DoD Changes TINA Threshold

E-mail Print PDF

The 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) changed the threshold at which certified cost or pricing data was required to be obtained. We told you about it. Several times. We ranted about it. Several times. The statute was revised such that the threshold was increased from $750,000 to $2 million.

On April 13, 2018, the DoD issued a Class Deviation that aligns the FAR with the revisions to the underlying statute. The Class Deviation also acknowledges that the CAS coverage threshold is now $2 million as well.

All this is good news.

As we have urged (several times), you should revise your policies and procedures to require certified cost or pricing data only from subcontractors whose proposals are in excess of the new threshold. You should administer CAS only on subcontracts whose value is in excess of the new threshold.

The changes go into effect for DoD on July 1, 2018, according to the Class Deviation.



In March 2009, Nick Sanders’ article “Surviving Government Audits: Have the Rules of Engagement Changed?” was published in Government Contract Costs, Pricing & Accounting Reports (4 No. 2 GCCPAR P. 11). Apogee Consulting, Inc. is proud to announce that Mr. Sanders’ article was selected for reprint and publication in Thomson West’s The New Landscape of Government Contracting.  Mr. Sanders, Apogee Consulting’s Principal Consultant, joins such distinguished contributors as Professors Steven Schooner and Christopher Yukins, Luis Victorino and John Chierachella, Joseph West and Karen Manos, Joseph Barsalona and Philip Koos and Richard Meene, and several others.  The text covers a lot of ground, ranging from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to Business Ethics and Corporate Compliance, and includes several articles on the False Claim Act and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.  In addition, the text includes the full text of many statutory and regulatory matters affecting Government contract compliance.
