Subpart 225.71 - OTHER RESTRICTIONS ON FOREIGN ACQUISITION
225.7100 Scope of subpart.
This subpart contains foreign product restrictions that are based on policies designed to protect the defense industrial base.
“Component” and “domestic manufacture,” as used in this subpart, are defined in the clause at 252.225-7025 , Restriction on Acquisition of Forgings.
When acquiring the following forging items, whether as end items or components, acquire items that are of domestic manufacture to the maximum extent practicable:
Ship propulsion shafts
Excludes service and landing craft shafts
Ring forgings for bull gears
All greater than 120 inches in diameter
The policy in 225.7102-1 does not apply to acquisitions—
(a) Using simplified acquisition procedures, unless the restricted item is the end item being purchased;
(b) Overseas for overseas use; or
(c) When the quantity acquired exceeds the amount needed to maintain the U.S. defense mobilization base (provided the excess quantity is an economical purchase quantity). The requirement for domestic manufacture does not apply to the quantity above that required to maintain the base, in which case, qualifying country sources may compete.
Upon request from a contractor, the contracting officer may waive the requirement for domestic manufacture of the items listed in 225.7102-1 .
225.7102-4 Contract clause.
Use the clause at 252.225-7025 , Restriction on Acquisition of Forgings, in solicitations and contracts, unless—
(a) The supplies being acquired do not contain any of the items listed in 225.7102-1 ; or
(b) An exception in 225.7102-2 applies. If an exception applies to only a portion of the acquisition, specify the excepted portion in the solicitation and contract.
