See Form on Page 33 

DMM Public Subscriptions 

Customers may order the new Domestic Mail Manual (DMM) Issue 46 
from the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office. 
Available to the public only by subscription, the new DMM costs $56 for two 
issues and includes the DMM Transition Book. 

Customers should use the order form on page 33. Customers may also 
use this form to subscribe to the International Mail Manual (IMM). Post 
offices and postal business centers may make copies of the order form for 
customers. 

Employees should be aware that the Postal Service does not handle 
public subscriptions for these two manuals. When a customer changes 
mailing addresses or wants to inquire about a DMM or IMM subscription, the 
customer should send correspondence to the appropriate address shown 
above the order blank.— Information Systems, 8-5-93 

Improper Return of Presorted Flat-Size Mailpieces 

Postal customers report the improper return of presorted flat-size mail- 
pieces for an additional 10-cents postage. Originating postal facilities 
accepted these pieces when mailed at the correct .248-cents First-Class 
presorted rate with a 5-cent surcharge added because the presorted pieces 
weighed less than 1 ounce. Employees should not return these pieces for 
additional postage when the mailpiece bears .298-cents meter postage. 

In addition, bulk mail entry employees must check Presorted First-Class 
mailpieces at the time of mailing to determine whether they are subject to the 
nonstandard surcharge and collect it, when applicable. Postmasters and 
delivery unit employees at offices other than the office of origin who find 
metered pieces that do not bear an indication that the nonstandard surcharge 
has been collected should assume that it was paid at the time of mailing. 

After the Bank of New York brought this problem to USPS attention, several 
mailers also expressed similar incidences. Postmasters must ensure that 
each of their employees are aware of correct operating procedures about 
assessing nonstandard surcharges and handling shortpaid mailpieces. 

Each piece of First-Class Mail weighing 1 ounce or less that exceeds the 
size limits in Domestic Mail Manual (DMM) (old) 353.1 or (new) C1 00.3.0 is 
assessed the nonstandard surcharge fee of 10 cents when the piece is 
mailed at a single-piece postage rate. A surcharge of 5 cents is assessed for 
each piece of nonstandard First-Class Mail mailed at a presorted postage 
rate. See DMM (old) 315 or (new) R 100. 11.0 for the correct references 
concerning these mailings. Additionally, DMM (new) P01 1.1.5 provides the 
correct current procedures for handling shortpaid mailpieces.

515 Absence for Family Care or Serious 
Health Condition of Employee 

515.1 Purpose of 515. This section provides poli- 
cies to comply with the Family and Medical Leave Act 
of 1993. Nothing in this section is intended to limit 
employees' rights or benefits available under other 
current policies (see 511, 512, 513, 514), or collective 
bargaining agreements. Likewise, nothing increases 
the amount of paid leave beyond what is provided for 
under current leave policies or in any collective bar- 
gaining agreement. The conditions for authorizing the 
use of annual leave, sick leave, or LWOP are modified 
only to the extent described in this section. 

515.2 Definitions. The following definitions apply 
for the purposes of the section: 

a. Son or daughter— biological, adopted, or foster 
child, stepchild, legal ward, or child who stands in 
the position of a son or daughter to the employee, 
who is under 18 years of age or who is over 18 
and incapable of self-care because of mental or 
physical disability. 

b. Parent— biological parent or individual who stood 
in that position to the employee when the em- 
ployee was a child. 

c. Spouse— husband or wife. 

d. Serious health condition— illness, injury, impair- 
ment, or physical or mental condition that involves 
any of the following: 

(1) Any period of incapacity or treatment in con- 
nection with or consequent to inpatient care in 
a hospital, hospice, or residential medical care 
facility. 

(2) Any period of incapacity requiring absence 
from work or regular daily activities of more 
than 3 calendar days, that also involves con- 
tinuing treatment by (or under the supervision 
of) a health care provider. 

(3) Continuing treatment by (or under the supervi- 
sion of) a health care provider (a) for a chron- 
ic or long-term health condition that is 
incurable or so serious that, if not treated, 
would likely result in a period of incapacity of 
more than 3 days; or (b) for prenatal care. 

