TITLE VIII--ACQUISITION POLICY, ACQUISITION MANAGEMENT, AND RELATED MATTERS

P. L. 108-375

House Conference Report 108-767

SEC. 815.  INCREASED THRESHOLD FOR SENIOR PROCUREMENT EXECUTIVE APPROVAL OF USE OF PROCEDURES OTHER THAN COMPETITIVE PROCEDURES.

Section 2304(f)(1)(B) of title 10, United States Code, is amended by striking $50,000,000 both places it appears and inserting $75,000,000.

The Senate amendment contained a provision (sec. 811(a)) that would raise from $50.0 million to $75.0 million the threshold in section 2304 (f) (1) (B) (iii) of title 10, Untied States Code, for requiring approval of the senior procurement executive of an agency to award contracts under other than competitive procedures.

The House bill contained no similar provision.

The House recedes.

Section 811(b) of the Senate amendment is addressed elsewhere in this conference report.

Senate Report 108-260

The committee recommends a provision that would: (1) raise from $50.0 million to $75.0 million the threshold in section 2304(f)(1)(B)(iii), title 10, United States Code, for requiring approval of the senior procurement executive of an agency to award contracts under other than competitive procedures; and (2) increase from $500,000 to $1.0 million the threshold in section 2416(d), title 10, United States Code, at which contractors must provide to cooperative agreement holders a listing of the names and contact information of each contractor employee who has authority to enter into contracts, including subcontracts. The new thresholds are designed to ease administrative burdens, while adjusting the originally enacted thresholds for inflation.
