(a) This Part 105-50 implements the provisions of title III of the Intergovernmental Cooperation Act of 1968 (82 Stat. 1102, 42 U.S.C. 4421-4225), the purpose of which is stated as follows:

It is the purpose of this title to encourage Intergovernmental cooperation in the conduct of specialized or technical services and provision of facilities essential to the administration of State or local governmental activities, many of which are nationwide in scope and financed in part by Federal funds; to enable State or local governments to avoid unnecessary duplication of special service functions; and to authorize all departments and agencies of the executive branch of the Federal Government which do not have such authority to provide reimbursable specialized or technical services to State and local governments.

(b) This part is consistent with the rules and regulations promulgated by the Director, Office of Management and Budget, in the Office of Management and Budget Circular No. A-97, dated August 29, 1969, issued pursuant to section 302 of the cited Act (42 U.S.C. 4222).

This part is applicable to all organizational elements of GSA insofar as the services authorized to be performed in Subpart 105–50.2, fall within their designated functional areas. $ 105–50.103 Policy.

It is the policy of GSA to cooperate to the maximum extent possible with State and local units of government in providing the specialized or technical services authorized within the limitations set forth in § 105-50.104. $ 105–50.104 Limitations.

The specialized or technical services provided under this part may be provided, in the discretion of the Administrator of General Services, only under the following conditions:

(d) Such services will not be provided if they require any additions of staff or involve outlays for additional equipment or other facilities solely for the purpose of providing such services, except where the costs thereof are charged to the user of such services. Further, no staff additions may be made which impede the implementation of, or adherence to, the employment ceilings contained in Office of Management and Budget allowance letters.

(e) Such services will be provided only upon payment or provision of reimbursement, by the unit of government making the request, of salaries and all other identifiable direct and indirect costs of performing such services. For cost determination purposes, GSA will be guided by the policies set forth in the Office of Management and Budget Circular No. A-25, dated September 23, 1959, subject: User charges. 136 F.R. 6498, Apr. 6, 1971, as amended at 36 F.R. 25409, Dec. 31, 1971 [ $ 105-50.105 Central coordination.
