Over twenty years ago, the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act (FASA) was passed, ushering in what promised to be an easier way to do business with the federal government. A core focus of FASA was the commercial item regime, which encouraged agencies to obtain commercial products to meet their needs whenever possible. This session will look back at the much-ridiculed specification-driven regime and the resulting call for reform that led to the passage of FASA. Then, learn about the current regulations governing the acquisition of commercial items, including the multi-part definition of “commercial item,” and gain a clear delineation of which contract clauses are applicable and inapplicable to “commercial items” and “commercially available off-the-shelf items.” Explore other key aspects of commercial item contracting, including the solicitation process, use of past performance information, subcontracting issues, and the progress that has been made over the twenty years since FASA.
