FAR RIN: 9000-AM94 Publication ID: Fall 2018 
Title: Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR); FAR Case 2015-021; Determination of Fair and Reasonable Prices on Orders Under Multiple Award Contracts 

DoD, GSA, and NASA are proposing to amend the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to direct ordering activity contracting officers to make a determination of fair and reasonable pricing when placing an order against GSA’s Federal Supply Schedules (FSS). The Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act (FASA) of 1994 established a preference for the types of information used to assess price reasonableness.

This rule establishes a practice that will ensure that prices are fair and reasonable at the time the order is placed under the GSA’s FSS. This Government-wide FAR rule will ensure uniform implementation of this FAR change across FAR-based contracts and avoid the proliferation of agency-wide rules and actions (e.g., revisions to FAR supplements or issuance of policy guidance) implementing this requirement.
