The DFARS further promulgate US DoD direction and guidance that is more specific than the FAR. Also, it discusses procurement and contract administration that is unique to the military. It is a supplement to the FAR to be used in conjunction with the FAR.
DFARS guidance is issued under statutory authority of the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF). The standing committee that recommends DFARS changes to SECDEF is called the Defense Acquisition Regulatory Council (DAR Council).
