(a) (1) The commander or deputy commander of a base, division, wing, etc., and, in the case of AFLC activities, the Director of Procurement and Production (or other comparable official) will review and sign the request for designation of a contracting officer. In the case of AFSC activities the request for designation of a contracting officer will be reviewed and signed by the Director or Chief of Procurement and Production (or equivalent); however, if this individual is the designating authority, the request will be reviewed and signed by the Officer (or civilian) immediately subordinate to him. Chief of the USAFE procurement centers will sign such requests for officers serving within the USAFE procurement centers. The request will include:

(i) A résumé of his qualifications by the applicant.

(ii) A statement by the person signing the request that the qualifications contained in the résumé were verified against the applicant's personnel file.

(iii) If the designee is not an employee of the requesting activity and his qualifications are known, a statement that the designee is qualified.

(iv) If the designee is not an employee of the requesting activity and his qualifications are not known, a summary of an interview of the designee by the chief or deputy chief of the procurement activity. The summary will include a statement that the designee is qualified. If the designee is located at a distance which makes it impractical and uneconomical to conduct an interview, this requirement will be waived. Justification for not having an interview will be included. However, the statement that the designee is qualified must still be made.
