12.8. Contractor training.

Contractors are authorized to receive training when the course(s) is/are identified in the contract Performance Work Statement (PWS) and is/are required to fulfill the contracted service requirement. Contractors may be trained in rules, practices, procedures, and/or systems that are unique to the employing agency and essential to performance of assigned duties.

a. Reimbursement. Reimbursement for training is based on each specific contract/task order. The contracting officer’s representative (COR) is responsible for determining if the contractor is required to reimburse the government for training. The COR is also responsible for coordinating with the registrar’s office for the contractor’s course seat reservation and training reimbursement costs.

1. When the contract does not specifically state that “training is at government expense,” then the contractor must reimburse the government for the “full pro rata cost of instruction.” Pro rata costs include: indirect costs, asset use fees, and administrative fees. For additional information, see DFAS – Indianapolis (DFAS-IN) Regulation 37-1, chapter 13.

2. Specific course costs are determined by HQ, TRADOC.

Reimbursement fees are collected by the ALU Contract Reimbursement Officer (CRO) and delivered to the CASCOM G-8 Budget Division and are due when the contractor’s training reservation is entered into the ATRRS. The contractor is required to submit a check payable to the “Treasurer of the United States.” The funds will be deposited in the Treasury General Fund as miscellaneous receipts. Treasury General Fund account is established IAW the Government Accountability Office (GAO) requirements as well as CASCOM to handle accounting deposits for training.

b. Scheduling. Contractor attendance in a military course requires a reservation in the ATRRS. The university’s registrar office will schedule contractors for attendance in ALU courses. When coordinating contractor training, the COR will provide a SF 182 or equivalent information for each student. The form must identify the student, course, class number, class dates and be signed by the COR authorizing the training, certifying the training is required in order for the contractor to fulfill a Government contract.
