Title: Food Services for Dining Facilities on Military Installations (DFARS Case 2015-D012) 

DoD is issuing a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to provide policy and procedures for soliciting offers, evaluating proposals, and awarding contracts for the operation of a military dining facility pursuant to the Randolph-Sheppard Act (R-S Act)(20 U.S.C. 107, et seq.); the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for fiscal year (FY) 2007; the Joint Report and Policy Statement issued pursuant to National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for fiscal year (FY) 2006; and the Committee for Purchase from People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled (CFP) statute (41 U.S.C. 8501, et seq.), et seq.), formerly known as the Javits-Wagner-O'Day (JWOD) Act. In order to clarify the application of the R-S Act and the CFP statute to the operation and management of military dining facilities, DoD is proposing to amend the DFARS to implement the provisions of the Joint Report and Policy Statement (Joint Policy Statement) issued by DoD, the Department of Education (DoED), and the CFP pursuant to section 848 of the NDAA for FY 2006. Pursuant to the Joint Policy Statement, the R-S Act applies to contracts for the operation of a military dining facility, also known as full food services, while the CFP statute applies to contracts and subcontracts for dining support services (including mess attendant services). DoD does not expect this rule to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.
