adequate consideration of small business interests. 81-1.007 Arrangement. § 1-1.007-1 General plan.

The general plan, numbering system, and nomenclature used in the Federal Procurement Regulations conform with FEDERAL REGISTER standards approved for the FPR. § 1-1.007–2 Numbering.

The numbering system permits identification of every unit. The first digit represents the chapter number allocated to each agency, followed by a dash. This is followed by the part number which may be one or more digits followed by a decimal point. The numbers after the decimal points represent, respectively, the subpart, section (in two digits), and, after the dash, subsection. paragraph, subparagraph, and further inferior divisions. For example, this division is called (section) "81-1.007-2," in which the first digit denotes the chapter, the second the part, the third the subpart, the fourth and fifth the section and the sixth the subsection. 81-1.007–3 Citation.

Federal Procurement Regulations will be cited in accordance with Federal Reg. ister standards approved for the FPR. Thus, this section, when referred to in divisions of the Federal Procurement Regulations, should be cited as “g 11.007-3 of this chapter.” When this section is referred to formally in official documents, such as legal briefs, it should be cited as “41 CFR 1-1.007-3." Any section of Federal Procurement Regulations may be informally identified, for purposes of brevity, as "FPR" followed by the section number, such as “FPR 1-1.007-3." 8 1-1.008 Agency implementation.

As portions of FPR material are prescribed, agencies shall publish in the FEDERAL REGISTER Implementing regulations deemed necessary for business concerns, and others properly interested, to understand basic and significant agency procurement policies and procedures which implement, supplement, or deviate from the FPR. Detailed instructions of Interest primarily for internal agency guidance need not be published. Implementing regulations shall be prepared to conform with FPR style and arrangement.
