    What does the term "treatment accorded affiliates" mean. As it is used in FAR 44.303 (e).


    Answer

    The term "Treatment accorded affiliates" is opened ended based on the situation it is used in.  The beginning paragraph of 44.303 discusses some exclusions and goes on to discuss areas where special attention shall be given, one of which is 44.303 (e).  The dictionary defines "affiliate" as "to connect or associate with"  which goes along with the rest of 44.303 (e) .  My suggestion would be to refer your concern to your legal staff and the policy shop in your organization to address the concerns of the contractor as well as to see if this issue has been addressed before in your organization.
