Additionally, when the purchase order or definitive contract being awarded is in response to a contingency, an individual report is required when the value of the award is greater than ,000, not the MPT of ,000 referenced in FAR part 2.The contract or order award includes line items with more than one type of contract pricing (e.g., fixed-price, cost-plus-fixed-fee) and each of the types of contract pricing have a dollar value greater than ,000,000 for that type.
Contracting officers are not required to delete and re-enter CARs in FPDS as multiple CARs if, during the life of the contract or order, subsequent unanticipated modifications make the award eligible for multiple CARs.
(C) The following multiple CAR transaction identification numbers have been established for reporting multiple CARs and shall be used by all Do D contracting offices.
Using the generic codes on actual contract actions masks the true identity of the vendor and immediately makes any accurate electronic processing of invoices, receiving reports, and payments impossible; and can, in fact, result in misdirected payments.
As a reminder FAR subpart 4.18 requires each contractor be identified by its actual CAGE code on contract actions; there is no exemption to the requirement for an actual CAGE code.) An individual CAR is required to be reported for each of the following types of awards when the award process was conducted using other than micro-purchase procedures and the value is greater than the micro-purchase threshold (MPT): Although a contract action report is not required for these awards when micro-purchase procedures were followed and the value is less than the MPT, it is encouraged as a best practice if the award was not accomplished using the Governmentwide commercial purchase card or a Standard Form 44.
