Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is amending and updating its VA Acquisition Regulation (VAAR) in phased increments to revise or remove any policy superseded by changes in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), to remove procedural guidance internal to VA into the VA Acquisition Manual (VAAM), and to incorporate any new agency specific regulations or policies. These changes seek to streamline and align the VAAR with the FAR and remove outdated and duplicative requirements and reduce burden on contractors. The VAAM incorporates portions of the removed VAAR as well as other internal agency acquisition policy. VA will rewrite certain parts of the VAAR and VAAM, and as VAAR parts are rewritten, we will publish them in the Federal Register. In particular, this rulemaking revises VAAR concerning Taxes; Quality Assurance; Transportation; Solicitation Provisions and Contract Clauses; and Special Procurement Controls.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 25, 2018, VA published a proposed rule in the Federal Register (83 FR 17979) which announced VA’s intent to amend regulations for VAAR Case RIN 2900– AQ04 (parts 829, 846, and 847). In particular, this final rule revises the 829 authorities to include the applicable U.S. code citations where the Secretary of the Treasury has exempted spirits and alcohol purchases by the Federal government, pursuant to 26 U.S.C. 5214(a)(2), 26 U.S.C. 5271, and 26 U.S.C. 7510; removes section 829.202– 70, Tax exemptions for alcohol products, updates and moves it to the DATES: ■ Appendix B to Part 300—[Amended] DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 48257 VAAM; adds a new section to provide the legislative authorities for withdrawal of distilled spirits from bonded premises free of tax or without payment of tax by, and for the use of, the VA; removes section 829.302, Application of State and local taxes to the Government, to the VAAM; removes 829.302–70, Purchases made from patients’ funds, and the clause it prescribes, 852.229–70, Sales or Use Taxes. In part 846, Quality Assurance, this rule adds a definition of ‘‘rejected goods’’ as used in a revised clause; revises subpart 846.3 to prescribe clauses 852.236–74, Inspection of Construction, 852.246–71, Rejected Goods, 852.246–72, Frozen Processed Foods, 852.246–73, Noncompliance with Packaging, Packing, and/or Marking Requirements, and 852.246–76, Purchase of Shellfish; it reduces subpart 846.4 to three sections, 846.408–70, Inspection of subsistence, 846.470, Use of commercial organizations for inspections and grading services, and 846.471, Food service equipment; it removes a warranty clause because there are sufficient FAR warranty clauses that could be used; removes policy requiring USDA inspections for subsistence since the Department of Agriculture no longer requires this type of inspection; removes coverage requiring inspection of repairs for properties under the Loan Guaranty Program and Direct Loan Programs, as such sections are unnecessary given that a private contractor performs such inspection and repair functions on VA’s behalf; and provides coverage to state VA’s policy regarding guarantee period services. This rule adds guidance in part 847 to contracting officers for VA transportation contracts and transportation-related services and subsequent payments on those contracts; provides guidance on contractual requirements for insurance provisions and contractor personnel performing on VA transportation contracts; provides consignment instructions; and adds a clause providing packing instructions to ensure acceptance by common carriers and safe delivery at destination. This rule also removes all remaining sections of part 870 as the guidance included therein was either moved to other parts, out of date, or duplicative of the FAR. VA provided a 60-day comment period for the public to respond to the proposed rule. The comment period for the proposed rule ended on June 25, 2018 and VA received no comments. This document adopts as a final rule the proposed rule published in the Federal E:\FR\FM\24SER1.SGM 24SER1
