Battle Drill 22: Process (P2P) Outbound Reimbursable MIPR
An Outbound reimbursable agreement is any written agreement whereby the performer, agrees to provide goods or services to the requestor in return for reimbursement of costs incurred. In this document, the performer is defined as the Army activity supplying the goods or services. The requestor is defined as the department, agency, or commercial entity requisitioning the goods or services.
The legal authority for the Army and other federal entities to enter into reimbursable agreements is derived from the Economy Act of 1932. This Act established the following rules for reimbursable agreements: the amounts must be available, it must be in the best interest of the United States Government, the performing agency must be able to provide or procure by contract the goods or services, and the ordering federal entity must be unable to procure the goods or services conveniently or cheaply from a commercial enterprise.
The first step is to create an Outbound MIPR PR in GFEBS to request goods and/or services. The MIPR PR contains a description or the scope of the desired goods and services needed, along with the specific quantities and associated dollars for a specified period of performance.
