Special emergency procurement authorities and DFARS class deviation (Sept. 2, 2005).

The under secretary of defense for acquisition, technology and logistics authorized the use of special emergency procurement authorities increasing the micro-purchase, the simplified acquisition, and the test program for commercial items thresholds for the procurements in support of Hurricane Katrina relief efforts. In addition, the acting director for Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy approved a DFARS class deviation authorizing the use of the Government Purchase Card by contracting officers supporting Hurricane Katrina relief efforts for purchases over $15,000, up to $250,000. The memo includes the applicable conditions and laws that must be complied with. Both memos are available at <http://www.acq.osd.mil/dpap/general/hurricane_katrina_relief.htm>.
