    How do we know which DFARS clauses to include using full text versus by in by reference? 52.102 provides guidance for FAR clauses, but there is no DFARS guidance.


    Answer

    Please look at FAR 52.101 (2)  (ii).  I've included the entire section below. It  says that we need to spell out all our DFARS clauses in full text. 
    FAR 52.101 (2) Provisions or clauses that supplement the FAR. Provisions or clauses that supplement the FAR are --
    (A) Prescribed and included in authorized agency acquisition regulations issued within an agency to satisfy the specific needs of the agency as a whole;
    (B) Prescribed and included in a regulation issued by a suborganization of an agency to satisfy the needs of that particular suborganization; or
    (C) Developed for use at a suborganizational level of an agency, not meant for repetitive use, but intended to meet the needs of an individual acquisition and, thus, impractical to include in either an agency or suborganization acquisition regulation. (See 1.301(c).)
    (ii) Supplemental provisions or clauses published in agency acquisition regulations shall be in full text and the prescription for the use of each shall be included. Supplemental provisions or clauses published in agency acquisition regulations shall be numbered in the same manner in which FAR provisions and clauses are numbered except that --
    (A) If it is included in an agency acquisition regulation that is published in the Federal Register and is codified in Title 48, Code of Federal Regulations (48 CFR), the number shall be preceded by the chapter number within 48 CFR assigned by the CFR staff; and
    (B) The sequential number shall be “70” or a higher number (see 1.303).
