PART 1 GENERAL Change the provided web link to the following: https://www.epa.gov/smm/comprehensive-procurement-guideline-cpg-program#products
1.4 DESIGNATED ITEMS INCORPORATED IN THE WORK Add the following to the end of the NOTE: When specifying non-compliant products, the designer or requirements generator shall submit a justification of non-use as described below using the JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD SUSTAINABLE ACQUISITION EXCEPTION FORM (HJB Form 225).  This justification shall specify the reason for non-use (price, performance, or availability) and include all supporting evidence.  The completed form shall be sent via email (with copies of supporting documents included) to the Contracting Officer's Representative, with usarmy.jblm.id-readiness.list.dpw-green-procurement@army.mil in the carbon copy ("cc") line of the email.  If use of email is not possible, coordinate the submission of these documents with the Contracting Officer or their representative and ask that they forward copies to the JBLM Sustainable Acquisition Coordinator (Bldg 1210, 966-6466).
1.4 DESIGNATED ITEMS INCORPORATED IN THE WORK Change the second sentence in the paragraph to read: These items, when incorporated into the work under this contract, shall contain at least the percentage of recycled/recovered materials (including postconsumer content) or biobased materials specified in the corresponding EPA Recovered Materials Advisory Notice (RMAN) or USDA BioPreferred Program unless adequate justification for non-use is provided.  Questions may be directed to the JBLM Sustainable Acquisition Program Coordinator via the Contracting Officer or their representative.
1.4 DESIGNATED ITEMS INCORPORATED IN THE WORK Add the following to the end of the paragraph: When claiming a justification for non-use as noted above, the contractor shall complete and submit the completed HJB Form 225 (including copies of all supporting evidence) to the Contracting Officer or their representative.  This form is available at https://www.lewis-mcchord.army.mil/designstandards/DocumentRepositoryForDSLinks/HJB%20225.pdf
 
The contractor shall submit the completed form via email (with copies of supporting documents attached) and include the following address in the carbon copy ("cc") line of the email: usarmy.jblm.id-readiness.list.dpw-green-procurement1@mail.mil.  If use of email is not possible, the contractor shall coordinate the submission of these documents with the Contracting Officer or their representative and ask that they forward copies to the JBLM Sustainable Acquisition Program Coordinator (Bldg 1210, 966-6466).
1.7 BIOPREFERRED FPP Add the following as a third paragraph: Note that the BioPreferred Program does not incorporate specific environmental criteria, thus particular biobased products may conflict with the overall environmentally preferable purchasing requirements per EPA guidance.  Thus, lifecycle environmental performance of the product should be taken into account per EPA guidance (https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2015-09/documents/finaleppguidance.pdf).  If no biobased options in a particular category meet the EPA guidance, document the justification on the submitted HJB Form 225, with (environmental) performance being the noted reason for exception.

 
Design Requirements
All design shall comply with federal sustainable design and development laws and policies, to include sustainable acquisition laws.
