Class Deviation Authorizes DLA Fuel Purchases by DoD Contractors

By Government Contracts Editorial Staff

The Department of Defense has issued Class Deviation 2019-O0012, Use of DLA Energy as a Source for Fuel. The notice provides that, notwithstanding the restriction at FAR 51.101(a)(1), contracting officers may authorize contractors to use Defense Logistics Agency Energy as a source for fuel for performing other than cost-reimbursement contracts, if the fuel is funded by the Defense Working Capital Fund. To use this authority, COs must: comply with the requirements of FAR 51.102 and DFARS 251.102, including the execution of a letter of authorization; include the clauses at FAR 52.251-1, Government Supply Sources, and DFARS 252.251-7000, Ordering from Government Supply Sources, in the contract; obtain a current fuel purchase authorization template from DLA Energy; and email specified documentation to DLA Energy. If the authorization is approved, DLA will assign an Activity Address Code for the fuel sales. For the text of the class deviation, effective September 27, 2019, see ¶70,245.106.
