Talk:Defense Contract Management Agency
22 Feb 06: Re-wrote section, removing point of view issues. Still need additional historical data.
The article reads that "...save for specific exceptions detailed in DFARS, all DoD activities are required to delegate contract administration functions to DCMA". This should be clarified to read that "save for specific exceptions detailed in regulations, the DoD Components normally delegate a wide variety of contract administration and support services to DCMA". The FAR states that "The contracting officer may retain any of the (A-list) functions, except those  in paragraphs (a)(5), (a)(9), (a)(11) and (a)(12)". The DFARS does not over-rule or contradict the FAR in this area, and details only that "Contracts" shall be delegated for administration with 18 exceptions (48 CFR subparagraph 242.202(a)(i)), and the regulations further state that only a few "Functions" must be delegated (48 CFR paragraph 42.302(a) 2nd sentance and subparagraph 242.302(a)(S-71)) - Thus allowing all of the rest of the (A-list & B-list) functions to be fully-retained by the DoD Components. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 21:53, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
Plain Language Writing Act
Recommend making some plain language edits for the audience: Change CAS services to plain "contract administration" or contract management; The CAS process to "contract management"; Perform/performing CAS to "administer contracts" or manage contracts.
And, maybe change the location in northern Virginia to Alexandria.
