Effective immediately, for DoD acquisitions of supplies or services funded by DoD appropriations, contracting officers and other individuals delegated micro-purchase authority shall use the special emergency procurement authorities as set forth in the definitions and procedures provided in the attachment to this class deviation. This deviation implements 41 U.S.C. 1903, as amended by sections 816 and 1641 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 (Pub. L. 114-328). Section 816 increases the micro-purchase threshold and the simplified acquisition threshold for acquisitions that facilitate international disaster assistance or are in support of response to an emergency or major disaster. Section 1641 incorporates defense against or recovery from cyber attack as an additional basis for special emergency procurement authority. This class deviation rescinds and supersedes Class Deviation 2017-O0006, dated July 13, 2017, in order to harmonize the various changes to the definition of "micro-purchase threshold."
This class deviation is effective until it is incorporated in the FAR and DFARS or is otherwise rescinded.
