SBA’s July 2013 Small Business Subcontracting Revisions Finally Implemented in the FAR

July 21, 2016

On July 14, 2016, DoD, GSA, and NASA published a final rule implementing numerous updates to the FAR to account for regulatory changes affecting the small business subcontracting requirements made by the SBA dating back to July 2013. These changes, which become effective November 1, 2016, range from requiring prime contractors to assign NAICS codes to subcontracts, to providing contracting officers the discretion to establish subcontracting goals at the order level of IDIQ contracts, to protecting subcontractors’ ability to discuss payment or utilization matters with the contracting officer.
