§ 14–1.000 Scope of part.

This part establishes a system of procurement procedures applicable to purchases of personal property and nonpersonal services (including construction) by all bureaus and offices of the Department of the Interior, based upon the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 and the Federal Procurement Regulations, and describes the method by which the Department of the Interior implements and supplements Federal Procurement Regulations, and sets forth policies and procedures which implement and supplement Part 1-1 of the Federal Procurement Regulations.

§ 14–1.101 Authority.

Title III of the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 provides a procurement system applicable to purchases of personal property and services by the General Services Administration and by other executive agencies to which the Administrator of General Services, pursuant to section 302(a) (2) of the Act, has delegated authority to apply the provisions of Title III. The Administrator on March 10, 1959, issued Delegation of Authority 363 (24 F.R. 1921, March 17, 1959) authorizing all executive agencies (except those governed by the Armed Services Procurement Act) to utilize the provisions of Title III, other than section 305, relating to advance payments. The Federal Procurement Regulations System was established by the Administrator in March 1959 (Procurement Circular 1, 24 F.R. 1933, March 17, 1959), to prescribe policies and methods of procurement by all executive agencies acting under the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949. Executive agencies are authorized by FPR 1-1.008 to prescribe agency regulations to implement, supplement, and deviate from Federal Procurement Regulations. For the Department of the Interior, the Secretary of the Interior is empowered by law to prescribe such regulations (5 U.S.C. 22). f 14–1.102 Adoption of the Federal

Procurement Regulations System. Pursuant to authority delegated by the Administrator of General Services, the provisions of Title III of the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 and Federal Procurement Regulations shall, unless an exception is made by the Secretary for any purchase or class of purchases, govern the procurement of personal property and non-personal services (including construction) by all bureaus and offices of the Department of the Interior. § 14–1.103 Relationship.

(a) Chapter 14 implements and supplements the FPR. Material published in the FPR, which has Government-wide applicability, becomes effective throughout the Department of the Interior upon the effective date of the particular FPR issuance. Such material will not be repeated, paraphrased, or otherwise stated in Chapter 14 except to the extent necessary to implemert, supplement or authorize deviations from the FPR.
