7600A - General Terms and Condition (GT&C) Section

The GT&C is the partnership section of the IAA.  It sets the relationship between the servicing agency (DTIC) and the requesting agency.  It identifies the agencies entering into the agreement, the authority permitting the agreement, and the agreement action, period, and type. This section identifies the general terms and conditions that will govern the relationship between the requesting agency and servicing agency, including roles and responsibilities for both partners to ensure effective management of the effort. A GT&C is like a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and can be used in its place.

No fiscal obligations are created through the execution of the GT&C; therefore, no services may be performed and/or no goods may be delivered.

IAA Number






The IAA Number is a unique agreement number that must be established between the Requesting Agency and DTIC that will track each IAA from the beginning through to completion or termination.

Each Requesting Agency should either establish the IAA Number or may agree to an IAA number assigned by the Servicing Agency.

The recommended IAA Number is a three-component numbering schema to capture and track the following:

  • The first component is the GT&C number.
  • The second component tracks any related Orders but is zero filled on the GT&C because there may be more than one Order.
  • The third component tracks any amendments to the GT&C or modifications to related Orders.

Regarding section 14 above, in order to allocate the socioeconomic credit the Servicing Agency (DTIC) will inform the Requesting Agency of any Small Business awards but is not able to alter the data in the Federal Procurement Data System.

DTIC's CSDC is assessed each year by the IAC Reimbursable Review Board in consultation with the General Counsel and the OUSD Comptroller and will be adjusted yearly, therefore the CSDC rate may fluctuate during the course of this Agreement.  This is an estimate.  For the purposes of this estimate, please enter the provisional CSDC rate of 1.2%.  When preparing your financial document, please see for the actual rate.  At no time should it be expected that the CSDC is 0% for the life of the project.

The Requesting Agency will provide funding for TAT services and CSDC on the FMS 7600B.  TAT funds are collected as services are performed but 100% of the CSDC provided is collected within 30-45 days after the acceptance is issued.   Collection will take place by DFAS (through IPAC) using standard DOD collection processes. DTIC does not generate or provide customer invoices. The Defense Agencies Initiative accounting system automatically generates revenue and billing events as DTIC is billed by the vendor.  Revenue and billing events for 100% of the CSDC provided on Form 7600B will be entered in DAI at the end of the first month.  DFAS processes billing events and collections via IPAC.

It is the responsibility of the receiving component to notify DTIC and the COR of any intent to stop work and/or payment. This includes the intent to charge back any IPAC transactions initiated by DTIC.  The receiving component is responsible for paying all vendor costs incurred on the project prior to an official contract mod terminating the effort.
