4115-7-07 Specification changes.

(A) Specifications cited in the procurement list may undergo a series of changes, indicated by revision dates, to keep current with industry changes and government needs. Since it is not feasible to show the latest revision current on the publication date, only the basic specification is referenced in the procurement list. Government ordering offices shall notify the central nonprofit agency of the latest applicable specification.

(B) When a government ordering office is changing the design or construction of a product on the procurement list, the committee and the central nonprofit agency directly connected to the product in question shall be notified of the contemplated change prior to its effective date and shall be given adequate time in which to redesign or retool to incorporate such change in its listed products.

(C) When a government ordering office is changing the specifications for a site-specific service or service priced as a product listed on the procurement list, the committee and central nonprofit agency directly connected to the service in question shall be notified of the contemplated change prior to its effective date and shall be given time in which to incorporate the specification change into the listed service.
