(c) Cancellation results from notification from the contracting officer (pursuant to a cancellation provision in the multiyear contract) to the contractor of nonavailability of funds for contract performance for any subsequent year or failure of the contracting officer to notify the contractor that funds have been made available for the succeeding year. A cancellation charge may be provided for where substantial startup costs or substantial contingent expenses are involved. In such cases, the contracting officer shall, for each year except the last, establish cancellation ceilings applicable to the remaining years subject to cancellation. Requirements with respect to cancellation and cancellation charges, if any, shall be set forth in the solicitation.
(d) Evaluation of offers in a multiyear procurement involves not only the determination of the lowest overall evaluated cost to the Government for both alternatives (the multiyear and the first-year alternatives), but also the comparison of the cost of buying the total requirement under a multiyear procurement with the estimated cost of buying the total requirement in successive independent procurements. All the factors to be considered for the various evaluations involved shall be set forth in the solicitation. The cancellation cellings, if any, shall not be factors for evaluation.
(e) Award shall be made to that responsible offeror whose offer, conforming to the solicitation, will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. In no event shall award be made at an unreasonable price.
(f) Cancellation effected pursuant to the "Cancellation" clause shall not be construed to terminate the contract pursuant to the "Termination" clause. If the contract is terminated for the convenience of the Government, the Government's liability shall not exceed the amount then obligated for contract performance (including any agreed-to cancellation ceiling).
All multiyear awards made under the multiyear procurement method described herein shall contain the

§ 9-5.902 Use of GSA supply sources by AEC cost-type contractors.
(a) Managers of Field Offices may authorize cost-type contractors to use General Services Administration (GSA) supply sources (1.e., items available through Federal Supply Schedule contracts and other GSA contracts and from GSA stores stock) in accordance with the requirements and procedures in FPR Subpart 1-5.9.
(b) Direct procurement by AEC, rather than by a cost-type contractor, shall be required where deemed necessary

§ 9-5.5102 Use of GSA supply sources for AEC direct procurements.
Executive Stockpile Committee containing various recommendations covering long-range disposals of excess stockpile materials. The report provides that Federal agencies should continue to purchase their needs for surplus stockpile materials from the General Services Administration.

§ 9-5.5101 Policy.
It is AEC policy to use Government sources of supply to the fullest extent practicable, and that cost-type contractors should meet their requirements from Government sources of supply, if these sources are made available to them and if it is economically advantageous or otherwise in the best interest of the Government.
(For the use of GSA supply sources by cost-type contractors, see Subpart 9-5.9.)
Items listed in Federal Supply Schedules and in Federal Supply Service stores catalogs shall be procured in accordance with FPMR 101-26.3 and 101-26.4.

(a) Managers of Field Offices may authorize cost-type contractors to acquire materials and services directly from such Government sources of supply in accordance with the requirements of this subpart or the consent of agencies involved.
(b) Direct procurement by AEC, rather than by a cost-type contractor, shall be required where deemed necessary by the Managers of Field Offices in order to carry out special requirements of appropriation acts or other applicable laws relating to particular items.
§ 9-5.5104 Exclusive use on Govern
Materials, supplies, and equipment procured from Government sources of supply under the procedures described herein must be used exclusively in connection with Government work except as otherwise authorized by Managers of Field Offices.
§ 9-5.5105 Department of Defense. § 9-5.5105-1 Source.
Many supply facilities and contracts of the Department of Defense are made available to AEC and its cost-type contractors. Field Offices will be notified by the Division of Contracts when such contracts and facilities are made available. Inquiries in connection with these sources may be directed to the Director, Division of Contracts. Requisitions or purchase orders shall be submitted directly to these sources, unless otherwise specified.
§ 9-5.5105-2 Requisitions.
Contractors' requisitions submitted to Defense Supply centers should include the following statement on the requisition: "The consignee of the supplies and materials requisitioned herein is acting in behalf of and as agent for the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission with respect to the expenditure of Government funds."

(a) It is the policy of the Atomic Energy Commission not to place Government agencies in direct competition with commercial sources. Accordingly, prior to soliciting bids or proposals from commercial sources, it shall be decided whether to obtain supplies or services from Government agencies. Invitations for bids and requests for proposals shall not be sent to Government agencies. Current market prices, recent procurement prices, or prices obtained by informational bids as provided in FPR 1-1.314 may be used to ascertain whether procurement can be effected more cheaply from commercial sources.
(b) Each procuring activity, when it is in the interest of the Government to do so, may place delivery orders with any other Government department or agency for supplies or services that any such requisitioned department or agency may be in a position and willing to furnish or perform.

§ 9-5.5106-3 agreement.
Interagency agreements may take any form which will adequately reflect the interest of the parties. The following provisions provide guidelines for the preparation of such agreements.

(c) Scope of work.
Form of interagency
NOTE: This may be identified by reference to the specific proposal.
(d) Period of interagency agreement and/or duration of the work.
(e) Cost estimate of the project and the amount of funds to be provided by the AEC. Include (1) the total estimated cost of the work for the period of time specified in the agreement; (2) the capital equipment, if any, approved for acquisition under the agreement; and (3) limitations, if any, on the reimbursement of costs by the AEC which are not set forth in the agreement. If the AEC participates with another agency or agencies in sponsoring a work project, the amount of the contribution to be made by each agency and the basis for distributing the costs incurred shall be specified.
(f) Method of financing to be used. (g) Standard clauses should be used as appropriate.
[35 F.R. 17182, Nov. 7, 1970]
§ 9-5.5106-4 Methods of financing employed by AEC.
(a) Reimbursement basis. AEC requires except as specified in paragraphs (b) and (c) of this section, that work to be done by other agencies shall be financed by reimbursement on the basis of current billings or progress payments. This approach avoids much of the accounting and reporting work required when other methods of financing are used.
(b) Consolidated working fund advance. A consolidated working fund advance shall be used to finance construction projects or the acquisition of goods or services to be furnished by the servicing agency within the same fiscal year in which the advance is made, only after a determination has been made in accordance with paragraph (a) of this section that the reimbursement basis is not to be used.
(c) Appropriation transfer. An appropriation transfer shall be used to finance larger construction projects or the acquisition of significant goods or services to be furnished by the servicing agency where the work will extend beyond the fiscal year in which the transfer is made, only after a determination has been made in accordance with paragraph (a) of this section that the reimbursement basis is not to be used.
