This NAVFAC EURAFCENT Protocol applies to all contractor calls/visits, personal visits or social calls on command personnel. A telephone call or conference will be treated the same as an in-person visit. Any request for a meeting or visit will be handled the same as an in-person visit, be it PHONCON, videocon, voice-over-internet, etc.
There will be no advantage provided to any company over another during calls or visits. The mere perception of impropriety or favoritism, by providing contractors access more than others, puts the acquisition process at risk.
This protocol was developed to serve the dual interests of providing industry representatives with a fair and equal opportunity to contact this command, and ensuring minimal disruption to the Navy mission.
