FAR RIN: 9000-AN39 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR); FAR Case 2017-003; Individual Sureties 

DoD, GSA, and NASA are proposing to amend the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to change the kinds of assets that individual sureties must use as security for their individual surety bonds. This change implements section 874 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for FY 2016 (Pub. L. 114-92), codified at 31 U.S.C. 9310, Individual Sureties. Individual sureties will no longer be able to pledge real property, corporate stocks, corporate bonds, or irrevocable letters of credit. The requirements of 31 U.S.C. 9310 are intended to strengthen the assets pledged by individual sureties, thereby mitigating risk to the Government.
