    There is a FAR requirement that J&As get posted 15 days after contract action. Does this apply to sole source actions under the SAT threshold?


    Answer

    FAR 6.305-2(a) states: "The agency shall make publicly available the justification required by 6.303-1 as required by 10 U. S.C. 2304(l) and 41 U.S.C. 3304(f). Except for the circumstances in paragraphs (b) and (c) of this section, the justification shall be made publicly available within 14 days after contract award." However, FAR 6.001(a) tells us that FAR part 6 does not apply to "contracts awarded using the simplified acquisition procedures of part  13 (but see 13.501 for requirements pertaining to sole source acquisitions of commercial products or commercial services, under subpart  13.5)." Furthermore, FAR 5.202(a)(13)(i) provides for a simplified acquisition threshold exception to the synopsis requirements of FAR 5.201.
