Reference: DPAP Memo, 09/25/2015 -- http://www.acq.osd.mil/dpap/policy/policyvault/USA004499-15-DPAP-OSBP.pdf

Summary: This memorandum rescinds the Director, Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy and Director, Office of Small Business Programs dual signed memorandum dated July 11, 2012. The July 2012 memo had temporarily lowered to $3,000 the threshold for use of the DD Form 2579, Small Business Coordination Record, for documenting the contracting officer#39;s reason for not setting aside the procurement of goods or services below the simplified acquisition threshold (SAT) for small business and coordinating that determination with the contracting activity small business specialist. Officers must follow the DFARS which requires use of the DD Form 2579 for procurements of $10,000 except those under the SAT. Further details are provided within the memorandum.
