[DFARS Case 97-D024]

Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement; Order for Supplies or Services

AGENCY: Department of Defense (DoD).

ACTION: Final rule.

SUMMARY: The Director of Defense Procurement has issued a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to update instructions for completion of a form that DoD contracting officers use to place orders for supplies and services.

EFFECTIVE DATE: January 15, 1999.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Amy Williams, Defense Acquisition Regulations Council, PDUSD (A&T) DP (DAR), IMD 3D139, 3062 Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-3062. Telephone (703) 602-0131; telefax (703) 602-0350. Please cite DFARS Case 97-D024.


  1. Background

    This final rule amends DFARS 253.213-70 to update instructions for completion of DD Form 1155, Order for Supplies or Services. The amendments address use of the form for purchases under blanket purchase agreements, and make other minor editorial changes.

  2. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The final rule does not constitute a significant revision within the meaning of FAR 1.501 and Public Law 98-577 and publication for public comment is not required. However, comments from small entities concerning the affected DFARS subpart will be considered in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Such comments should cite DFARS Case 97-D024.

  3. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the final rule does not impose any information collection requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.
