Congressional notification is required for any termination involving a reduction in employment of 100 or more contractor employees. Proposed terminations must be cleared through department/agency liaison offices before release of the termination notice, or any information on the proposed termination, to the contractor. Follow the procedures at PGI 249.7001 for congressional notification and release of information.
See DoD Class Deviation 2011-O0002, Congressional Notification on Significant Contract Terminations, issued on October 8, 2010. The class deviation eliminates the congressional notification requirement for firms performing in Iraq or Afghanistan if the firm is not incorporated in the United States. This deviation is effective until incorporated in the DFARS or rescinded.
