Subpart 570.8–Forms Used for

Contracting for Leasehold Interests in Real Property

(25) 552.270-41 Acceptance of Space.

(b) The contracting officer shall insert the clause at 552.270–22, Liquidated Damages, in solicitations and contracts for leasehold interests in real property when there is a critical requirement that the delivery date be met and an actual cost cannot be established for the loss to the Government resulting from late delivery.

570.801 Standard forms.

Standard Form 2, U.S. Government Lease for Real Property, should be used to award leases unless GSA Form 3626 is used. When the Standard Form 2 is used, reference to the Standard Form 2-A in paragraph 7 must be deleted.

570.802 GSA forms.

570.704 Use of provisions and clauses.

The omission of any provision or clause when its prescription requires its use constitutes a deviation which must be approved under subpart 501.4. Approval may be granted to deviate from provisions or clauses that are mandated by statute (e.g., GSAR 552.203–5, Covenant Against Contingent Fees, FAR 52.215-2, Audit and Records—Negotiation, etc.) in order to modify the language of the provision or clause, when permitted by the statute. However, the statutory provisions and clauses may not be omitted from the SFO unless the statute provides for waiving the requirements of the provision or clause. Also, certain clauses required by non-GSA regulations require approval of the issuing agency before the contracting officer can delete or modify them (e.g., 52.222–26, Equal Opportunity; 52.222–35, Affirmative Action for Disabled Veterans and Veterans of the Vietnam Era; and 52.222-36 Affirmative Action for Handicapped Workers, require the approval of the Department of Labor's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs before they can be deleted from or modified in the SFO or lease).

(a) The GSA Form 3626, U.S. Government Lease for Real Property (Short Form), may be used to award leases when the simplified leasing procedures in 570.2 are used or when the Contracting Officer finds its use to be advantageous.

(b) GSA Form 276, Supplemental Lease Agreement, should be used to amend existing leases that involve the acquisition of additional space or partial release of space, revisions in the terms of a lease, restoration settlements, and alterations.

(c) GSA Form 1364, Proposal To Lease Space to the United States of America, may be used to obtain offers from prospective offerors.

Subpart 601.3-Agency Acquisition Regulations

amended (22 U.S.C. 4308), or the Foreign Service Buildings Act of 1926, as amended (22 U.S.C. 292 et seq.).

(b) At posts where Joint Administrative Offices have been formed, the FAR and the DOSAR apply to all Agency for International Development (AID) administrative and technical support acquisitions, except in those areas which have been exempted by the cognizant administrative office.

(53 FR 26159, July 11, 1988, as amended at 59 FR 66751, Dec. 28, 1994]

601.303 Publication and codification.

601.301 Policy.

(a)(1) The Assistant Secretary of State for Administration is the agency head for the purposes of FAR 1.301 (see Delegation of Authority No. 120 (34 FR 18095, October 30, 1969), as amended by Delegation of Authority No. 120-4 (59 FR 38022, July 26, 1994)). Under Delegation of Authority No. 120-5 (59 FR 62771, December 6, 1994), the Assistant Secretary of State for Administration redelegated to the Procurement Executive the authority to prescribe, promulgate, and amend DOS acquisition policies, rules, and regulations.

(2) The Department's procurement directives system consists of the following components:

(i) The DOSAR;

(ii) Procurement Policy Directives (PPDs), which provide basic policy or procedural guidance and direction. PPDs are issued on an interim basis, and are subsequently incorporated into the next revision of the DOSAR; and

(iii) Procurement Information Bulletins, which provide general information on topics of interest to contracting personnel.

(b) The Department of State Acquisition Regulation (DOSAR) is prescribed under the authority of 22 U.S.C. 2658 and 40 U.S.C. 486(c).

(c) The DOSAR implements and supplements the FAR.

(a) The DOSAR is issued as Chapter 6 of Title 48, Code of Federal Regulations. The DOSAR is established as Chapter 6 of the Federal Acquisition Regulations System. The DOSAR is divided into the same parts, subparts, sections, subsections, and paragraphs as is the FAR. However, when the FAR coverage is adequate by itself there will be no corresponding DOSAR Coverage. Where the DOSAR implements a specific part, subpart, section, or subsection of the FAR, the DOSAR Coverage is numbered and titled to correspond to the appropriate FAR number and title, except that the DOSAR number will include a 6 or 60 such that there will always be three numbers to the left of the decimal. For example, the DOSAR implementation of FAR 14.1 is shown as 614.1 and the DOSAR implementation of FAR 1.301 is shown as 601.301. Materials that supplement the FAR are assigned the numbers 70 and up. For example, DOSAR requires additional definitions than those used in FAR; this supplementary material is provided in 602.101–70.

(b) The DOSAR and its revisions are published in the FEDERAL REGISTER and in the Code of Federal Regulations, both of which may be purchased from the Superintendent of Documents, Government Printing Office, Washington, DC 20402.

(c) The DOSAR shall be referenced in the same manner as described at FAR 1.104–2(c).

[59 FR 66751, Dec. 28, 1994]

601.302 Limitations.

(a) The FAR and the DOSAR apply to all DOS acquisitions of personal property and services, including construction and leases of real and personal property, both within and outside the United States, unless expressly excluded by this subpart, or exempt from the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949, as amended (40 U.S.C. 474(7)), or undertaken pursuant to section 208 of the State Department Basic Authorities Act of 1956, as

(53 FR 26159, July 11, 1988, as amended at 59 FR 66751, Dec. 28, 1994]
