What is the FAR ?
The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) is the primary regulation in the U.S. for use by all executive agencies in their acquisition of supplies and services with appropriated funds. The FAR also contains standard solicitation provisions and contract clauses and the various agency FAR supplements. The Department of Defense (DoD), GSA, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) jointly issue the FAR.
The main part of the FAR contains standard solicitation provisions and contract clauses. Solicitation provisions are certification requirements, notices, and instructions directed at firms that might be interested in competing for a specific contract. The FAR applies to acquisitions and acquisitions are conducted by the Federal Government. Therefore, the FAR only applies to federal employees conducting acquisitions, not to federal contractors.
