Federal Acquisition Regulation; Inflation Adjustment of Acquisition-Related Thresholds
Document Number: 05-16971
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-12-12
Agency: General Services Administration, Agencies and Commissions, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Department of Defense
The Civilian Agency Acquisition Council and the Defense Acquisition Regulations Council (Councils) are proposing to amend the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to adjust acquisition-related thresholds for inflation. Section 807 of the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005 (Public Law 108-375) requires that the FAR Council periodically adjust all statutory acquisition-related dollar thresholds in the FAR for inflation, except the statute does not permit escalation of acquisition-related dollar thresholds established by the Davis-Bacon Act, the Service Contract Act, or trade agreements. This rule also proposes to amend other acquisition-related thresholds that are based on policy rather than statute. Inflation adjustment of Cost Accounting Standards (CAS) thresholds in the CAS regulations is simultaneously addressed in a separate case.

The Committee will hold meetings and make site visits as necessary to accomplish its responsibilities.

Consultants or subject matter experts may be called in on a temporary basis to assist or augment the Committee when unique or additional expertise is required. The Associate Administrator of the Space Operations Mission Directorate shall ensure a balanced representation in terms of the points of view represented and the functions to be performed.
