Procurement of Commodities for Foreign Donation
Document Number: E5-7460
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-12-16
Agency: Department of Agriculture, Commodity Credit Corporation
This proposed rule would adopt new procedures to be used by the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) in the evaluation of bids in connection with the procurement of commodities for donation overseas. In general, CCC proposes to amend the existing regulations to provide for the simultaneous review of commodity and ocean freight offers when evaluating lowest-landed cost options in connection with the procurement of commodities. This proposed rule would enhance bidding opportunities for potential vendors while allowing CCC to more efficiently acquire commodities.
