Part 19-1



[blocks in formation]

a logical, comprehensive statement of USIA procurement policies and procedures.

(b) The Chapter 19 material published in the FEDERAL REGISTER Wwill be published in cumulative form in Chapter 19 of Title 41 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The FEDERAL REGISTER and Title 41 of the Code of Federal Regulations may be purchased from the Superintendent of Documents, Government Printing Office, Washington 25, D.C. § 19-1.106 Exclusions.

(a) Certain policies and procedures within the scope of this Chapter 19 may be excluded when any of the following criteria are applicable:

(1) Subject matter which bears a security classification.

(2) Policies or procedures which are expected to be effective for a period of less than six months.

(3) Policies and procedures which are effective on an experimental basis for a reasonable period.

(4) Policies and procedures pertaining to other functions of USIA as well as to procurement functions and there is need to make the issuance available simultaneously to all USIA employees concerned.

(5) Speed of issuance is essential, numerous changes are required in Chapter 19, and all necessary changes cannot be made promptly.

(b) Procurement procedures and instructions issued in other than the FPR System format under (a) (4) and (5), above, will be codified into Chapter 19 at the earliest practicable date, but in any event not later than six months from date of issuance.

§ 19-1.107


§ 19-1.107-1 General plan.

Chapter 19 is divided into parts, subparts, sections, subsections, and further subdivisions as necessary.

§ 19-1.107-2


(a) Generally, the numbering system used in Chapter 19 conforms to that in the FPR (See § 1-1.007-2). Thus, a particular procurement policy or procedure is identified by the same number in both the FPR and in Chapter 19 except that the first number in the FPR will be 1 rather than 19.

the FPR, the implementing part, subpart, section or subsection of Chapter 19 will be numbered (and captioned) to correspond to the FPR part, subpart, section, or subsection.

(c) Where Chapter 19 supplements the FPR and thus deals with subject matter not contained in the FPR, the numbers in the group 50 through 69 will be assigned to the respective supplementing parts, subparts, or section.

(d) Where the subject matter contained in the part, subpart, section, or subsection of the FPR requires no implementation, Chapter 19 will contain no corresponding part, subpart, section, or subsection. Thus, there may be gaps in the Chapter 19 series of part, subpart, section, or subsection; in such cases, reference must be made to the FPR for policy and procedure applicable to USIA. § 19-1.107-3


(b) Where Chapter 19 implements a part, subpart, section, or subsection of

USIA procurement regulations will be cited in accordance with Federal Register standards approved for the FPR. Thus, this section, when referred to in divisions of the IAPR, should be cited as "§ 19-1.107-3 of this chapter." When this section is referred to formally in official documents, such as legal briefs, it should be cited as "41CFR 19-1.107-3." Any section of the USIA Procurement Regulations may be informally identified, for purposes of brevity, as IAPR followed by the section number; i.e., "IAPR 19-1.107-3."
