Actual responsibility for maintenance and revision of the FAR is vested jointly in the Defense Acquisition Regulatory Council (DARC) and the Civilian Agency Acquisition Council. The FAR provisions are implemented and augmented by the various agency supplements, and are subject to interpretation by the entities such as the Federal courts, the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals, the General Services Board of Contract Appeals and others.
