Authority of Military Exchanges to Lease General Purpose Office Space


The Navy Exchange Service Command, a nonappropriated fund instrumentality, and similar military exchange units constitute integral components of the Department of Defense, and their leasing authority, like that of other DoD components, is subject to the provisions of Reorganization Plan No. 18 of 1950, notwithstanding their status as NAFIs. Accordingly, they are not authorized to lease general purpose urban office space unless such authority is delegated to them by the General Services Administration.
