SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    This rule proposes revisions to DFARS Part 225, Foreign 
Acquisition, and associated provisions and clauses. The rule--
    [sbull] Provides streamlined procedures for evaluating foreign 
offers when acquiring supplies, and adds procedures for evaluating 
foreign offers in acquisitions in which price is not the determining 
factor.
    [sbull] Changes the definition of ``qualifying country end 
product'' to permit the qualifying country manufacturing the product to 
use components from any other qualifying country.
    [sbull] Lowers the required approval levels for determinations of 
nonavailability under the Buy American Act.
    [sbull] Lowers the required approval levels for individual public 
interest determinations for acquisition of end products from qualifying 
countries.
    [sbull] Provides that the Government will evaluate duty only if it 
is to be paid. Except for qualifying country supplies or eligible end 
products, the contractor will request duty-free entry only on foreign 
supplies for which the contractor estimates that duty will exceed $200 
per unit (end product or component). One duty-free entry clause 
replaces five existing clauses.
    [sbull] Makes use of the clause pertaining to Waiver of United 
Kingdom Levies optional for acquisitions not expected to exceed the 
simplified acquisition threshold.
    [sbull] Eliminates the requirement for a contractor to represent 
that it will comply with all laws, decrees, labor standards, and 
regulations of the foreign country in which the contract will be 
performed.
    [sbull] Moves restrictions on contracting with firms owned or 
controlled by the government of a terrorist country or other foreign 
governments from Part 209, Contractor Responsibility, to Part 225, 
Foreign Acquisition.
    [sbull] Deletes obsolete text and clauses relating to outdated 
appropriations act restrictions, resulting in the elimination of four 
clauses.
    [sbull] Incorporates the DFARS changes proposed under Case 2002-
D008, Trade Agreements Act-Exception for U.S.-Made End Products, 
published at 67 FR 49278 on July 30, 2002.
    Because of the complexity of the Buy American Act and the trade 
agreements, DoD is preparing an on-line training module to assist in 
understanding DFARS Part 225. The goal is to provide sufficient 
explanatory material and practical examples to clarify the main issues.
    This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review 
under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The proposed rule is not expected to have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of 
the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., because most of 
the changes in the rule merely simplify and clarify existing policy and 
procedures. Other changes, such as the revised definition of 
``qualifying country end product'' primarily affect foreign firms, 
which, by definition, do not qualify as small entities within the 
meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The changes in procedures 
for evaluation of duty will result in a paperwork burden reduction for 
both large and small businesses, but the economic impact will not be 
significant. Therefore, DoD has not prepared an initial regulatory 
flexibility analysis. DoD invites comments from small businesses and 
other interested parties. DoD also will consider comments from small 
entities concerning the affected DFARS subparts in accordance with 5 
U.S.C. 610. Such comments should be submitted separately and should 
cite DFARS Case 2002-D009.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

    This rule does not impose any new information collection 
requirements that require the approval of the Office of Management and 
Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq. The information collection 
requirements in the rule are currently approved by the Office of 
Management and Budget under Control Numbers 0704-0229 and 0704-0187. 
Elimination of the provision at 252.225-7003, Information for Duty-Free 
Entry Evaluation, will result in a reduction of 21,451 hours in 
estimated annual burden.

225.104 Nonavailable articles.
225.105 Determining reasonableness of cost.
225.170 Solicitations.


225.101  General.

    (a) For DoD, the following two-part test determines whether a 
manufactured end product is a domestic end product:
    (i) The end product is manufactured in the United States; and
    (ii) The cost of its U.S. and qualifying country components exceeds 
50 percent of the cost of all its components. This test is applied to 
end products only and not to individual components.
    (c) Additional exceptions that allow the purchase of foreign end 
products are listed at 225.103.


