§ 1-4.400 Scope of subpart.
This subpart prescribes policies and procedures for economical and efficient procurement of public utility services by executive agencies. $ 1-4.401 Definition.
As used in this Subpart 1-4.4, "utility services" include all utility services (except telecommunications services), such as electricity, gas, steam, water, and sewerage, including facilities on both sides of the delivery point for the supply of such services. 81-4.402 Applicability.
(a) The provisions of this Subpart 14.4 apply to the procurement of utility services by executive agencies within the United States and its possessions and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
(b) The Statement of Areas of Understanding between the Department of Defense and General Services Administration in the Matter of Procurement of Utility Services, as amended (15 FR 8227, 22 FR 871), shall govern the procurement of utility services by the Department of Defense.
(c) The provisions of this Subpart 14.4 do not apply to: (1) Utility services sistance from the Federal Supply Service of GSA in Washington, D.C., at the address listed below in § 1-4.405, or in the nearest of the ten GSA regional offices through the Federal Supply Service Regional Commission
(31 FR 16417, Dec. 23, 1966, as amended at 40 FR 44139, Sept. 25, 1975)
produced, distributed, or sold by a Federal agency (other than consolidated purchase, joint use, or crossservice by one agency for another agency); or (2) utility services (other than those required for administrative purposes) obtained by purchase, exchange, or otherwise by Federal power or water marketing agencies as a direct incident to such agency's marketing or distribution program.
(d) GSA will, upon request, furnish the services provided for in this Subpart 1-4.4 to any other Federal agency, mixed-ownership Government corporation the District of Columbia, the Senate, the House of Representatives, or the Architect of the Capitol and any activity under his direction. § 1-4.403 Utility bills rendered to execu
tive agencies. Executive agencies shall notify the utility suppliers with which they do business to provide GSA from time to time, upon the request of GSA to the supplier, with duplicate copies of bills rendered to the individual agencies for utility services. The particular billing period will be mutually agreed upon between GSA and the supplier.
§ 1-4.405 Submission of information.
All information required by GSA under this Subpart 1-4.4, except where otherwise specified, shall be addressed to the General Services Administration, Federal Supply Service, Public Utilities Management Division, Washington, D.C. 20406. (40 FR 44139, Sept. 25, 1975) § 1-4.406 Procurement policy and regula
tions. § 1-4.406-1 Policy.
It shall be the policy of executive agencies to obtain required utility services from sources of supply which are most advantageous to the Government in terms of economy, efficiency, or service, after investigating all appropriate sources. The supplier of a utility service is usually the sole source thereof. When more than one source of supply is available, the service may also be procured by negotiation since formal advertising is usually not feasible and practicable (see $ $ 13.101 (a), (d); 1-3.202; 1-3.203; 1-3.210; and Subpart 1-3.3 of this chapter). § 1-4.406-2 Agency supply arrangements.
In implementing the policy state § 1-4.406-1, use shall be made by agencies of: (a) GSA areawide contracts (§ 1-4.407); (b) GSA long-term contracts (§ 1-4.408); and (c) consolidated purchase, joint use, or cross-service by one agency for another agency (§ 14.409).
§ 1-4.404 GSA assistance.
(a) The Congress and the President, in the declaration of policy in the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949, stated an intent to provide for the Government an economical and efficient system for, among other things, the procurement of nonpersonal services, including contracting for and management of public utility services (40 U.S.C. 471). In order to implement this policy, GSA has established an experienced staff of utilities technical specialists and engi. neers, available to all agencies, to provide the necessary capabilities to facilitate more economical and efficient procurement and management of public utility services by Federal agencies.
(b) Agencies not having personnel technically qualified to deal with spe cialized utilities problems and requiring GSA technical assistance, and other agencies having technically qualified personnel but desiring GSA consulting assistance should obtain as
§ 1-4.407 GSA areawide contracts.
(a) GSA enters into areawide contracts with various utility suppliers for the furnishing of utility services to Federal agencies located within the service areas of such suppliers. GSA areawide contracts provide that the utility supplier, upon execution of a
