All Military Departments and Defense Agencies shall deviate from certain requirements of FAR Parts 45 and 52. This Class Deviation deletes the definition of “Plant Equipment” and amends the definition of Real Property to remove the reference to “Plant Equipment.” The term Plant Equipment is no longer used within DoD.
This class deviation is mandatory for all solicitations issued after January 1, 2008 where “Real Property” is addressed. Contracting officers may modify existing contracts consistent with “FAR 1.108 (d), application of FAR changes to solicitations and contracts.”
This Class Deviation will remain in-place indefinitely, or until such time as the FAR is revised to delete the definition of Plant Equipment and its use within the definition of Real Property.
