C7.4.1. Delivery Term Code (DTC). The Delivery Term Code (DTC) indicates how far, from the source of supply to the final destination, that the Department of Defense (DoD) is responsible to transport a shipment. A purchaser may specify a preferred DTC in the Letter of Request (LOR). See Figure C5.F5., for a complete list of DTCs and their assigned points of delivery. The DTC is also used to determine transportation costs. If a DoD contract has been accepted and awarded to a contractor at a CONUS location and the contractor further subcontracts the work to an OCONUS party, the original DoD contractor is still responsible for movement of the materiel from the OCONUS location to the CONUS location so it can be properly exported from the United States.
C7.4.2. During case development, the Implementation Agency’s (IA) role in determining and assigning the proper DTC to each line on the Letter of Offer and Acceptance (LOA) is critical to successful materiel shipment. In cases when sensitive or classified materials are being transported, IAs should conduct a pre-case transportation assessment to determine transportation and distribution requirements following receipt of a LOR and before issuance of a LOA. Coordination with TRANSCOM may be necessary. Each DTC must be feasible and actionable. Following case implementation assigned DTCs should be updated through an Amendment as required in coordination with the purchaser.
