Federal Acquisition Regulation
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) is the principal set of rules in the Federal Acquisition Regulation System. This system consists of sets of regulations issued by agencies of the Federal government of the United States to govern what is called the "acquisition process," which is the process through which the government purchases ("acquires") goods and services. That process consists of three phases:(1) need recognition and acquisition planning,(2) contract formation, and (3) contract administration. The FAR System regulates the activities of government personnel in carrying out that process. It does not regulate the purchasing activities of private sector firms, except to the extent that parts of it are incorporated into government solicitations and contracts by reference.
The FAR is codified in Title 48 of the United States Code of Federal Regulations. It is issued pursuant to the Office of Federal Procurement Policy Act of 1974 (Pub. L. 93-400 and Title 41 of the United States Code), Chapter 7. Statutory authority to issue and maintain the FAR resides with the Secretary of Defense, the Administrator of General Services, and the Administrator, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 41 U.S.C. 421(c)(1), subject to the approval of the Administrator of Federal Procurement Policy, 41 U.S.C. 405.
The FAR and its agency supplements are said by the Federal courts to have "the force and effect of law," see Davies Precision Machining, Inc. v. U.S., 35 Fed. Cl. 651 (1995). Nearly all government agencies are required to comply with the FAR. However, some agencies are exempt (e.g., the United States Postal Service, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Federal Aviation Administration, and the Bonneville Power Administration); in those cases, the agency promulgates its own specific procurement rules.

Why then does AFRL go to the Turning Stone? It really should be Utica/Rome vs. The Turning Stone. AFRL should be going to tax paying businesses in Oneida County and not just Rome. The Turning Stone is farther away then venues such as the Hotel Utica (or other venues in Utica)...

1.1 million dollars to train 26 people in 10 weeks, how are they spending this money????

How much goes for catering food?

House Report 110-652 - DUNCAN HUNTER NATIONAL DEFENSE AUTHORIZATION ACT FOR FISCAL YEAR 2009

----------

ITEMS OF SPECIAL INTEREST

Cyber boot camp

The budget request contained $109.5 million in PE 62702F for work to develop better command, control, and communications systems within the Air Force, including $1.1 million to support the Advanced Course in Engineering (ACE) Cyber Boot Camp summer program for the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC).

The committee applauds the efforts at the Air Force Research Laboratory Rome Research Site (AFRL/RRS) to develop educational curriculum to develop the future workforce of cyber operations experts. The mission of the ACE is to develop ROTC cadets into cyber officers and represents the only cyber education offered by the Department of Defense for ROTC cadets. ACE is a 10-week summer program consisting of classes, on-the-job mentoring, and officer development that targets the top students in computer-related disciplines, and teaches them to become original thinkers, problem solvers, and technical leaders. The committee recognizes that this program is vital to ensuring a robust information technology workforce that is capable of handling current and future cyber threats to our systems. The committee believes the ACE cyber boot camp should be expanded beyond the Air Force to include ROTC cadets from the other military services.

The committee recommends $110.5 million, an increase of $1.0 million, in PE 62702F for AFRL/RRS to support the expansion of the ACE Cyber Boot curriculum to other service ROTC participants, and to provide for additional 10-week courses to accommodate this expansion.

Is it true that Rome labs has awarded non-competitive contracts for food service to the Beeches? I've recently heard that for the last 7 years that the beeches was given $100K contract every year to cater breakfast and lunch to lab employees.
The story I heard is that the contract is awarded to Symantec corporation and ITT industries. Then ITT Industries in Rome subcontracts to the beeches to prepare breakfast and lunch to Laboratory employees every summer. No other bids were taken from any other restaurant or catering service. It always goes to the Beeches.
On top of that, Rome lab gets federal and NY state funding for the contract it awards to Symantec.
Wow, somone is making a lot of money of this deal. It costs $43,000 to train a ROTC cadet for 10 weeks while it costs $14,000 to educate a child for one year in a public school.

Just read in the Times Union the joe bruno situation has opened the door for more FBI investigations into new york state legislators, improprieties. Aparently they feel corruption is widespread in ny politics, and ny is unable to police itself, now the federals are needed to clean up the garbage.

Lived in Rome now Utica. Loved Rome, Utica not so much. Many Romans have a belief Utica is out to get them so they stick together. Even if that means their local State leader is shakey they will re-elect her. Does anyone think the Beeches win 95% of contracts with Turning Stone has nothing to do with Roann's position in State goverment? Think of the good Turning Stone could do if they sent these special events to many different Resturants to help them through tough times.

It's pretty normal for a bigger group to be able to get a discount. Now go look up how many kids are in the NYS school system and how many ROTC cadets are being trained.

Let me tell you all something, I don't understand politics at all, but this one thing I DO know about Assembly Woman Destito. When she is handed a report of misconduct any where in Rome, NY, she Will take it on immediately to remedy the bad situation, such as: bad business owners, bad landlords, criminal activity, etc. I know that she is right on because she got rid of that strip joint/tv show here in Rome several years ago at my request after my little grandaughter turned on their public x rated tv show to the private parts of a female body! Bravo AssemblyWoman Destito, You ARE MY HERO! ps - you better keep her in your prayers if you know what's good for you.:)
