Research specific versions in a few clicks of a mouse - Government contract law stipulates that clauses in effect at the issuance of a contract continue to govern throughout the life of the contract, no matter how much time elapses. That's why contractors and procuring agents alike need a ready reference they can refer to throughout the administration of a contract-and renegotiation of the next. FAR Archives lets you see at a glance how the FAR and selected agency supplements read when your contracts were signed, and provides documented proof of those conditions.

Search and access the exact information you need in seconds - CCH's powerful software allows you to browse through the Federal Acquisition Regulation, plus related military and civilian agency supplements. An annotated archive of the original FAR, FAR Archives lists documents by section number, title and effective date; cite lines provide amendment history so you can track every change made to a section by Federal Acquisition Circular, date or Federal Register page number. If you know when your contract was signed, you're just a few mouse clicks away from the exact clauses in effect!

Archived quarterly for convenient, accurate reference - The Federal Acquisition Regulation is constantly evolving. FAR Archives is updated quarterly so you'll always have access to older versions of the regulations. As current regulations are updated, the replaced versions are moved into the Archives.
