SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    Title III of the Defense Production Act (DPA) of 1950 authorizes 
various forms of Government assistance to encourage expansion of

qualification, and use of industrial resources manufactured or

    FAR 34.1 and 52.234-1 require contractors, upon the direction of 
the contracting officer, to test Title III industrial resources for 
qualification, and provide the test results to the Defense Production 
Act Office. The FAR

[[Page 38867]]

coverage also expresses Government policy to pay for such testing and 
provides definitions, procedures, and a contract clause to implement 
the policy. This information is used by the Defense Production Act 
Office, Title III Program, to determine whether the Title III 
industrial resource has been provided an impartial opportunity to 
qualify.
