As prescribed in 245.107 Contract clauses.(4), use the following clause:


(a) Definitions. As used in this clause—

“As is” means that the Government makes no warranty with respect to the serviceability and/or suitability of the Government property for contract performance and that the Government will not pay for any repairs, replacement, and/or refurbishment of the property.

“Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) code” means—

(1) An identifier assigned to entities located in the United States or its outlying areas by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) Branch to identify a commercial or government entity by unique location; or

(2) An identifier assigned by a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) or by the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) to entities located outside the United States and its outlying areas that the DLA Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) Branch records and maintains in the CAGE master file. This type of code is known as a NATO CAGE (NCAGE) code.

“Contractor-acquired property,” “contractor inventory,” “Government property,” “Government-furnished property,” and “loss of Government property” have the meanings given in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 52.245-1, Government Property, clause of this contract.

“Demilitarization” means the act of eliminating the functional capabilities and inherent military design features from DoD personal property. Methods and degree range from removal and destruction of critical features to total destruction by cutting, tearing, crushing, mangling, shredding, melting, burning, etc.

“Export-controlled items” has the meaning given in the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 252.225-7048 Export-Controlled Items., Export-Controlled Items, clause of this contract.

“Item unique identification” means a system of assigning, reporting, and marking DoD property with unique item identifiers that have machine-readable data elements to distinguish an item from all other like and unlike items.

“Reparable item” means an item, typically in unserviceable condition, furnished to the contractor for maintenance, repair, modification, or overhaul.

“Scrap” means property that has no value except for its basic material content. For purposes of demilitarization, scrap is defined as recyclable waste and discarded materials derived from items that have been rendered useless beyond repair, rehabilitation, or restoration such that the item’s original identity, utility, form, fit, and function have been destroyed. Items can be classified as scrap if processed by cutting, tearing, crushing, mangling, shredding, or melting. Intact or recognizable components and parts are not “scrap.”
