SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

OFPP issued a notice of proposed rescission of these 22 Policy Letters that was published in the Federal Register on September 15, 1999 (64 FR 50108). No comments were received in response to the notice of proposed rescission.

As indicated in the Supplementary Information section of that notice, the rescission of these 22 Policy Letters reflects OFPP's conclusion that the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), as written, contains the current policy. Any policy embodied in the Policy Letters rescinded by this notice that is not reflected in the current FAR has been either superseded by subsequent statutory changes or is otherwise no longer necessary. Accordingly, OFPP Policy Letters 77-2, 78-2, 78-3, 78-4, 79-1, 79-2, 80-3, 80-6, 80-8, 81-1, 81-2, 82-1, 83-1, 83-2, 83-3, 84-1, 85-1, 89-1, 91-2, 91-4, 92-5, and 95-1 are hereby rescinded. No substantive FAR change is required by this action.

Eleven OFPP Policy Letters remain in effect. Copies of those Policy Letters can be obtained at the ARNet world wide website, http://www.arnet.gov/ Library/OFPP/PolicyLetters.
