SUBJECT:      Acquisition Letter No. AL 2015-06, Performance of Inherently Governmental and Critical Functions

SUMMARY:

Attached is revised Acquisition Letter (AL) No. AL 2015-07, Performance of Inherently Governmental and Critical Functions, dated July 07, 2015. This AL provides guidance to DOE and NNSA HCAs and COs for implementing OFPP Policy Letter 11-01, Performance of Inherently Governmental and Critical Functions. We are re-issuing this AL to correct the AL number, and to remove item #24 from Appendix A of OFPP Policy Letter 11-01. The guidance included in this AL is intended to serve as interim guidance for DOE until such time as the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) is amended to implement the Policy Letter in full detail.

Questions concerning this policy flash should be directed to

Kevin M. Smith, of the Contract and Financial Assistance Policy Division,

at Kevin.M.Smith@hq.doe.gov, or at (202) 287-1614.
