    Can the PCO override DCMA's variance classification decision? If DCMA determines a variance is a Major change can PCO/Program office process the change as a minor?


    Answer

    Yes.  The PCO has the authority to override DCMA’s variance classification decision.  The DCMA’s decision is actually a recommendation (typically resulting from a Material Board Review) and is not binding on the PCO nor the Program Office. Likewise, the PCO may process a DCMA recommended Major change as a Minor change.
