In accordance with the Federal Property and Administrative Service Act of 1949, as amended, (40 U.S.C. 481), Economy Act, (31 U.S.C.686), the Agriculture Organic Act of 1944, (U.S.C. 580a), and Cooperative Forestry Assistance Act of 1978, (16 U.S.C. 2101), GSA Wildland Fire Program furnishes fire protection equipment and supplies federal agencies as well as to U.S. Forest Service cooperating agencies through formal agreements with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service and the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management. In accordance with Texas Government Code 2155.084, the Comptroller of Public Accounts - Texas Procurement and Support Services Divisions authorizes the utilization of this for all State Agencies and Cooperative members to utilize as a best value procurement method. Working closely with the USDA's Forest Service, GSA offers a wide range of firefighting products to state and local agencies. GSA currently stocks more than 50 items managed under the fire program. These items include: Water handling equipment and supplies, Fire line tools, Fire shelters, Protective clothing, Canteens, Field packs, Sleeping bags, Batteries, Chainsaw chaps, First aid kits, Goggles and safety glasses, and Gloves. The majority of these items are covered byery rigid Forest Service specifications. State and local organizations wishing to purchase wildland fire supplies from GSA must first enter into a cooperative agreement, thereby obtaining "sponsorship," from their state. It is the decision of the State Forester and ultimately the Forest Service to grant sponsorship to a requesting organization. The cooperative agreement must be approved prior to assignment of an Activity Address Code (AAC). Once the AAC is requested by the Forest Service and assigned by GSA, the state or local customer is authorized to buy directly from GSA.
