** DF-01: Government Response to Counterfeits: Contracting (An Overview)
Class Overview
When an organization contracts with a government, the resulting contracts use specific government contractual clauses. In the US, the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) contains the forms and clauses used in government contracts. Some agencies and departments have developed contract clauses for their specific requirements. The Department of Defense, for instance, has developed contract clauses that are considered supplements to the FAR and are known as Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS).

In November 2011, the Senate Armed Services Committee held an oversight hearing about counterfeit electronic parts entering the military supply chains. One of the results of the hearing was the amendment of the Fiscal Year 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The amendment commonly referred to as “Section 818,  Detection and Avoidance of Counterfeit Electronic Parts, requires the Department of Defense to issue or revise guidance for purchasing electronic parts, the definition of terms specific to counterfeit electronic parts, and reporting of counterfeit electronic parts.

The UK government has written a government standard to address the prevention of counterfeit materiel from entering the Ministry of Defence supply chain.
