Question #1: What is the definition of a “delivery event?”
Open full Question Details
The author and presenter of the training Contractual Transfers of “Contract” Property Accountability used the term “delivery event” to illustrate when the contracting officer executes the line item (e.g., contract line item, exhibit line item).
Question #2: Can it be something other than a DD250?
A DD Form 250 (Material Inspection and Receiving Report) or Wide Area Work Flow must be used to document the delivery and acceptance of supplies and services under a contract; to include contractor-acquired property (CAP). Reference DFARS 252.246-7000 Material Inspection and Receiving Report and DFARS 252.232-7003 Electronic Submission of Payment Requests and Receiving Reports. Also, reference the definition of “Government-furnished property” in FAR 45.101. It states in part “…Government-furnished property also includes contractor-acquired property if the contractor-acquired property is a deliverable under a cost contract when accepted by the Government for continued use under the contract.”
As you have pointed out, DFARS PGI 245.103-71 prohibits the use of a DD Form 1149 (Requisition and Invoice/Shipping Document) to authorize the transfer of Government property accountability from one contract to another. The only form that can be used as authorization to transfer Government property accountability from one contract to another is an SF 30 (Amendment of Solicitation/Modification of Contract).
