Alcohol Waiver Approvals

Alcohol Waiver Approvals

In accordance with 41 CFR 102-74,405 and 310 DM 13, the use of alcoholic beverages in DOI occupied or controlled facilities is allowed only if a prior written exemption by the Secretary or his/her designee has been granted. The Director of the Office of Facilities and Administrative Services (OFAS) or his/her designee is the authorizing official for the Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior Building (MIB) in Washington, DC. The authorizing official in other locations is the respective Bureau/Office head or his/her designee.

Submitting a Request for MIB

An alcohol waiver approval form DI-6003 (Authorization to Serve Alcoholic Beverages) in the MIB must be completed and signed by a Management Official.  The completed waiver must be sent to OFAS approving officials listed below, and once approved or denied, will be sent back to the requesting official and other offices (such as OFAS Facilities and DOI Security).
