MILITARY STANDARD CONTRACT ADMINISTRATION PROCEDURES
|Publication Date:||17 February 1999|
The Military Standard Contract Administration Procedures (MILSCAP) have been established to attain a greater degree of simplification, standardization, and automation in the processing of contract and contract related logistics and financial data.
This manual prescribes uniform procedures, rules, data elements, codes, formats, and time standards concerning the interchange of contract related information between and among DoD Components. This standardization action provides the basis for tne L)OU Components to design ana implement compatible internal procedures for coding, transmitting, decoding, and using logistics information.
The provisions of this manual apply to all Components of DoD on contracts assigned for contract administration to Defense Contract Management Districts (DCMDs). Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), subpart 42.2, establishes the policy for assignment of contract administration. All elements of DoD are encouraged to use these procedures, where possible, for those contracts not assigned for field administration.
