mail (email@example.com), or telephonically (1-800-221-3688), followed up in writing by DA Form
2407 or DA Form 5504 from the local WARCO following the discovery of a defect in supplies which
requires Contractor/Vendor repair and/or replacement parts. This shall constitute formal notification of
a warranty claim. The notification shall include all items identified in paragraph 3.b of this Technical

to correct the defect themselves or; (2) to direct the Contractor to correct the defect. Upon completion
of Contractor/Vendor repair, forward completed warranty claims (Information Only) to TACOM.
Additionally, the local WARCO will forward claims to TACOM utilizing DA Form 2407 or DA Form 5504
for any warrantable repairs accomplished by the owning unit which requires Contractor reimbursement
to the Government.

for the maintenance level identified in the Maintenance Allocation Chart (MAC) multiplied by the number
of actual hours incurred, not to exceed the labor hours in the MAC. The Contractor shall ship
replacement parts for Government correction in accordance with paragraph 7.a.
