This situation allows, in practice, the use of subsidies or cooperation agreements rather than traditional public procurement and may constitute an abuse of subsidies in a number of situations. However, OMB is reluctant to present firm guidelines, which would justify the choice of a support instrument. See the project “OMB Report on Federal Systems Management According to P.L. 95-224, 14 January 1980, pp. 25 and 34. Due to OMB`s position or the absence of such an instrument, agencies have the choice between instruments in third-party situations. We believe that the problem can be solved, but that it should be solved by OMB. In order to do so, it is necessary to determine whether the language `direct benefit or use of the Federal Government` in Article 4(1) of the FGCA Law applies to third parties who, at the request of the Government, provide assistance to the Agency`s legal beneficiaries.
