Class Deviation 2007-O0010
Implementation of the Synchronized Predeployment and Operational Tracker (SPOT) to Account for Contractor Personnel Performing in the United States Central Command Area of Responsibility

In accordance with section 1206 of the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005 (Pub. L. 108-375), the Department of Defense (DoD) requires accounting for all contractor personnel (including subcontractor personnel) performing in the United States Central Command Area of Responsibility (USCENTCOM AOR). This requirement excludes-

  • Personnel hired under contracts that do not exceed $25,000 and for which the period of performance is less than 30 days; and
  • Embarked contractor personnel, while afloat, that are tracked by the Diary Message Reporting System.

DoD has designated SPOT as the system to be used for collecting the required contractor personnel data. Contractor personnel authorized to accompany the U.S. Armed Forces should be covered by DFARS clause 252.225-7040, Contractor Personnel Authorized to Accompany the U.S. Armed Forces Deployed Outside the United States, as modified by Class Deviation 2007-O0004, which remains in effect until incorporated in the DFARS.

This Class Deviation 2007-O0010 provides a new clause for use in all contracts that require contractor performance in the USCENTCOM AOR by contractor personnel not already covered by DFARS 252.225-7040. Contracting officers shall use this clause in new solicitations and contracts in accordance with the clause prescription provided at Attachment 1. In addition, agencies shall take the necessary steps to incorporate the clause at Attachment 1 into existing contracts that meet the requirements of the clause prescription.

Special procedures and instructions regarding the immediate input into SPOT of the required data on contractor personnel employed on security and translator/linguist services contracts being performed in Iraq and Afghanistan were provided by the Interim Guidance for the Implementation of the SPOT program, dated September 28, 2007, signed by the Acting Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics. As stated therein, complete implementation guidance for the SPOT program will be issued before the end of the First Quarter FY2008.

This class deviation is effective upon signature, and remains in effect until otherwise rescinded.
