This report sets forth our analysis of the 1,090 solicitation provisions, contract clauses, and alternates in the Federal Acquisition Regulation FAR and the DoD FAR Supplement DFARS. Contract clauses and solicitation provisions - hereafter simply called clauses - are a principal means of implementing the policies contained in the acquisition regulations. The report presents such information about the clauses as whether their origin is statutory or nonstatutory. Statutory is used here to embrace clauses based on law, Executive order, Office of Management and Budget OMB circular, Office of Federal Procurement Policy OFPP policy letter, other executive branch directive, or nonprocurement regulation published in the Code of Federal Regulations. The report also indicates whether the clause flows down to subcontractors and the tier to which flowdown occurs. In the rest of this report, we first describe Chapter 2 the coding conventions used to present our review and analysis of the clauses. This description is followed in Chapter 3 by the detailed report on the 451 clauses including alternates from the DFARS, presented in numerical order by DFARS part.
