FAR RIN: 9000-AO41 Publication ID: Spring 2023 
Title: Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR): FAR Case 2022-004, Enhanced Price Preferences for Critical Components and Critical Items 

DoD, GSA, and NASA are proposing to amend the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to add a list of critical components and critical items and, along with their associated enhanced price preference, that will apply to acquisitions subject to the Buy American statute. The list and accompanying enhanced price preferences will complete the framework added to the FAR as part of implementation of section 8 of Executive Order 14005, Ensuring the Future Is Made in All of America by All of America’s Workers. The proposed rule would provide further guidance to contracting officers on how to evaluate offers for critical components and critical items and provide for a post-award reporting requirement for contractors.
