Jurisdictional Thresholds

The infographic is designed to explain jurisdictional thresholds for federal contractors and subcontractors under Executive Order 11246, as amended (Executive Order); Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (Section 503); and the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended, 38 U.S.C. 4212 (VEVRAA). It includes the increase to Section 503’s coverage threshold from $10,000 to $15,000 and the VEVRRA’s recent increase from $100,000 to $150,000. The increases result from an inflationary adjustment statute that authorizes the Federal Acquisition Regulatory Council to review and adjust acquisition–related threshold amounts in statutes that apply to federal procurement.
