Discuss how the policy change has enabled defense agencies to utilize commercial products to their advantage.

 

Policy change allows defense agencies to win much more contracts than the competitors. The government can change the quantity of what it is contracting for or how it is packaged or how it is being shipped. The contractor is entitled to equitable cost adjustment, but must comply with the changes. The government also has the right to cancel the contract if the need for the product or service no longer exists.
