Class Deviation 2013-O0001
Authorization for Contractors to Use Government Supply Sources in Support of Operation Enduring Freedom

Effective immediately, contracting officers are encouraged to authorize contractors (including contractors with fixed-price contracts) to use GSA Central Asia and South Caucasus Supply Catalog under the GSA Global Supply Program ( in performance of contracts in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. This constitutes a deviation from the policy at FAR 51.101, which restricts the use of Government supply sources in other than cost-reimbursement contracts. Contracting officers may also modify existing contracts to include FAR clause 52.251-1, Government Supply Sources. Contractors should be instructed that GSA local sourcing items can currently be accessed via MILSTRIP requisitioning only, which will necessitate the assignment of a Department of Defense Activity Address Code (DODAAC) by the Department of Defense contracting officer (DFARS PGI 251.1).

This class deviation remains in effect until incorporated in the DFARS or otherwise rescinded.
