-70, and in 236.609-70.
