(a)(2)(A) The award date (or the date of execution) is the date the contracting officer signs the award, notice of award, acceptance of proposal, or other contract document. 

(a)(2)(B) The effective date of a contract is the date on which the contracting officer and the contractor agree that the contract goes into effect. This may be the same or later than the award date, but not earlier. The effective date is usually the date on which performance begins, or the date the contractor is authorized to incur costs in preparation for performance. In some cases the effective date may be contingent upon some future occurrence, for example, date of availability of funds or issuance of a notice to proceed.
