Offerors Now Must Disclose Information about Owners, Subsidiaries, and Predecessors
On March 7, 2016, the FAR Council issued a final rule that requires offerors to disclose within the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System any immediate owner or subsidiary and all predecessors of an offeror that held a federal contract or grant within the last three years. The final rule is designed to provide COs with a “more comprehensive understanding of the performance and integrity of the corporation before awarding a Federal contract . . .,” and it may also affect how contractors draft their proposals to explain their corporate family trees.
