DOD will accept comments on electronic payment rule

The Defense Department is asking for the public’s input on a proposal to amend the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement to require contractors to submit payment invoices electronically.

In accordance with the Government Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, DOD wants to add the new contract clause to implement Section 1008 of the fiscal 2001 National Defense Authorization Act.

The proposal would require contractors to submit payment requests via the Web Invoicing System run by the Defense Finance and Accounting Service; the Wide Area WorkFlow Receipts and Acceptance site run by the Defense Information Systems Agency; or the American National Standards Institute’s electronic data interchange formats.

The secretary of Defense could exempt contractors from the requirement if it is deemed “unduly burdensome,” or for five other reasons spelled out in the proposal.

Respondents may submit comments at emissary.acq.osd.mil/dar/dfars.nsf/pubcomm until July 30. Respondents must cite DFARS Case 2002-D001 in the case number line of the comment form.
