SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A summary for the FAR rule follows. For the 
actual revisions and/or amendments made by this FAR case, refer to FAR 
Case 2010-016.
    FAC 2005-49 amends the FAR as specified below:

Public Access to the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity 
Information System (FAR Case 2010-016) (Interim)

    This interim rule amends the FAR to implement section 3010 of the 
Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111-212), enacted July 
29, 2010. Section 3010 requires that the Administrator of the General 
Services post all information contained in the Federal Awardee 
Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS), excluding past 
performance reviews, on a publicly available Web site.
    This interim rule notifies contractors that FAPIIS data, excluding 
past performance reviews, will be available to the public after a 
certain date, and creates a new FAR clause to support the posting of 
information in FAPIIS. Contracting officers are encouraged to the 
extent feasible to amend existing solicitations in accordance with FAR 
1.108(d), in order to include this revised clause in contracts to be 
awarded on or after the effective date of this rule.

    Dated: January 19, 2011.
Michael O. Jackson,
Acting Director, Office of Governmentwide Acquisition Policy.
