Procurement

The fundamental authority for buying goods and services comes from the enactment of the laws establishing the agency, authorizing programs, or appropriating funds for a particular purpose (FSM 1020). These authorities are vested in the head of the agency and may be used only when, and to the extent, that they are actually delegated.
