Doing Business with FOH
As a non-appropriated Federal agency, FOH operates much like a private sector organization. This means that we must cover our operating costs with funds collected through the services we provide. However, unlike our private sector counterparts, FOH makes no profit. By Congressional mandate, FOH may charge only our operating cost for services; no profits or fees.
Agencies that partner with FOH to receive programs and services from FOH do so under the Economy Act of 1932, as amended (31 U.S.C. 1535), which allows Federal agencies to place orders for goods and services with another Federal agency when it determines that it is in the best interest of the government. The Economy Act was passed to help Federal agencies accomplish their missions efficiently and without duplication of effort.
