CONTACT THE CONTRACTING OFFICE BEFORE YOU PURCHASE AN ITEM THAT FALLS IN “THE GRAY AREA” Prohibited Purchases

27 Regional Contracting Center – KAFRegional Contracting Center – KAF Prohibited Purchases Unauthorized Purchases, if a purchase is deemed mission critical and urgent need/emergency contact the FOO Manager to determine it there are conditions under which the purchase may be approved. DO NOT “SPLIT REQUIREMENTS” TO STAY UNDER THRESHOLD – What does that mean, splitting requirements or split purchases? Split purchases occur when a FOO places two or more orders within a short period for the same, similar, or related materials or services to circumvent the established single purchase threshold per order limit.

28 Regional Contracting Center – KAFRegional Contracting Center – KAF Examples of Split Purchases A FOO makes multiple purchases from the same merchant on the same day, the total amount of the purchases exceeds the single purchase limit and the FOO knows the total requirement at the time of the first purchase A FOO makes multiple purchases of similar items from the same or multiple contractors, vendors, or other merchants over time; the FOO knows the total requirement at the time of the first purchase; and the total value of the multiple purchases exceeds the single purchase limit. Tip: Remember, as a FOO you cannot make everyone happy. The key to getting the most for Soldiers and avoiding a “no-pay-due” on your LES is by working with the contracting office and following the rules.
