About Our Billing Rates
We fund our investigative mission through fee-for-service fully reimbursable billing rates. We apply case billing rates according to:
- The case type and service type ordered
- The date the complete investigation request is received by DCSA
- The effective published billing rates for that fiscal year
Additional Fees and Adjustments
We may apply additional fees and adjustments depending on any optional extra coverage requested or required expanded coverage in accordance with published billing rates.
Required Forms and Fields
DCSA customer agencies are required to complete an FS Form 7600A and FS Form 7600B to do business with DCSA. These forms record the agreement between the customer agency and DCSA for Intragovernmental Reimbursable, Buy/Sell Activity in accordance with TFM Volume 1, Part 2, Chapter 4700, Appendix 6, Section 9.
In the event that the FS Form 7600B Order Tracking Number (Field 11) is not provided during the initial case submission process and there is uncertainty regarding what Order Number the case submission is associated with, a member of our team will contact the associated customer agency FS Form 7600B points of contact for resolution. We will continue to require other office and financial identifiers within e-QIP to minimize manual corrections, such as the Submitting Office Number (SON), Security Office Identifier (SOI), and Intra-Governmental Payment and Collection (IPAC) Agency Location Code (ALC).
G-Invoicing is the long-term solution for Federal Program Agencies (FPAs) to manage their intragovernmental (IGT) Buy/Sell transactions. DCSA customers that have transitioned to G-Invoicing will be required to adhere to the program requirements established by the Department of Treasury. G‑Invoicing helps (or will help) agencies and their trading partners:
- Negotiate and accept General Terms and Conditions (GT&C) agreements
- Broker orders
- Exchange performance information
- Validate settlement requests through IPAC
