The DD Form
448 - Military Interdepartmental Purchase Request (MIPR) is
one of the primary vehicles for funding customer requirements. The
MIPR can be submitted to T-ASA via FAX or by E-mail. When the MIPR
is submitted the DFAS Paying Station address and the Paying Station
DODAAD/DODDAC are required and must be cited in Block 13 of the DD
accepted as Direct Cite Basis (Category II) only, we are not
authorized to accept reimbursable (Category I) MIPRs. Direct Cite
(Category II) acceptance means T-ASA will cite your fund cite
directly on all documents needed to support the fulfillment of the
MIPR. The requestor’s funds stay in the commitment stage until a
copy of the obligating document, in this case, a contract(s) is
received from T-ASA. FUNDS ARE NOT OBLIGATED UNTIL A COMPLETED
CONTRACT IS RECEIVED BY THE PAYINGOFFICE.
The MIPR and
requirements are assigned a T-ASA Project Number and forwarded to
the Technical and Logistics areas for review and acceptance. Based
on T-ASA's acceptance, the project is then established in the
Project Tracking Database. The MIPR Acceptance (DD448-2) is prepared
and faxed back to the sender (Address in Block 8 of the DD448-2).
requirements are then worked within the T-ASA technical and
logistics area, and awarded through T-ASA's Contracting Office.
