Consumption Analysis of Government Material Analysis of Government Material2020-08-31T16:00:00Z,<div class="ExternalClass5D3DC6AA64A9418C8D48F42930E8334C">A new Industrial Contract Property Management video lecture, “Government Property Consumption Analysis,” has been published. The purpose of the video is to aid in the performance of a consumption analysis during the audit of a contractor’s property management system. A consumption analysis is used to determine whether the contractor has reasonably consumed Government material in performance of the contract. The target audience consists of property administrators, contracting officers who have retained the property administration function, and contracting officer representatives who have been delegated the responsibility to perform property administration in the absence of a property administrator.<br> The video lecture is located at: <a href=""></a>.</div>string;#/training/career-development/icpm/blog/Consumption-Analysis-of-Government-Material
Government Furnished Property (GFP) Module Property Loss Training Furnished Property (GFP) Module Property Loss Training2020-01-14T12:00:00Z Module.png, Module.png Module.png<div class="ExternalClassDAABBFE1F1D7450DBF4F8B2C857CCA95">Defense Pricing and Contracting will be providing training on the use of the GFP Module Property Loss application within the Procurement Integrated Enterprise Environment (PIEE). There are two training sessions scheduled for January 23, 2020. The first session, <em>Property Loss for Contractors</em>, will be held from 10 – 11 AM EST. The second session is <em>Property Loss Training for Government Users</em>. It is scheduled for 1 – 2:30 PM EST. For more information visit <a href=""></a>. The webinars should be beneficial for property administrators, industrial property management specialist, contracting officers, and contracting specialists.<br> <br> Contracts that include the Government property clause of FAR 52.245-1 require the insertion of DFARS 252.245-7002 <em>Reporting Loss of Government Property</em>. Currently, DFARS 252.245-7002 requires contractors to submit property loss reports via the Defense Contract Management Agency Property Loss eTool. According to the training slides, a deviation is in progress that will allow use of the GFP Module Property Loss application while DFARS updates are processing.</div>string;#/training/career-development/icpm/blog/Government-Furnished-Property-(GFP)-Module-Property-Loss-Training
Listing GFP in Solicitations and Contracts GFP in Solicitations and Contracts2019-07-24T12:00:00Z, Module.png<div class="ExternalClass6B20E3D3375D4864A99478B8C190DA9A">On July 18, 2019 the DoD Inspector General released Report Number DODIG-2019-103, <em>Audit of Air Force Accountability of Government Property and Oversight of Contractual Maintenance Requirements in the Contract Augmentation Program IV in Southwest Asia.</em> One finding states “PCOs did not consistently include GFP lists with the data elements required to establish accountable records in awarded contracts.” Requirements to list Government-furnished property (GFP) to be provided to offerors/contractors for contract performance in solicitations, contract awards, and contract modifications to transfer Government property from one contract to another have always existed in the FAR. FAR 45.2 – S<em>olicitation and Evaluation Procedures</em> requires the contracting officer to insert a listing of Government property in all solicitations where GFP is anticipated. It also specifies the required data elements to be included. Furthermore, DoD has standardized how GFP listings are to be created. DFARS Subpart 245.1 requires the use of GFP Attachments using the procedures of DFARS PGI 245.103-72.<br> <br> As the DODIG report finding indicates, GFP listings are used by accountable property officers to maintain accountable property records in an accountable system of record. This is critical in establishing visibility and accountability of Government property in the possession of contractors. GFP lists have contractual purposes too. GFP lists establish agreement between the Government and contractors on precisely what property the Government will furnish for contract performance. A GFP listing also serves as the contractor’s written authority to use the property on the accountable contract and it establishes contractor stewardship responsibilities for the property. Additionally, GFP listings are used in the performance of contract property administration responsibilities that determine whether the contractor has processes to establish and maintain complete, current, and auditable Government property records of all transactions. As DoD continues to strive toward achieving increased visibility and accountability of GFP it is necessary to be diligent in proper use and insertion of GFP listings in solicitations and contracts.<br> <br> (GFP Module and GFP Attachment training can be found at <a href=""></a>.

Requirement to Add Government Property Clause Expanded to Add Government Property Clause Expanded2019-05-06T16:00:00Z, Fields/DAU_Contracting Signing_20170103.jpg<div class="ExternalClass9CFC1ECDF3AE4AF3A7017DDE6FEC774B">As part of the effort to improve accountability of Government-furnished property, DoD issued a <a href="">final rule</a> on April 30, 2019 that amends DFARS 245.107. The final rule expands the use of the Government Property clause at FAR 52.245-1 to all purchase orders for repair, maintenance, overhaul, or modification of Government property regardless of the unit acquisition cost of the items to be repaired. The DFARS prescription is to be used in lieu of the prescription at FAR 45.107(d), which does not require the use of the FAR 52.245-1 for such property when the unit acquisition cost of the property to be repaired does not exceed the simplified acquisition threshold and no other Government property is being provided to the Contractor.</div>string;#/training/career-development/icpm/blog/Requirement-to-Add-Government-Property-Clause-Expanded
