SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    This proposed rule clarifies and, where necessary, updates policies 
and procedures for providing electronic payment-related documents and 
for processing payment requests and receiving reports in Wide Area 
WorkFlow (WAWF). Title 10 of the United States Code (U.S.C.), section 
2227, Electronic Submission and Processing of Claims for Contract 
Payments, requires that any claim for payment under a DoD contract be 
in electronic format. If electronic submission is unduly burdensome, 10 
U.S.C. 2227 allows an exemption. DoD published a final rule in the 
Federal Register at 77 FR 38731 on June 29, 2012 (DFARS Case 2011-
D027), to update DFARS policies and procedures for electronic 
submission of payment requests and receiving reports and established 
WAWF as the accepted DoD system for processing invoices and receiving 
reports.
    Some contractors have been prevented from using WAWF for some 
contracts because of a misinterpretation of the exemptions in DFARS 
subpart 232.70, Electronic Submission and Processing of Payment 
Requests and Receiving Reports. This proposed rule clarifies those 
exemptions and allows contractors to request permission from the 
contracting officer, in writing, to submit payment requests and 
receiving reports using temporary alternative methods, other than in 
electronic form.

II. Discussion and Analysis

    DoD is proposing to amend DFARS parts 232, 246, 252, and Appendix F 
to clarify and, where necessary, update the policies and procedures for 
electronic submission of payment requests and receiving reports. The 
following is a summary of the proposed changes:
     DFARS subpart 232.70, Electronic Submission and Processing 
of Payment Requests and Receiving Reports. Definitions of the terms 
``electronic form,'' ``payment request,'' and ``receiving report'' are 
inserted in their entirety in lieu of the reference stating that the 
terms are defined in the clause at DFARS 252.232-7003, Electronic 
Submission of Payment Requests. The policy on exceptions to submission 
of payment requests in electronic form is clarified by deleting the 
current list of exceptions at DFARS 232.7002(a)(ii) and providing a 
more general exception for cases in which contractor submission of 
electronic payment requests is not feasible (e.g., when contract 
performance is in a contingency or austere environment where internet 
connectivity is not available). This

[[Page 30662]]

clarification is necessary to ensure that the exceptions at DFARS 
232.7002(a)(ii) are not interpreted as prohibitions against use or 
submission of payment requests in WAWF. The current language at DFARS 
232.7002(a)(ii) is clear in that the use of WAWF is required unless 
access to WAWF by contractors is not feasible. The revised language in 
this rule does not change that basic policy. In addition, other text is 
relocated within the subpart in order to separate policy from 
procedures.
     DFARS 246.370, Material Inspection and Receiving Report. 
This section, which contains the prescription for the clause at DFARS 
252.246-7000, Material Inspection and Receiving Reports, is deleted, 
because the clause is being deleted.
     DFARS 246.471, Authorizing Shipment of Supplies. This 
section is revised to prevent the use of alternative procedures (e.g., 
allowing the contractor to release supplies for shipment) for foreign 
military sales contracts. Use of alternative procedures results in no 
signed receiving report with the packing list, which delays the 
shipment significantly and may lead to termination of the contract for 
convenience.
     DFARS 252.232-7003, Electronic Submission and Processing 
of Payment Requests and Receiving Reports. This clause is revised to 
clarify that a contractor may use methods other than WAWF to submit a 
payment request and receiving report when the contracting officer has 
authorized and provided instructions for the use of nonelectronic 
methods in the contract administration data section of the contract. 
The requirement for contractors to submit a receiving report at the 
time of each delivery of supplies or services under a contract is 
relocated to this clause from DFARS 252.246-7000, which is being 
deleted. In addition, policy statements are removed from the definition 
of ``electronic form;'' and in the definition of ``receiving report,'' 
a reference to the deleted clause 252.246-7000 is replaced with a 
reference to DFARS Appendix F, Material Inspection and Receiving 
Report.
     DFARS 252.232-7006, Wide Area WorkFlow Payment 
Instructions. This clause is revised to clarify the type of payment 
request to be used for cost-type line items, fixed-price line items, 
and various contract financing payments. The use of the WAWF ``combo'' 
document type and the use of Department of Defense Activity Address 
Codes are also clarified. The requirement to ensure a receiving report 
complies with DFARS Appendix F is relocated to this clause from DFARS 
252.246-7000, which is being deleted.
     DFARS 252.246-7000, Material Inspection and Receiving 
Report. This clause is deleted in its entirety because its procedures 
predate the WAWF automated procedures and processes. Therefore, much of 
this clause is now obsolete. The relevant text has been relocated to 
DFARS 252.232-7003, Electronic Submission and Processing of Payment 
Requests and Receiving Reports.
     Appendix F: Material Inspection and Receiving Report. This 
appendix is revised to remove a reference to the deleted clause 
242.246-7000, to clarify the requirement to enter unit prices on WAWF 
receiving reports, and to include the requirement to enter estimated 
prices for foreign military sales shipments if actual prices are not 
available. Invoice submission and packing list instructions are also 
clarified.

