Item I--EPEAT Items (FAR Case 2013-016) (Interim)
This interim rule implements changes in the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT(TM))-registry requirements at FAR subpart 23.7. The FAR requirement to procure EPEAT(TM)-registered products is revised to incorporate the revised standard applicable to personal computer products and to add the standards for imaging equipment and televisions.
Item II--Contracting With Women-Owned Small Business Concerns (FAR Case 2013-010)
This final rule adopts as final, without change, an interim rule that amended FAR 19.1505 to remove the dollar limitation for set-asides for economically disadvantaged women-owned small business (EDWOSB) concerns or women-owned small business (WOSB) concerns eligible under the Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Program. The interim rule implemented section 1697 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013, Public Law 112-239, which amended section 8(m) of the Small Business Act, (15 U.S.C. 637(m)).
As a result of this change, contracting officers may set aside acquisitions for competition restricted to EDWOSB concerns or WOSB concerns eligible under the WOSB Program at any dollar level above the micro-purchase threshold, provided the other requirements for a set-aside under the WOSB Program are met.
Item III--Limitation on Allowable Government Contractor Compensation Costs (FAR Case 2014-012) (Interim)
This interim rule amends the FAR to implement section 702 of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013. In accordance with section 702, this interim rule revises the allowable cost limit relative to the compensation of contractor and subcontractor employees. In the current FAR, this limitation on the allowability of compensation is an amount set annually by the
