That's not correct. I'm currently at Pipe Spring National Monument (a
federal facility in AZ), and despite being just a few miles from the Utah
border, it follows the bulk of AZ in *not* observing DST. I can tell you
the same is true for Grand Canyon National Park, Petrified Forest NP, Organ
Pipe Cactus NP, and other NPS locations here.

On the other hand, Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site - which is
surrounded by the Navajo reservation - follows the Navajo in observing DST.

In general, NPS sites in Arizona observe the time of their surrounding
areas. I would strongly expect that the same is true for other federal
facilities in Phoenix, Tucson, or wherever - it would just be too
disruptive for the time zone to be different in a single building.