III. Applicability to Contracts at or Below the Simplified Acquisition 
Threshold (SAT) and for Commercial Items, Including Commercially 
Available Off-the-Shelf (COTS) Items

    This rule proposes to amend the clauses at DFARS 252.232-7003, 
Electronic Submission and Processing of Payment Requests and Receiving 
Reports, and 252.232-7006, Wide Area WorkFlow Payment Instructions. The 
objective of the rule is to clarify and, where necessary, update the 
policies and procedures for electronic submission of payment requests 
and receiving reports and amends the two clauses listed below.
    DoD plans to continue to apply both clauses to contracts at or 
below the SAT and to the acquisition of commercial items, including 
COTS items, as defined at FAR 2.101. This rule clarifies and updates 
policies and procedures for electronic submission of payment requests 
and receiving reports. Not applying this guidance to contracts at or 
below the SAT and for the acquisition of commercial items, including 
COTS items, would exclude contracts intended to be covered by this rule 
and undermine the overarching purpose of the rule. Consequently, DoD 
plans to apply the rule to contracts at or below the SAT and for the 
acquisition of commercial items, including COTS items.

IV. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563

    Executive Orders (E.O.s) 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess 
all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public 
health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). E.O. 
13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, 
of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. 
This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, not subject 
to review under section 6(b) of E.O. 12866, Regulatory Planning and 
Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is not a major rule under 5 
U.S.C. 804.

V. Executive Order 13771

    This rule is not an E.O. 13771, Reducing Regulation and Controlling 
Regulatory Costs, regulatory action, because this rule is not 
significant under E.O. 12866.

VI. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    DoD does not expect this proposed rule to have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the 
meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq., because 
the basic requirement for electronic invoicing (a statutory requirement 
under 10 U.S.C. 2227) already exists. However, an initial regulatory 
flexibility analysis has been performed.
    The objective of the rule is to clarify and, where necessary, 
update policies and procedures for submission of payment requests and 
receiving reports in electronic form, which is accomplished through 
Wide Area WorkFlow (WAWF). The requirement for DoD contractors to 
submit payment requests in electronic form is already a requirement in 
existing DFARS clauses. This rule clarifies the exemptions in DFARS 
subpart 232.70, Electronic Submission and Processing of Payment 
Requests and Receiving Reports.
    In fiscal year 2016, approximately 71,910 small businesses were 
registered to use WAWF.
    This rule allows contractors to request permission, in writing, to 
submit payment requests and receiving reports using methods other than 
WAWF. Most small businesses that are DoD contractors are expected to 
prefer WAWF over other methods because of the advantages of using WAWF. 
Therefore, DoD estimates that approximately 70 small businesses may 
submit, on an annual basis, one request each for use of a temporary 
alternative method of submission of payment requests and receiving 
reports.
    The rule does not duplicate, overlap, or conflict with any other 
Federal rules. There are no known significant

[[Page 30663]]

alternative approaches to the rule that would meet the requirements.
    DoD invites comments from small business concerns and other 
interested parties on the expected impact of this rule on small 
entities. DoD will also consider comments from small entities 
concerning the existing regulations in subparts affected by this rule 
in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 610. Interested parties must submit such 
comments separately and should cite 5 U.S.C. 610 (DFARS Case 2016-
D032), in correspondence.

VIII. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35) does apply; 
however, these proposed changes to the DFARS do not impose additional 
information collection requirements to the paperwork burden previously 
approved under Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number 
0704-0248, Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement, Appendix 
F, Inspection and Receiving Report.

and processing of payment requests and receiving reports could 
compromise the safeguarding of classified information or national 
security;
    (2) Cases in which contractor submission of electronic payment 
requests and receiving reports is not feasible (e.g., when contract 
performance is in an environment where internet connectivity is not 
available);
    (3) Cases in which DoD is unable to receive payment requests or 
provide acceptance in electronic form;
    (4) Cases in which [the contractor has requested permission in 
writing to submit payment requests and receiving reports by 
nonelectronic means, and] the contracting officer [has provided 
instructions for a temporary alternative method of submission of 
payment requests and receiving reports in the contract administration 
data section of the contract or task or delivery order (e.g., section 
G, an addendum to FAR 52.212-4, or applicable clause); and
    (5) When the Governmentwide commercial purchase card is used as the 
method of payment, only submission of the receiving report in 
electronic form is required.

payment requests and receiving reports is Wide Area WorkFlow (https://wawf.eb.mil/), except as follows:
    (i) For payment of commercial transportation services provided 
under a Government rate tender, contract, or task or delivery order for 
transportation services, the use of a DoD-approved electronic third