225.103  Exceptions.

    (a)(i)(A) Public interest exceptions for certain countries are in 
225.872.
    (B) For procurements subject to the Trade Agreements Act, the Under 
Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics) has 
determined that it is inconsistent with the public interest to apply 
the Buy American Act to end products that are substantially transformed 
in the United States.
    (ii)(A) Normally, use the evaluation procedures in Subpart 225.5, 
but

[[Page 62592]]

consider recommending a public interest exception if the purposes of 
the Buy American Act are not served, or in order to meet a need set 
forth in 10 U.S.C. 2533. For example, a public interest exception may 
be appropriate--
    (1) If accepting the low domestic offer will involve substantial 
foreign expenditures, or accepting the low foreign offer will involve 
substantial domestic expenditures;
    (2) To ensure access to advanced state-of-the-art commercial 
technology; or
    (3) To maintain the same source of supply for spare and replacement 
parts (also see paragraph (b)(iii)(B) of this section)--
    (i) For an end item that qualifies as a domestic end product; or
    (ii) In order not to impair integration of the military and 
commercial industrial base.
    (B) Except as provided in 225.872-4(b), process a determination for 
a public interest exception after consideration of the factors in 10 
U.S.C. 2533--
    (1) At a level above the contracting officer for acquisitions 
valued at $100,000 or less;
    (2) By the head of the contracting activity for acquisitions valued 
at more than $100,000 but less than $1,000,000; or
    (3) By the agency head for acquisitions valued at $1,000,000 or 
more.
    (b)(i) A determination that an article, material, or supply is not 
reasonably available is required when domestic offers are insufficient 
to meet the requirement and award is to be made on other than a 
qualifying country or eligible end product.
    (ii) Except as provided in FAR 25.103(b)(3), the determination 
shall be approved--
    (A) At a level above the contracting officer, if the acquisition is 
valued at $100,000 or less;
    (B) By the chief of the contracting office if the acquisition is 
valued at more than $100,000 but less than $1,000,000; or
    (C) By the head of the contracting activity or immediate deputy if 
the acquisition is valued at $1,000,000 or more.
    (iii) DoD has determined that the following articles are not 
reasonably available from domestic sources:
    (A) End products or components listed in 225.104(a).
    (B) Spare or replacement parts that must be acquired from the 
original foreign manufacturer or supplier.
    (C) Foreign drugs acquired by the Defense Supply Center, 
Philadelphia, when the Director, Pharmaceuticals Group, Directorate of 
Medical Materiel, determines that only the requested foreign drug will 
fulfill the requirements.
    (iv) Under coordinated acquisition (see subpart 208.70), the 
determination is the responsibility of the requiring department when 
the requiring department specifies acquisition of a foreign end 
product.
    (c) The cost of a domestic end product is unreasonable if it is not 
the low evaluated offer when evaluated under subpart 225.5.


225.104  Nonavailable articles.

    (a) DoD has determined that the following articles also are 
nonavailable in accordance with FAR 25.103(b):
    (i) Aluminum clad steel wire.
    (ii) Sperm oil.


225.105  Determining reasonableness of cost.

    (b) Use an evaluation factor of 50 percent instead of the factors 
specified in FAR 25.105(b).


225.170  Solicitations.

    For oral solicitations, inform prospective quoters that only 
domestic and qualifying country end products are acceptable unless--
    (1) Other foreign end products are excepted either on a blanket or 
an individual basis; or
    (2) The price of another foreign end product is the low offer under 
the evaluation procedures in Subpart 225.5.


225.202  [Amended]

    11. Section 225.202 is amended in paragraph (a)(2) as follows:
    a. In the first sentence, by removing the parenthetical ``(iii)''; 
and
    b. In the second sentence, by removing ``must'' and adding in its 
place ``shall''.
    12. Section 225.401 is revised to read as follows:


225.401  Exceptions.

    (a)(2) If a department or agency considers an individual 
acquisition of a product to be indispensable for national security or 
national defense purposes and appropriate for exclusion from the 
provisions of FAR Subpart 25.4, it may submit a request with supporting 
rationale to the Director of Defense Procurement (OUSD (AT&L) DP). 
Approval by OUSD (AT&L) DP is not required if--
    (A) Purchase from foreign sources is restricted by statute (see 
Subpart 225.70);
    (B) Another exception in FAR 25.401 applies to the acquisition; or
    (C) Competition from foreign sources is restricted under Subpart 
225.71.
    13. Section 225.401-70 is amended in the introductory text by 
revising the last sentence to read as follows:


225.401-70  Products subject to trade agreement acts.

