When submitting an invoice for payment, only one original of the Contractor's Invoice and the accompanying
Contract Performance Statement shall be submitted to the attention of Code 02AE. Invoices can be either
mailed in or faxed. A copy should be retained by the A/E. The A/E may invoice monthly or at longer intervals,

Government retentions are not automatically disbursed.
Invoices are to be submitted in accordance with the instructions found in Appendix VI. Invoices that are not

Invoices for Indefinite Quantity Contracts shall be submitted separately for each individual delivery/task
order. The invoice shall contain the delivery/task number assigned to that project. The A/E shall invoice

Upon receipt of a properly submitted invoice, Code 02AE initiates action to the appropriate technical
representative (AIC/EIC, ROICC or 05) for validation that the work being invoiced for has been completed

for payment. In the event that payment has not been approved or not approved in full by the technical
representative, notification with justification of payment denial will be provided to the A/E.
The entire invoice process has a 30 calendar day allowance for completion beginning with the date a properly
