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

P. L. 108-375

House Conference Report 108-767

SEC. 816.  INCREASED THRESHOLD FOR APPLICABILITY OF REQUIREMENT FOR DEFENSE CONTRACTORS TO PROVIDE INFORMATION ON SUBCONTRACTING AUTHORITY OF CONTRACTOR PERSONNEL TO COOPERATIVE AGREEMENT HOLDERS.

Section 2416(d) of title 10, United States Code, is amended by striking $500,000 and inserting $1,000,000.

The House bill contained a provision (sec. 805) that would increase from $500,000 to $1 million the threshold in section 2406(d) of 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 Senate amendment contained a similar provision  (sec. 811 (b)).

The Senate recedes.

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

House Report 108-491

This section would amend section 2416(d) of title 10, United States Code, by raising the $0.5 million reporting requirement to $1.0 million. Currently, the Secretary of Defense is required to provide some basic contractor information to certain organizations on contracts that have a value of $0.5 million or more.

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 The new thresholds are designed to ease administrative burdens, while adjusting the originally enacted thresholds for inflation.