    * * * The following list indicates those products that are eligible 
for designated and NAFTA countries, but are not eligible for Caribbean 
Basin countries.
* * * * *
    14. Sections 225.402 and 225.403 are revised to read as follows:


225.402  General.

    To estimate the value of the acquisition, use the total estimated 
value of end products subject to trade agreement acts (see 225.401-70).


225.403  Trade Agreements Act.

    (c) For acquisitions subject to the Trade Agreements Act, acquire 
only U.S.-made, qualifying country, or eligible end products unless--
    (i) The contracting officer determines that offers of U.S.-made, 
qualifying country, or eligible products from responsive, responsible 
offerors are either--
    (A) Not received; or
    (B) Insufficient to fill the Government's requirements. In this 
case, accept all responsive, responsible offers of U.S.-made, 
qualifying country, and eligible products before accepting any other 
offers; or
    (ii) A national interest waiver under 19 U.S.C. 2512(b)(2) is 
granted on a case-by-case basis. Except as delegated in paragraphs 
(c)(i)(A) and (B) of this section, submit any request for a national 
interest waiver to the Director of Defense Procurement in accordance 
with department or agency procedures. Include supporting rationale with 
the request.
    (A) The head of the contracting activity may approve a national 
interest waiver for a purchase by an overseas purchasing activity, if 
the waiver is supported by a written statement from the requiring 
activity that the products being acquired are critical for the support 
of U.S. forces stationed abroad.
    (B) The Commander or Director, Defense Energy Support Center, may 
approve national interest waivers for purchases of fuel for use by U.S. 
forces overseas.
    15. Subpart 225.5 is revised to read as follows:
Subpart 225.5--Evaluating Foreign Offers--Supply Contracts
Sec.
225.502 Application.
225.503 Group offers.
225.504 Evaluation examples.

[[Page 62593]]

225.502  Application.

    (b) Use the following procedures instead of the procedures in FAR 
25.502(b) for acquisitions subject to the Trade Agreements Act:
    (i) Consider only offers of U.S.-made, qualifying country, or 
eligible end products, except as permitted by 225.403.
    (ii) If price is the determining factor, award on the low offer.
    (c) Use the following procedures instead of the procedures in FAR 
25.502(c) for acquisitions subject to the Buy American Act or the 
Balance of Payments Program:
    (i)(A) If the acquisition is subject only to the Buy American Act 
or the Balance of Payments Program, then only qualifying country end 
products are exempt from application of the Buy American Act or Balance 
of Payments Program evaluation factor.
    (B) If the acquisition is also subject to NAFTA, then NAFTA country 
end products are also exempt from application of the Buy American Act 
or Balance of Payments Program evaluation factor.
    (C) If the acquisition is also subject to the Trade Agreements Act, 
then designated country end products and Caribbean Basin Country end 
products are also exempt from application of the Buy American Act or 
Balance of Payments Program evaluation factor.
    (ii) If price is the determining factor, use the following 
procedures:
    (A) If the low offer is a domestic offer, award on that offer.
    (B) If there are no domestic offers, award on the low offer (see 
example in 225.504(1)).
    (C) If the low offer is a foreign offer that is exempt from 
application of the Buy American Act or Balance of Payments Program 
evaluation factor, award on that offer. (If the low offer is a 
qualifying country offer from a country listed at 225.872-1(b) and the 
Trade Agreements Act does not apply, execute a determination in 
accordance with 225.872-4.)
    (D) If the low offer is a foreign offer that is not exempt from 
application of the Buy American Act or Balance of Payments Program 
evaluation factor, and there is another foreign offer that is exempt, 
and is lower than the lowest domestic offer, award on the low foreign 
offer (see example in 225.504(2)).
    (E) Otherwise, apply the 50 percent evaluation factor to the low 
foreign offer.
    (1) If the price of the low domestic offer is less than the 
evaluated price of the low foreign offer, award on the low domestic 
offer (see example in 225.504(3)).
    (2) If the evaluated price of the low foreign offer remains less 
than the low domestic offer, award on the low foreign offer (see 
example in 225.504(4)).
    (iii) If price is not the determining factor, use the following 
procedures:
    (A) If there are domestic offers, apply the 50 percent Buy American 
Act or Balance of Payments Program evaluation factor to all foreign 
offers unless an exemption applies.
    (B) Evaluate in accordance with the criteria of the solicitation.
    (C) If these procedures will not result in award on a domestic 
offer, reevaluate offers without the 50 percent factor. If this will 
result in award on an offer to which the Buy American Act or Balance of 
Payments Program applies, but evaluation in accordance with paragraph 
(c)(ii) of this section would result in award on a domestic offer, 
proceed with award only after execution of a determination in 
accordance with 225.103(a)(ii)(B), that domestic preference would be 
inconsistent with the public interest.


