  1. Secretary of State, Sir Michael Fallon, has today announced three new missile contracts worth a combined £539 million for state-of-the-art Meteor, Common Anti-air Modular Missile (CAMM) and Sea Viper missile systems at MBDA Stevenage. See gov.uk.
  2. JOANN DAVIS, an individual; PAUL CILLEY, an individual, Plaintiffs-Appellees, v. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; NORMAN CONLEY, Defendants-Appellants.
  3. Our 4,500 approved registration should be made about the end of April. There is a monetary award that goes with this approved registration.
  4. There was an article in the Washington Post today about industry being invited to tell the Administration what regulations needed to be revised and appealed. Here is a set from the The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC). On p. 8 of the AGC document they briefly discuss contract regulation. On p. 12 of the document they write about specifics. Much of this is contracting. Any discussion.
  5. Please identify the meaning of your acronyms--ISR and SSR.
  6. Here is another contracting site that I hope gets fixed. Of course, it needs some appointments.
  7. That's right. The site is from the previous administration. However, for the first time this Administration recognized that OMB is made of offices, and linked OFPP. I assume, now that they have found OFPP, they will update the site as its own. These are small steps but it takes time to figure where things are at. The OMB information is still poor but they are finding things. Progress is progress, even if it is slow. The prior Administration had eight years to manage the White House sites and get them working.
  8. The Administration has now found OFPP.
  9. Pepe: Some of those wonderful people are visitors here.
  10. This will be on the Home Page tomorrow morning. However, I thought I would link it here now. Look at all the players and their friends.

  11. Here is how you use this site for contracting regulations. 1. Every day, you go here. Home Page. 2. What appeared in the Federal Register over the past 2 years or so. Rules & Tools. 3. What happened to the FAR in the past 17 years or so. FAR Research. All brought to you for free by the advertisers on Wifcon.com. [You may find that I miss things at times.]
  12. Take a look at GSAM 519.502-70 Review of non-set-aside determinations.
  13. Many here do add court case citations, regulations, etc., when they write a post. However, often they do not add the link to the source. It is very easy. For example: U. S. Constitution. To link to a page with that document go to the source and copy the url. Highlight the text you want to link--in this case U. S. Constitution--and then click the little "chain link" symbol between the U and the " mark. Drop your url into the url box and voila--you have a nice clean post. After you submit your post, the link will become active.
  14. There are current bills to perfect the procurement process at DHS and VA. Later this year the NDAA will further perfect DoD and whatever other agency that may get caught up into the bill. Currently, there are more perfections being proposed for SBA programs and Buy-America provisions. Its only 3 months into the 115th Congress and Congresses run about 24 months. We're not even talking about budget perfections, such as continuing resolutions, that have already been made or are in the future. Now, we have a new Administration appointing agency regulation busters who are going to perfect the acquisition regulations. Maybe the FAR Councils will get involved. For years, new Congresses and Administrations have been kicking around the procurement rubble left by previous Congresses and Administrations. Its just part of the Procurement Perfection Process and it will never stop and it will never improve anything.
  15. The commission was the 1986 Packard Commission. So it is 31 years ago. The starting page is p, 44. Have fun reading it. Remember GAO came late to the party in 1921. You can read paper after paper, study after study, commission report after commission report, etc. This one provides the quote above and is entitled: The Ghosts of Acquisition Reform Past,, Present And Future. 1996.
