Title: ●Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR); FAR Case 2023-006, Preventing Organizational Conflicts of Interest in Federal Acquisition 

DoD, GSA, and NASA are proposing to amend the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to implement the Preventing Organizational Conflicts of Interest in Federal Acquisition Act (Pub. L. 117-324). The statute requires the FAR to be revised to provide and update definitions, guidance, and examples related to organizational conflicts of interest (OCI), including the creation of solicitation provisions and contract clauses to avoid or mitigate OCI, that require contractors to disclose information relevant to potential OCI and limit future contracting. The statute also requires the FAR be updated to permit contracting officers to take into consideration professional standards and procedures to prevent OCI to which an offeror or contractor is subject.
