Intermountain Zone - Procurement & Property Services (PPS)

The Intermountain Zone conducts a full range of acquisition activities to support the programs and goals of the Forest Service. The majority of our procurement is done through competitive means. We also actively support and participate in preferential programs such as small business set-asides, the 8(a) program and mandatory source programs. All procurements expected to exceed $25,000 are advertised on the SAM.gov webpage. This site provides a brief synopsis of the project, i.e., location, scope of the work, information of how to obtain the solicitation, and any special conditions.

 

Real property leases for facilities are awarded and administered by the Procurement & Property Services staff.

 

The Acquisition Management staff provides program guidance and technical support for grants and agreements. The majority of the federal financial assistance programs (grants and cooperative agreements) in the Intermountain Region are in support of State and Private Forestry programs that include cooperative forestry grants through the state foresters and rural community and economic development grants awarded through a competitive process. The Forest Service has other authorities in support of National Forest Systems management that allow us to enter into cost share agreements non-competitively with local governments, Indian tribes, non-profit organizations, individuals, and in some cases, for-profit entities when there is a mutual benefit and interest.

 

There are three service centers set up to provide procurement services to the Intermountain Zone.
