PGI 225.7019-3 Waiver.

PGI 225.7019-3 Waiver.

(a) The following are factors to take into consideration for granting a waiver:

(1) The energy supply system is physically incapable of segregating Russian Federation energy from non-Russian Federation energy.

(2) The installation can only obtain the necessary energy from its current supplier without the unaffordable expense of constructing new supply lines.

(3) The price of requiring the supplier to segregate the energy is unaffordable and would result in the installation being unable to perform its mission within its budget authority.

(4) Consideration, by the requiring activity, of installation energy and security resilience has been taken into account (e.g., on-site sources of energy and fuel resupply would allow the installation to continue to perform its mission even with disruption of Russian Federation-sourced energy, the installation has addressed energy resilience and security risks and vulnerabilities, etc.).

(b) The head of the contracting activity shall submit to the congressional defense committees a notice of the waiver with a copy to Defense Pricing and Contracting, Contract Policy, via email at osd.pentagon.ousd-a-s.mbx.dpc-cp@mail.mil, at least 14 days before the award of an energy contract on the basis of an approved waiver. The notification shall include a copy of the waiver. The contracting officer shall include a copy of the approved waiver in the contract file.
