CIB 89-29: Use of Government Bill of Lading for Transportation of Personal Service Contractor (PSC) Household Effects, Unaccompanied Baggage, and Privately Owned Vehicles
Subject Category: Personal Services Contracts
This CIB supersedes CIB 83-8. It continues to provide procedures and documentation that will extend to PSCs the approximate convenience and benefits provided to direct-hire employees with regard to the shipment of their personal property to and from the cooperating country. The procedures are an alternative to the practice of providing PSCs with substantial cash advances, which incur implicit high interest costs, some financial risk, and the administrative cost of processing the advances through Financial Management and the Treasury.
The attached Contracting Officer Request provides instructions for both outbound and inbound shipments, and the included format is self-explanatory.
