Chapter 5: Discussion Forum Question

If you work for a company that competes for government/Department of Defense contracts they will be dealing with DFARS, Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation AKA “The Berry Amendment”.

DFARS implements and supplements the FAR (Federal Acquisition Regulation). The DFARS contains requirements of law, DoD-wide policies, and delegations of FAR authorities, deviations from FAR requirements, and policies/procedures that have a significant effect on the public.

As with any regulation they are tough to read, but if you want to be awarded a gov’t contract you have to abide by the “rules”. So not to kill yourself please look at this document and read chapter 1 only.
