    Has DFARS Clause 252.212-7001 been deleted from the DFARS? If so, do you know when and why?


    Answer

    Yes, it was deleted on 25 June, 2013.  The  DFARS was amended to simplify prescriptions for provisions and clauses that are applicable to the acquisition of commercial items and specifies flowdown of clauses to commercial subcontracts.  This is being done to all DFAR prescriptions to make it easier for contract writing systems to get the full provision or clause in the respective RFP or contract.  I’ve included the explanation found in the Federal Register and a document showing all the DFARS changes that were made as a result of this 25 June change at https://acc.dau.mil/CommunityBrowser.aspx?id=659620. The provisions and clauses for commercial items are still in the DFARS, they are just documented differently.
