Wright-Patterson AFB OH 45433-5006

SUBJECT: Interim Policy Letter (IPL) 96-018 27 Jun 96

EFFECTIVE DATE/IMPLEMENTATION: The AFMCFARS change included in this letter is effective immediately. This Interim Policy Letter will be superseded by an AFMCAC published at a later date. Ensure distribution to all Contracting Officers.

1. This IPL supersedes IPL 96-017 and implements an increase in the delegation amounts for Justification and Approval (J&A) Authority for Other Contracting actions which are not assigned to a PEO or DAC. The previous delegation was from $10M (+) and $25M. The new delegation is from $10M (+) and $50M. This change results from ASAF(A)’s approval of our Operation Thunder-Boom initiative.

2. This approval authority is redelegable; however, any redelegation shall be made in accordance with FAR 6.304(a)(3).

3. AFMCFARS 5306.304-90, Approval of the justification, para (b), is added to reflect the new delegations and amounts (Attachment 1). AFMCFARS 5306.304-90 para (b), which was transmitted by IPL 96-017, is deleted. AFMCFARS 5306.304, Approval of the justification, paras (a)(3)(i) thru (vii) and (a)(4)(91)(iv), are deleted to remove old (and now superseded) delegation and approval requirements. AFMCFARS 5306.304(a)(3)(90) is renumbered as 5306.304-90(b)(90). AFMCFARS 5306.304(a)(4)(90) is deleted and replaced by AFMCFARS 5306.304-90(b)(90).

4. If you have any questions, please call me or have your staff call my action officer, Ms. Linda Barber,

HQ AFMC/PKPA, DSN 787-4657.