Note: Voluntary or cosmetic treatments (such as 
most treatments for orthodontia or acne) which are 
not" medically necessary are not "serious health 
conditions," unless inpatient hospital care is re- 
quired. Restorative dental surgery after an ac- 
cident or removal of cancerous growths is a 
serious health condition provided all the other 
conditions are met. Treatments for allergies or 
stress, or for substance abuse, are serious health 
conditions if all the conditions of the regulations 
are met. Prenatal care is included as a serious 



health condition. Routine preventative physical ex- 
aminations are excluded, 
e. Health care pro vider— doctor of medicine or os- 
teopathy, Christian Science practitioner listed with 
the First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, MA, 
or other attending practitioner (see 513.364). 

515.3 Eligibility. To request leave under this sec- 
tion, an employee must have been employed by the 
Postal Service for an accumulated total of 12 months, 
and must have worked a minimum of 1,250 hours 
during the 12-month period before the date leave 
begins. 

515.4 Leave Requirements 

515.41 Conditions. Eligible employees must be al- 
lowed an accumulated total of up to 12 workweeks of 
leave within a Postal Service leave year for one or 
more of the following: 

a. Because of the birth of a son or daughter of the 
employee and in order to care for such son or 
daughter. Entitlement to leave for this condition 
expires 1 year after the birth. 

b. Because of the placement of a son or daughter 
with the employee for adoption or foster care. 
Entitlement to leave for this condition expires 1 
year after the placement. 

c. In order to care for the spouse, son, daughter, or 
parent of the employee if the spouse, son, daugh- 
ter, or parent has a serious health condition. 

d. Because of a serious health condition that makes 
the employee unable to perform the functions of 
the employee's position. 

515.42 Leave Type. Absences approved under this 
section are charged as annual leave, sick leave, or 
leave without pay, or a combination of these. Leave is 
charged consistent with current leave policies and 
applicable collective bargaining agreements. Approv- 
ing officials should note "FMLA" in the approval block 
of the Form 3971, Request for or Notification of 
Absence. 

515.43 Authorized Hours. Under this section, full- 
time employees, are entitled to up to 480 hours of 
leave (i.e., 12 weeks times 40 hours per week) within 
a leave year. Employees with weekly schedules of 
less than 40 hours are entitled to 12 times the number 
of hours normally scheduled in their workweek. For 
example, a part-time employee with a normal sched- 
ule of 30 hours a week is entitled to 360 hours (12 
weeks times 30 hours). A part-time employee who 
does not have a normal weekly schedule is entitled to 
the total number of hours worked in the previous 12 
weeks, not including overtime hours. Leave in addition 
to the 12 workweeks authorized under this section 



Postal Bulletin 



21847, 8-5-93, Page 5 



may be granted in accordance with other leave poli- 
cies or collective bargaining agreements (see 511, 
512, 513, 514). 

515.5 Documentation 

515.51 General. An employee must provide a Form 
3971, Request for or Notification of Absence, together 
with documentation supporting the request, at least 30 
days before the absence if the need for the leave is 
foreseeable. If 30 days notice is not practicable, no- 
tice must be given as soon as practicable. Ordinarily 
at least verbal notification should be given within 1 or 
2 business days of when the need for leave becomes 
known to the employee. The employee will be pro- 
vided a notice detailing the specific expectations and 
obligations and consequences of a failure to meet 
these obligations. Additional documentation may be 
requested, which must be provided within 15 days or 
as soon as practical under the particular facts and 
circumstances. During an absence, the employee 
must keep his or her supervisor informed of intentions 
to return to work and of status changes which could 
affect his or her ability to return to work. Failure to 
provide documentation can result in the denial of 
family and medical leave under this section. 

515.52 New Son or Daughter. An employee re- 
questing time off because of the birth of the em- 
ployee's son or daughter and to care for the son or 
daughter, or because of the placement of a son or 
daughter with the employee for adoption or foster 
care, may be required to provide the birth or place- 
ment date. 