225.503  Group offers.

    Evaluate group offers in accordance with FAR 25.503, but apply the 
evaluation procedures of 225.502.


225.504  Evaluation examples.

    The following examples illustrate the evaluation procedures in 
225.502(c)(ii). The examples assume that the contracting officer has 
eliminated all offers that are unacceptable for reasons other than 
price or a trade agreement and that price is the determining factor in 
contract award. The same evaluation procedures and the 50 percent 
evaluation factor apply regardless of whether the acquisition is 
subject to the Buy American Act (BAA) or the Balance of Payments 
Program (BOPP).
    (1) Example 1.

Offer A $945,000 Foreign offer subject to BAA/BOPP
Offer B $950,000 Foreign offer exempt from BAA/BOPP

    Since no domestic offers are received, do not apply the 
evaluation factor. Award on Offer A.

    (2) Example 2.

Offer A $950,000 Domestic offer
Offer B $890,000 Foreign offer exempt from BAA/BOPP
Offer C $880,000 Foreign offer subject to BAA/BOPP

    Since the exempt foreign offer is lower than the domestic offer, 
do not apply the evaluation factor. Award on Offer C.

    (3) Example 3.

Offer A $9,100 Foreign offer exempt from BAA/BOPP
Offer B $8,900 Domestic offer
Offer C $6,000 Foreign offer subject to BAA/BOPP

    Since the domestic offer is lower than the exempt foreign offer, 
apply the 50 percent evaluation factor to Offer C. This results in 
an evaluated price of $9,000 for Offer C. Award on Offer B.

    (4) Example 4.

Offer A $910,000 Foreign offer exempt from BAA/BOPP
Offer B $890,000 Domestic offer
Offer C $590,000 Foreign offer subject to BAA/BOPP

    Since the domestic offer is lower than the exempt foreign offer, 
apply the 50 percent evaluation factor to Offer C. This results in 
an evaluated price of $885,000 for Offer C. Award on Offer C.

    16. Subpart 225.6 is added to read as follows:

Subpart 225.6--Trade Sanctions

Sec.
225.670 Secondary Arab boycott of Israel.
225.670-1 Restriction.
225.670-2 Procedures.
225.670-3 Exceptions.
225.670-4 Waivers.


225.670  Secondary Arab boycott of Israel.


225.670-1  Restriction.

    In accordance with 10 U.S.C. 2410i, do not enter into a contract 
with a foreign entity unless it has certified that it does not comply 
with the secondary Arab boycott of Israel.


225.670-2  Procedures.

225.872-1  General.

    (a) As a result of memoranda of understanding and other

public interest to apply restrictions of the Buy American Act or the 
Balance of Payments Program to the acquisition of defense equipment 
that is mined, produced, or manufactured in any of the following 
countries (referred to in this part as ``qualifying countries''):

Australia
Belgium
Canada
Denmark
Egypt
Federal Republic of Germany
France
Greece
Israel
Italy
Luxembourg
Netherlands
Norway
Portugal
Spain
Switzerland
Turkey
United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

    (b) Individual acquisitions for products of the following 
qualifying countries may, on a purchase-by-purchase basis (see 225.872-
4), be exempted from application of the Buy American Act and the 
Balance of Payments Program as inconsistent with the public interest'

Austria
Finland
Sweden

    (c) The determination in paragraph (a) of this subsection does not 
limit the authority of the Secretary concerned to restrict acquisitions 
to domestic sources or reject an otherwise acceptable offer from a 
qualifying country source when considered necessary for national 
defense reasons.


225.872-2  Applicability.

