Description

Objective:

The course objective is to present concepts, facts, principles, processes, and procedures designed to aid DCMA personnel in effectively surveilling the control of NCM as part of their commitment to contract administration in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulations (FARs), Defense Federal Acquisition Supplements (DFARS) and applicable agency policy and procedures. This is a journey-man level course.

Learning Outcomes:

  • outline regulatory requirements for the effective control of Nonconforming Material (NCM) in DoD contracts with regard to DCMA and supplier roles and responsibilities and the NCM process, including the Material Review Board (MRB), Request for Variance (RFV), and Engineering Change Preproposals (ECPs), in accordance with DCMA Instructions (DCMA-INSTs) 1207, 217, 207, 303, Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Parts 46.101, 46.105, 52.246-2 thru -9, 42.302(a)(47), 46.407, 7, subpart 7.5, and 7.503(12)(v), Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 246.407, and ANSI/EIA-649-1
  • given a sample Contractor Nonconforming Materials (NCM) scenario, establish a multifunctional working group for the purpose of Effective NCM Surveillance in accordance with the requirements outlined in DCMA-INST 1207, Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Parts 46.101, 46.105, 52.246-2 thru -9, 42.302(a)(47), 46.407, 7, subpart 7.5, and 7.503(12)(v) and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 246.407
  • given a sample Contractor's Material Review Board Request for Variance (MRB RFV) submittal, use information from the multifunctional working group to process the submittal and make determinations in accordance with DCMA-INST 1207, Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Parts 46.101, 46.105, 52.246-2 thru -9, 42.302(a)(47), 46.407, 7, subpart 7.5, and 7.503(12)(v) and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 246.407
  • given a sample Contractor's Material Review Board Request for Variance (MRB RFV) submittal data and trend analysis, describe how to work with the Contractor to achieve reduction goals, including reducing NCM frequency, identifying quality improvement actions, or seek consideration when warranted, in accordance with DCMA-INST 1207, Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Parts 46.101, 46.105, 52.246-2 thru -9, 42.302(a)(47), 46.407, 7, subpart 7.5, and 7.503(12)(v) and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 246.407
  • given a sample Contractor's Nonconforming Materials (NCM) scenario and Material Review Board Request for Variance (MRB RFV) submittal, execute Nonconforming Material (NCM) Data Collection and Analysis (DC&A) as required by DCMA-INST 1207, DCMA-INST 323, Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Parts 46.101, 46.105, 52.246-2 thru -9, 42.302(a)(47), 46.407, 7, subpart 7.5, and 7.503(12)(v) and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 246.407
