    Since the authority of FAR 13.5 expired on 1 JAN 2012, has authority been granted to extend the commercial test program beyond 1 JAN 2012, or is FAR 13.5 officially ended? If it has ended, what FAR part is now applicable to procuring commerical services above the Simplified Acquisition Threshold but below $6.5M?


    Answer

    The test program has ended. The memorandum announcing its termination can be found at this link. FAR Part 15 (in combination with FAR Part 12) procedures would be used in its place for most procurements.
