The “Foreign Service Agreement” business service is used to generate supplements through the load plan of an agreement position. The “Foreign Service Fee” business service is used to generate surcharges based on the pricing plan of an agreement position. For more information on the use of business service methods in workflow processes, see Workflow for creating contract fees and workflows to generate all contract taxes. For a graphic representation of the workflow, see Figure 41. Staff members of both agencies negotiate the results of the agreement taking into account the extent of the work and cost elements, the duration of the agreement, the specific reports or schedule, the frequency of billing, monitoring and standard operating procedures, as well as the transfer of requirements to the Authority. Please have your respective scholarships and contract agents reported. Service First provides that agencies enter into repayable agreements, but also transfer funds directly to another agency via treasury codes. This is a new process that is being tested at several sites across the country. At this stage, this option is not open to all units at the national level, but based on the results of the pilots, we are in the process of developing procedures and criteria for use. There are two main methods for moving money between agencies to fulfill the conditions of the first service agreement: refundable accounts and direct transfers. Once the agreement has been signed, an eligible account is established by the Agency, which receives the funds to be billed to meet the terms of the agreement. The core of Service First is an agreement between two or more agencies to do things from an integrated perspective.
This agreement allows the four front-line service agencies to share their resources, re-delegate government, tasks and responsibilities, and simplify the repayable process. The Inter-Institutional Memorandum of Understanding defines the mechanism for internal government orders (IGO) and mission orders (TO) among agencies. The IGO or TO should contain a working statement outlining the project and mutual agreement between the agencies concerned. Agencies do not need a separate Memorandum of Understanding to implement a Service First project. Agencies are not required to complete a separate agreement for their specific projects. The Interagency MOU is a global agreement that all agencies can use and quote. Keep in mind that ENTREPRISES are not fund vehicles and cannot commit funds. In other words, you cannot move money from one agency to another with an agreement. You must establish a separate mandatory agreement with specific forms provided by each agency, whether you are the recipient of the money or the fund payer. After completing this form, follow the policies of both agencies for the processing of agreements.
In general, you need a contract specialist to verify your agreement before a manager signs it. Some agencies have such automated databases. B as the Forest Service`s I-WEB database, but not others.
