Before you take your equipment to a dealer for repair, whether or not it was necessary for you to go through
the NMP (TARCOM), check with your local procurement office to see if a funds commitment document is needed.
Sometimes, even though the majority of the repairs are covered by the warranty, there may be a small charge for normal
maintenance costs, i.e., oil filters, oil, etc. Further, the cause of damage could be determined by the dealer to be directly
related to "operator abuse." In that case, the Government may be obligated to pay for teardown services even if the
repairs are no longer desired, or for the complete cost if repairs are to be completed by the dealer.
