Dating a contract

Her name was Stacey and she sat next to me in Geometry class.

It would probably be an understatement to say that dating is an important part of a teenager’s life.Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 42 identifies requirements for documenting contractor performance evaluations for systems, non-systems, architect-engineer, and construction acquisitions.The FAR also requires documenting additional contractor performance information in the Federal Awardee Performance & Integrity Information System (FAPIIS), including Terminations for Cause or Default (FAR Part 42), Defective Cost or Pricing Data (FAR Part 42), Information on Trafficking in Persons (FAR Part 22), Determinations of Non-Responsibility (FAR Part 9), Subcontractor Payment Issues (FAR Part 42), Administrative Agreements (FAR Part 9), and Do D Determination of Contractor Fault (Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) Part 209) and to make the information available in the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS).Contracts can also, confusingly, contain defined dates such as ‘commencement date’, ‘effective date’ or ‘start date’.These dates indicate when the contract or parts of it are due to have legal effect, if these dates are different to the contract and/or signature dates.
