Effective immediately, this class deviation revises and supersedes the class deviation issued on March 27, 2020. The revision is necessary to change the reference to the office, to which interim vouchers are submitted, from “disbursing office” to “payment office.”
Therefore, effective immediately, in response to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) national emergency, contracting officers shall direct contractors to submit interim vouchers under classified contracts, using an appropriate method, directly to the payment office listed in the contract. Interim vouchers under classified contracts are considered provisionally approved by the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA). Contracting officers shall require contractors to follow all program security protocols and to continue to safeguard program information when submitting interim vouchers that are considered provisionally approved.
Contractors have been required to submit interim vouchers to the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 42.803(b)(1) and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 242.803(b)(i)(A) and (B). For some classified contracts, contractors submit interim vouchers outside the Procurement Integrated Enterprise Environment (PIEE) or other authorized unclassified system because of security restrictions. This deviation relieves the requirement for the interim voucher to be submitted to DCAA prior to payment.
This class deviation remains in effect until rescinded.
