Recently, the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) was amended to better track corporate performance of affiliated companies.  In short, this is rule is likely designed to combat entities that had issues performing federal contracts and reformed or reconstituted themselves or affiliated companies to avoid the consequences of those issues.  This is going to primarily effect FAR Part 9 and 52 by amendment.

Introduction from Federal Register

On May 7, 2016, a final rule was issued, effective April 2016, that amended the FAR to implement a section of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2013 to include in the Federal Awardee Performance and  Integrity Information System (FAPIIS), to the extent practicable, identification of any immediate owner or subsidiary, and  all predecessors of an offeror  that  held a Federal contract or grant  within the last three years. The objective is to provide a more  comprehensive understanding of the performance and  integrity of the corporation before  awarding a Federal contract.

If you are operating under the small business rules of the SBA, this may not affect you as greatly because of the definitions used in those programs.  The one twist that may occur is if a holding company is active in government contracting and the owner of another government contracting firm.  If that is the case, you may want to examine the regulations a bit more closely.
