Abstract: The longstanding policy of the federal government has been to rely on the private sector for needed commercial services. To ensure that the American people receive maximum value for their tax dollars, commercial activities should be subject to the forces of competition. In accordance with this circular, including Attachments A-D, agencies shall: a. Identify all activities performed by government personnel as either commercial or inherently governmental. b. perform inherently governmental activities with government personnel. c. Use a streamlined or standard competition to determine if government personnel should perform a commercial activity. [See OMB Memorandum M-08-11 (February 20, 2008), number 4, when applying this provision] d. Apply the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), 48 C.F.R. Chapter 1, in conjunction with this circular, for streamlined and standard competitions.
