      (a)  In solicitations and contracts for Special Order Program items, when the contract authorizes FAS and other activities to issue delivery or task orders, insert the clause at 552.216-72, Placement of Orders.

This clause shall not be included in GSA-awarded contracts available for multiple agency use (i.e., Governmentwide Acquisition Contracts, Multi-Agency Contracts); instead, see (d) below.
