This is one of five books which constitute Title 41—Public Contracts and Property Management of the Code of Federal Regulations, revised as of January 1, 1965. These replace the volumes entitled "Title 40—[Vacated; reserved]; Tide 41—Public Contracts, Parts 1-1 to 1-17" and "Title 41— Public Contracts, Part 2-1 to End, Revised as of January 1, 1964," and becomes an integral part of the Code of Federal Regulations.

The text in this revision is derived from the latest text of the rules and regulations, general and permanent in nature, duly promulgated in the Federal Register on or before December 31, 1964. Source materials from which the text is derived are cited with the text and should be consulted to determine the effective date of any given provision. All dates appearing in the source citations are dates of publication in the Federal Register and should not be construed as effective dates.

Title 41 was reorganized, 24 F.R. 10952, December 30, 1959, to provide for the further development of the Federal Procurement Regulations System established March 10, 1959 (24 F.R. 1933), and for the codification of other Government-wide regulations affecting public contracts. Subsequently Title 41 was expanded to include the Federal Property Management System Regulations, 29 F.R. 13251, September 24, 1964.

The Federal Procurement Regulations System (Subtitle A of this title) consists of (1) the procurement policies and procedures for Government agencies prescribed by the Administrator of General Services (Chapter 1— Federal Procurement Regulations), and (2) regulations of various agencies implementing or supplementing the Federal Procurement Regulations (Chapters 2 through 49). In each of Chapters 2 through 49, the first 49 parts are reserved for regulations implementing the Federal Procurement Regulations and numerically keyed thereto; the remaining parts in these chapters will contain regulations supplementing the Federal Procurement Regulations.

Subtitle B (Chapters 50 through 100) consists of Government-wide regulations affecting procurement policies and procedures which are not included in the Federal Procurement Regulations System. Former Chapters II and III of Title 41, containing regulations of the Division of Public Contracts, Department of Labor, and the Committee on Purchases of BlindMade Products, respectively, were redesignated Chapters 50 and 51 and assigned to this subtitle.


The Federal Property Management System Regulations (Subtitle C of

this title) consists of (1) the property management policies and procedures

for Government agencies prescribed by the Administrator of General Serv-

ices (Chapter 101—Federal Property Management Regulations), and (2)

regulations of various agencies implementing or supplementing the Federal

Property Management Regulations (Chapters 102 through 149).

Subtitle D (Chapter 150 to End) will consist of'other provisions relating

to property management.

The numbering system of Title 41 is unique in the Code of Federal Regu-

lations, and is especially designed to permit the keying of similar subject

matter throughout the chapters in Subtitles A and C. Chapters are num-

bered in arabic. Each section number is a combination showing to the

left of the decimal point the chapter and part numbers, separated by a

dash. To the right of the decimal point the subpart, section, and subsec-

tion numbers are indicated in that order. Thus, an agency assigned to

Chapter 2, and wishing to implement the cost-plus-a-fixed-fee contract pro-

visions contained in Chapter 1, Part 1-3, Subpart 1-3.4, section 04, sub-

section 3 of the Federal Procurement Regulations (section 1-3.404-3),

would assign the section number "2-3.404-3" to the implementing


Current regulatory material appearing in the daily issues of the Federal

Register follows the numbering system used herein and serves as a daily

supplement hereto. This book contains the following finding aids; a list

of current CFR volumes; a list of superseded CFR volumes; a table of CFR

titles and chapters; an alphabetical list of CFR subtitles and chapters; and

a table of sections affected which furnishes Federal Register citations to all

changes in Titles 40-41 beginning January 1, 1964, including changes which

are no longer in effect.

A compilation of the list of sections affected for the entire Code of Federa

Regulations from January 1, 1949, through December 31, 1963, is pub

lished in a separate volume entitled "List of Sections Affected, 1949-1963.'

A General Explanation of the Code of Federal Regulations appears i:

the volume containing Titles 1-4, in the General Index volume, and in th

volume entitled "List of Sections Affected, 1949-1963."

This volume is published pursuant to Part 30 of the regulations of th

Administrative Committee of the Federal Register revised August 18, 196

(29 F.R. 11790; 1 CFR Part 30), under the authority contained in sectic
