DoD, GSA and NASA Adopt FAR Amendment

On September 30, 2016, the Department of Defense, General Services Administration and National Aeronautics and Space Administration adopted final rules (without any changes from the interim rule) amending the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) to prohibit their agencies from entering into any contract with a corporation having a delinquent federal tax liability or a felony conviction under federal law within the preceding 24 months, unless the agency has considered suspension or debarment of the corporation in question and has made the determination that suspension or debarment is not necessary to protect the Government’s interests. See the published rule for further details.
