PGI Coverage in DFARS

The Government Contracts Reporter contains the important changes to the DFARS called called "Procedures, Guidance and Information," or PGI. To find the PGI information menu, walk through Regulations - Agency FAR Supplements - Department of Defense FAR Supplement (DFARS).

The Department of Defense has been working on a transformation initiative to identify improvements and reductions to procurement policies, procedures and processes in the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS).

The Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy (DPAP) established a task force to consider changes and make proposal recommendations. The task force worked hand-in-hand with the Defense Acquisition Regulations System (DARS) to develop legislative proposals for consideration by Congress for future changes to the DFARS. DFARS implemented the Procedures, Guidance and Information (PGI), a companion resource to the DFARS.

PGI is a new Web-based tool to simply and rapidly access non-regulatory Department of Defense (DoD) procedures, and guidance and information relevant to FAR and DFARS topics. PGI is a companion resource containing mandatory and non-mandatory internal DoD procedures, non-mandatory guidance and supplemental information to be used at the discretion of the contracting officer. PGI will not contain policy or procedures that significantly affect the public and will not be published in the Federal Register or the Code of Federal Regulations.

The DFARS remains the source for regulation, implementation of laws as well as DoD-wide contracting policies, authorities and delegations. DFARS will answer the questions, "What is the policy?" and "What are the rules?" DFARS PGI will answer the questions, "How can I execute the policy?" and "Why does this policy exist?"
