    What is the hierarchy among the following: 1) U.S.C., 2) Public Law, 3) FAR, and 4) DFARS? Thank you. Jeff


    Answer

    Ref: An Introduction to the Structure and Sources of American Law 
    "Most laws enacted by a legislative body, and most rules promulgated by an administrative
    agency, are collected by subject matter into some compilation, that is, they are codified. Thus, laws
    passed by the Congress and signed by the President in a particular session are given a Public Law
    number (e.g., PL 111-8) and published chronologically in the Statutes at Large (e.g., 123 Stat 524);
    their provisions are collected, by subject matter, in the United States Code (e.g., 7 U.S.C. § 138)."

    Therefore ranking: Public Law > U.S.C > FAR > DFARS
