For smaller companies, the most important changes in the Proposed Rule are in a new contract clause, presently named DFARS 252.246-70XX (“Sources of Electronic Parts”), that Department of Defense purchasing activities are to use in solicitations and contracts, including solicitations and contracts using FAR part 12 procedures for the acquisition of commercial items, when procuring— (1) Electronic parts; (2) End items, components, parts, or assemblies containing electronic parts; or (3) Services, if the contractor will supply electronic parts or components, parts, or assemblies containing electronic parts as part of the service. Small business set-asides are subject to the rule.
