    Does this mean any modification to a contract over $10,000 or just out of scope modifications over $10,000. What if you are closing out a contract and you have to deobligate an amount over $10k. Does that count as well.


    Answer

    Your question has already been asked and answered through AAP.  Per the FAR, a DD 2579 is not required for procurements under $10K; however, always check to see if you have agency specific guidelines. Please see previous AAP response below.


    Per a previous response to an AAP question at:
    https://dap.dau.mil/aap/pages/search.aspx?q=DD 2579
    FAR 19.201 directs that each agency head must appoint a Director of Small and Small Disadvantaged Business Utilization (SADBU) to work with the Procurement Center Representative (PCR) to perform an array of functions and duties in sections 8, 15, and 31 of the Small Business Act. SADBUs are charged with making with making recommendations in accordance with agency procedures as to whether a particular acquisition should be awarded under subpart 19.5 as a small business set-aside, under 19.8 as a Section 8(a) award, or under 19.13 as a HUBZone set-aside. DFARS 219.201 identifies the DD Form 2579, the Small Business Coordination Record, as the prescribed document for coordination between SADBUs and the Small Business Administration, regarding reviews of each acquisition over $10,000 for set-aside for small business. This review and coordination process helps to ensure that each organization is taking a proactive approach in its support of small business program goals.
    Rationale: FAR 19.201 and DFARS 219.201 (10) (A) (B). "
    Since the acquisition value would be less than $10,000, the DD 2579 is not required.

    Since the acquisition value would be less than $10,000, the DD 2579 is not required.  I realize you are Air Force and the information is guidance from the Army regarding the DD2579, but it is still relevant to your question.
