As prescribed in 1845.107–70(b),

(1) The contracting officer shall insert the clause at 1852.245–71, Installation— Accountable Government Property, in solicitations and contracts when Government property is to be made available to a contractor working on a NASA installation, and the Government will maintain accountability for the property.  The contracting officer shall list in the clause the applicable property user responsibilities.  For purposes of this clause, NASA installations include local off-site buildings owned or leased by NASA.

This Government property is not subject to the clause at 1852.245–71, Installation—Accountable Government Property.  The contracting officer shall address any specific maintenance considerations (e.g., requiring or precluding use of an installation calibration or repair facility) elsewhere in the contract.)


(a)  The Government property described in paragraph (c) of this clause may be made available to the Contractor on a no-charge basis for use in performance of this contract.  This property shall be utilized only within the physical confines of the NASA installation that provided the property unless authorized by the Contracting Officer under (b)(1)(iv).  Under this clause, the Government retains accountability for, and title to, the property, and the Contractor shall comply with the following:

(b)(1)  The official accountable recordkeeping, financial control, and reporting of the property subject to this clause shall be retained by the Government and accomplished within NASA management information systems prescribed by the installation Supply and Equipment Management Officer (SEMO) and Financial Management Officer.  If this contract provides for the Contractor to acquire property, title to which will vest in the Government, the following additional procedures apply:

        (i)  The Contractor’s purchase order shall require the vendor to deliver the property to the installation central receiving area.

        (ii) The Contractor shall furnish a copy of each purchase order, prior to delivery by the vendor, to the installation central receiving area.

        (iii)  The Contractor shall establish a record for Government titled property as required by FAR 52.245-1, as incorporated in this contract, and shall maintain that record until accountability is accepted by the Government.

        (iv)  Contractor use of Government property at an off-site location and off- site subcontractor use requires advance approval of the Contracting Officer and notification of the Industrial Property Officer.  The property shall be considered Government furnished and the Contractor shall assume accountability and financial reporting responsibility.  The Contractor shall establish records and property control procedures and maintain the property in accordance with the requirements of FAR 52.245–1, Government Property (as incorporated in this contract), until its return to the installation.  NASA Procedural Requirements related to property loans shall not apply to offsite use of property by contractors.

    (2)  After transfer of accountability to the Government, the Contractor shall continue to maintain such internal records as are necessary to execute the user responsibilities identified in paragraph (a) of this clause and document the acquisition, billing, and disposition of the property.
