Repeal of DFARS Clause “Pricing Adjustments” (DFARS Case 2018-D032)
Amends the DFARS to remove DFARS clause 252.215-7000, Pricing Adjustments, the clause prescription, and associated DFARS cross-references. The DFARS clause is included in solicitations and contracts that contain the FAR clause 52.215-11, Price Reduction for Defective Certified Cost or Pricing Data-Modifications, FAR 52.215-12, Subcontractor Certified Cost or Pricing Data, or FAR 52.215-13, Subcontractor Certified Cost or Pricing Data-Modifications. DFARS clause 252.215-7000 defines the term "pricing adjustment" as the aggregate increases and/or decreases in cost plus applicable profits. This term is adequately defined in the associated FAR clauses and this DFARS clause can be removed. The removal of this DFARS clause supports a recommendation from the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force established pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13777, "Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda."
