Canceled by PIC 01-24



Procurement Information Circular

August 13, 1997


PURPOSE: Distribution of contract property delegation instructions.

BACKGROUND: NFS 1845.7203 authorizes the Headquarters Logistics Management Office (Code JLG) to develop Contract Administration Delegation Special Instructions on Property Administration and Plant Clearance.

GUIDANCE: NASA contracting offices should use the latest version of the standard property delegation special instructions. Enclosed are the most recent versions, dated June 1997. Any modification of the standard property delegation special instructions must be approved in advance by Code JLG. These instructions have been distributed by separate means to center Supply and Equipment Management offices, the Defense Contract Management Command (DCMC) Headquarters, and the Office of Naval Research Headquarters. Contracting officers should ensure that: these instructions are included when contracts are awarded; receipt of the instructions is acknowledged by DCMC; a copy of the DCMC acknowledgment is provided to the center Industrial Property Officer; and DCMC regularly provides all the required information and documents. Changes to property delegation special instructions for grants will be provided separately in a Grants Notice or revision to the Grants and Cooperative Agreement Handbook

EFFECTIVE DATE: This PIC is effective as dated and shall remain in effect until canceled or superseded. Although recommended, delegation instructions under existing contracts need not be changed solely to incorporate the June 1997 version of the standard property delegation special instructions. However, if delegation instructions are being changed for any other reason, the new standard property delegation special instructions should also be included.

HEADQUARTERS CONTACTS: Tom O'Toole, Code H, (202) 358-0478; Billie E. Wilchek, (202) 358-2301.
