Subpart A-Introduction § 1001.101 Purpose of subchapter.
The Air Force Procurement Instruction (AFPI) is issued by the Commander, AFLC by authority of the Secretary of the Air Force, delegated through the Director of Procurement Policy (AFSPP), DCS/S&L, Hq USAF. It implements the Armed Services Procurement Regulation (ASPR) (Subchapter A, Chapter 1 of this title) and establishes for the Air Force uniform policies and procedures for the procurement of supplies and services under the authority of
Chapter 137, Title 10 of the United States Code or other laws. [28 F.R. 9579, Aug. 31, 1963, as amended at 31 F.R. 2681, Feb. 12, 1966) $ 1001.102 Applicability of subchapter.
This subchapter applies to all procurements of supplies or services which obligate appropriated funds (including contract authorizations) and procurements obligating nonappropriated funds for construction and architect engineer requirements according to Subpart XX, Part 1004 of this subchapter. If a particular part, subpart, or section has a limited application, it will so state. [31 F.R. 2682, Feb. 12, 1966)
1001.103 Arrangement of subchapter. [27 F.R. 9913, Oct. 9, 1962] & 1001.103–1 General plan.
The organization and numbering system followed in this subchapter is the same as in Subchapter A, Chapter I of this title. [27 F.R. 9913, Oct. 9, 1962] $ 1001.103—2 Numbering.
Sections, subparts, or parts of this subchapter bearing numbers identical to those appearing in Subchapter A, Chapter 1 of this title implement the sections, subparts and parts in Subchapter A, Chapter 1 of this title.
(a) If it is necessary to implement Subchapter A, Chapter 1 of this title, but there is no appropriate heading, the material may be added to the AFPI section as the section number plus point fifty; e.g. $ 1001.109–50.
(b) First reference should always be made to Subchapter A, Chapter 1 of this title, notwithstanding any implementation or lack thereof in this subchapter. If a section in Subchapter A, Chapter 1 of this title requires no implementation, the section identification and title will not be shown in this subchapter.
(c) If a section in this subchapter does not implement a specific section in Subchapter A, Chapter 1 of this title but pertains to a general subject covered in a subpart of Subchapter A, Chapter 1 of this title, the section in this subchapter will be numbered consecutively starting with the particular subpart number plus fifty; e.g. $ 1001.650.
(d) Additional parts and subparts may be added to this subchapter covering subjects not treated in Subchapter A, Chapter 1 of this title. [28 F.R. 2270, Mar. 8, 1968]
$ 1001.103–5 Dating of contract clauses.
The same method used for identifying clauses in Subchapter A, Chapter I of this title as prescribed in § 1.103–5 of this title will be used for identifying clauses in this subchapter. (27 F.R. 9913, Oct. 9, 1962) & 1001.104 Content and control of sub
chapter. (a) Content. This subchapter will contain all the policies, procedures, and instructions authorized under the provisions of $ 1.108 of this title. When a section in Subchapter A, Chapter 1 of this title contains “in accordance with departmental procedures" it will be necessary that AFPI be implemented.
(b) Control. (1) All amendments to this subchapter (except those of an editorial nature, i.e., spelling corrections, numbering according to the AFPI convention, cross-referencing, etc., or redesignation by AFLC or AFSC of offices within the command responsible for specific actions) will be directed for preparation and/or publication by means of a Controlled Letter (CL) issued by the Directorate of Procurement Policy (AFSPP), DCS/S&L, Hą USAF. The Controlled Letter will be prepared by the AFSPP Division or Office designated as Responsible Office for the section, subpart, or part and will be signed by the Chief or Deputy. Controlled Letters will be numbered consecutively for each calendar year, beginning with No. 1 (for example, the first such letter issued in January 1965 was numbered 65–1). When necessary, interim instructions may be forwarded by teletype to be superseded immediately by a Controlled Letter, provided the teletype cites the number assigned to the Controlled Letter. Teletypes may also contain the statement "coordination waived.” See $ 1001.105 (a) (3). Instructions for amendments of this subchapter will not be issued orally.
(2) The Directorate of Procurement Policy (AFSPP), DCS/S&L, Hq USAF, is the Responsible Office (RO) for all of this subchapter. AFLC and AFSC have been designated as office of primary responsibility (OPR) or office of collateral responsibility (OCR) for each section, subpart or part of this subchapter. Shift of OPR or OCR responsibility between AFLC and AFSC will be made only after agreement between the commands and approval for change in a CL.
(c) AFPI Control Offices. (1) A cen. tral point of contact within Hq USAF, AFLC, and AFSC has been designated as AFPI Control Office (CO) on matters covered in this subchapter. The CO offices are: Hq USAF-AFSPP-S. AFLC-MCPO, Wright-Patterson AFB. AFSC-SCK-2, Andrews AFB.
