STATUS OF PROCUREMENT NOTICES (PNs) AND

PROCUREMENT INFORMATION CIRCULARS (PICs)

 

PURPOSE:  To provide a listing of PNs issued since May 10, 2007, and active and cancelled PICs.

 

BACKGROUND:  PNs are regulatory documents and are automatically incorporated in the NASA FAR Supplement (NFS).  PICs transmit nonregulatory, but frequently mandatory, procurement-related material (see NFS 1801.272).  A consolidated listing of PNs and PICs is issued periodically to identify PNs incorporated in the NFS and PICs that have been cancelled.
