FOREIGN PURCHASES

a

(d) Procedures.

(1) When it is proposed to procure supplies originating from sources within Soviet-controlled areas for public use within the United States (as defined in 6.101(c)), or when a construction contractor proposes to use such supplies in the performance of a contract for construction within the United States (as defined in 6.201-1), the following procedures shall be followed:

(i) If the proposed procurement of such supplies does not exceed $2,500,

the contracting officer shall make a determination of nonavailability, as authorized in 6.103–2 or 6.203-1. This determination shall include, in addition to the findings outlined in the determination format set forth in 6.103–2(c), a finding to the effect that there is no known item or items from sources within non-Soviet-controlled areas which can be used as a reasonable substitute. Such determi

nation shall be made a part of the contract file. (ii) If the proposed procurement of such supplies exceeds $2,500, the

contracting officer shall prepare a determination of nonavailability for signature by the Administrator. The format of the determination set forth in 6.103–2(c) shall be used and such determination shall include, as an additional finding, a statement to the effect that there is no known item or items from sources within nonSoviet-controlled areas which can be used as a reasonable substitute. Such determination shall be forwarded, in triplicate, to

the Office of Procurement.

(2) When it is proposed to procure supplies originating from sources within Soviet-controlled areas for public use elsewhere than within the United States (as defined in 6.101(c)), or when a construction contractor proposes to use such supplies in the performance of a contract for construction elsewhere than within the United States, the following procedures shall be followed:

(i) If the proposed procurement of such supplies does not exceed $2,500,

the contracting officer shall make a written finding setting forth the unusual situation, such as an emergency or the nonavailability of acceptable substitute supplies of domestic or non-Soviet-controlled area origin, which justifies the procurement of supplies originating in a Soviet-controlled area. Such finding shall be made a part of

the contract file. (ü) If the proposed procurement of such supplies exceeds $2,500, the

contracting officer shall make a written finding, as described in (d)(2) (i) above. Such finding shall be forwarded, in triplicate, to the Procurement Office, NASA Headquarters for approval by the Administrator of the exception authorizing the proposed procurement.
