The OFPP was established by Congress in 1974 to provide direction for government-wide procurement policies, regulations, and procedures. It promotes economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in acquisition processes. The Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) located within the Office of Management and Budget plays a vital role in influencing the policies federal agencies use to acquire the goods and services they need to fulfill their responsibilities. OFPP is regulated by an Administrator who is appointed by the President and then confirmed by the Senate.

The OFPP makes sure that government agencies have professional purchasing staff that will be consistent in their policies and ensure that the competition is in place to get the best possible price for each service or item purchased. The OFPP’s primary goal is to make sure that the taxpayer gets the best value for each dollar spent.

The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) is a government-wide regulation governing agency acquisitions of goods and services. It is the document that the OFPP works with to resolve controversial FAR changes The OFPP issues circulars that define changes to the procurement regulations as they may occur. The OFPP will also issue policy guides such as the Emergency Acquisitions Guide (EAG). Documents and policy letters are also issued by the OFPP. They will give federal purchasing departments information on such topics like preventing fraud in contracting and green purchasing requirements.
