A. Purpose

element and must be clearly stated in solicitations and contracts. The 
contracting officer may set forth a required delivery schedule or may

solicitations and contracts a clause substantially the same as either 
FAR 52.211-8, Time of Delivery, or FAR 52.211-9, Desired and Required 
Time of Delivery. The information is needed to assure supplies or 
services are obtained in a timely manner.
