time from initial notification through start of design will be reported to the tenant agency and may be cause for cancellation of any commitment to occupy space.
D. When USPS or GSA has control over a site in the UA which is needed by the other agency for a project, the agencies agree to make such sites available to each other to the maximum extent practicable and possible under laws and regulations governing each agency, i.e., one agency acquiring a site by transfer from the other through the land bank or GSA obtaining an assignable option from USPS for a lease construction project.
II. When GSA or USPS seeks leased space, available space in both agencies' inventories shall be considered before any advertisement for privately owned space. If the available space is not acceptable to the acquiring agency then the acquiring agency shall advise the holding agency and allow the holding agency sufficient time to accommodate the acquiring agency's objection, provided the mission need of the tenant agency will not be adversely affected by the delay. If the space would be suitable with alterations which would normally be the responsibility of the owner agency, but the owner agency does not have funds to make those alterations, then the tenant agency may fund the alterations. In such cases, the rent charged the tenant shall be based upon the condition of the space prior to the alterations and the space will not be subject to preemption by the owner agency for a period of 10 years or such other time to which the two agencies shall agree. In any case the period shall be not less than three years.
In the case of renting, the acquiring agency shall guarantee to the holding agency continued occupancy of a period sufficient to amortize construction costs whenever extensive repairs and remodeling are required. Repairs and alterations shall be made in accordance with existing agreements.
III. It is recognized that both agencies have a vested interest in conserving energy Therefore, to ensure that both agencies benefit from the experience and technology of the other, it is agreed that each agency will furnish to the other reports, studies, research, and development data in the field of energy conservation once this information is accepted by the contracting agency. Additionally, internal policies and procedures relating to energy conservation shall be exchanged as they are issued.
IV. Both agencies recognize the National interest in preserving historic buildings, each having several hundred designated historic properties in its inventory. In order to conserve our Nation's cultural heritage it is agreed that as early as possible in the planning process each agency will notify the other as to its need to vacate an historic
building so that the other may give proper consideration to acquiring and utilizing such property.
V. It is recognized by both agencies that improved communications between USPS and GSA will benefit not only both agencies, but also all Federal agencies, local jurisdictions, and the general welfare. Many of the misundertandings result from problems and situations which are not covered in the present agreement between the two agencies (dated August 1974). Therefore, it is agreed that the existing agreement shall be amended and approved by both agencies no later than June 30, 1979. It is also agreed that the Commissioner of the Public Buildings Service of GSA and the Assistant Postmaster General, Real Estate and Buildings Department of the United States Postal Service, shall meet annually in September to review the continuing working relationship of the agencies. Such meetings will commence in September 1979.
It is also agreed that the terms of the agreement between GSA and USPS shall be equally binding on both agencies, internal regulations of either agency notwithstanding. In order to maintain continuity and coordination with respect to this agreement, there will be a single point of contact within each agency for all matters pertaining to the relationship between GSA and USPS. That contact shall, in turn, be responsible for coordinating within his respective agency. At GSA, the point of contact will be the Assistant Commissioner for Space Management, Public Buildings Service. At USPS, the point of contact shall be the Director, Office of Real Estate. The point of contact for exchange of project requirements, as specified by sections I and II of this agreement, at the regional level are as follows: the GSA contact shall be the Director, Space Management Division, Public Buildings Service, and the USPS contact shall be the General Manager, Real Estate Division.
VI. Upon signing this memorandum of cooperation agreement, GSA and USPS shall issue appropriate instructions to the field implementing this agreement. The agreement will become effective 90 days after it is signed to allow each agency time to issue the proper implementing instruction. Jay Solomon, Administrator.

authorized by the Director of the Real Estate Division in the responsible GSA regional office or facility support center.

(a) Acquisitions of leased space by agencies possessing independent statutory authority to acquire such space are not subject to GSA approval or authority.
(b) Upon request, GSA will perform, on a reimbursable basis, all functions of leasing building space, and land incidental thereto, for Federal agencies possessing independent leasing authority.
(c) GSA reserves the right to accept or reject reimbursable leasing service requests on a case-by-case basis.

(4) The required space is found by the Administrator of General Services to be wholly or predominantly utilized for the special purposes of the agency to occupy such space and is not generally suitable for use by other agencies. Prior approval of GSA shall be obtained before an agency initiates a leasing action involving 2,500 or more square feet of such special purpose space. The request for approval and a Standard Form 81 shall be filed with the GSA regional office having jurisdiction in the area of the proposed leasing action as shown in $101–17.4801.
