Title:STATE COMPLIANCE WITH PROCUREMENT GUIDELINES
RCRA Online Number:14640
Date:12/17/2002
To:McDonald
From:Springer
Organization of Recipient:The Centerville Company Contractors
Description: EPA does not require the use of straw as vegetative cover in highway construction. EPA promotes the use of hydraulic mulch and thus designated it in the Comprehensive Procurement Guidelines (CPG). Procuring agencies must develop affirmative procurement programs for purchasing designated items containing recovered material. "Procuring agency" includes all federal agencies, any state and local government agencies that use federal funds to purchase designated items, and their contractors. Procuring requirements apply if a procuring agency is purchasing $10,000 or more of a designated item or purchased $10,000 or more of the item or functionally equivalent items in the preceding fiscal year. RCRA 6002 requirements apply to both direct procurements and indirect federal aid programs. Specific circumstances exist that might preclude the purchase of products made with recovered materials. A procuring agency must modify its program to require the purchase of a designated item, unless it provides written justification. The Office of the Federal Environmental Executive (OFEE) enforces both RCRA 6002 and Executive Order (EO) 13101.
