SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DoD policies on contract financing are 
described in Part 32 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and 
Part 232 of the Defense FAR Supplement. These policies cover a variety 
of contract finance issues, including non-commercial item purchase 
financing; commercial item purchase financing; loan guarantees for 
defense production; advance payments for noncommercial items; progress 
payments based on costs; contract debts; contract funding; assignment 
of claims; prompt payment; performance-based payments; electronic funds 
transfer; electronic submission and processing of payment requests; and 
levies on contract payments.
    DoD is interested in receiving public input on these contract 
financing policies, particularly with regard to those that are 
considered to be especially effective or ineffective, along with 
supporting rationale.
