§ 5C-1.102 Establishment of Chapter

5C, General Services Administration

Procurement Regulations. This Chapter 5C of the GSPR is prescribed by the Commissioner, Defense Materials Service, and is established to provide all DMS activities with additional uniform operating policies and procedures applicable to the procurement of personal property and nonpersonal services. § 5C-1.103 Relationship of Chapter 5C

to the FPR and Chapter 5, GSPR. (a) Chapter 5C implements and supplements the FPR and Chapter 5, GSPR. Implementing material is that which expands upon related FPR or Chapter 5 material. Supplementing material is that for which there is no counterpart in the FPR or Chapter 5.

(b) Material published in the FPR or Chapter 5 becomes effective throughout DMS upon the effective date of the particular FPR or Chapter 5 material. Such material will not be repeated, paraphrased, or restated in Chapter 5C. Therefore, all three must be consulted to obtain comprehensive coverage of DMS-wide procurement operating policies and procedures.

(c) Material in Chapter 5C implements and supplements but does not supersede the FPR or Chapter 5, unless a deviation has been authorized and the deviation is explicitly referenced. In cases of other conflict or when Chapter 5C contains no related material implementing the FPR or Chapter 5, the FPR or Chapter 5 will govern.

AUTHORITY: The provisions of this part 5C-1 issued under sec. 205(C), 63 Stat. 390, 40 U.S.C. 486(c); and 41 CFR 5-1.101(c), 28 F.R. 4559.

SOURCE: The provisions of this part 5C-1 appear at 28 F.R. 7836, Aug. 1, 1963.

$ 5C-1.000 Scope of part.

This part describes the method and procedures by which the Defense Materials Service (DMS) implements and supplements the Government-wide Federal Procurement Regulations (Chapter 1 of Title 41, Code of Federal Regulations) and the GSA-wide procurement policies and procedures (Chapter 5 of the General Services Administration Procurement Regulations; Chapter 5 of Title 41, Code of Federal Regulations).

Subpart 5C-1.1- Introduction $ 5C-1.101 Scope of subpart.

This subpart establishes Chapter 5C of the General Services Administration Procurement Regulations (41 CFR 5C); states its relationship to the Federal Procurement Regulations (FPR) and Chapter 5 of the General Services Administration Procurement Regulations (GSPR); and sets forth other introductory information.

$ 50-1.104 Applicability.

Chapter 5C applies to all purchases and contracts made by DMS for the procurement of personal property and nonpersonal services. S 50-1.105 Exclusions.

(a) Certain DMS procurement policies and procedures within the scope of this chapter may nevertheless be excluded from it when there is justification. These exclusions include the following categories:

(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 or procedures which are effective on an experimental basis for a reasonable period.

(4) Policies or procedures pertaining to other functions of DMS as well as to procurement functions where the issuance should be made available simultaneously to all DMS employees concerned.

(5) Where speed of issuance is essential and numerous changes are required in Chapter 5C, which changes cannot be made promptly.

(b) Procurement policies and procedures issued in other than the FPR System format under paragraphs (a) (4) and (5) of this section will be codified into Chapter 5C at the earliest practicable date, but in any event not later than six months from date of issuance. $ 50-1.106 Method of issuance.

(a) All Chapter 5C material deemed necessary to enable business concerns, and others interested, to understand DMS procurement policies and procedures will be published in the FEDERAL REGISTER. Other related material also may be published in the FEDERAL REGISTER when its inclusion will provide a logical, comprehensive statement of DMS procurement policies and procedures.

subpart, section, or subsection of Chapter 5C will be numbered (and captioned) to correspond to the FPR or the Chapter 5 part, subpart, section, or subsection.

(c) Where Chapter 5C supplements the FPR or Chapter 5 and thus deals with subject matter not contained in the FPR or Chapter 5, the numbers in the group 70 through 89 will be assigned to the respective supplementing parts, subparts, sections, or subsections.

(d) Where the subject matter contained in a part, subpart, section, or subsection of the FPR or Chapter 5 requires no implementation, Chapter 5C will contain no corresponding part, subpart, section, or subsection number. Thus, there may be gaps in the Chapter 5C series of part, subpart, section, or subseciion numbers. In such cases, reference must be made to the FPR and Chapter 5 for policy and procedure applicable throughout DMS. § 56-1.107–3 Cross-references.

(a) Within Chapter 5C, cross-references to the FPR and Chapter 5 will be made in the same manner as used within the FPR. Illustrations of cross-references to Chapter 5 are:

(1) Part 5–3.
(2) Subpart 5–3.1.
(3) $ 5-3.413-5.

(b) Within Chapter 5C, cross-references to parts, subparts, and sections will be made in a manner generally similar to that used in making cross-references to the FPR. For example, this paragraph would be referenced as “S 5C1.107–3(b)." $ 5C-1.108 Citation.

(a) Citation in formal documents, such as legal briefs, shall give the number of the part, subpart, or section of Chapter 5C, following the words “General Services Administration Procurement Regulations" and shall include an appropriate reference to “41 CFR where the material has been published in the FEDERAL REGISTER.

(b) For brevity, any section of Chapter 5C may be informally identified as “GSPR,” followed by the section number. For example, this paragraph could be identified in a memorandum as “GSPR 5C-1.108(b).” $ 50-1.109 Deviation.

(a) The term "deviation," as used in this Chapter 5C, is defined in the same manner as described in § 1-1.009–1.

(b) GSPR Chapter 5C material published in the FEDERAL REGISTER will be published in cumulative form in Chapter 5C of Title 41 of the Code of Federal Regulations (41 CFR Ch. 5C). 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. $ 50-1.107 Arrangement. $ 50-1.107-1 General plan.

Chapter 5C is divided into parts, subparts, sections, subsections, and further subdivisions as required. $ 5C-1.107–2 Numbering.

(a) Generally, the numbering system used in Chapter 5C conforms to that of the FPR (see § 1-1.007-2). Thus, a particular procurement policy or procedure is identified by the same number in both the FPR, Chapter 5, and Chapter 5C, except that the first digit of the number is either 1,5, or 5C.

(b) Where Chapter 5C implements a part, subpart, section, or subsection of the FPR or Chapter 5, the implementing part,
