Interagency Acquisitions Overview

An Interagency Acquisition is a procedure by which an agency needing supplies or services (the requesting agency) obtains them from another agency (the servicing agency). The term includes:

  1. Acquisitions under the Economy Act (31 U.S.C. 1535); and
  2. Non-Economy Act acquisitions completed under other statutory authorities, (e.g., General Services Administration Federal Supply Schedules and Government-wide acquisition contracts (GWACs)).

The Economy Act provides authority for federal agencies to order goods and services from major organizations within the same agency or other federal agencies and to pay the actual costs of those goods and services. The Congress passed the Act in 1932 to obtain economies of scale and eliminate overlapping activities of the Federal Government. Within the Department, an activity within a DoD Component may place an order for goods or services with (1) another activity within the same DoD Component, (2) another DoD Component (an Intra Service Acquisition), or (3) with another federal agency.

DHRA Enterprise Oprations Center (DEOC) Contracting Directorate (PK) is responsible for review and approval of Interagency and Intra Service Acquisitions. The contents of the request for review and approval is slightly different depending upon whether the servicing agency is within DoD or among the Civilian Agencies. Further, there are differences in the contents of the request if the authority being cited is the Economy Act or Non-Economy Act.
