The Department of Defense has issued a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement. The final rule associated with DFARS Case 2017-D011 implements sections 817 and 881(b) of the NDAA for FY 2017 (PL 114-328) to apply domestic source requirements to acquisitions at or below the simplified acquisition threshold when acquiring athletic footwear to be furnished to enlisted members of the Armed Forces upon their initial entry into the Armed Forces. The rule adds Australia and the United Kingdom to the definition of the “National Technology and Industrial Base.” 10 USC 2534, Miscellaneous Limitations on the Procurement of Goods Other Than United States Goods, requires that DoD only procure certain items if the manufacturer of the items is part of the national technology and industrial base. The rule amends DFARS 225.7002-2, DFARS 225.7002-3, DFARS 225.7004-1, DFARS 225.7004-3, DFARS 225.7006-1, DFARS 225.7006-3, DFARS 225.7006-4, DFARS 252.225-7037, and DFARS 252.225-7038. There were no changes to the proposed rule (¶70,020.416). For the text of this rule, see ¶70,016.965. The effective date of the rule is December 21, 2018.
