Each amendment, or set of amendments should be accompanied by an

Use of this Disclosure Statement, amended February 1996, shall
be phased in as follows:
A. New Contractors. This form shall be used by new contractors
when they are initially required to disclose their cost accounting
practices pursuant to 9903.2021.
B. Existing Contractors. If a contractor has disclosed its
cost accounting practices on a prior edition of the Disclosure
Statement (CASBDS1), such disclosure shall remain in effect until
the contractor amends or revises a significant portion of the Disclosure
Statement in accordance with CAS 9903.2023. Minor amendments to
an existing DS1 may continue to be made using the prior form.
However, when a substantive change is made, a complete Disclosure
Statement must be filed using this form. In any event, all
contractors and subcontractors must submit a new Disclosure
Statement (this version of the CASBDS1) not later than the
beginning of the contractor's next full fiscal year after
December 31, 1998.
