qualification, and use of industrial resources manufactured or 
developed with assistance provided under Title III of the DPA.

the contracting officer, to test Title III industrial resources for 
qualification, and provide the test results to the Defense Production 
Act Office. The FAR 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
