De-obligation of Funds

In order to de-obligate funds or move funds from one technical area task (TAT) or core analysis task (CAT) to another the sending agency must work with the DTIC to perform the following tasks:

    • The sending agency needs to ensure that the funds are available for de-obligation. In other words, confirm with the IAC that the funds have not been nor will be expended.

    • The sending agency must submit a MIPR to de-obligate the funds from the TAT or CAT.

    • Once both of the tasks above have been accomplished the contracting office will issue a modification to the delivery order that de-obligates those funds.

    • Once the contracting office has issued the modification to the delivery order that de-obligates those funds, the sending agency can then send a second MIPR re-submitting the funds to another TAT or CAT.

DTIC and the contracting office will work with the IAC to ensure the amount can successfully be de-obligated. Once the IAC confirms that the funds are available for de-obligation (i.e. have not been expended), DTIC will process and accept the de-obligation MIPR.

If the IAC has expended the funds, the customer will be notified. Please note that if it is determined by the contracting officer's representative (COR) , contracting officer and the IAC that the delivery order being de-obligated is in contract closeout, the de-obligation cannot be processed.

De-obligation of Direct Cite Funds

Since DTIC does not have any visibility on the disbursement history for direct cite funding, the customer should contact the contracting officer's representative (COR) to begin the de-obligation process. The COR will work with the customer, contracting officer and the contractor to determine if there is funding available for de-obligation.

Once the de-obligation amount is agreed upon, the customer must submit a MIPR and the de-obligation approval documentation to

Moving Funds from one Technical Area Task to another Technical Area Task or to a Core Analysis Task