    (a) This section applies to all acquisitions of supplies except 
those restricted by--
    (1) U.S. National Disclosure Policy, DoDD 5230.11, Disclosure of 
Classified Military Information to Foreign Governments and 
International Organizations;
    (2) U.S. defense mobilization base requirements purchased under the 
authority of FAR 6.302-3(a)(2)(i) except for quantities in excess of 
that required to maintain the defense mobilization base. This 
restriction does not apply to Canadian planned producers.
    (i) Review individual solicitations to determine whether this 
restriction applies.
    (ii) Information concerning restricted items may be obtained from 
the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Industrial Affairs);
    (3) Other U.S. laws or regulations (e.g., the annual DoD 
appropriations act); and
    (4) U.S. industrial security requirements.
    (b) This section does not apply to construction contracts.


225.872-3  Solicitation procedures.

    (a) Include qualifying country sources on solicitation mailing 
lists upon their request (see FAR 14.205).
    (b) Except for items developed under the U.S./Canadian Development 
Sharing Program, use the criteria for soliciting and awarding contracts 
to small business concerns under FAR part 19 without regard to whether 
there are potential qualifying country sources for the end product. Do 
not consider an offer of a qualifying country end product if the 
solicitation is identified for the exclusive participation of small 
business concerns.
    (c) Send solicitations directly to qualifying country sources. 
Solicit Canadian sources through the Canadian Commercial Corporation in 
accordance with 225.870.
    (d) Use international air mail if solicitation destinations are 
outside the United States and security classification permits such use.
    (e) If unusual technical or security requirements preclude the 
acquisition of otherwise acceptable defense equipment from qualifying 
country sources, review the need for such requirements. Do not impose 
unusual technical or security requirements solely for the purpose of 
precluding the acquisition of defense equipment from qualifying 
countries.
    (f) Do not automatically exclude qualifying country sources from 
submitting offers because their supplies have not been tested and 
evaluated by the department or agency.
    (1) Consider the adequacy of qualifying country service testing on 
a case-by-case basis. Departments or agencies that must limit 
solicitations to sources whose items have been tested and evaluated by 
the department or agency shall consider supplies from qualifying 
country sources that have been tested and accepted by the qualifying 
country for service use.
    (2) The department or agency may perform a confirmatory test, if 
necessary.
    (3) Apply U.S. test and evaluation standards, policies, and 
procedures when the department or agency decides that confirmatory 
tests of qualifying country end products are necessary.
    (4) If it appears that these provisions might adversely delay 
service programs, obtain the concurrence of the Under Secretary of 
Defense (Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics), before excluding the 
qualifying country source from consideration.
    (g) Permit industry representatives from a qualifying country to 
attend symposia, program briefings, prebid conferences (see FAR 14.207 
and 15.201(c)), and similar meetings that address U.S. defense 
equipment needs and requirements. When practical, structure these 
meetings to allow attendance by representatives of qualifying country 
concerns.


225.872-4  Individual determinations.

    (a) If the offer of an end product from a qualifying country source 
listed in 225.872-1(b), as evaluated, is low or otherwise eligible for 
award, prepare a determination and findings exempting the acquisition 
from the Buy American Act and Balance of Payments Program as 
inconsistent with the public interest, unless another exception such as 
the Trade Agreements Act applies.

[[Page 62598]]

    (b) Obtain signature of the determination and findings--
    (1) At a level above the contracting officer, if the acquisition is 
valued at $100,000 or less; or
    (2) By the chief of the contracting office, if the acquisition is 
valued at more than $100,000.
    (c) Prepare the determination and findings substantially as 
follows:

Service or Agency

Exemption of the Buy American Act and Balance of Payments Program

Determination and Findings

    Upon the basis of the following findings and determination which 
I hereby make in accordance with the provisions of FAR 25.103(a), 
the acquisition of a qualifying country end product may be made as 
follows:

