8 5A-73.101 General.

The requirements-type contract, as defined in FPR 1-3.409(b), is the usual method of contracting used under the Federal Supply Schedule Program. GSA regulations governing the use of Federal Supply Schedule contracts by executive agencies are set forth in FPMR 101-26.4. Each Federal Supply Schedule sets forth specific require ments as to mandatory or non-mandatory use and minimum and maximum order limitations. (NOTE: The minimum and maximum order limitations for multiple award schedules appear in the contractor's pricelist.) Federal Supply Schedule procurement assignments are set forth in Subpart 5A76.4.

8 5A-73.102 Coordination requirements. (a)

The entire Federal Supply Schedule Program is continuously monitored by the Federal Supply Schedule Management Division (FPS). Prior written coordination with FPS is required for:

(1) Establishment of new schedules.

(2) Discontinuance of existing schedules.

(3) Changes (i.e., additions, deletions, or description revisions) to special item numbers or NSNs, and changes to the scope of agency or geographic coverage of an existing schedule.

(b) Coordination shall be accomplished by use of GSA Form 1649, Recommendation for Improvement of Federal Supply Schedules (illustrated in 5A-16.950-1649). This form should be submitted to FPS, in duplicate, well in advance of solicitation preparation. The GSA-DOD agreement provides 90 days for obtaining concurrences. A similar leadtime is required for civilian agency coordination.

8 5A-73.000 Scope of part.

This part prescribes policies and procedures having special application to the Federal Supply Schedule program (including nonstock term contracts for direct use by agencies in placing orders with contractor). Other policies and procedures relating to contracts in general, as set forth in the Federal Procurement Regulations and elsewhere in this Chapter 5A, shall also be observed.
