End Use Certificate (EUC), DLA Form 1822
DLA Form 1822 Instructions
Am I required to complete an End-Use Certificate?
The End-Use Certificate, DLA Form 1822, is a bidding form where you indicate
what your "end use" of the property will be, if you receive an award. It is generally
required for items coded other than Demil A. The catalog entry for that item will tell
you if an end-use certificate is required. The form is required for property that is
controlled. For example, it may require demilitarization by the customer, or an
export license should the customer desire to ship it to another country.
NOTE: The first time you bid on an item requiring end-use certification, a
Trade Security Control check will be processed and can take up to 60 days. The
Sales Contracting Officer (SCO) cannot award the contract until you have been
cleared. During the initial clearance process, you may not be awarded an item for up
to 2 months. Once you have obtained this clearance from Trade Security Controls, it
is generally good for 5 years, but you still have to submit an End-Use Certificate
every time one is required. Once you're cleared, subsequent awards are quicker.
Statement of Intent - DRMS Form 1645 (United States), Foreign
What is the Statement of Intent for and why is it necessary?
The Statement of Intent, (DRMS Form 1645), is used to identify the location where
material is to be delivered after award and to obtain information about that site and
how the material will be used. All destination facilities are reviewed during a pre-
award survey. The Statement of Intent will be closely reviewed during the Pre-Award
Survey. The survey may include requesting additional information from local and
national regulating authorities in addition to a possible on site inspection. The
DLA Disposition Services will not award material until the site
has been approved. Failure to provide requested information may result in no award.
What is a Pre Award Survey?
If you are an apparent high bidder for any paint, oils, fuels, chemicals, batteries,
cylinders, or other related commodities, a pre award onsite inspection of
the destination facility identified on your statement of intent may be required. A
DLA Disposition Services employee, usually from a local DLA Disposition Services site, or authorized representative will
arrange for and visit the destination facility. The purpose of the pre award on site
inspection is to verify that the destination facility and its employees are capable of
safely storing, handling, using and disposing, if applicable, the commodities being
purchased. The decision to conduct a pre award on site inspection is based on
commodity, quantity and intended use of commodities being purchased.
Additionally, depending on the nature of the business, federal, state and local
regulatory agencies may be contacted to inquire about compliance history. Failure to
allow an on site inspection may result in no award.
