A Technical Representative (Tech Rep) is an individual at the Lab who oversees the technical aspects of a subcontract and is responsible for division closeout activities.
The ePro requisition Technical Representative field is required for all requisitions that have a service-related Item Category except "Services Not Otherwise Listed." Naming a Tech Rep is optional for other Item Categories although a Tech Rep should be named for other purchases that are complex in nature.
Tech Reps can be involved with the following activities:
Define the technical requirements of the subcontract.
Provide technical direction for the subcontract.
Work with Procurement to determine when a subcontract modification is required and participate in negotiating subcontract changes.
Review and approve all documentation produced or used in subcontract performance.

Provide Site Access for subcontractors.
Assist in managing Government property.
Work with the payment approver (certifier) to approve invoices.
