Subpart 6–1.1-Introduction SOURCE: The provisions of this Subpart 61.1 appear at 28 F.R. 7779, July 31, 1963, unless otherwise noted. $ 6–1.101 Scope of subpart.

This subpart describes the Department of State Procurement Regulations in terms of establishment, relationship to the Federal Procurement Regulations (FPR), arrangement, applicability, and deviation procedure. Procurement procedures are integrated with the regulations so as to provide a complete, logical and comprehensive publication. $ 6–1.102 Purpose.

This subpart establishes the Department of State Procurement Regulations (DOSPR) as Chapter 6 of the Federal Procurement Regulations System. $ 6–1.103 Authority.

The DOSPR are prescribed by the Secretary of State pursuant to the Act of May 26, 1949 (63 Stat. 111), as amended, and the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 (63 Stat. 377), as amended. $ 6-1.104 Applicability.

(a) The DOSPR and the FPR apply to all procurement of personal property and nonpersonal services (including construction) by the Department of State both within and outside the United States except for those operations which have exemption from the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949, as amended.

(b) The DOSPR and FPR do not apply to the acquisition or leasing of real property.

(c) The FPR has been edited for use by the Foreign Service. Those portions which are not applicable to procurement outside the United States have been removed except that the contents pages are complete for reference purposes. (29 F.R. 12070, Aug. 25, 1964, as amended at 31 F.R. 10193, July 28, 1966] 8 6–1.105 Exclusions.

(c) Policy or procedure which is being instituted on an experimental basis for a reasonable period. (Redesignated, 31 F.R. 10193, July 28, 1966) § 6–1.106 Issuance.

Regulations contained in the DOSPR deemed necessary for business concerns, and others properly interested, to understand basic and significant Department of State procurement policies are published in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) as Chapter 6 of Title 41, Public Contracts, and are published in issues of the FEDERAL REGISTER and in separate loose-leaf volume form. [Redesignated, 31 F.R. 10193, July 28, 1966) § 6–1.107 Arrangement. (Redesignated, 31 F.R. 10193, July 28, 1966) § 6-1.107-1 General plan.

The DOSPR conform with the style and arrangement of the FPR. (Redesignated, 31 F.R. 10193, July 28, 1966) § 6–1.107–2 Numbering.