515.53 Care of Others for Medical Reasons. An 

employee requesting time off to care for a spouse, 
parent, son, or daughter who has a serious health 
condition may be required to provide documentation 
from the health care provider stating the date the 
serious health condition began, probable duration of 
the illness, appropriate medical facts, and when the 
employee will be needed to provide such care or 
psychological support. When the request is to care for 
someone other than a biological parent or child, ap- 
propriate explanation of the relationship may be re- 
quired. 

515.54 Additional Medical Opinions. A second 
medical opinion by a health care provider who is 
designated and paid for by the Postal Service may be 
required. In case of a difference between the original 
and second opinion, a third opinion by a health care 
provider may be required. The third health care pro- 
vider is jointly designated or approved by manage- 
ment and the employee, and the third opinion is final. 
The Postal Service pays the health care provider for 
the third opinion. A health care provider selected for 
the second or third opinion may not be employed by 



the Postal Service on a regular basis. Recertifications 
of a medical condition may also be required during 
absences. 

515.55 Employee Incapacitation. An employee re- 
questing time off under this section because of his or 
her own incapacitation must satisfy the documentation 
requirements for sick leave in 513.31 through 513.38 
or for leave without pay in 514.4. If absence exceeds 
21 calendar days, evidence of ability to return to work 
with or without limitations must be submitted. If addi- 
tional medical opinions are required, they are admin- 
istered as described in 515.54. 

515.6 Intermittent Leave or Reduced 
Schedule 

515.61 New Son or Daughter. Leave requested 
because of the birth of the employee's son or daugh- 
ter and to care for the son or daughter or because of 
the placement of a son or daughter with the employee 
for adoption or foster care may be taken on an inter- 
mittent basis or by establishing a reduced work 
schedule only if the request for such intermittent leave 
or schedule modification is approved. Approval is 
based on employee need, Postal Service need, and 
costs to the Postal Service. 

515.62 Care of Others for Medical Reasons or 
Employee Incapacitation. Leave requested to care 
for a spouse, son, daughter, or parent with a serious 
health condition or due to the employee's health con- 
dition may be taken on an intermittent basis or by 
establishing a reduced work schedule when medically 
necessary. 

515.63 Temporary Change in Duty Assignment. If 

an employee requests intermittent leave or a reduced 
work schedule, the Postal Service may assign the 
employee, with equivalent pay and benefits, temporar- 
ily to the duties of another position consistent with 
applicable collective bargaining agreements and regu- 
lations if such an assignment better accommodates 
the recurring periods of absence. 

515.64 FLSA Status. An employee exempt from the 
Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) normally may not 
take leave in less than 1-day increments. However, 
leave taken under this section on an intermittent basis 
or by temporarily establishing a reduced work sched- 
ule can be taken in less than 1-day increments with- 
out affecting the employee's FLSA-exempt status. 

515.7 Return to Position. Employees taking leave 
under this section are entitled to return to their posi- 
tions held when leave began, or to equivalent posi- 
tions with equivalent pay, benefits, working conditions, 
and other terms of employment. Returning employees 
are not entitled to any right, benefit, or position which 
they would not have been entitled had they not taken 
the leave, or to intangible, unmeasurable aspects of 
the job such as the perceived loss of potential for 



Page 6, 8-5-93, 21847 



Postal Bulletin 



future promotional opportunities. If an employee was 
hired for a specific term or only to perform work on a 
discrete project, then there is no further reinstatement 
obligation under this section if the employment term 
or project is over and the employment would not have 
otherwise continued. 

515.8 Benefits. All benefits shall accrue to employ- 
ees in a leave status under this section pursuant to 
the applicable provision of the ELM. 



515.9 Family Leave Poster. All postal facilities, 
including stations and branches, are required to con- 
spicuously display Poster 43, Your Rights Under the 
Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993. It must be 
posted, and remain posted, on bulletin boards where it 
can be seen readily by employees and applicants for 
employment.

their regularly scheduled workweek when less than 7 
calendar days notice of the schedule change was 
given. It is not paid beyond the 7th calendar day after 
the notice of schedule change is given. Neither is it 
paid when the assignment is made to accommodate a 
request for intermittent leave or a reduced work 
schedule for family care or serious health problem of 
the employee (see 515.6).

