Changes to Acquisition Thresholds On the Way

On July 2, 2015, the FAR Council published a final rule, effective October 1, 2015, increasing the micro-purchase base threshold to $3,500 (from $3,000), that for use of simplified acquisition procedures for acquisition of commercial items to $7 million (from $6.5 million), the cost or pricing data threshold and the Cost Accounting Standard threshold to $750,000 (from $700,000), the prime contractor subcontracting plan floor to $700,000 (from $650,000), and the threshold for reporting first-tier subcontract information (including executive compensation) to $30,000 (from $25,000). The simplified acquisition threshold ($150,000) and the construction threshold ($1.5 million) will remain at current levels.
