NOTE: This message has changed from an earlier version. Please note changes to batch quote fields 59, 60 (new fields added) and 63 (correction to referenced field) with this update.
On the evening of 25 October, 2016, changes will be made to DIBBS to make it in compliance with the Buy American/Free Trade Act and to add a qualification question for Qualified Supplier List Dealers.
For the Buy American/Free Trade Act, we are updating the list of countries that are considered to be a Qualified Country to the drop down. Also, we are incorporating ALT IV of DFARS 252.225-7035, which applies to solicitations estimated to be between the current value of $77,533 and $100,000.
Under Qualification Requirements (FAR 9.203), when a vendor quotes as a Qualified Supplier List Dealer, they will now be asked a new question to provide the CAGE code of the Source of Supply.
See the attached for the batch quoting format instructions. All changes are highlighted in yellow. Note: not only have the selections changed under Buy American/Free Trade, but some country codes that represent the countries have changed. Please take time to review and understand these changes.
