Federal Agent & Agency Sales

For those SA's who work for agencies with discretionary funds, we will work with you on invoicing.

Federal credit card holders are government employees who are not official buyers but do hold government credit cards and the authority to make small purchases from a single source (up to $2,500 in most cases).

Government Purchase Cards:  Government Purchase Cards are accepted both above and below the micro-purchase level

Single Purchase Limit. The single purchase limit is a limitation on the procurement authority delegated to the cardholder.

(a) You cannot exceed this limit unless a revised delegation of authority is issued by the APC.

(b) A single purchase may include multiple items; however, no single purchase shall exceed the authorized single purchase limit established for each cardholder.

(c) The standard single purchase limit is $2,500 for program office personnel, $2,500 up to $5,000 for field office personnel, and unlimited for OPGM.

The unique Government VISA Card that you have received has your name embossed on it and may only be used by you. The card was specially designed showing the great seal of the U.S. and the words "United States of America" imprinted on it to avoid being mistaken for a personal credit card.

You must comply with all regulations, including the FAR, this SOP, and SOP 00 11 that apply to simplified acquisition procedures. The credit card provides an additional mechanism for acquisition. We recommend the use of SBA Form 1987, "Credit Card Purchase Checklist," Appendix 3, to make it easier to comply with the detailed procedures in this chapter.

Use of Priority Sources.
Appendix 4 is an excerpt from FAR Part 8 summarizing the hierarchy of sources that must be considered before acquiring any goods or services with your credit card. Note that "commercial sources" are given the very lowest priority.

Cardholders with dollar limitations exceeding $2500 must purchase products made in the U.S.

RE: Personal Handgun Acquisition / Disposition Certification Letter for NYS

Dear Sir,

This letter is to verify my status as a "qualified law enforcement officer" as defined under 18 USC 924(B). My status, as indicated under NYS - CPL Article 2, §2.15, Federal Law Enforcement Officers; powers, entitles the possession of firearms in New York State without a license irrespective of state statute. Additionally, I am “qualified” under NYS-PL §265.20(a)(1)(d)- Persons in the military or other service of the United States; in pursuit of official duty or when duly authorized by federal law, regulation or order to possess the same. This letter serves as sufficient demonstration as defined in 18 USC §624(b) as to my qualification to acquire and possess or dispose without employer-agency authorization, “personal” firearms, when performed in full compliance with federal law.

    Note - Same status as Postal Police and federal Corrections Officers.

The following Notes are what's referenced as "Informal Opinions" issued by the Attorney General of New York State.
If you are one of the described federal law enforcement officers below and you feel this information is wrong, don't contact us, contact his office. We check with his Legal Counsel weekly.

   Note 1: Opinion NY Atty Gen No. 94-F3. “We concluded that United States Postal Police Officers who are issued Federal firearms permits that authorize them to carry firearms while on duty are within the exemption provided in section 265.20(a)(1)(d), which covers persons in the service of the United States pursuing official duties or those authorized by Federal law to carry firearms. We noted, however, that this exemption, as applied to the postal police officers, is strictly limited by their Federal firearms permits to on-duty activities and concluded that a postal police officer who wished to carry a firearm while off-duty in New York would have to comply with New York's licensing statute.”

   Note 2: A federal corrections officer was convicted of a state weapons possession crime in People v. Marrero (1979). It was concluded that Federal C.O.’s are not federally recognized as “qualified law enforcement officers”. Under 18 U.S.C. §3050, Federal Bureau of Prisons employees are not authorized to possess personal firearms without a state Pistol Permit.
Exception: Officers and employees of the said Bureau of Prisons may carry firearms under such rules and regulations as the Attorney General may prescribe.

   Note 3: Unless the V.A. Police Officer is assigned to the V.A. Medical Facilities, Batavia N.Y. - their status is the same as federal Uniform Postal Police Officers and Federal Bureau of Prisons employees, and are subject to licensing under state statue.

   Note 4: The appointment to Special Deputy U.S. Marshal does not bestow the federal authority to possess firearms. Such appointments are traditionally made for peace or police officers who are assigned to a federal Task Force, who already possess an authority granted by their state to possess firearms (NYS CPL §1.20 and §2.10).

The following is a partial list of the federal authority to possess firearms irrespective of any state law for the following federal law enforcement officers and Special Agents:
18 U.S.C. §3051(a)(BATFE Special Agents);
18 U.S.C. §3052 (FBI Special Agents);
18 U.S.C. §3053 (United States Marshals and their deputies);
18 U.S.C. §3055 (Bureau of Indian Affairs Officers):
18 U.S.C. §3056(c)(1)(B) (Secret Service Agents); 
18 U.S.C. §3061(a)(4) (Postal Inspectors);
18 U.S.C. §3063(a)(1) (Environmental Protection Agency Agents);
50 U.S.C. §3023. (CIA personnel as designated by the NSA Director);

Congress therefore created the exemption in 18 U.S.C. 922(o)(2)(A) in order to ensure that such parties would still be able to possess machine guns after the Firearms Owners' Protection Act of 1986 went into effect.

18 U.S.C. 922 (o)
(1) Except as provided in paragraph (2), it shall be unlawful for any person to transfer or possess a machinegun.
(2) This subsection does not apply with respect to—
(A) a transfer to or by, or possession by or under the authority of, the United States or any department or agency thereof or a State, or a department, agency, or political subdivision thereof;
