ACQUISITION OF UTILITY SERVICES

Subpart 1841.2--Acquiring Utility Services

1841.203 GSA assistance.
(a) Before soliciting technical assistance technical personnel shall contact the Headquarters Environmental Management Division (Code JE).

1841.205 Separate contracts.

1841.205-70 Authorization for acquisition of wellhead natural gas.
(a) Acquisition of wellhead natural gas and interstate transportation of the natural gas to locally franchised distribution utility companies' receipt points (city gate) is considered the acquisition of supplies rather than the acquisition of public utility services described in FAR Part 41. Therefore, wellhead natural gas and interstate transportation of such gas should be obtained directly by NASA under applicable authorities and FAR procedures governing the acquisition of supplies. Redelivery of the gas from the city gate to the NASA facility is considered a utility service since it is provided only by the locally franchised utility. GSA is responsible for obtaining an appropriate contract for the redelivery service in accordance with FAR 41.204.
(b) GSA provides assistance to Federal agencies in the acquisition of natural gas wellhead supplies. Contracting officers may obtain assistance from GSA in the acquisition of wellhead natural gas by contacting GSA at the address specified in FAR 41.301(a).

Subpart 1841.3--Requests for Assistance

1841.301 Requirements.
(a) Procurement officers shall submit requests for delegation of contracting authority directly to the cognizant GSA regional office after coordinating with the cognizant center technical office .

(b) A copy of all correspondence with GSA shall be provided to the Headquarters Office of Procurement (Code HS) at the time of its submittal to the GSA regional office.

Subpart 1841.5--Solicitation Provision and Contract Clauses

1841.501 Solicitation provision and contract clauses.

1841.501-70 NASA contract clause.
