    I am a Contracting NCO in the US Army Is a Commerciality D&F required for acquisitions below $1 million. If so, where is the information found? Thank you.


    Answer

    The DoD standard is in fact $1 million. Yet another source supporting this is DFARS 212.102, which explicitly mentions the $1 million threshold. It's possible your KO is misinterpreting AFARS 5112.102(a)(i)(A)(iv), which states "Contracting officers shall include as part of the contract file full documentation supporting the rationale used as the basis for the commerciality determination." That language implements the corresponding DFARS content and simply emphasizes the need to fully document commercial item determinations for acquisitions above $1 million.
