204.601  Record requirements.

 

      (a)  The DCADS meets FAR Subpart 4.6 record retention requirements.

 

      (d)  The Directorate for Information, Operation, and Reports (DIOR), of the Washington Headquarters Services (WHS) transmits required DoD information to the Federal Procurement Data System.

      (c)  DoD uses the DD Form 350, Individual Contracting Action Report, instead of the SF 279, Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS) Individual Contract Action Report.  DoD uses the DD Form 1057, Monthly Summary of Contracting Actions, instead of the SF 281, FPDS Summary Contract Action Report ($25,000 or Less).

              (2)  Complete the DD Form 350 when funds are obligated or deobligated or, in the case of actions with no funds, when the contract is established.  For actions accomplished by a contract administration office, complete the DD Form 350 upon receipt of the contractual instrument annotated “DD FORM 350 REPORTING COPY.”

 

              (3)  Submit all DD Forms 350 for the calendar month to the departmental data collection point (see 204.670-1(c)) in accordance with departmental or agency procedures. 

 

              (4)  Prepare and submit a corrected or canceling DD Form 350 as required in accordance with departmental data collection point instructions.

 

              (5)  Establish a control system for assigning report numbers to DD Forms 350 (Line A2 of the DD Form 350).  The number must have six positions and may be any combination of alpha or numeric characters.  If more than one activity within a contracting office uses the same reporting office code, the contracting office must assign separate blocks of numbers to each activity to prevent duplication of report numbers.

 

              (6)  Maintain the DD Form 350 in the contract file in any medium, in accordance with departmental or agency procedures.

 

      (b)  For DD Form 1057, contracting offices—

 

              (1)  Prepare a DD Form 1057, in accordance with the instructions in 253.204-71, covering reportable contracting actions (see 204.670-2(b)), including actions accomplished by contract administration offices on behalf of the contracting office.  An installation, base, or other activity may have more than one contracting office code to separate the various types of acquisitions, such as base and central contracting, or RDT&E and non-RDT&E acquisition.  Each contracting office with a separate code must submit its own DD Form 1057.

 

              (2)  Complete the DD Form 1057 within three working days after the cutoff of the reporting month.  Contracting offices may not cut off the reporting month before the 25th calendar day.  The cutoff date for September is September 30.  Submit the DD Form 1057 to the departmental data collection point in accordance with departmental  or agency procedures.

 

              (3)  Unless otherwise instructed by the departmental data collection point, do not submit revised DD Form 1057 reports.  Include any required corrections or adjustments in following month's report.

 

204.670-4  Contract administration office responsibilities.

Contract administration offices executing actions subject to DD Form 350 or DD Form 1057 reporting must submit an annotated copy of the contractual instrument to the contracting office so that the contracting office can submit the required report.

 

      (a)  For DD Form 350, annotate in the heading of the contractual instrument in large block letters “DD FORM 350 REPORTING COPY.”  Send the annotated copy to the contracting office within one working day after the action date.

 

      (b)  For DD Form 1057, annotate in the heading of the contractual instrument in large block letters “DD FORM 1057 REPORTING COPY.”  Send the annotated copy with the normal distribution.

 

204.670-5  Departmental data collection point responsibilities.

Departmental data collection points¾

 

      (a)  Collect DD Forms 350 and 1057 data provided by their contracting offices;

 

      (b)  Electronically record the data in accordance with the instructions for recording and editing developed by WHS-DIOR with the majority agreement of the departments and agencies and prescribed by the Director of Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy; and

 

      (c)  Submit monthly reports (noncumulative) to Washington Headquarters Services, ATTN:  DIOR, within 18 days after the close of the reporting period, except the due date for September may be extended for no more than ten days.  Report Control Symbol DD-AT&L(M)1014 applies to reports for DD Form 350 actions, and Report Control Symbol DD-AT&L(M)1015 applies to reports for DD Form 1057 actions.

 

204.670-6  Types of DD Form 350 reports.

There are three types of reports—single, consolidated, and multiple.

 

      (a)  A single report is one DD Form 350 report per action.

 

      (b)  A consolidated report combines several actions.

 

              (1)  Prepare consolidated reports for—

 

                    (i)  Military Traffic Management Command awards of indefinite-delivery contracts for ocean transportation.  The Command reports at the beginning of each fiscal year the estimated value of the orders for that fiscal year on one DD Form 350.

 

                    (ii)  Defense Energy Support Center or Defense Supply Center, Richmond, indefinite-delivery contracts for petroleum or petroleum supplies.  The Centers, at the time of award, report the estimated value of the orders to be placed against the contract on one DD Form 350.

 

                    (iii)  Orders placed by the Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) for resale items over $25,000.  DeCA consolidates the orders monthly and reports the cumulative dollar amounts and actions on one DD Form 350 in accordance with agency procedures.

 

                    (iv)  Vouchers processed by the U.S. Army Contracting Command, Europe (USACCE), for the purchase of utilities from municipalities (e.g., gas, electricity, water, sewage, steam, snow removal, and garbage collection).  USACCE consolidates these transactions monthly and reports the cumulative dollar amount on one DD Form 350 in accordance with departmental procedures.

 

              (2)  Consolidated reports may be prepared in accordance with departmental or agency procedures for orders under communications service agreements for local dial tone services.

 

      (c)  A multiple report is more than one DD Form 350 per contracting action.  Prepare multiple reports if—

 

              (1)  The action includes foreign military sales (FMS) requirements in addition to non-FMS requirements (Line B9 on the DD Form 350).  Submit one DD Form 350 report for the FMS requirements and another DD Form 350 report for the non-FMS requirements, except if either of the portions is $25,000 or less, report the $25,000 or less portion on a DD Form 1057 instead of a DD Form 350.

 

              (2)  The action includes more than one type of contract (Line C5 on the DD Form 350) and the type with the least dollar value exceeds $500,000.  Prepare a separate DD Form 350 for each contract type.

 

              (3)  The action includes non-DoD Federal agency requirements and DoD requirements.  Submit one DD Form 350 for the non-DoD requirements and another DD Form 350 for the DoD requirements.  If the DoD portion is $25,000 or less, report the DoD portion on a DD Form 1057 instead of a DD Form 350.

 

204.670-7  Security classification.

Submit DD Forms 350 as unclassified documents.  Classified contracts are not exempt from reporting solely because the contract is classified.  Contact the appropriate departmental data collection points for special instructions if it is necessary for security reasons to modify coding of any information on the DD Form 350.  If contact cannot be made for security reasons, obtain instructions from the Director of Security, Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Command, Control, Communications, and Intelligence), (703) 614-0578, or DSN 224-0578.