444.32 Exempt Positions 

***** 

444.324 Pay on a Salary Basis. Pay on a salary 
basis is defined as receiving a fixed salary regardless 
of the hours worked, or the quality or quantity of work 
performed. Deductions for annual or sick leave and 
leave without pay may be made in increments of full 
days only, except for leave taken in accordance with 
515.61 and 515.62 (leave taken on an intermittent 
basis or by establishing a reduced work schedule 
because of a new son or daughter, because medically 
necessary to care for others, or because the em- 
ployee is incapacited). If an employee is not paid on a 
salary basis, even though all the other criteria for 
exemption are met, the employee must be classified 
nonexempt.

514.22 Administrative Discretion. Each request for 
LWOP is examined closely and a decision is made 
based on the needs of the employee, the needs of the 
Postal Service, and the cost to the Postal Service. The 
granting of LWOP is a matter of administrative discre- 
tion. It is not granted on the employee's demand 
except:

c. An employee who requests and is entitled to time 
off under 515, Absences for Family Care or Se- 
rious Health Problem of Employee, must be al- 
lowed up to a total of 12 workweeks of absence 
within a Postal Service leave year for one or more 
reasons listed in 515.41. Leave without pay may 
be taken in combination with annual or sick leave 
for which the employee is qualified. 

***** 

514.4 Acceptable Reason and Instructions. 

See Exhibit 514.4 for acceptable reasons and instruc- 
tions for LWOP. 



519.7 Nonbargaining Personal Absence 

519.71 Policy. Nonbargaining exempt employees are 
paid on a salary basis; i.e., they receive a fixed salary 
for the workweek regardless of the number of hours 
worked or the quality of the work performed. They 
may be charged with annual leave, sick leave, LWOP, 
or any combination thereof, when they are absent 
from work for 1 or more full days. Except for leave 
taken in accordance with 515.61 and 515.62 (leave 
taken on an intermittent basis or by establishing a 
reduced work schedule because of a new son or 
daughter, because medically necessary to care for 
others, or because the employee is incapacitated), 
they cannot be charged with annual leave, sick leave, 
or LWOP on any service day in which they have 
workhours. court leave, military leave, holiday leave, 
administrative leave, or continuation of pay. 



Postal Bulletin 



21847,8-5-93, Page 9 



Acceptable Reasons for LWOP Instructions 



a. Personal reasons. 

b. Employee has no leave to cover 
vacation during choice vacation 
period. 

c. Full-time attendance at a college 
or university. 

d. Personal illness or injury (also 
see 515). 



e. Injury in line of duty. 



LWOP may be granted to cover the absence. 
LWOP may be granted to cover the absence. 

(1) Restricted to full-time employee. 

(2) An official transcript of courses taken must be submitted to the installation head. 

(1) LWOP may be granted after accumulated accrued sick and annual leave have been 
exhausted; except that during a pay period in which, due to personal injury or illness, no work 
is performed, an employee may utilize annual and/or sick leave in conjunction with LWOP, 
subject to approval of the leave in accordance with normal leave approval procedures. 

(2) A medical document from the attending physician or practitioner must be obtained before 
approval, the same as for sick leave. 

(3) Applications for LWOP to cover a period m excess of 30 days in any 1 year in cases of 
illness or injury are reviewed and acted upon by the installation head. 

(4) An employee normally will not be separated from the service because of absence due to 
personal illness or injury for a period of less than 1 year (also see 568). An employee may be 
separated if required to be absent for more than 1 year unless there is cause to expect 
recovery and return within a reasonable time after the end of 1 year in LWOP status. 

(5) The separation of an employee after 1 year of continued absence with or without pay 
does not prevent an eligible employee from filinq an application for retirement (also see 568). 

(1) Supervisors must advise employees of their right to file an application for FECA benefits 
as a result of illness or injury that is suffered in the line of duty. (See instructions on CA-1 and 
CA-2a for traumatic injuries and CA-2 for occupational illnesses and diseases.) 

