title A–Federal Procurement Regulations System, Subtitle B—Other Provisions

Relating to Public Contracts and Subtitle C-Federal Property Management

Regulations System. Subtitle D is reserved for other provisions relating to property


The Federal procurement regulations in Chapter 1 of Subtitle A are those

government-wide procurement regulations issued by the General Services Ad-

ministration. In Chapters 2 through 49 of Subtitle A are procurement regulations

issued by individual government agencies. The first 49 parts in each of Chapters

2 through 49 are reserved for agency regulations implementing the Federal pro-

curement regulations in Chapter 1 and are numerically keyed to them. The

remaining parts in Chapters 2 through 49 contain agency regulations supplementing

the Federal procurement regulations.

Other government-wide procurement regulations relating to public contracts
appear in Chapters 50 through 100, Subtitle B.

The Federal property management regulations in Chapter 101 of Subtitle C

are government-wide property management regulations issued by the General

Services Administration. In the remaining chapters of Subtitle C are the imple-

menting and supplementing property management regulations issued by individual

Government agencies. Those regulations which implement Chapter 101 are

numerically keyed to it.


The numbering system of Title 41 differs from that used for other titles of the
Code of Federal Regulations. The numbering system is especially designed to
permit the keying of agency regulations to government-wide regulations in Sub-
titles A and C which are issued by the General Services Administration. Chapters
are numbered 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 subsection numbers are
indicated in that order. Thus, an agency assigned to Chapter 2, and wishing to
implement the cost-plus-a-fixed-fee contract provisions contained in Chapter 1,
Part 1-3, Subpart 1-3.4, section 05, subsection 5 of the Federal Procurement
Regulations (§ 1-3.405-5), would assign the section number “g 2–3.405-5” to the
implementing provisions.

Where material in the Federal Procurement Regulations (FPR) requires no
implementation or deviation, there is no corresponding number in the agency
regulations. Thus, there may be gaps in the sequence of numbers where the FPR,
as written, are applicable to agency procurement.

Title 41 is composed of nine volumes. The chapters in these volumes are arranged

as follows: Chapters 1-2, Chapters 3–6, Chapter 7, Chapter 8, Chapter 9,

Chapters 10–17, Chapter 18, Chapters 19–100, and Chapter 101 to end.

The Code of Federal Regulations is published under the editorial direction of
Robert E. Lewis, assisted by Pearl B. Einhorn. For this volume, Donna Rickett was
Chief Editor, and William M. Short, Associate Editor.
