Workmanship Standards

General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies Workmanship Requirements (Kilgore, TX location)



GD Mission Systems (GDMS) will pay tariff costs that are invoiced to GDMS only if tariff cost estimates are provided at the time of  quote or a separate written notification has been provided by the supplier to the GDMS Buyer stating tariff costs will be flowed through by the supplier before a purchase order (PO) is issued. Tariff costs must comply with Duty-Free Entry clauses (FAR 52.225-8 or DFARS 252.225-7013) contained in the PO.  Invoiced tariff costs shall not include any price markups, including Overhead, G&A or Profit. 


In order for GDMS to pay any tariff costs associated with our POs, we must be able to validate that the tariffs were incurred on product that was shipped to you to fulfil a GDMS PO.  If you cannot include the tariff costs in your unit price, you must invoice us as a separate line item or separate invoice


In order for the invoice to be paid, it must reflect the PO number and be broken down by PO line number.  If the part number invoiced, does not match the part number on the PO line referenced on the invoice, you must include the part number that incurred the tariff and the quantity.  We need to charge the tariff back to the same account string that incurred the cost. We occasionally receive invoices with no reference to PO numbers and/or line numbers. This is delaying payment to suppliers for these costs.  If the invoice does not contain the information required, it will be rejected and returned.


A copy of your supplier’s commercial invoice and CF7501 (Entry Summary), or equivalent, redacted as appropriate,  must be provided with your invoice to support the tariff costs.  If a sub tier is the actual importer of record, please obtain this supporting documentation from your sub tier supplier and submit it with your invoice.  GDMS reserves the right to request further documentation for the transactions to support how the tariff costs were determined and invoiced.
