project boundaries/envelope
Explanation:
Google:
Searched the web for liefergrenze OR liefergrenzen. Results 1 - 30 of about 59. Search took 0.33 seconds.

Google reveals two meanings,
One, which applies to your text, denotes the _project boundaries_ or _…envelope_. It connotes (a) the limit of what is being delivered or contracted for (Leistungsumfang) and (b) the required input/output interfaces that accommodate the project within the larger program.

Erdgas und Trinkwasser – Hausanschluss […] Nachdem der Hausanschluss bis zur Liefergrenze (Hauptabsperreinrichtung) im Gebäude hergestellt wurde, erfolgt die Inneninstallation mit anschließender Inbetriebnahme durch Zählersetzung eines konzessionierten Vertragsinstallationsunternehmens Ihrer Wahl.

Another meaning (not applicable in your text) has the geographic or distance context corresponding to _boundaries of delivery area_, e.g.:
http://europa.eu.int/eur-lex/de/lif/dat/1980/de_380D0182.htm...
Wir liefern ISCAR-Produkte in den Gebieten:
- gesamter linker Niederrhein, einschließlich Großraum Mühlheim und Duisburg
- Großraum Düsseldorf(einschl. Hilden, Langenfeld, Erkrath etc.), sowie
- Großraum Aachen
Bei einer Bestellung von ISCAR-Produkten über unsere o.g. Liefergrenze hinaus, leiten wir die Bestellung an einen Partner-Händler weiter, der ein neues Angebot abgibt.

Thanks Tom -- I decided to use a paraphrase, essentially the same as your explanation of the first meaning. There may be a succinct term for this in English (it's such a useful concept), but I can't find it.
