As part of the corrective actions, the FAR Councils proposed a new regulation designed to reinforce the requirement of collecting from contractors all forms of Government provided identification once they are no longer needed to support a contract. Specifically, Government contractors (and their subcontractors) must establish policies and procedures to account for all forms of Government-provided identification issued to Government contractors under a contract, and return such identification to the issuing agency at the earliest of any of the following,
- when no longer needed for contract performance;
- upon completion of a contractor employee's employment;
- upon contract completion or termination.