(2) In traumatic injury cases, an employee is entitled to a maximum of 45 calendar days of 
continuation of pay (COP) without charge to leave if written notice of injury is filed within 30 
days of injury. The period of COP begins at the start of the employee's first full tour of duty 
thereafter, or the first day following the disability, whichever occurs sooner. The period during 
which 45 days of COP may be claimed must begin within 90 days of the occurrence of the 
injury but may end after 90 days from the occurrence. If, after returning to work subsequent to 
an apparent recovery from a traumatic injury, an employee is again absent from work as a 
result of the original traumatic injury, the employee may use any remaining COP time left up 
to the 45-day limit. However, the remaining COP time must be used within 90 days of the 
date the employee first returns to work following the initial traumatic injury. 

(3) An employee may choose sick or annual leave in lieu of COP; however, this leave may 
not be retroactively converted to COP provided a request is made within 1 year of the date 
the leave was used or the date of the claim approval, whichever is later. 

(4) Before being placed on LWOP, an employee may choose to use annual or sick leave until 
it is exhausted. Leave is earned during that part of a pay period in which the employee is in 
pay status. 

(5) On favorable adjudication of a claim by the Office of Workers' Compensation Programs 
(OWCP), LWOP may be substituted for a period of sick and/or annual leave so that the 
employee may accept disability compensation for the period of absence. 

(6) On favorable adjudication of a claim by OWCP, current employees are permitted to buy 
back the leave that they used while awaiting adjudication (see 545.73b6). If the injury is a 
traumatic injury, only leave used after the end of the 45-day COP period may be bought 
back. OWCP does not restrict the amount of leave hours an employee may buy back. 
However, Postal Service regulations do not permit employees to carry-over into the next 
leave year more than the allowable maximum number of hours of annual leave (see 512.12). 
When an employee buys back annual leave in the previous year in an amount that exceeds 
the applicable maximum carry-over, such excess will be automatically forfeited. For every 80 
hours of leave bought back and changed to LWOP, both annual and sick leave must be 
adjusted by the amount earned in a pay period.

YOUR RIGHTS 

under the 

FAMILY AND MEDICAL LEAVE ACT OF 1993 

FMLA requires covered employers to provide up to 12 weeks of job-protected leave to "eligible" employees for certain 
family and medical reasons. Employees are eligible if they have worked for a covered employer for at least 1 year, and for 
1,250 hours over the previous 12 months. 

REASONS FOR TAKING LEAVE: Leave must be granted for one or more of the following reasons: 

^ Because of the birth of a son or daughter of the employee and to care for the son or daughter during the first year after 
birth; 

► because of the placement of a son or daughter with the employee for adoption or foster care; 

^ to care for the employee's spouse, son, daughter, or parent, who has a serious health condition; or 

► for a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform the employee's job. 

At the employee's option, annual leave, sick leave, or leave without pay may be taken consistent with postal leave policies, 
and applicable labor agreements. 

ADVANCE NOTICE AND MEDICAL CERTIFICATION: The employee may be required to provide advance leave 
notice and medical certification. Taking of leave may be denied if requirements are not met. 

^> The employee ordinarily must provide 30 days advance notice when the leave is "foreseeable." 
^ An employer may require medical certification to support a request for leave because of a serious health condition, and 
may require second or third opinions (at the employer's expense) and a fitness for duty report to return to work. 

JOB BENEFITS AND PROTECTION: 

^ For the duration of FMLA leave, the employer must maintain the employee's health coverage under any "group 
health plan" provided the employee continues to pay the cost he or she paid prior to the leave. 

^ Upon return from FMLA leave, most employees must be restored to their original or equivalent positions with 
equivalent pay, benefits, and other employment terms. 

► The use of FMLA leave cannot result in the loss of any employment benefit that accrued prior to the start of 
an employee's leave. 

