Wright-Patterson AFB OH 45433-5006

SUBJECT: Interim Policy Letter (IPL) 96-020

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 This Interim Policy Letter will be superseded by an AFMCAC published at a later date.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 changes AFMCFARS Figure 5306-4 by revising the required signature levels resulting from ASAF(A)’s approval of our Operation Thunder-Boom initiative and by deleting the terms “Major, Selected, and Other Programs” which were abolished as part of that initiative. Delete AFMCFARS Figure 5306-4 and replace it with revised AFMCFARS Figure 5306-will 4 attached hereto. In addition, delete AFMCFARS 5306.304-90(b)(90).

2. This IPL further changes AFMCFARS 5353.2, Prescription of forms, as follows: Delete AFMC Form 551, Individual Justification and Authority for Other Than Full and Open Competition (Replenishment Spares up to $10M-Exception 1), because its prescribing paragraph 5306.303-2(a)(92), no longer provides for its use, allowing instead for local formats to be utilized for J&As for less than $50M.

3. 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.
