Proposed DFARS Rule to Provide Guidance on Assessing Commercial Price Reasonableness

August 5, 2015

On August 3, the DoD issued a proposed rule, with comments due by October 2, to amend the DFARS to clarify the amount and types of data that contracting officers may require from contractors in order to perform price reasonableness assessments for commercial items. The proposed rule addresses (1) the conditions under which prior sales information is sufficient, (2) when "uncertified cost data" will be required and the required format, and (3) the limits on requiring additional cost information when there are "sufficient nongovernment sales to establish reasonableness of price."
