Preface

This is one of two books which constitute Title 41 of the Code of Federal Regulations, revised as of January 1, 1964. It replaces the volume entitled “Title 40—[Vacated; reserved); Title 41—Public Contracts,” revised as of January 1, 1963, 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, 1963. 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.

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 1Federal 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 99) will consist 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 numbering system of Subtitle A of Title 41 is unique in the Code of Federal Regulations, and is especially designed to permit the keying of similar subject matter throughout the chapters of this subtitle. 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 04, subsection 3 of the Federal Procurement Regulations (section 1–3.404–3), would assign the section number “2–3.404–3” to the implementing provisions.

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 list of sections affected which furnishes FEDERAL REGISTER citations to all changes in Titles 40-41 since January 1, 1949, including changes which are no longer in effect.

This volume is published pursuant to Part 30 of the regulations of the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register revised March 20, 1959 (24 F.R. 2352; 1 CFR Part 30), under the authority contained in section 11 of the Federal Register Act (67 Stat. 388, as amended; 44 U.S.C. 311). The contents of the FEDERAL REGISTER and the Code of Federal Regulations are by law prima facie evidence of the text of the original documents and are required to be judicially noticed (49 Stat. 502, 67 Stat. 388; 44 U.S.C. 307, 311). The approved citation of the Code is "CFR”. Thus the citation "41 CFR 1-1.00” refers to section 1-1.000 of this Title.

D. C. EBERHART January 2, 1964.

Cite this Code CFR

thus: 41 CFR 1-1.000
