Title: ●Definition of Multiple-Award Contract (DFARS Case 2011-D016) 
Abstract: This rule amends the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) by revising the definition of multiple-award contract at DFARS 207.107-2. The revisions are being made to correct the current definition by: 1. Deleting "Orders place using" to reflect that the multiple-award contract is the basic schedule, not the individual orders placed under it; 2. Adding "or Department of Veterans Affairs" to correctly reflect the agencies that have statutory authority to issue schedule contracts; and 3. Adds hyphens where appropriate for unit modifiers. The revised DFARS language is correcting previous imprecision in implementing the statute. No policy or substantive changes are being made. Therefore, in accordance with FAR 1.501 and 41 U.S.C. 1707, publication for public comments is not necessary.
