Webinar on Commercial Item Final Rule and Guidebook


On January 31, 2018 the Department of Defense issued its final rule and Guidebook on Commercial Item acquisition. This final rule is DoD's response to Congressional pressure to reduce barriers to entry for non-traditional contractors and streamline DoD's commercial item acquisition process. The new rule answers some questions, but it appears to retain certain unnecessary burdens that may discourage commercial contracting. On March 21 (11:00 am Eastern), Crowell & Moring partner Nicole Owren-Wiest will be presenting during a webinar hosted by Bill Walter of DHG. The program will examine this rule and the new definitions, requirements, and clauses that merit close scrutiny from any contractor supplying commercial goods and services to DoD.
