FAR RIN: 9000-AN84 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR); FAR Case 2019-001, Analysis for Equipment Acquisitions 

DoD, GSA, and NASA are proposing to amend the FAR by implementing section 555 of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Reauthorization Act for FY 2018 (Pub. L. 115-254), which requires equipment to be acquired using the method of acquisition most advantageous to the Government based on a case-by-case analysis of costs and other factors.  Section 555 requires the methods of acquisition to be compared in the analysis to include, at a minimum:  (1) purchase; (2) long-term lease or rental; (3) short-term lease or rental; (4) interagency acquisition; or, (5) acquisition agreements with a State or local government. Section 555 exempts certain acquisitions from this required analysis.
