Operation Inherent Resolve

The following are contingency contracting memorandums issued by the Office of the Secretary of Defense to promulgate policy and information regarding Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR).

Contingency Procurement Authorities:

As of 14 Sep 2014:  The Secretary of Defense designated operations in Iraq and Syria as a contingency operation in accordance with Title 10 USC 101(a)(13). When awarding contracts outside the United States to be performed outside the United States or for purchases made outside the United States in support of these operations, apply increased contingency acquisition thresholds at the FAR 2.101(b) definition of "micro-purchase threshold" ($30,000) and "simplified acquisition threshold" ($1,000,000), and at FAR 13.5(e) for Test Program for Certain Commercial Items ($12,000,000) with an effective date of September 14, 2014. These thresholds only apply for contracts awarded and performed or purchases made outside the United States. In the case of any contract to be awarded and performed or purchase to be made inside the United States in support of these operations, apply increased "micro-purchase threshold" of $15,000 and "simplified acquisition threshold" of $300,000. The Test Program Threshold for Certain Commercial Items remains at $12,000,000.

Additional guidance for use of the purchase card during Contingency, Emergency, and Humanitarian Aid Operations may be found in Appendix B of the DoD charge Card Guide book found at http://www.acq.osd.mil/dpap/pdi/pc/
