FAR RIN: 9000-AO25 Publication ID: Fall 2021 
Title: Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR); FAR Case 2021-007, Maximum Award Price for Certain Sole Source Manufacturing Contracts 

DoD, GSA, and NASA are amending the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to implement section 864 of the William M. (Mac) Thornberry National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021. Section 864 amends the Small Business Act by modifying the maximum award price for sole source manufacturing contracts to $7 million for the 8(a), Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB), Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone), and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) programs. This rule will change the current FAR thresholds for the 8(a) and HUBZone programs from $7.5 million to the statutory threshold of $7 million. The thresholds for the WOSB and SDVOSB programs will remain unchanged at the current FAR $7 million threshold.
