The lawyer for the original poster should leave the FAR and search the agency regulations to decide who can sign the lease agreement. FAR contract agents do not sign lease agreements, cooperation agreements, grants, rentals of real estate, etc. All of these are legal, but they are not within the FAR province or contract agents. Your lawyers must tell you who has the right to sign bailing agreements in your agency. Well, I have said from the beginning that contract agents do not sign lease agreements, at least not in their capacity as FAR contract agents. Let your lawyer say who can sign an agreement — the wing commander can do it, and maybe someone else can. Conclusion – The FAR provides that a contract that provides that a seller must provide something and that the buyer must pay. This definition has been broadened, as evidenced by discussions on “cost contracts” in the forum. In addition, the FAR now provides for the possibility of executing a commercial post contract (CI) which must take the form of what is found on the commercial market (sewing), with a few exceptions, for which certain conditions must be included in the CI contract. As has already been said, a yawn is a legally binding instrument or if you enter into a contract. Therefore, with respect to the FAR, particularly far 1.102 (d), could a CO conclude that there is nothing in the FAR that would prevent a CO from signing a lease that intends to use the government through the lease agreement and offer it the best value? I add in a free FWIW comment: If this agreement serves exclusively to serve the government, to get “fancy gadgets” without the use of appropriate funds, then I would consider if you have an ADA problem in addition to the bailment challenge agreement. A critical point would be how long will this test last? How much longer will the government have? Yes, an agency may delegate the signed power of lease agreements to contract agents. An agency may also delegate other transaction powers, cooperation agreements, etc.
to contract agents. But all this is outside the context of THE FAR and is not inherent in liability 1102. For me, a contract agent only signs a derailment agreement, because the contract agent has unmasked a specific and distinct delegation according to agency procedures. In the context of this thread, I am not convinced that the FAR prevents a CO from signing a lease. As far as your offer is concerned, FAR and their codified supplements are considered FAR. DEAR and DFARS recognize that there are bails. I found examples of bail bonds signed by CO for GSA and the FBI. I understand your intention of “FAR contract agents,” but FAR agencies can (my term) get drunk the exact reading of the FAR that I think you intend to do. Example FAR 1.301 (a) (2) for alloys.
A brief look at the bails regarding the GAO protests shows a lot of shots that would need a lot of reading, but in general, my offer to Don Up seems to offer the synthetic view. I would simply like to suggest that such a comprehensive statement does not seem to be fully able to read the FAR on how agencies can implement their guiding principles.