(e.g., PowerTrack, Transportation Financial Management System, and 
Cargo and Billing System) is permitted.
    (ii) For submitting and processing payment requests and receiving 
reports for contracts or task or delivery orders for rendered health 
care services, the use of TRICARE Encounter Data System as the

    (1) Documents necessary for payment, such as receiving reports, 
invoice approvals, contracts, contract modifications, and required 
certifications, shall also be processed in electronic form.
    (2) Scanned documents and other commonly used file formats are only 
acceptable for processing supporting documentation.
    (b) If one of the exceptions to submission in electronic form at 
232.7002(a) applies, the contracting officer shall--
    (1) Consult the payment office and the contract administration 
office regarding the alternative method to be used for submission of 
payment requests or receiving reports (e.g., facsimile or conventional 
mail); and
    (2) Provide procedures for invoicing in the contract administration 
data section of the contract or task or delivery order (e.g., section 
G, an addendum to FAR 52.212-4, or applicable clause) for submission of 
invoices by nonelectronic means. If submission of invoices by 
nonelectronic means is temporary, the procedures should specify the 
time period for which they apply.
0
5. Revise section 232.7004 to read as follows:

    (a) Unless an exception to submission in electronic form at 
232.7002(a) applies and instructions for invoices are contained in the 
contract administration data section of the contract or task or 
delivery order, use the clause at 252.232-7003, Electronic Submission 
of Payment Requests and Receiving Reports, in solicitations and 
contracts, including solicitations and contracts using FAR part 12 
procedures for the acquisition of commercial items.
    (b) Use the clause at 252.232-7006, Wide Area WorkFlow Payment 
Instructions, in solicitations and contracts or task or delivery 
orders, including solicitations and contracts using FAR part 12 
procedures for the acquisition of commercial items, when 252.232-7003 
is used and none of the exceptions at 232.7002(b)(1) apply. See PGI

    (i) For cost-type line items, including labor-hour or time-and-
materials, submit a cost voucher.
    (ii) For fixed price line items--
    (A) That require shipment of a deliverable, submit the invoice and 
receiving report specified by the Contracting Officer;


[Contracting Officer: Insert applicable invoice and receiving report 
document type(s) for fixed price line items that require shipment of a 
deliverable.]

    (B) For services that do not require shipment of a deliverable, 
submit either the Invoice 2in1, which meets the requirements for the 
invoice and receiving report, or the applicable invoice and receiving

    (18) UNIT PRICE. When using the WAWF RRR, the unit price is the 
price of the repair, overhaul, or maintenance service from the 
contract.
    (i) The contractor may, at its option, enter unit prices on the 
WAWF RR, except when the contract has Item Unique Identification 
(IUID) requirements and the receiving report is being processed in 
WAWF, the unit price must represent the acquisition cost that will 
be recorded in the IUID registry. Therefore, in such cases, the unit 
price is required. See DFARS 252.211-7003, Item Unique 
Identification and Valuation).
    (ii) The contractor shall enter unit prices for each item of 
property fabricated or acquired for the Government and delivered to 
a contractor as Government furnished property (GFP). Get the unit 
price from Section B of the contract. If the unit price is not 
available, use an estimate. The estimated price should be the 
contractor's estimate of what the items cost the Government. When 
the price is estimated, enter ``Estimated Unit Price'' in the 
description field. When delivering GFP via WAWF to another 
contractor, WAWF will initiate a property transfer if the vendor who 
is initiating the WAWF RR is also registered as a vendor property 
shipper in WAWF and the vendor receiving the property is also a 
vendor property receiver in WAWF.
    (iii) For clothing and textile contracts containing a bailment 
clause, enter the cited Government furnished property unit value as 
``GFP UNIT VALUE'' in the description field.
    (iv) For all copies of DD Forms 250 for FMS shipments, enter 
actual prices, if available. If actual prices are not available, use 
estimated prices. When the price is estimated, enter an ``E'' after 
the price.

F-306 Packing List Instructions

    (a) Contractors may use a WAWF processed RR or the WAWF RRR, as 
a packing list. WAWF provides an option to print the RR or RRR. 
Contractors can print a RR or RRR from a system other than WAWF if a 
signed copy is required. In such cases, the contractor shall print 
the WAWF RR or RRR only after a signature is applied by the 
Government inspector or authorized acceptor in WAWF. Copies printed 
from the contractor's system shall be annotated with ``\\original 
signed in WAWF\\'' in lieu of the inspector or acceptor's signature. 
Ensure a copy is visible on the outside and one is placed inside the 
package.
    (b) If the contract requires Government source inspection and 
acceptance at origin, the contractor shall ensure that its packaging 
documentation includes a RR or RRR that documents inspection, 
acceptance, or both by the Government inspector or authorized 
acceptor. A paper DD Form 250 may be used in lieu of WAWF generated 
RRs or RRRs when one of the exceptions in paragraph (d) of the 
clause at DFARS 252.232-7003 applies.
