QUALITY CONTROL OF AVIATION CRITICAL SAFETY ITEMS (CSI) AND RELATED SERVICES - FINAL RULE DFARS & Implements Section 802, FY 2004 DoD Authorization Act. Section 802 requires DoD to develop a quality control policy for the procurement of aviation (CSI) and the modification, repair, and overhaul of those items. Responsibilities of the head of the design control activity-- –identifying items that meet aviation CSI criteria; –approving qualification requirements IAW procedures established by the design control activity; and –qualifying and identifying aviation CSI suppliers and products. Approval authority for accepting nonconforming aviation CSI is the head of the design control activity. Acceptance of minor nonconforming aviation CSI may be delegated as determined appropriate by the design control activity.
NOTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR CRITICAL SAFETY ITEMS (CSI) - PROPOSED RULE DFARS , Notification of potential safety issues Implements Section 8143, FY 2004 DoD Appropriations Act. Section 8143 requires DoD to examine standards and procedures to ensure timely notification to the Government and contractors regarding safety issues, including defective parts. Contains a new notification clause for use in contracts for-- –replenishment parts identified as CSI; –systems and subsystems, assemblies, and subassemblies integral to a system; or –repair, maintenance, logistics support, or overhaul services for systems and subsystems, assemblies, and subassemblies integral to a system.

ASSIGNMENT OF CONTRACT ADMINISTRATION – EXCEPTION FOR DEFENSE ENERGY SUPPORT CENTER - FINAL RULE DFARS , Assignment of contract administration DFARS (a)(i) provides exceptions to the requirement that DoD activities shall not retain any contract for administration that requires performance of any contract administration function at or near contractor facilities.

This was done to eliminate duplication of effort in bulk fuel quality management.
