Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement: Inflation Adjustment of Acquisition-Related Thresholds (DFARS Case 2014-D025)
Document Number: 2014-26266
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-11-06
Agency: Defense Acquisition Regulations System, Department of Defense
DoD is proposing to amend the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to further implement the U.S.C. statute on inflation adjustment of acquisition-related dollar thresholds. This statute requires an adjustment every five years of acquisition-related thresholds for inflation using the Consumer Price Index for all urban consumers, except for the Construction Wage Rate Requirements statute (Davis-Bacon Act), Service Contract Labor Standards statute, and trade agreements thresholds. DoD is also proposing to use the same methodology to adjust some nonstatutory DFARS acquisition-related thresholds in 2015.
