Firm Fixed Price (FFP) Closeout Checklist


Once a contract is physically complete and has successfully moved to Section 2, the completion of the Contract Closeout Checklist (DD Form 1597) is required to ensure all applicable closeout administrative actions take place. This checklist outlines the actions that must be completed for a FFP contract closeout.


The purpose of this checklist is to ensure all closeout actions associated with FFP contracts have been addressed and documented before the ACO begins the process to close the contract in Mechanization of Contract Administration Services (MOCAS). The completion of the checklist is required as it is saved in the official contract file once completed and signed.


Use this checklist with the FFP Closeout Job Aid to assist with the steps to close out FFP contracts. Once all required closeout actions have been completed and the checklist has been filled out, printed, and signed, the Administrative Contracting Officer (ACO) should begin the steps to close the contract in MOCAS manually or by using the MCC (MOCAS Contract Closeout) e-tool. Once the contract is closed manually or by using the MCC e-tool, the ACO will upload the signed checklist into the official contract file.

A job aid on FFP Closeout is also available using the link available. JA-02: Firm Fixed Price (FFP) Closeout Interactive Job Aid.
