AT&L released a commercial item and price reasonableness proposed rule in 2015, along with a Feb 4 2015 memo to contracting officers on commercial pricing. Both of these drew heavy criticism from AIA, Congress and others, as being out of step with what was in NDAA 2016 as well as being in conflict with internal OSD strategic planning, such as the 3rd Offset Strategy. Subsequently, both the proposed rule and memo to contracting officers have been withdrawn by OSD. With the enactment of NDAA 2016 which contained a significant number of commercial item pricing legislative actions, OSD has indicated it is working on the release of a revised proposed rule that will incorporate what is in NDAA 2016. In addition, OSD has also stated it will concurrently release (in draft for industry comment) an update to its commercial item guidebook that also will reflect the intent of NDAA 2016. AIA will take an active role in thoroughly reviewing and commenting on the release of the proposed rule and guidebook later this year upon release.
