    Can we issue a DODAAC with just a contract letter in lieu of a full contract? Should assets be shipped to contractor prior to contract award? Contractor is sole source. Does that allow for exception? Thanks for the assistance.


    Answer

    This response is based on the information provided.  We suggest you discuss with your contracting officer and/or legal department as appropriate. 
     
    We should never (unless there are extraordinary circumstances) take contractual actions before a contract has been executed.  Fundamentally, we are responsible for any costs or any mishaps that occur.  We would have no recourse with the company as there would be no contract and thus no contractor.
