    What is the best cite to use for a close out modification under block 13?


    Answer

    I couldn't find a particular FAR reference to list in Block 13 of the modification for de-obligating funds. I've seen in my experience if funds are left on the contract, the contracting officer will list "mutual agreement of both parties" in block 13 and execute a bilateral modification requiring the contractor signature. As far as officially closing out the contract, DoD uses the DD form 1594 to close out the contract after the contractor has submitted a "Release of Claims" typically with the last invoice.
