Effective immediately, when using funds appropriated under Title I, Department of Defense, Military Construction and Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2015 (Division I of Pub. L. 113-235), enacted December 16, 2014, contracting officers shall use the attached provision and clause prescriptions, in lieu of the prescriptions at DFARS 236.570(c)(1), 236.570(d), and 236.609-70(b). This class deviation implements sections 108, 111, and 112 in the prescriptions for the following DFARS provisions and clause: DFARS 252.236-7010, Overseas Military Construction—Preference for United States Firms; DFARS 252.236-7013, Requirement for Competition Opportunity for American Steel Producers, Fabricators, and Manufacturers; and DFARS 252.236-7011, Overseas Architect Engineer Services—Restriction to the United States Firm.
This deviation implements section 108 by providing a prescription in lieu of DFARS 236.570(d)(1) that deletes the reference to the 2009 Appropriations Act and inserts the citation to Title I of the FY 2015 Military Construction and Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act.
The deviation also implements section 111 and 112 by providing prescriptions in lieu of DFARS 236.609-70(b)(3) and 236.570(c)(1) that replace the term “Arabian Sea" with the term “Arabian Gulf".
This class deviation remains in effect until incorporated in the DFARS or otherwise rescinded.
