The increase to DoD’s micro-purchase threshold mandated by the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act is now in effect.

A Class Deviation issued earlier this month provides, effective immediately, that the DoD micro-purchase threshold is $5,000 for many acquisitions.

The new micro-purchase threshold is $1,500 higher than the standard $3,500 micro-purchase threshold.  But there are a few exceptions.

The micro-purchase threshold for certain DoD basic research programs and science and technology reinvention laboratories increases to a whopping $10,000.  However, micro-purchase thresholds below $5,000 remain in effect for certain acquisitions described in the micro-purchase definition under FAR 2.101.

Many contracting officers and contractors have been awaiting the micro-purchase increase, which should increase the speed and efficiency of small DoD acquisitions.  The wait is over.
