DD Form 882 Report of Inventions and Subcontracts

What Is DD Form 882?

DD Form 882, Report of Inventions and Subcontracts is a form for providing invention reports to a Contracting Officer and reporting of awarded subcontracts with patent rights clauses. Form DD 882 can be used to report both inventions and subcontracts at the same time or solely for reporting subcontracts with patent rights clauses.

The latest release of the form - sometimes incorrectly referred to as the DA Form 882 - was issued by the Department of Defense (DoD) in July 2005 with all previous editions obsolete.

Interim reports must be given at least every 12 months from the first day the contract was won. Final reports are submitted within six months for small business and domestic non-profit companies and within three months for other organizations.

The most recent DD Form 882 fillable version is available for digital filing and download below or can be found through the Executive Services Directorate website.
