Issue Summary

Effects of Commercial Activities Contracts (A76) on Military Spouse Preference

Issue Number 518
Status Unattainable
Issue Title Effects of Commercial Activities Contracts (A76) on Military Spouse Preference
Scope Employment opportunities for military spouses have diminished due to A76 Commercial Activities (CA) contracts. Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 52.207-3 contains a standard clause directing hiring practices that do not address Military Spouse Preference (MSP). Government failure to require contractors to utilize MSP diminishes employment opportunities, which negatively impacts family finances and ultimately soldier retention.
Issue Recommendation Amend the FAR 52.207-3 to include MSP.
Military Component
Demographic Group Family Members
Subject Area Employment
Geographic Area Universal
Entered AFAP Nov 2002
Final Action Date Nov 2003
Accomplishments This issue was declared unattainable because the Office of the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Installations & Environment) does not support extending the Right of First Refusal to individuals who are not federal career employees. The Military Spouse Preference Program (MSP) applies only to DoD and only to military spouses who relocate to accompany their sponsor on a permanent change of station move.
