Acquisition Policy Flash! 19-08

What's Changed?

Notification of VA Acquisition Manual (VAAM) Update 2019-02 to VAAM part M836

Purpose:  The purpose of this Acquisition Policy Flash is to notify the VA acquisition workforce of the issuance of revisions to VAAM part M836.205-70(a), Statutory cost limitations, and associated sections; as well as VAAM M836.602-2(a)(5), Evaluation boards.

VAAR/VAAM Parts Impacted:  VAAM part M836.

Effective Date:  Immediately

Expiration Date:  N/A

Background:  Public Law 115-182 revised the statutory limit for a VA major medical facility project from $10,000,000 to $20,000,000. Therefore, VAAM part M836.205-70(a), Statutory cost limitations and associated sections are changed to reflect this increase. VAAM 836.602-2(a)(5) is also being revised to change Nondisclosure “Certification” to Nondisclosure “Agreement,” to more closely align with the Federal Acquisition Regulation term of use.

Applicability:  This Acquisition Policy Flash applies to all VA acquisition workforce members.

Action Required:  The VA acquisition workforce shall comply with the requirements of the published VAAM Update 2019-02.

Additional Information:  Questions or concerns should be addressed to the Office of Acquisition and Logistics (003A), Procurement Policy and Warrant Management Service (PPS) (003A2A) at va.procurement.policy@va.gov..
