DODD 7000.14-R VOL 11A CHAP 3
ECONOMY ACT ORDERS
|Publication Date:||1 March 2012|
This chapter prescribes policies and procedures applicable to transactions where goods or services are procured from other federal agencies under the Economy Act, Title 31, United States Code (U.S.C.) Sections 1535 and1536. Transactions include interagency and intraagency support, where an activity needing supplies or services (requesting or ordering agency) obtains them from another activity (servicing or performing agency). Within the Department of Defense (DoD), Economy Act orders typically are executed by issuance of a DD Form 448, "Military Interdepartmental Purchase Request (MIPR)." Project orders are outside the scope of the Economy Act, defined under 41 U.S.C. §6307, and discussed in Chapter 2. Chapter 1 shall be referenced for overall guidance and discussion of General Reimbursement Procedures and Supporting Documentation.
