and related statutes. Pursuant to these special authorities, the BPI is 
promulgated as a statement of purchasing policy and as a body of 
interpretative regulations governing the conduct of BPA purchasing 
activities, and reflects BPA's private sector approach to purchasing 
the goods and services that it requires. BPA's financial assistance 
operations are conducted under 16 U.S.C. 832 et seq. and 16 U.S.C. 839 
et seq. The BFAI express BPA's financial assistance policy. The BFAI 
also comprise BPA's rules governing implementation of the principles 
set forth in 2 CFR part 200.
    BPA's solicitations and contracts include notice of applicability 
and availability of the BPI and the BFAI, as appropriate, for offerors 
to obtain information on particular purchases or financial assistance 
transactions.