(2) Correspondence to Hq USAF which refers to a specific Controlled Letter or AFPI content and control in genera
should be directed to AFSPP_S: all other matters concerning this subchapter should be directed to the appropriate AFSPP Responsible Office.
(3) Correspondence to AFLC and AFSC concerning Controlled Letters or other AFPI amendment matters should be directed to the command AFPI Control Office.
(d) Publication control. The Policy Control Office (MCPO), Hạ AFLC, is the activity responsible for editing and preparing AFPI copy for submission to the printer, preparing the Notes and Filing Instructions to be issued with each revision, reviewing and approving galley proofs, and for maintaining necessary records. (31 F.R. 2682, Feb. 12, 1966] & 1001.105 Amendment of AFPI and
ASPR. (a) Amendments initiated by Hq USAF. (1) New or amended procurement policies and procedures formulated by the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of the Air Force, and Hq USAF will be directed for implementation in AFPI by a controlled letter issued by AFSPP.
(2) Controlled letters which contain the language to be published in AFPI will be forwarded to the AFPI control office of the command assigned OPR for the paragraph, part, or section with a request for publication. The OPR will effect the necessary coordination, including that of the OCRs; and submit the request to AFLC (MCPO) for publication. Where sufficient priority exists; i.e., revisions due to revised statutes, directed by higher authority, etc., the controlled letter may waive further coordination. In such cases the controlled letter will have attached a proposed AFPC prepared in proper format and will state "coordination waived” and will be sent to MCPO for publication without further coordination.
(3) Controlled letters which request development of AFPI language necessary to implement announced policies and procedures will be forwarded to the AFPI control office of the command assigned OPR for the paragraph, part, or section. The OPR will prepare the implementing coverage, effect necessary coordination (including OCR) and transmit the draft through the command AFPI control office to AFSPP-S for Hq USAF review, approval, and direction for publication. The letter of transmittal will have attached or contain: (i) The original and three copies of the proposed draft, double spaced; (ii) evidence of coordination or decision by proper authority; (iii) explanation of the change for inclusion in the AFPI Notes and Filing Instructions; and (iv) the controlled letter number. Upon approval by Hą USAF, the draft with controlled letter will be forwarded to the AFPI control office of the command assigned OPR, with a copy to the other command AFPI control office.
(4) A copy of each controlled letter issued by Hq USAF will be forwarded to the following addresses: AFLC (MCPO). AFSC (SCK-2).
(b) Amendments recommended by AFLC and AFSC. (1) All amendments to AFPI recommended by AFLC and AFSC will be forwarded by the AFPI control office of the command assigned OPR for the paragraph, part, or section to the AFSPP responsible office for review, approval, and direction for publication in a controlled letter. The command AFPI control office will assure that such actions have been fully coordinated and that letters of transmittal have attached or contain: (i) The original and three copies of the proposed draft, double spaced; (ii) evidence of coordination or decision by proper authority; and (iii) explanation of the change for inclusion in the AFPI Notes and Filing Instructions. Upon approval by Hq USAF, the draft will be forwarded by controlled letter to the AFPI control office of the command assigned OPR with a copy to the other command AFPI control office.
(c) Proposed amendment of ASPR. Recommendations for amendment of ASPR will be submitted through channels, including AFLC (MCPO) or AFSC (SCK-2), as appropriate according to command OPR assignments, to the appropriate Responsible Office, AFSPP, Hą USAF. Recommendations will include the complete rationale for the proposed amendment and the specific ASPR language proposed to achieve the desired objective. The OPR will review the recommendation, obtain the necessary coordination, and forward the proposal, with command comments, through command control office to Hq USAF. [31 F.R. 2682, Feb. 12, 1966] 8 1001.107 Dissemination and effective
date of ASPR and AFPI. (a) Distribution will be made as follows: AFPI: Initial distribution of revisions printed by contract, by the contractor; all other, by the AF Publications Distribution Center. (See AFR 70–1 (Procurement Publications).)
(b) Compliance with an AFPI amendment is permissible from the date of the change and will be mandatory 90 days thereafter, except:
(1) As otherwise prescribed in the amendment.
(2) Use of new or revised AFPI contract clauses, will, unless otherwise specified, be mandatory 90 days after date of issuance. However, procurements initiated after receipt of the new or revised clauses by the purchasing activity should, to the maximum practicable extent, include such clauses prior to the mandatory date. In the following situations, when compliance with the mandatory date is impracticable, procurements may be completed on the basis initiated, provided that, prior to the mandatory date for use of the new or revised clause: (i) DD Forms 746 and 746–1 have been issued, and the award is to be made by means of DD Form 746–2, (ii) Invitations for Bids have been issued, or (iii) bilateral contractual documents have been submitted to the contractors and introduction of the new or revised clause may delay the procurement.
