The Architect of the Capitol invites comments on the proposed small business set-aside program for use with small purchases awarded by the Architect of the Capitol. DATES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments on or before November 5, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lisa Russell (Procurement Division), 202– 226–1407, e-mail: smallbusiness@aoc.gov. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The AOC is interested in adopting a small business set-aside program that includes many of the procedural principles contained inthe Small Business Act and as implemented in 13 CFR Part 121, 13 CFR Part 124, 13 CFR Part 125, 13 CFR Part 126, and 13 CFR Part 134. This program is proposed for use in conjunction with the AOC’s existing procurement authority for small purchases. The AOC is not subject to the Administrative Procedure Act, however, the AOC Procurement Division seeks to solicit public comment on the new proposed program. The AOC’s threshold for small purchases is $100,000. The AOC is considering whether to limit each acquisition of supplies or services that has an anticipated dollar value greater than $5,000 but not exceeding $100,000 to small business concerns. Purchases less than $100,000 is one of the exceptions to the AOC’s full and open competition requirement as noted under its procurement statute 41 U.S.C. 5 and as revised by 41 U.S.C. 6a–1 and 2 U.S.C. 1821. The AOC’s policy for purchases of $5,000 and less is to treat them in the same manner as micropurchases in accordance with FAR Part 13.2. We believe this contemplated policy to limit each acquisition of supplies or services that has an anticipated dollar value greater than $5,000 but not exceeding $100,000 to SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice of Meeting.