UNLAWFUL ACTS BY EMPLOYERS: FMLA makes it unlawful for any employer to: 

► interfere with, restrain, or deny the exercise of any right provided under FMLA; 

► discharge or discriminate against any person for opposing any practice made unlawful by FMLA or for 
involvement in any proceeding under or relating to FMLA. 

ENFORCEMENT: 

► The U.S. Department of Labor is authorized to investigate and resolve complaints of violations. 
^ An eligible employee may bring a civil action against an employer for violations. 

FMLA does not affect any law prohibiting discrimination, or supersede any law or collective bargaining agreement which 
provides greater family or medical leave rights. 

FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Contact the nearest office of the Wage and Hour Division, listed in most 
telephone directories under U.S. Government, Department of Labor.

Pictorial Cancellations 

As a community service, the Postal Service offers picto- 
rial cancellations to commemorate local events celebrat- 
ed in communities throughout the nation. A list of upcom- 
ing events for which pictorial cancellations are authorized 
appears below. If available, the sponsor of the pictorial 
cancellation appears in italics under the date. Also provid- 
ed, as space permits, are illustrations of those cancella- 
tions that were reproducible and available at press time. 

People attending these local events may obtain the 
cancellation in person at the temporary post office station 
established there. Those who cannot attend the event, 
but who wish to obtain the cancellation, may submit a mail 
order request. Pictorial cancellations are available only for 
the dates indicated and requests must be postmarked no 
later than 30 days following the requested pictorial can- 
cellation date. 

All requests must include a stamped envelope or post- 
card bearing at least the minimum First-Class postage (29 



cents per envelope or 1 9 cents per postcard). Items sub- 
mitted for cancellation may not include postage issued 
after the date of the requested cancellation. Such items 
will be returned unserviced. 

Customers wishing to obtain a cancellation should affix 
stamps to any envelope or postcard of choice, address 
the envelope or postcard to one's self or others, insert a 
card of postcard thickness in envelopes for sturdiness 
and tuck in the flap. Place the envelope or postcard in a 
larger envelope, and address it to: PICTORIAL CANCEL- 
LATIONS, followed by the NAME OF THE STATION, AD- 
DRESS, CITY, STATE, ZIP + 4 CODE, exactly as listed 
below (using all capitals and no punctuation, except the 
hyphen in the ZIP + 4 code). 

After applying the pictorial cancellation, the Postal 
Service returns the envelope or postcard through the 
mail. Customers who want their serviced item returned 
under protected cover should include a larger, stamped, 
self-addressed envelope.

•Through 1990 the F Fund was invested in the Wells Fargo Bond Index Fund. 



The C Fund is invested in the Wells Fargo Equity Index Fund, 
which tracks the S&P 500 stock index. The F Fund is invested 
in the Wells Fargo U.S. Debt Index Fund, which tracks the 
Shearson Lehman Brothers Aggregate Bond index. The G 
Fund is invested in special issues of U.S. Treasury securities. 

The monthly C, F, and G Fund returns represent net earnings 
for the month, after deduction of accrued administrative ex- 
penses. The C and F Fund returns also reflect the deduction of 
trading costs and accrued investment management fees. 

The C, F, and G Fund monthly returns are dollar-weighted: they 
reflect net earnings on the changing balances invested during 
the month. The C, F, and G Fund returns for the last 1 2 months 
assume, except for the crediting of earnings, unchanging 
balances (time-weighting) from month to month and assume 
earnings are compounded on a monthly basis. 



The C and F Fund returns vary from the Wells Fargo returns 
because of C and F Fund expenses and changing balances in 
the C and F Funds. The Wells Fargo returns are time-weighted: 
they assume constant dollar balances invested during each 
month and throughout the period. 

Future performance of the three funds will vary and may be 
significantly different from the returns shown above. See the 
"Summary of the Thrift Plan" for detailed information about the 
funds and their investment risks.

ASM Revision 

Purchases of Nonmetered Heating Fuel 

Effective immediately, purchasing procedures for re- 
quirements of nonmetered heating fuel estimated below 
20,000 gallons per year are revised to state that these 
purchases should be met through local buying proce- 
dures. The following new text to Administrative Support 
Manual (ASM) 543, Purchasing Nonmetered Fuel, re- 
places the current ASM 542.3. The next issue of the ASM 
will include this revision. 

