Title: Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR); FAR Case 2020-016, Rerepresentation of Size and Socioeconomic Status 

This rule will require contractors to rerepresent its size and economic status for all set-aside orders issued under full and open multiple-award contracts. Additionally, rerepresentation is required for orders issued under a small business set-aside multiple-award contract where the orders are further set-aside exclusively for a particular socioeconomic category and the required socioeconomic status differs from the underlying multiple-award contract. Orders issued under any Federal Supply Schedule are exempt from the requirement to rerepresent size and or socioeconomic status. This rule is being issued in accordance with the Small Business Administration final rule published October 16, 2020 titled "Consolidation of Mentor-Protégé Programs and Other Government Contracting Amendments.”
