Distinction between subcontract and contract for purchase of goods and services

Question details: 
Distinction between a subcontractor and the purchase of goods and Services: is the crucial point whether or not there is a named/numbered task recorded as part of one of the work packages in the DoW. So is it correct, that depending on the way the text is written, the end result might be a subcontract, or might be a contract for goods/services.
Answer: 

The answer can be found in the Annotated Model Grant Agreement (MGA) under Article 10 (Subcontracting, page 128) and Article 13 (Contracts to purchase goods, works or services, page 119). There is also a table comparing those two options (Article 8 pp 113).
