Class Deviation 2021-O0008
Limitations on Subcontracting for Small Business

This class deviation rescinds and supersedes Class Deviation 2020-O0008, Revision 2, issued on November 6, 2020. Effective September 10, 2021, contracting officers shall use the clause at Attachment 1, 52.219-14, Limitations on Subcontracting (DEVIATION 2021-O0008), in lieu of the clause at Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 52.219-14.

The final rule for FAR Case 2016-011 was published in the Federal Register on August 11, 2021 (86 FR 44233) with an effective date of September 10, 2021. This final rule incorporated into the FAR the revisions to the limitations on subcontracting and the nonmanufacturer rule in the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) final rule issued on May 31, 2016 (81 FR 34243). SBA issued a subsequent final rule on November 29, 2019 (84 FR 65647) which further amended its regulations to include certain exclusions to the limitations on subcontracting for services contracts. These exclusions are addressed in paragraph (e)(1) of the attached deviation clause.

This class deviation remains in effect until incorporated into the FAR or until otherwise rescinded.
