It has been almost 10 years since the Federal Acquisition Regulations have gone through a major overhaul. Even then, the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations Supplement (DFARS) was not itself overhauled. In March 2003, the DoD announced that it has initiated a Defense Task Force for Regulation Transformation with a focus on the transformation of FAR and DFARS. The reported aim was to shorten DoD rule -making processes by 50% and to eliminate all unnecessary rules, with three phases in the released DFARS plan.
