National Aeronautics and Space Administration April 18, 2013 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Federal Acquisition Regulation; Commercial and Government Entity Code
Document Number: 2013-09143
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-04-18
Agency: Department of Defense, General Services Administration, Agencies and Commissions, National Aeronautics and Space Administration
DoD, GSA, and NASA are proposing to amend the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to require the use of Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) codes, including North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) CAGE (NCAGE) codes for foreign entities, for awards valued at greater than the micro-purchase threshold. The CAGE code is a five-character identification number used extensively within the Federal Government. The proposed rule will also require offerors, if owned or controlled by another business entity, to identify that entity during System for Award Management (SAM) registration.
NASA FAR Supplement Regulatory Review No. 1
Document Number: 2013-06441
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-04-18
Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Agencies and Commissions
NASA is updating the NASA FAR Supplement (NFS) with the goal of eliminating unnecessary regulation, streamlining overly burdensome regulation, clarifying language, and simplifying processes where possible. This proposed rule is the first in a series and includes updates and revisions to five NFS parts. On January 18, 2011, President Obama signed Executive Order 13563, Improving Regulations and Regulatory Review, directing agencies to develop a plan for a retrospective analysis of existing regulations. The revisions to this rule are part of NASA's retrospective plan under EO 13563 completed in August 2011.
