FAR Integrated With Safety Act


On November 7, 2007, the Federal Acquisition Regulatory Council issued an interim rule integrating the liability and litigation protections administered by DHS under the SAFETY Act with federal agency purchases of anti-terrorism technologies and services. Agencies now have standard procurement clauses to use when purchasing products and services for homeland defense, including clauses to allow the acceptance of offers contingent on the issuance of SAFETY Act designations or certifications and equitable adjustments for situations in which SAFETY Act coverage is denied after award.
