These are FAR case Nos. 90-65 and 90-68. FAR case No. 90-65 is a proposal to amendment FAR section 42.1205. FAR case No. 90-68 is a proposal to amend FAR sections 22.1101 and 22.1103. The only change of substance is to FAR sections 22.1101 and 22.1103 to increase the threshold for application of Subpart 22.11 from $250. We have no objection to these proposed changes.

DIGEST: 1. General Accounting Office has no objection to Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) case No. 90-65, a proposal to amend FAR section 42.1205(a)(3), which concerns agreements to recognize a contractor's change of name, to delete a requirement to inform the government of the total dollar value and unpaid balance of all affected contracts. 2. General Accounting Office has no objection to Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) case No. 90-68, a proposal to amend FAR sections 22.1101 and 22.1103, delete the clause at FAR section 52.222-45, and revise the clause at FAR section 52.222-46.

Ms. Fayson:

This responds to your request for our comments on two proposed changes to the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR). These are FAR case Nos. 90-65 and 90-68.

FAR case No. 90-65 is a proposal to amendment FAR section 42.1205, which concerns agreements to recognize a contractor's change of name. The proposed change would amend section 42.1205(a)(3) to delete a requirement to inform the government of the total dollar value and unpaid balance of all affected contracts. The contractor still would be required to list all affected contracts, and the contracting officer could request information on contract values and unpaid balances if necessary.

FAR case No. 90-68 is a proposal to amend FAR sections 22.1101 and 22.1103, delete as unnecessary the clause at FAR section 52.222-45, and revise the clause at FAR section 52.222-46 concerning the evaluation of compensation for professional employees. The only change of substance is to FAR sections 22.1101 and 22.1103 to increase the threshold for application of Subpart 22.11 from $250,000 to $500,000 to account for inflation.

We have no objection to these proposed changes.
