6.3 Consideration of data requirements. The following data requirements
should be considered when this specification is applied on a contract. The
applicable Data Item Descriptions (DID's) should be reviewed in conjunction
with the specific acquisition to ensure that only essential data are
requested/provided and that the DID's are tailored to reflect the requirements
of the specific acquisition. To ensure correct contractual application of the
data requirements, a Contract Data Requirements List (DD Form 1423) must be
prepared to obtain the data, except where DOD FAR Supplement 27.475-1 exempts
the requirement for a DD Form 1423.
Suggested Tail oring
The above DID's were those cleared as of the date of this specification. The
current issue of DOD 5010.12L, Acquisition Management Systems and Data
Requirements Control List (AMSDL), must be researched to ensure that only
current, cleared DID's are cited on the DD Form 1423.
6.4 First article. When a first article inspection is required, the
item(s) should be a preproduction model. The first article should consist of
one or more units. The contracting officer should include specific
instructions in acquisition documents regarding arrangements for examinations,
approval of the first article test results and disposition of the first
articles. Invitation for bids should provide that the Government reserves the
right to waive the requirement for samples for first article inspection to
those bidders offering a product which has been previously acquired or tested
by the Government, and that bidders-offering such products, who wish to rely
on such production or test, must furnish evidence with the bid that prior
Government approval is presently appropriate for the pending contract.
Bidders should not submit alternate bids unless specifically requested to do
so in the solicitation.
6.4.1 Incident report. When the contractor conducts the demonstration and
test specified herein, a written report within 24 hours, of any malfuncition or
