    This final rule amends the FAR to implement sections 816 and 1641 
of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 
2017 (Pub. L. 114-328). These sections of the NDAA allow for higher

of supplies or services which support international disaster 
assistance, response to an emergency or major disaster, or defense 
against or recovery from a cyber attack.

Item II--Governmentwide and Other Interagency Contracts (FAR Case 2018-

section removes the requirement for agencies to make a determination 
that the use of an interagency acquisition represents the best 
procurement approach. This final rule only removes a requirement for

contracting method. The removal of this requirement only affects the
