Hello, hope everyone is well! A customer requested delivery of lumber directly to the vendor. Lumber was on the contract. After delivery the vendor advised customer they over delivered and need to receive the additional 543 pieces back. Customer didn't believe and did some fact finding. Customer found out that they already used the additional lumber pieces. Customer was then trying to seek a modification for additional materials to include that lumber. The modification request was denied because the contract was over and no modifications to be made. This is was when the additional lumber delivered was discovered. The customer used my Contracting Office to make the original purchase. The customer is not in the same command as my Contracting Office. The additional lumber has been determined to be an unauthorized commitment by the customer. My questions to group is should this ratification come through my contracting office or should it go through their contracting office. Note: there was a contract with lumber on it. The qty received was more than the qty on the contract. My Contracting Office didn't know about the additional delivered lumber until the contract had expired. Also it was using FY14 funds. Thanks for any and all help.
