ORDER FOR SUBSISTENCE, DEFENSE PERSONNEL SUPPORT CENTER
a. The Order for Subsistence, DPSC Form 300, is used for definite delivery,
other-than-requirements, one-time-only contracts for perishable food items. (An
example, a contract for delivery of beef liver on a particular date.)
b. Figure 3-1 illustrates a DPSC Form 300. The following paragraphs describe
information found on the DPSC Form 300.
(1) REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS NO. The Request for Proposals (RFP)
number, or solicitation number, is the number used to identify the correct solicitation
documents sent to potential bidders for the product stated in the Order for Subsistence.
In this case, the RFP or solicitation number is DLA 13H-86-R-0902
(2) Block 2, ISSUED BY, contains the name and address of the agency that
issued the Order for Subsistence (Defense Personnel Support Center, Philadelphia,
(3) Block 3, VENDOR, contains the name and address of the vendor
(contractor/supplier) who has been awarded the Order for Subsistence (J. McMaster
Company, 1235 W. George St., Chicago, Illinois 60657).
(4) Block 6, TO, contains the address to which the product is to be
delivered. In this example, we find the phrase "SHOWN HEREIN." When this phrase
appears, refer to block 19 (Scobey Cold Storage Company, 1155 Coliseum Road, San
Antonio, Texas 78208).
(5) Block 9, CONTRACT NUMBER, contains the contract number. The first
three letters (DLA) indicate the contract has been awarded by the DLA, the parent
organization of DPSC. The next two numbers and letter 13H denote the DPSC SPE
that awarded the contract. In this case, 13H denotes HQ DPSC, Philadelphia. The next
two numbers 86 indicate the fiscal year. The next letter (C) indicates the type of
procurement document. The final four letters and/or numbers (N766) are the contract
(6) Block 15, DELIVERY DATE(s), contains the delivery date, the date on
which the vendor must deliver the product. Again, in this example, you will see the
phrase "SHOWN HEREIN." This should direct you to block 19 to locate the delivery
date (which is 8 July l986). Note that together with the delivery point address a time
limit can be imposed on the vendor, such as the product must be delivered not later
than (NLT) 2 P.M.
