SUMMARY: DATES: Effective Date: March 30, 2012. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Amy G. Williams, telephone 571–372– 6106. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background DoD published a proposed rule in the Federal Register at 76 FR 71922 on November 21, 2011, to separate provisions and clauses that are currently combined in order to comply with DFARS drafting conventions. A provision is included only in the solicitation, and generally includes representations and certifications, to which the offeror responds in its offer. A contract clause is included in both the solicitation and the resultant contract, and provides the terms that apply throughout contract performance. It is inconsistent with DFARS drafting conventions to combine a provision and a clause in a single clause. This rule removes the representations from the following five DFARS clauses and creates five new provisions to be used in solicitations that include the associated clauses: Report suspected violations to the address at PGI 203.8(a).
