What is the difference between our Contracting Officers and Ordering Officials?
Does Ordering Official authorized or required to have a warrant, SF 1402?
Contracting officers can obligate Government funds by signing contractual documents. Ordering officers can place task and delivery orders against contracts already signed by contracting officers. The SF 1402 is used to appoint contracting officers while ordering officers are appointed via appointment letters. The required format of these appointment letters can vary by service/agency supplement.
