Effective immediately, this class deviation supersedes and revises Class Deviation 2020- O0010, Progress Payment Rates, to remove the Alternate II of FAR clause 52.232-16 from the deviation clauses provided for use.
Therefore, when implementing this deviation, contracting officers shall use the attached deviation clauses as follows:
Contracting officers shall use Alternates II and III of FAR clause 52.232-16 as prescribed at FAR 32.502-4(c) and (d) with the deviation for FAR clause 52.232-16 provided in the attachment.
On March 20th, in response to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) national emergency, the Department of Defense issued Class Deviation 2020-O0010 to increase the progress payment rates at DFARS 232.501-1 to 90 percent for large business concerns and 95 percent for small business concerns. This revision is necessary to correct an error regarding Alternate II of the clause at FAR 52.232-16.
This class deviation remains in effect until rescinded.
