VA RIN: 2900-AQ23 Publication ID: Fall 2021 
Title: VA Acquisition Regulation: Department of Veterans Affairs Acquisition Regulation System 

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposes to amend and update its VA Acquisition Regulation (VAAR) in phased increments to revise or remove any policy superseded by changes in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), to remove any procedural guidance internal to VA into the VA Acquisition Manual (VAAM), and to incorporate any new agency specific regulations or policies. These changes streamline and align the VAAR with the FAR and remove outdated and duplicative requirements and reduce burden on contractors. The VAAM incorporates portions of the removed VAAR as well as other internal agency acquisition policy. VA will rewrite certain parts of the VAAR and VAAM, and as VAAR parts are rewritten, will publish them in the Federal Register.  In particular, this rulemaking revises VAAR parts 801 - Department of Veterans Affairs Acquisition Regulation System and 835 - Research and Development Contracting as well as affected part 852 - Solicitation Provisions and Contract Clauses.
