DFARS Compliance Challenges
The Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) establishes which countries can supply specialty metals to U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) contractors and subcontractors. Under DFARS, manufacturers must identify the source of specialty metals found in products or components sold to the U.S. military. Compliance is imperative to protecting existing contracts and maintaining market access, but it requires going deep in your supply chain to track countless parts throughout long product lifecycles. Manufacturers are often forced to dedicate internal resources to scoping products and contacting suppliers instead of high-value tasks.
Assent has helped hundreds of companies. We’re proud to work with the following organizations.
The Steep Price of DFARS Non-Compliance
Non-compliance with DFARS is often costly, resulting in loss of investors or contracts, breach of contract damages, fines, and reputational damage. In an already competitive business landscape, especially when dealing with lucrative government contracts, that means manufacturers are forced to spend time and resources collecting the data they need instead of performing revenue-generating activities.
Learn more about recent enforcement actions that demonstrate why proactive compliance is a business must.
What Does It Mean to Be DFARS Compliant?
Identifying specialty metals in products is a prerequisite for defense contracting with the U.S. federal government. Contractors or subcontractors that lack the deep supply chain insights needed to prove the origins of their specialty metals could lose contracts worth millions of dollars.Read the Blog
