Procurement Office at a Glance
The Headquarters Contracts Team is responsible for the centralized procurement of national supplies and services for the United States Marshals Service (USMS). The Simplified Acquisitions Team processes headquarters and field requirements up to $100,000. The ninety-four (94) field offices have delegated procurement authority of at least $25,000 and some $100,000.
Headquarters and field offices buy supplies and services from Small businesses, Socially and Economically Disadvantaged, HUBZone, Women-Owned, Service-Disabled and Veteran- Owned businesses to the maximum extent practicable.
Contained in this booklet are the purchasing procedures mandated by: Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Title 48, Chapter 1; Federal Acquisition Regulations; Federal Property Management Regulations; Department of Justice Acquisition Regulations; agency policies and procedures and other general information concerning doing business with the USMS.
Additional information regarding our agency’s forecast of contracting opportunities and prime contractor directory can be obtained via the Department of Justice, Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization at their website, www.usdoj.gov/jmd/osdbu/.
The USMS’s procurement staff has, in the past, and will continue in the future, to encourage participation by all enterprises capable of providing supplies and services which are not available through mandatory procurement sources.
Priorities for Use of Supply Sources
Executive agencies must order supplies and services from the following sources in the order listed below, in accordance with the FAR 8.001 and FPMR 101-26.107:
1. Agency Inventories.
2. Excess from other agencies (FAR Subpart 8.1).
3. Federal Prison Industries Inc. (UNICOR) (see FAR Subpart 8.6).
4. Products available from the Committee for Purchase from People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled (see FAR Subpart 8.7).
5. Wholesale supply sources, such as: stock programs of GSA (see 41 CFR 101-26.3), the Defense Logistics Agency (see 41 CFR 101-26.6), the Department of Veterans Affairs (see 41 CFR 101-26.704), and military inventory control points.
6. Mandatory Federal Supply Schedules (see FAR Subpart 8.4).
7. Optional-use Federal Supply Schedules (see FAR Subpart 8.4), and
8. Commercial sources (including educational and non-profit institutions).
1. Services available from the Committee for Purchase from People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled (see FAR Subpart 8.7).
2. Mandatory Federal Supply Schedules (see FAR Subpart 8.4).
3. Optional-use Federal Supply Schedules (see FAR Subpart 8.4).
4. Federal Prison Industries, Inc., (UNICOR) (see FAR Subpart 8.6) or other commercial sources (including educational and non- profit institutions).

Statutory obligations for Government agencies to satisfy their requirements for supplies available from the Committee for Purchase from People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled also applies when contractors purchase the supply items for Government use.
