3-11. CONTRACTOR'S INSPECTION REPORT
If the contractor was required to perform inspection procedures on his own, a
report of the results of this inspection will accompany the shipment. The report may not
be present if the contractor was not required to perform an inspection prior to delivery.
The inspection report may or may not be on a document with the contractor's letterhead.
This report may be referred to as the CoC. See figure 3-11.
3-12. UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE OR UNITED STATES
DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE CERTIFICATES
Some agencies of the federal government, such as the USDA or USDC, will
inspect products at the contractor's worksite and these same products will be procured
by DPSC. If these agencies have in fact performed any type of inspection (USDA for
meat products, eggs, and fresh fruits and vegetables; USDC for seafood), a certificate
stating what inspection was performed will accompany the shipment. See figure 3-12
for an example of a USDA inspection certificate. See figure 3-13 for an example of a
USDC inspection certificate.
