Sec. 833e. Factors in determining rate schedules

-STATUTE-

It is the intent of Congress that rate schedules for the sale of

electric energy which is or may be generated at the Fort Peck

project in excess of the amount required for operating the dam and

appurtenant works at said project shall be determined with due

regard to and predicated upon the fact that such electric energy is

developed from water power created as an incident to the

construction of the dam in the Missouri River at the Fort Peck

project for the purposes set forth in section 833 of this title.

Rate schedules shall be drawn having regard to the recovery (upon

the basis of the application of such rate schedules to the capacity

of the electric facilities of Fort Peck project) of the cost of

producing and transmitting such electric energy, including the

amortization of the capital investment over a reasonable period of

years. Rate schedules shall be based upon an allocation of costs

made by the Secretary of Energy. In computing the cost of electric

energy developed from water power created as an incident to and a

byproduct of the construction of Fort Peck project, the Secretary

of Energy may allocate to the costs of electric facilities such a

share of the cost of facilities having joint value for the

production of electric energy and other purposes as the power

development may fairly bear as compared with such other purposes.

-STATUTE-

Notwithstanding any other provision of law, all purchases and

contracts made by the Bureau or the Secretary of the Army for

supplies or for services, except for personal services, shall be

made after advertising, in such manner and at such times,

sufficiently in advance of opening bids, as the Bureau or Secretary

of the Army, as the case may be, shall determine to be adequate to

insure notice and opportunity for competition. Such advertisement

shall not be required, however, when (1) an emergency requires

immediate delivery of the supplies or performance of the services;

or (2) repair parts, accessories, supplemental equipment, or

services are required for supplies or services previously furnished

or contracted for; or (3) the aggregate amount involved in any

purchase of supplies or procurement of services does not exceed

$500; in which cases such purchase of supplies or procurement of

services may be made in the open market in the manner common among

businessmen. In comparing bids and in making awards, the Bureau or

the Secretary of the Army, as the case may be, may consider such

factors as relative quality and adaptability of supplies or

services, the bidder's financial responsibility, skill, experience,

record of integrity in dealing, and ability to furnish repairs and

maintenance services, the time of delivery or performance offered,

and whether the bidder has complied with the specifications.
