To the fullest extent practicable, agencies shall use excess personal property as the first source of supply in fulfilling their requirements and requirements of their cost-type contractors. § 1-5.303 Implementation of policy.
(a) In giving effect to the policy stated in § 1-5.302, agencies should provide that:
(1) Personnel authorized to approve actions for procurement or other acquisition of personal property will make positive efforts to obtain excess before such actions are undertaken.
(2) Personnel mentioned in (1) of this § 1-5.303(a) will receive available information concerning excess personal property from appropriate General Seryices Administration regional offices.
(b) Prior to procurement or other acquisition of property, careful and receptive consideration shall be given to utilization of known usable excess personal property of a similar type, including the possibility of substitution or adaptation of excess items not identical with requested items, whether the excess items are unused, rehabilitated, or in used condition, and regardless of whether the intended acquisition would be from General Services Administration stores stock or from other sources of supply. § 1-5.304 Assistance by General Serv.
ices Administration in filling require
ments from excess. (a) Information regarding the availability of excess personal property may be obtained through the following:
(1) Personal contact with the General Services Administration or the holding installation.
(2) Review of excess personal property catalogs and bulletins circularized by the General Services Administration.
(3) Submission of personal property requirements to the regional offices of the General Services Administration. (GSA Form 1539, Request for Excess Personal Property, is available for this purpose.)
(4) Examination and inspection of reports and samples of excess personal property assembled for this purpose in General Services Administration regional offices.
(b) The General Services Administration will assist agencies in meeting their requirements for property of the types excepted from reporting as excess by $ 101-43.312 of the Federal Property Management Regulations. Federal agencies requiring such property should contact the appropriate GSA regional office. GSA area utilization officers, stationed at military points throughout the United States which generate the largest amounts of excess, are screening and offering for Government use nonreported excess personal property as it becomes available for transfer.

Each order shall be accompanied by a copy of the authorization (unless a copy was previously furnished to the Federal Supply Schedule contractor) and shall contain a statement as follows:
This order is placed pursuant to written authorization from dated -----------
----]. In the event of any inconsistency between the terms and conditions of this order and those of your Federal Supply Schedule contract, the latter will govern.
(b) In the event a Federal Supply Schedule contractor refuses to honor an order placed by a Government contractor in accordance with agency authorization pursuant to this Subpart 1-5.9, the contracting agency shall promptly report the facts and circumstances to the General Services Administration, Federal Supply Service, Office of Supply Management-FF, Washington, D.C. 20405.
§ 1-5.903—2 Orders for GSA stores stock.
(a) Orders placed by Government contractors for GSA stores stock shall be placed in accordance with the authorization, using the FEDSTRIP format in accordance with the provisions of Subpart 101-26.2. Each requisition shall include the address and billing codes indicated in the authorization. When orders are placed on GSA Form 1348m, Single Line Item Requisition System Document (MECHANICAL) (see § 10126.203–1(a) of this title), the statement of authorization required by paragraph (b) of this section shall be placed on the contractor's letterhead and used as a wrapper in submitting the mechanically prepared requisition cards.
(b) The statement of authorization which accompanies the contractor's order or requisition shall be substantially as follows:
This order is placed pursuant to written authorization from ----dated § 1-5.904 Furnishing information to
contractors. Agencies shall assist the contractors which they have authorized to use GSA supply sources to obtain pertinent Federal Supply Schedules and the GSA Stock Catalogs, and shall furnish them with any other desired information. Such schedules and catalogs may be obtained from any GSA regional office. § 1-5.905 Payment for GSA stores stock.
Bills for GSA stores stock are not rendered by GSA until after shipment has been made. Receipt of billing is construed as sufficient evidence of delivery to establish liability and make payment. Accordingly, agencies should direct their contractors to make payments promptly upon receipt of billings (see § 101–26.103 (d) (2) of this title). Subpart 1–5.10—Use of Excess
