First, I would like to thank Bob Antonio for maintaining this site. It is extremely helpful!  By a internet search in a famous search engine, I discovered a post on WIFCON on August 12, 2016 previously asking the same questions as I am. In response, contributors offered two links neither of which currently work:



From my  research, I did discover two documents:  the 2015 FAR Operating Guide and the 2011 FAR Drafting Guide.  I also have been told that the FAR Council in the spring of each year, advertises/solicits FAR changes. Is this true as I could find no online verification.

My proposed change involves both the FAR and the corresponding DFARS provision.  Any advice on how to get my proposed change into the correct hands would be greatly appreciated.

My thought just based on my quick research. 

You would write to the Administrator of the Administrator of the Federal Acquisition Regulatory Council.  While this link seems to still be the current online info on the Council https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/omb/procurement_far_council considering this is an Obama era link I would probably address the letter via OMB, OFPP to the Administrator.   Or even call the number found here and ask for a proper mailing address for the Council Administrator https://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/

I would recommend that your change be in the context of 41 USC Chapter 13 and in my quick read further suggest that you will have  to weave through lots of references within Chapter to find the most specific reference in the Chapter to base your proposal on.   Reference https://uscode.house.gov/view.xhtml?path=/prelim@title41/subtitle1/divisionB/chapter13&edition=prelim

I also found this which may be something you have already consulted in your research but offered as it does provide a track on how changes to the FAR are made.   https://fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/R42826.pdf

Others might chime in with a better approach.

Best of luck and if you do submit a proposed change through the best avenue that you determine keep us up to date with success by posting in the "What Happened?" area of the Forum

See DFARS 201.201-1(d)(ii):


The public may offer proposed revisions of FAR or DFARS by submission of a memorandum, in the format (including all of the information) prescribed in paragraph (d)(i) of this subsection, to the Director of the DAR Council.
