Title 48: Federal Acquisition Regulations System
Subpart 302.70—Common HHSAR Acronyms and Abbreviations

302.7000   Common HHSAR acronyms and abbreviations.

(a) The HHSAR cites numerous acquisition-related and organizational acronyms and abbreviations. Each of these is established where first cited in the text, following the use of the unabbreviated term, and are used in subsequent subparts of that part or any other part of the HHSAR.

(b) The table below cites, for reference purposes, the most commonly used acronyms and abbreviations—i.e., those that have applicability to multiple parts of the HHSAR, and where they are first cited. They are listed alphabetically. The HHSAR also contains other acronyms and abbreviations, which because they are cited only in one HHSAR part, subpart, section, or in reference to a particular topic, are not listed in the table. An example is DCIS (Departmental Contracts Information System) cited in subpart 304.602.
