Effective immediately, contracting officers are prohibited from awarding prime vendor contracts for depot-level maintenance and repair of a weapon system or other military equipment until they are notified that the Secretary of Defense or the Secretary of a Military Department has submitted, 30 days prior to the award of the proposed contract, the report to Congress required by section 346 of Pub. L. 105-261, as amended (10 U.S.C. 2464 note). This report contains information on-
(1) Competitive procedures to be used;
(2) Cost/benefit analysis demonstrating savings over the life of the contract;
(3) Analysis of conformance with 10 U.S.C. 2466; and
(4) A description of measures taken to ensure 10 U.S.C. 2464 is not violated.
This deviation remains in effect until implemented in the DFARS, or otherwise rescinded.
