Title: Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR); FAR Case 2016-012, Incremental Funding of Fixed-Price Contracting Actions 

DoD, GSA, and NASA are proposing to amend the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to allow for incremental funding of certain fixed-price contracting actions to help minimize disruptions to agency operations, and to provide Federal acquisition professionals with new funding flexibility for fixed-price contracting actions. The FAR addresses incremental funding on cost reimbursement contracts, however, it does not provide coverage on fixed price contracts. Because the FAR is silent on the incremental funding of fixed-price contracts, contracting professionals endorse the full funding of fixed-price contracts as a best practice; however, in many cases full funding is not possible. Implementing this policy will provide the flexibility sought by several agencies. Although individual agencies have implemented their own policy changes in this regard, making this FAR change will provide consistency across all Government agencies.
