Where a clause to be used in a contract represents a deviation from this subchapter, a date will not be shown. [25 F.R. 14079, Dec. 31, 1960) $ 1.104 Content of subchapter.

This subchapter will contain policies and procedures relating to the procurement of supplies and services and is designed to achieve maximum uniformity throughout the Department of Defense. Hence, implementation of the subchapter by and within the Military Departments, the Defense Supply Agency, and the Defense Communications Agency shall be only in accordance with $ 1.108. This subchapter will be amended, from time to time, to set forth improved procedures which reduce contract preparation time, simplify and standardize contract forms within the Department of Defense, and improve the contracting process by standardizing procedures and instructions. In this connection, personnel at all levels, particularly the contracting level are encouraged to submit through appropriate channels suggestions, based on operating experience, to reduce administrative burden, simplify contract forms and procedures, and otherwise accomplish the foregoing objectives. (29 F.R. 6911, May 27, 1964) $ 1.105 Amendment of subchapter.

This subchapter may be amended from time to time by the issuance of "Revisions," by the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Installations and Logistics) after coordination with the Secretaries of the Army, Navy, and Air Force and the Director of the Defense Supply Agency. Unless otherwise directed in a particular case by the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Installations and Logistics), proposed amendments shall be submitted to the Armed Services Procurement Regulation Committee. Proposals for amendments originating within the Military Departments shall be submitted to the Chairman of the Armed Services Procurement Regulation Committee by the Departmental members of the Committee. However, where unu

sual circumstances warrant, the Secretaries may submit proposals for amendments to the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Installations and Logistics). [26 F.R. 5296, June 14, 1961, as amended at 27 F.R. 11643, Nov. 27, 1962) § 1.106 Other Department of Defense

(b) The purposes of the Defense Procurement Circular are:

(1) To promulgate as rapidly as possible selected material revising this subchapter, in advance of the revision of this subchapter;

(2) To disseminate material applicable to procurement which is not suitable for insertion in this subchapter, but which may have the effect of a directive to, or be of importance and interest to its recipients; and

(3) To supplement this subchapter, as may be necessary in order to reduce the size and frequency of issue of subsidiary Departmental procurement instructions.

(c) Each Defense Procurement Circular shall be canceled six months from its effective date unless sooner superseded by coverage of the subject in a
