On June 30, 2016, the Defense Acquisition Regulations System, Department of Defense (DoD) published in the Federal Register a final rule [Docket DARS–2016–0022] amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to add Ukraine as a new designated country under the World Trade Organization Government Procurement Agreement (GPA). The GPA entered into force for Ukraine on May 18, 2016. The United States, which is also a party to the GPA, has agreed to waive discriminatory purchasing requirements for eligible products and suppliers of Ukraine beginning on May 18, 2016. Therefore, the rule adds Ukraine to the list of WTO GPA countries wherever it appears in the DFARS, as part of the definition of “designated country”.
