Abstract : Writing and maintaining of the FAR regulation will be a tough job as it has been with the DAR. The subjects covered will be complex and technical. All available capabilities should be brought to bear in the process if regulations which are fair, which can be administered economically and which effectively accomplish their purposes are to be achieved. Discussion of a few aspects of DAR 1-324 Warranties and DAR 1-330 Contractor Liability for Damage to Government Property and the related contract clauses shows the two coverages to be deficient in many aspects. A need particularly for more and earlier assistance from industry in the writing of regulations is indicated. The experience and expertise of industry personnel should supplement that of the government personnel who will be rotated in and out of the FAR Council. A document with the impact the FAR will have deserves full use of available talent. (Author)
