    Are we able to purchase stamps? Is this a direct award to USPS via contract or MIPR from one federal agency to another?


    Answer

    This response is based on the information provided.  We suggest you discuss with your contracting officer and/or legal department as appropriate. 
     
    It appears you are from a Guard unit which changes the nature of the response.  Normally stamps are not something that meets the definition of a supply as part of an acquisition. 
     
    Since these can be purchased as a legitimate need of the requesting unit, a proper question must be is this the best use of funds and reasonable method of reaching people to get the word out?  If purchasing stamps is still considered necessary, it would be good to use the GPC if possible.  At the dollar value indicated the GPC would not work.  Walmart odes sell stamps, at cost we believe.
