New contracting dollar thresholds were released in the FAR due to inflation and are effective as of October 1, 2020.  The revised FAR thresholds apply immediately regardless of when SBA issues its direct final rule.  With that being said, a direct final rule will likely be issued in the coming weeks which will revise the SBA regulations to match. WOSB sole source thresholds were also increased to the amounts below and an update to the regulation will follow as well.
 
Please note the following increases:
  •  
  • sole-source thresholds in the 8(a) program to $7.5 million for manufacturing contracts and $4.5 million for all other contracts (previously $7 million and $4 million, respectively);
  • threshold for subcontracting plans to $750,000 (previously $700,000) on contracts other than construction. The threshold for construction contracts remains $1.5 million;
  • threshold to require a justification for a sole-source 8(a) award to $25 million (previously $22 million). Note that DoD applies a $100 million threshold for these justifications;
  • sole-source thresholds in the HUBZone program to $7.5 million for manufacturing contracts and $4.5 million for all other contracts (previously $7 million and $4 million, respectively);
  • sole-source threshold in the SDVOSB program to $7 million for manufacturing contracts (previously $6.5 million). The sole-source threshold for SDVOSB awards for all other contracts remains at $4 million
  • WOSB thresholds were also increased to $7M and $4.5M (previously $6.5M/$4M in WOSB’s new rule, which is effective 10/15).
