Economy Act Orders

Requisitions for goods or services placed by one Federal Agency with another (using FAR 17.5 procedures) under Economy Act Section 1535(a) USAID rarely uses Economy Act Orders when transferring funds to other agencies, since the specific authorities under FAA Sections 632(a) and 632(b) generally cover the same types of transactions and are more appropriate to use (USAID Automated Directives System - ADS - Chapter 306).
