Purpose FAR subpart 9.2 and the associated clause at FAR 52.209–1, implement the statutory requirements of 10 U.S.C. 2319 and 41 U.S.C. 3311, which allow an agency to establish a qualification requirement for testing or other quality assurance demonstration that must be completed by an offeror before award of a contract. Under the qualification requirements, an end item, or a component thereof, may be required to be prequalified. The clause at FAR 52.209–1, Qualification Requirements, requires offerors who have met the qualification requirements to identify the offeror’s name, the manufacturer’s name, source’s name, the item name, service identification, and test number (to the extent known). This eliminates the need for an offeror to provide new information when the offeror, manufacturer, source, product or service covered by qualification requirement has already met the standards specified by an agency in a solicitation. The contracting officer uses the information to determine eligibility for award when the clause at 52.209–1 is included in the solicitation. Alternatively, items not yet listed may be considered for award upon the submission of evidence of qualification with the offer. B. Annual Reporting Burden Respondents: 7,998.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Purpose

    FAR subpart 9.2 and the associated clause at FAR 52.209-1, 
implement the statutory requirements of 10 U.S.C. 2319 and 41 U.S.C. 
3311, which allow an agency to establish a qualification requirement 
for testing or other quality assurance demonstration that must be 
completed by an offeror before award of a contract. Under the 
qualification requirements, an end item, or a component thereof, may be 
required to be prequalified.
    The clause at FAR 52.209-1, Qualification Requirements, requires 
offerors who have met the qualification requirements to identify the 
offeror's name, the manufacturer's name, source's name, the item name, 
service identification, and test number (to the extent known). This 
eliminates the need for an offeror to provide new information when the 
offeror, manufacturer, source, product or service covered by 
qualification requirement has already met the standards specified by an 
agency in a solicitation.
    The contracting officer uses the information to determine 
eligibility for award when the clause at 52.209-1 is included in the 
solicitation. Alternatively, items not yet listed may be considered for 
award upon the submission of evidence of qualification with the offer.
