Class Deviation 2011-O0007
Requirement for Accelerated Payments to Small Businesses

Effective immediately, the Department of Defense (DoD) will commence implementation of the requirement at the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement 232.903 and 232.906 to make accelerated payments to small businesses. All DoD entitlement and payment systems need to be modified to accommodate this policy change. As a result, accelerating payments to small businesses will be accomplished in a phased approach as these systems are modified. In the initial phase, the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) will modify DoD's largest payment system, the Mechanization of Contract Administration Services system. Subsequent phases will consist of a system-by-system initiation of accelerated payments as DFAS and the other DoD Components update their respective systems to accommodate the accelerated payment procedures.

We will update this class deviation as each system acquires the capability to perform the accelerated payment process. This class deviation will remain in effect until superseded or rescinded.
