Contracting with NAN

The New York District is ready to do business, on a competitive basis, with competent firms that can supply the products or services it needs. District purchasing activities are particularly interested in establishing contacts with small business firms, small disadvantaged business firms, women-owned small business firms, and firms in labor surplus areas.

Contracting carries out many types of missions for the New York District such as construction projects, A-E services, and requirements procured under the simplified acquisition threshold. For supplies and services $2,500 or less, the IMPACT (VISA) card is our primary method of purchasing. For items between $2,500.00 and $25,000.00, Electronic Commerce/Electronic Data Interchange (ECI/EDI) is the primary method of procurement. All actions over $25,000 are advertised in the Commerce Business Daily.

The basic contracting rules for all Federal Government agencies are set forth in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR). Additional rules unique to DoD are set forth in the DoD FAR Supplement (DFARS) and Army Federal Acquisition Regulation (AFARS).