Findings

    1. The (contracting office) proposes to purchase under contract 
number --------, (describe item) mined, produced, or manufactured in 
(qualifying country of origin). The total estimated cost of this 
acquisition is --------.
    2. The United States Government and the Government of -------- 
have agreed to remove barriers to procurement at the prime and 
subcontract level for defense equipment produced in each other's 
countries insofar as laws and regulations permit.
    3. The agreement provides that the Department of Defense will 
evaluate competitive offers of qualifying country end products 
mined, produced, or manufactured in (qualifying country) without 
imposing any price differential under the Buy American Act or 
Balance of Payments Program and without taking applicable U.S. 
customs and duties into consideration so that such items may better 
compete for sales of defense equipment to the Department of Defense. 
In addition, the Agreement stipulates that acquisitions of such 
items shall fully satisfy Department of Defense requirements for 
performance, quality, and delivery and shall cost the Department of 
Defense no more than would comparable U.S. source or other foreign 
source defense equipment eligible for award.
    4. To achieve the foregoing objectives, the solicitation

225.872-5  Contract administration.

    (a) Arrangements exist with some qualifying countries to provide 
reciprocal contract administration services. Some arrangements are at 
no cost to either government. To determine whether such an arrangement 
has been negotiated and what contract administration functions are 
covered, contact the Deputy Director of Defense Procurement (Foreign 
Contracting), ((703) 697-9351/2/3, DSN 227-9351/2/3).
    (b) When contract administration services are required on contracts 
to be performed in qualifying countries, direct the request to the 
cognizant activity listed in the Federal Directory of Contract 
Administration Services. The cognizant activity also will arrange 
contract administration services for DoD subcontracts that qualifying 
country sources place in the United States.
    (c) The contract administration activity receiving a delegation 
shall determine whether any portions of the delegation are covered by 
memoranda of understanding annexes and, if so, shall delegate those 
functions to the appropriate organization in the qualifying country's 
government.
    (d) Information on quality assurance delegations to foreign 
governments is in subpart 246.4, Government Contract Quality Assurance.


225.872-6  Audit.

    (a) Memoranda of understanding with some qualifying countries 
contain annexes that provide for reciprocal ``no-cost'' audits of 
contracts and subcontracts (pre- and post-award).
    (b) To determine if such an annex is applicable to a particular 
qualifying country, contact the Deputy Director of Defense Procurement 
(Foreign Contracting), ((703) 697-9351/2/3, DSN 227-9351/2/3).
    (c) Handle requests for audits in qualifying countries in

administrative contracting officer at the cognizant activity listed in 
Section 2B of the Federal Directory of Contract Administration 
Services. Send the request for audit from the United Kingdom directly 
to their Ministry of Defence.
    (2) Send an advance copy of the request to the focal point 
identified by the Deputy Director of Defense Procurement (Foreign 
Contracting).


225.872-7  Industrial security for qualifying countries.

    The required procedures for safeguarding classified defense 
information necessary for the performance of contracts awarded to 
qualifying country sources are in the DoD Industrial Security 
Regulation DoD 5220.22-R (implemented for the Army by AR 380-49; for 
the Navy by SECNAV Instruction 5510.1H; for the Air Force by AFI 31-
601; for the Defense Information Systems Agency by DCA Instruction 240-
110-8; and for the National Imagery and Mapping Agency by NIMA 
Instruction 5220.22).


225.872-8  Subcontracting with qualifying country sources.

    In reviewing contractor subcontracting procedures, the contracting 
officer shall ensure that the contract does not preclude qualifying 
country sources from competing for subcontracts, except when restricted 
by national security interest reasons, mobilization base 
considerations, or applicable U.S. laws or regulations (see the clause 
at 252.225-7002, Qualifying Country Sources as Subcontractors).


225.873  Waiver of United Kingdom commercial exploitation levies.


225.873-1  Policy.

    DoD and the Government of the United Kingdom (U.K.) have agreed to 
waive U.K. commercial exploitation levies and U.S. nonrecurring cost 
recoupment charges on a reciprocal basis. For U.K. levies to be waived, 
the offeror or contractor shall identify the levies and the contracting 
officer shall request a waiver before award of the contract or 
subcontract under which the levies are charged.


225.873-2  Procedures.

