Class Deviation 2019-O0012
Use of DLA Energy as a Source for Fuel

Effective immediately, notwithstanding the restriction at Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 51.101(a)(1), contracting officers may authorize contractors to use Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Energy as a source for fuel in performance of other than cost-reimbursement contracts, when the fuel is funded by the Defense Working Capital Fund. When providing this authorization to contractors, contracting officers shall-

  • Comply with the requirements of FAR 51.102 and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 251.102, including the execution of a letter of authorization;
  • Include FAR clause 52.251-1, Government Supply Sources, and DFARS clause 252.251-7000, Ordering From Government Supply Sources, in the contract;
  • Obtain a current DLA Energy Fuel Purchase Authorization (FPA) template from DLA Energy by emailing; and
  • Email to DLA Energy, at, a copy of the-
    • Completed FPA;
    • Letter of authorization from the contracting officer, and
    • Documentation showing inclusion of FAR clause 52.251-1 and DFARS clause 252.251-7000 in the underlying contract.

Upon receipt of the documentation, DLA Energy will work with all parties to review the FPA for accuracy and completeness. If approved, DLA will assign a Department of Defense Activity Address Code for the fuel sales.

This class deviation remains in effect until it is incorporated in the DFARS, or is otherwise rescinded.
