    IAW AFFARS 5307.107-2 Consolidation. The DAS(C) or ADAS(C) is the authority to make the consolidation determination for actions $2 million or greater and shall be submitted through the MAJCOM/DRU/AFRCO SCOs (or for AFLCMC and SMC, the SCCOs). The DAS(C) has delegated the authority to make the consolidation determination for actions less than $2 million to the MAJCOM/DRU/AFRCO SCOs (or for AFLCMC and SMC, the SCCOs). This authority may not be redelegated to other than an SCCO. The determination must include the acquisition strategy information required in FAR 7.107-2 FAR 7.107-2 only mentions requirements for a determination above $2 million. I understand the reason for getting an approval to consolidate contracts is required in order to justify the reason for potential elimination of small business competition. In our case, the total contract value is less than $150,000 and the scope of work is not going to eliminate any small business competition. Will we need SCCO approval for a contract in this low threshold that doesn't have the potential of eliminating competition?


    Answer

    Since this acquisition is $150k, which is less than the $2M threshold, you must rely on the guidance given at AFFARS 5307.107-2, and you will need SCCO approval. 

    The DAS(C) has delegated the authority to make the consolidation determination for actions less than $2 million to the MAJCOM/DRU/AFRCO SCOs (or for AFLCMC and SMC, the SCCOs). This authority may not be redelegated to other than an SCCO. The determination must include the acquisition strategy information required in FAR 7.107-2. The determination may be included in an AS/LCMP/Commodity Sourcing Strategy/AP when coordination of the consolidation determination approving official is accomplished as part of the AS/LCMP/Commodity Sourcing Strategy/AP approval process. When preparing these documents clearly identify the consolidation determination. Coordination on such documents by the DAS(C) or ADAS(C) is approval of the required documentation.
