Interagency Agreement

DOI Office of the Secretary Requisitions

Guidance for DOI Office of the Secretary Customers

The Office of Federal Procurement Policy released government-wide guidance on interagency acquisitions with specific requirements for the content and format of Interagency Agreements.

In accordance with OFPP guidelines, the Interior Business Center developed a standard format for Interagency Agreements. This page contains the specific information and templates that are needed to begin the acquisition process with IBC.

IBC requires an Interagency Agreement, consisting of two parts: Part A and Part B. Within the Interagency Agreement, the "servicing agency" is the Interior Business Center (through its Acquisition Services Directorate) and the "requesting agency" refers to the Federal client agency.

Part A: Contains the general terms and conditions and may cover a single assisted acquisition or serve as an umbrella document to cover multiple assisted acquisitions.

Part B: Serves as the funding document and provides specific information on the requesting agency's requirement. IBC is required to have a signed Part A on file before accepting Part B. Clients are permitted to submit their own funding document, if required by their agency, in addition to Part B. For example, DoD clients may submit a Military Interdepartmental Purchase Request in addition to Part B.

The combination of Parts A and B creates a financial obligation. Both Parts A and B should be emailed to IBC's Acquisition Services funding team with a copy to your contracting officer. Please be sure to put your name on the fax cover sheet if you prefer to send a fax, 703-964-5300.
