curement Division, Office of Administrative Services (MGT/AC). These instructions, together with the FPR and Chapter 19, constitute the International Communication Agency Procurement Regulations (IAPR). [27 FR 6044, June 27, 1962, as amended at 43 FR 28493, June 30, 1978

(31 FR 10789, Aug. 13, 1966)

§ 19-1.104 Applicability.

Chapter 19 applies to all purchases and contracts made by the International Communication Agency for the procurement of personal property and nonpersonal services (including construction) and the procurement of real property by lease, within the United States. (31 FR 10789, Aug. 13, 1966)

§ 19-1.102 Authority.

The International Communication Agency Procurement Regulations are prescribed by the Director of the International Communication Agency pursuant to the authority of the Reorganization Plan No. 2 of December 13, 1977, and Executive order 12048 of March 27, 1978, and the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 as amended.

(43 FR 28493, June 30, 1978)

$ 19-1.103 Relationship of Chapter 19 to

the FPR and other procurement

instructions. (a) Chapter 19 implements and supplements the FPR. Material published in the FPR, which has Governmentwide applicability, becomes effective throughout the ICA upon the effective date of the particular FPR material. Such material generally will not be repeated, paraphrased, or otherwise restated in Chapter 19.

(b) Implementing material is that which expands upon related FPR material. It will treat a similarly numbered portion of the FPR in greater detail or indicate the manner of compliance or deviation.

(c) Supplementing material is that for which there is no counterpart in the FPR.

(d) The absence of a corresponding part, subpart, section, etc. in Chapter 19 indicates that the FPR is applicable as written.

(e) Procurement instructions necessary to implement or supplement the FPR and Chapter 19, will be issued by the Chief of the Contract and Pro

$ 19-1.105 Method of issuance.

(a) All Chapter 19 material deemed necessary for an understanding, by business concerns and others interested, of basic and significant ICA 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 ICA procurement policies and procedures.

(b) The Chapter 19 material published in the FEDERAL REGISTER will be published in cumulative form in Chapter 19 of Title 41 of the Code of Federal Regulations. 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.

§ 19-1.106 Exclusions.

(a) Certain policies and procedures within the scope of this Chapter 19 may be excluded when any of the following criteria are applicable:

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

(4) Policies and procedures pertaining to other functions of ICA as well as to procurement functions and there is need to make the issuance available simultaneously to all ICA employees concerned.

(5) Speed of issuance is essential, numerous changes are required in Chapter 19, and all necessary changes cannot be made promptly.

(b) Procurement procedures and instructions issued in other than the FPR System format under (a) (4) and (5), of this section, will be codified into Chapter 19 at the earliest practicable date, but in any event not later than six months from date of issuance.

$ 19-1.107-3 Citation.

ICA procurement regulations will be cited in accordance with Federal Register standards approved for the FPR. Thus, this section, when referred to in divisions of the IAPR, should be cited as “8 19-1.107-3 of this chapter." When this section is referred to formally in official documents, such as legal briefs, it should be cited as “41 CFR 19-1.107-3." Any section of the ICA Procurement Regulations may be informally identified, for purposes of brevity, as IAPR followed by this section number; i.e. “IAPR 19-1.107-3."

$ 19-1.108 Deviation.

§ 19-1.107 Arrangement.

§ 19-1.107-1 General plan.

Chapter 19 is divided into parts, subparts, sections, subsections, and further subdivisions as necessary.

19-1.107-2 Numbering.

(a) Generally, the numbering system used in Chapter 19 conforms to that in the FPR (See § 1-1.007-2). Thus, a particular procurement policy or procedure is identified by the same number in both the FPR and in Chapter 19 except that the first number in the FPR will be 1 rather than 19.

(b) Where Chapter 19 implements a part, subpart, section, or subsection of the FPR, the implementing part, subpart, section or subsection of Chapter 19 will be numbered (and captioned) to correspond to the FPR part, subpart, section, or subsection.

(c) Where Chapter 19 supplements the FPR and thus deals with subject matter not contained in the FPR, the numbers in the group 50 through 69 will be assigned to the respective supplementing parts, subparts, or section.

(d) Where the subject matter contained in the part, subpart, section, or subsection of the FPR requires no implementation, Chapter 19 will contain no corresponding part, subpart, section, or subsection. Thus, there may be gaps in the Chapter 19 series of part, subpart, section, or subsection; in such cases, reference must be made to the FPR for policy and procedure applicable to ICA.
