A.4. ACQUISITION TECHNIQUES.
A.4.1. General. Each required subpacket of a DIP should be specifically cited in Block 16 on the DD Form 1423, Contract Data Requirements List (CDRL) included in the contract or purchase order. Since much of the required data may be obtained from Government sources where a CDRL is not required, the required subpackets should be included in the Statement of Work or other internal tasking document for data generated internally to the DoD. In all cases, the procuring activity has the option of physically receiving the data/document in any appropriate form (for example: paper, digital, microfilm), or of arranging for storage of, and access to, the technical data/document via a CITIS. The DoD is responsible for maintaining accurate configuration records of delivered material items and their configuration documentation when such records are required to enable item traceability, logistics support, demilitarization and eventual disposal.
