DOD/DARC RIN: 0750-AI90 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Contract Financing (DFARS Case 2015-D026) 

DoD proposed to amend the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) regarding the use of customary contract financing, other than loan guarantees and advance payments, indentified in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) part 32, on fixed price contracts with a period of performance in excess of one year that meet the dollar thresholds established in FAR 32.104(d).  DoD has determined that the use of such customary contract financing provides improved cash flow as an incentive for commercial companies to do business with DoD, is in DoD's best interest, and requires not further justification of its use. DoD does not expect this rule to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.