    (a) The Government of the U.K. shall approve waiver of U.K. levies. 
When an offeror or contractor identifies a levy included in an offered 
or contract price, the contracting officer shall provide written 
notification to the Defense Security Cooperation Agency, ATTN: PSD-PMD, 
1111 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, VA 22202-4306, telephone (703) 
601-3864. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency will request a waiver 
of the levy from the Government of the U.K. The notification shall 
include--

    (2) Prime contract number;
    (3) Description of item for which waiver is being sought;
    (4) Quantity being acquired; and
    (5) Amount of levy.
    (b) Waiver may occur after contract award. If levies are waived 
before contract award, evaluate the offer without the levy. If levies 
are identified but not waived before contract award, evaluate the offer 
inclusive of the levies.

consignee, generally the contractor or its agent (import broker) for 
shipments to other than a military installation, will file U.S. Customs 
Form 7501, 7501A, or 7506, with the District Director of Customs.

follows:


225.7003  Waiver of restrictions of 10 U.S.C. 2534.

    (a) Where provided for elsewhere in this subpart, the restrictions 
on certain foreign purchases under 10 U.S.C. 2534(a) may be waived as 
follows:
    (1)(i) The Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology, and 
Logistics), without power of delegation, may waive a restriction for a 
particular item for a particular foreign country upon determination 
that--
    (A) United States producers of the item would not be jeopardized by 
competition from a foreign country, and that country does not 
discriminate against defense items produced in the United States to a 
greater degree than the United States discriminates against defense 
items produced in that country; or
    (B) Application of the restriction would impede cooperative 
programs entered into between DoD and a foreign country, or would 
impede the reciprocal

[[Page 62601]]

procurement of defense items under a memorandum of understanding 
providing for reciprocal procurement of defense items under 225.872, 
and that country does not discriminate against defense items produced 
in the United States to a greater degree than the United States 
discriminates against defense items produced in that country.
    (ii) A notice of the determination to exercise the waiver authority 
shall be published in the Federal Register and submitted to the 
congressional defense committees at least 15 days before the effective 
date of the waiver.
    (iii) The effective period of the waiver shall not exceed 1 year.

waiver, provided adequate consideration is received to modify the 
contract, the waiver will be applied as directed or authorized in the 
waiver to--
    (A) Subcontracts entered into on or after the effective date of the 
waiver; and
    (B) Options for the procurement of items that are exercised after 
the effective date of the waiver, if the option prices are adjusted for 
any reason other than the application of the waiver.
    (2) The head of the contracting activity may waive a restriction on 
a case-by-case basis upon execution of a determination and findings 
that any of the following applies:
    (i) The restriction would cause unreasonable delays.
    (ii) Satisfactory quality items manufactured in the United States 
or Canada are not available.
    (iii) Application of the restriction would result in the existence 
of only one source for the item in the United States or Canada.
    (iv) Application of the restriction is not in the national security 
interests of the United States.
    (v) Application of the restriction would adversely affect a U.S. 
company.
    (3) A restriction is waived when it would cause unreasonable costs. 
The cost of an item of U.S. or Canadian origin is unreasonable if it 
exceeds 150 percent of the offered price, inclusive of duty, of items 
that are not of U.S. or Canadian origin.
    (b) In accordance with the provisions of paragraphs (a)(1)(i) 
through (a)(1)(iii) of this section, the Under Secretary of Defense

or Canada.
    (b) The requirement for buses is temporary in nature. For example,

Kingdom, which has been incorporated into the provision.
    (b) Use the clause at 252.225-7038, Restriction on Acquisition of 
Air Circuit Breakers, in solicitations and contracts requiring air 
circuit breakers for naval vessels unless--
    (1) An exception applies; or

a description of the method used to determine the competency of U.S. 
firms, and describe the cost or price analysis performed.
    (ii) Alternately, the determination may contain--

agency announcement, program research and development announcement, or 
other solicitation document without any technical guidance from the

Government contracts resulting from the LOAs prohibit the reimbursement 
of contingent fees as an allowable cost under the contract, unless the 
contractor identifies the payments and the foreign customer approves 
the payments in writing before contract award (see 225.7308(a)).

qualifying country, NAFTA country, or other foreign end products in 
the Buy American Act--North American Free Trade Agreement 
Implementation Act--Balance of Payments Program Certificate 
provision of the solicitation. If the Contractor certified in its
