Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement; Material Inspection and Receiving Report (DFARS Case 2003-D085)
DATES: Effective Date: December 19, 2006.
DoD has issued a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to clarify requirements for preparation of material inspection and receiving reports under DoD contracts. In addition, the rule relocates text to the DFARS companion resource, Procedures, Guidance, and Information.
Material inspection and receiving report,
This final rule updates DFARS Appendix F requirements for
preparation of DD Form 250, Material Inspection and Receiving Report. The changes to Appendix F include
[cir] Clarification of requirements for marking of shipments when a contractor's certificate of conformance is used as the basis for acceptance;
[cir] Relocation of the requirement for the contractor to provide sufficient copies of DD Form 250, from F701 to F103; and
[cir] Deletion of procedures for documenting Government contract quality assurance performed at a subcontractor's facility and for distribution and correction of DD Form 2501 documents. This text has been relocated to the DFARS companion resource, Procedures, Guidance, and Information (PGI), at http://www.acq.osd.mil/dpap/dars/pgi.
DoD published a proposed rule at 70 FR 39975 on July 12, 2005. One respondent submitted comments on the proposed rule. The respondent recommended revision of Appendix F and the clause at DFARS 252.246 7000, Material Inspection and Receiving Report, to clarify that contractors are required to include a copy of the receiving report (either the paper DD Form 250 or the Wide Area WorkFlowReceipt and Acceptance (WAWFRA) receiving report) with the shipment. As a result of this comment, the proposed change to F401(a), which stated that use of WAWFRA satisfies DD Form 250 distribution requirements, has been excluded from this final rule; and DoD published another proposed rule at 71 FR 65769 on November 9, 2006, to request comments on the recommended revision.
This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review under Executive Order 12866, dated September 30, 1993.
B. Regulatory Flexibility Act
DoD certifies that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., because the rule makes no significant change to DoD policy for the preparation and use of material inspection and receiving reports. C. Paperwork Reduction Act
The information collection requirements of DD Form 250, Material
Inspection and Receiving Report, have been approved by the Office of
Management and Budget under Control Number 07040248, for use through March 31, 2008.
