The Department of Defense (DoD) released the final rule on amendments to the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) on October 1st. Sections of the National Defense Authorization Acts were adopted in 2017 and 2018 to establish limitations to the lowest price technically acceptable (LPTA) in the source selection process. The DoD is now implementing these limitations moving forward which should improve the source selection process.
The DoD reviewed and responded to public comments regarding the development of the final rule. Many of the respondents supported the rule and no changes were made to the proposed rule as a result of public comments.
