This document sets forth the baseline functional requirements for records management application (RMA) software. A draft of the revised document is available for review and comment. Version 1 of DOD 5015.2–STD was issued November 24, 1997 and addressed basic requirements for RMA software. On June 19, 2002, Version 2 was issued, and was later endorsed by National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) as a standard for use by all federal agencies. Version 2 expanded on previous requirements and added requirements for tracking classified records. Version 3 of the standard completes eGovernment initiative taskings to both DoD and NARA. It incorporates baseline requirements for RMA to RMA inteoperability and archival transfer to NARA. Furthermore, this version encourages the development of RMA software to adhere to DoD net-centric information sharing principles. The DoD Components will use this standard in the implementation of their records management programs. Additionally, this standard is widely used throughout the U.S. by numerous states and counties as well as many foreign governments. The new net-centric thrust of this standard should be influential well beyond the Department of Defense. DATES: Submit comments by September 25, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of Defense is requesting review and comment on version 3 of DoD’s 5015.2 standard, ‘‘Design Criteria Standard for Electronic Records Management Software Applications’’. Version 1 of DoD 5015.2–STD was issued November 24, 1997 and addressed basic requirements for electronic records management applications. On November 18, 1998, the Archivist of the United States sent a letter to the ASD(C3I), stating that DoD 5015.2–STD conformed with the requirements of the Federal Records Act and the implementing records management regulations found in 36 Code of Federal Regulations, 1220– 1238. DoD Directive 5015.2 issued March 6, 2000 restated that it is DoD policy to create, maintain, and preserve information as records, in any media, that document the transaction of business and mission in wartime and peacetime to provide evidence of DoD Component organization, functions, policies, procedures, decisions, and activities as provided in Chapter XII of 36 CFR, Chapters 29, 31, 33, 35 of 44 U.S.C. and DoD 5015.2–STD. Version 2 of DoD 5015.2–STD was issued on June 19, 2002, and endorsed by NARA on January 15, 2003 as a standard for use by all federal agencies. Version 2 expanded onPervious requirements and added new requirements for RMAs to manage classics records. Version 3 represents the ongoing development of the standard and the DoD’s RMA needs, in partnership with NARA. The new proposed version incorporates additional baseline requirements for RMA to RMA interoperability, archival transfer of records to NARA, and encourages the development of RMA software that adheres to the DoD’s net-centric information sharing principles. The DoD Components will use this standard in the implementation of their records management programs. This standard, endorsed by NARA for Federal agencies, has been traditionally used throughout the U.S. by numerous states and counties as well as many foreign E:\FR\FM\27JYN1.SGM 27JYN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    The information relative to the place of performance and owner of 
plant or facility, if other than the prospective contractor, is a basic 
requirement when contracting for supplies or services (including 
construction). This information is instrumental in determining bidder 
responsibility, responsiveness, and price reasonableness. A prospective 
contractor must affirmatively demonstrate its responsibility. Hence, 
the Government must be apprised of this information prior to award. The 
contracting officer must know the place of performance and the owner of 
the plant or facility to (1) determine bidder responsibility; (2) 
determine price reasonableness; (3) conduct plant or source 
inspections; and (4) determine whether the prospective contractor is a 
manufacturer or a regular dealer. The information is used to determine 
the firm's eligibility for awards and to assure proper preparation of 
the contract. Contractors can complete the provision electronically in 
the On-Line Representation and Certifications Application (ORCA); 
however, because the data being collected could change for a specific 
solicitation, contractor's will still be required to submit place of 
performance information on an exceptional basis; that is, whenever the 
place of performance for a specific solicitation is different from the 
place of performance shown in ORCA.
