This class deviation provides a new paragraph (g) for use in DFARS clause 252.225-7040, Contractor Personnel Authorized to Accompany U.S. Armed Forces Deployed outside the United States (Atch 1). It implements the Office of the Secretary of Defense memo of January 25, 2007, Designation of Synchronized Predeployment and Operational Tracker (SPOT) as Central Repository for Information on Contractors Deploying with the Forces (CDF) (Atch 2).
Contracting officers shall use the clause with the attached paragraph (g) in new solicitations and contracts in accordance with the clause prescription at DFARS 225.7402-4(a).
In addition, for contracts already containing the clause DFARS 252.225-7040 (either the June 2005 or the June 2006 version), contracting officers shall inform the contractors that SPOT is the appropriate automated system to use for the required list of contractor personnel.
This class deviation is effective upon signature, and remains in effect until incorporated in DFARS, or until otherwise rescinded.
