Request To Submit Invoices for Over-Age Firm-Fixed-Price Contracts
Document Number: 2016-22118
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-10-03
Agency: Department of Homeland Security
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) currently has contracts that are considered over-age, as the period of performance or final delivery date of these actions has expired and the time allowed for contract file closeout has elapsed. To clear the backlog of over- age contracts, DHS developed procedures that would enable the Agency to closeout these elapsed actions in an efficient and cost effective manner. These procedures required the Agency to identify those expired contracts that could more easily be closed-out based on certain criteria that would deem them low-risk, such as firm-fixed-price contracts containing no outstanding issues and no invoice or payment activity within the past year. These contracts are listed at https:// dhs.gov/publication/low-risk-closeout. To facilitate the closeout of these actions, DHS requests that contractors with contracts identified on this list submit any outstanding invoices to the cognizant DHS Component contracting activities within 60 days after the publication of this notice.

Finally, this Notice provides instructions for DED-eligible Liberians on how to apply for permission to travel outside the United States during the 18-month DED period. USCIS will issue new employment authorization documents (EADs) with a March 31, 2018 expiration date to Liberians whose DED has been extended under the Presidential Memorandum of September 28, 2016, and who apply for EADs under this extension. Given the timeframes involved with processing EAD applications, DHS recognizes that not all DED- eligible Liberians will receive new EADs before their current EADs expire on September 30, 2016. Accordingly, through this Notice, DHS also automatically extends the validity of DED-related EADs for 6 months, through March 31, 2017, and explains how Liberians covered under DED and their employers may determine which EADs are automatically extended and their impact on Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9) and E-Verify processes.
