DOD, GSA, and NASA Propose to Conform to the New Codified Version of U.S.C. Title 41

October 1, 2012

On September 18, 2012, DOD, GSA, and NASA issued a proposed rule that would amend the FAR to conform to the new codified version of United States Code (U.S.C.) Title 41, “Public Contracts,” which was enacted on January 4, 2011 (Pub. L. 111-350). The proposed rule would change the popular names of 15 acts and change certain terminology that did not involve substantial changes to the meaning of the statutes. Moreover, the proposed rule would also revise standard citations. For example, under the proposed rule, citation to 41 U.S.C. 10a–10d would read: “41 U.S.C. chapter 83.” Written comments on the proposed rule should be submitted on or before November 19, 2012. (77 Fed. Reg. 57950, 9/18/2012.)