543 Purchasing Nonmetered Heating Fuel 

543.1 Definition. Nonmetered heating fuel is fuel ob- 
tained by bulk delivery for storage at the installation, such 
as fuel oil, butane, propane, coal, and wood. For informa- 
tion about the purchase of metered heating fuel, see 542. 

543.2 Purchasing Methods 

543.21 Oil and Gas. The purchasing method used to 
obtain heating oil or gas (including butane and propane) 
depends on annual requirements. Generally, require- 
ments are categorized into two distinct limitations, each of 
which calls for a distinct purchasing method. The catego- 
ries are: 

a. Requirements over 20,000 gallons a year; 

b. Requirements under 20,000 gallons a year. 

543.22 Requirements Over 20,000 Gallons a Year. 

Under an interagency agreement between the Postal 
Service and the Defense Fuel Supply Center (DFSC), 
postal installations must purchase nonmetered heating oil 
and gas from Defense Fuel Supply Center contractors if 
the annual requirement is over 20,000 gallons per product 
at any given location. Delivery agreements are used to 
order this amount of heating fuel against a Defense Fuel 
Supply Center contract. Delivery agreements are issued 
by the servicing purchasing service center, and individ- 
uals so designated may place orders for the heating fuel 
they require. Orders are made in terms of tank capacity. 

543.23 Requirements Under 20,000 Gallons a 
Year. Nonmetered fuel requirements estimated to be 
under 20,000 gallons a year should be purchased using 
local buying procedures. 

Note: Postal Service or General Services Administra- 
tion credit cards may not be used to make these pur- 
chases (see Chapter 7). 

543.24 Nonpetroleum Fuels. All requirements for 
nonpetroleum fuels like coal, wood, etc., should be met 
through local buying procedures. 

543.3 Changes in Types of Fuel. Changes in the fuel 
used must have prior approval. For Postal Service-owned 
or -leased buildings, submit a request to the manager of 
Operations Program Support at the district office, giving 
estimated costs of the present and proposed fuels and 
the reasons for making the change. Include comments on 



the kind and amount of fuel currently provided and any 
complaints of objectionable smoke conditions. 

543.4 Procedures 

543.41 Requirements Over 20,000 Gallons a Year 

543.411 Submitting Requirements. Annual re- 
quests for requirements exceeding 20,000 gallons a year 
must be submitted through the servicing purchasing serv- 
ice center to the Defense Fuel Supply Center (DFSC). A 
Defense Fuel Supply Center requirements work sheet, 
provided by the purchasing service center to the require- 
ments organization, is used to establish annual require- 
ments by line item. A delivery agreement with the De- 
fense Fuel Supply Center is established by the purchas- 
ing service center for each line item requested. If a deliv- 
ery agreement cannot be established, the purchasing 
service center provides some other contractual vehicle. 

543.412 Order Limitations. Orders from Defense 
Fuel Supply Center contracts are authorized to the maxi- 
mum tank capacity as listed in the applicable Defense 
Fuel Supply Center contract Bulletin for the installation. 

543.413 Authorized Orderers. Individuals designat- 
ed to place orders against the delivery agreement must 
be identified by name or position title. 

543.414 Ordering. Authorized orderers may place 
orders from the delivery agreement in writing orally. Each 
order accepted by the Defense Fuel Supply Center con- 
tractor becomes an individual contract. Orders are as- 
signed a sequential number that must be provided to the 
contractor when the order is placed. 

543.415 Billing and Payment. Invoices are sent to 
the ordering installation, which verifies accuracy, certifies 
the invoice, and forwards it to the Information Systems 
field center for payment. 

543.42 Requirements Under 20,000 Gallons a 
Year. For all installations other than leased facilities for 
which the Postal Service pays for fuel, these require- 
ments are met through local buying procedures. The 
Postal Service or General Services Administration credit 
card may not be used to purchase any of the fuels dis-
