As prescribed in 247.271-3(e), when acquiring services for the preparation of personal property for movement or storage, or for performance of intra-city or intra-area movement, use the clause at 252.247-7011, Period of Contract. When the period of performance is less than a calendar year, modify the clause to indicate the beginning and ending dates.  However, the contract period must not end later than December 31 of the year in which the contract is awarded. Revise solicitation provisions and schedules, as appropriate, if using negotiation rather than sealed bidding. Overseas commands, except those in Alaska and Hawaii, may modify these clauses to conform to local practices, laws, and regulations.
