Contracting and Procurement Division
The role of the Contracting and Procurement Division (CPD) is to both ensure a proper contracting governance strategy for the SFLC and provide a comprehensive, effective and efficient contracting support to the various branches of the Product Lines and Shared Service Divisions. To do this we manage the procurement of supplies, program depot maintenance, engineering services and other services. Our main responsibilities comprise procurement planning, solicitation, contract award, contract closeout, appropriate QA inspections, and COTR technical oversight; in addition, we directly address warranty issues, assist the development of acquisition planning, ensure delivery/acceptance, and assist with a contract's statement-of-work through to contract closeout, and if necessary, termination and litigation. The beforehand mentioned responsibilities are not comprehensive; to be further introduced to our division, please take a look at our branch pages and our division's SOP. Contracting authority, policy, processes and CPD chain of command are all linked directly to the SFLC COCO.
