Late Acquisition Process Memo and Form New!
NOTICE: 2016 Acquisition Cutoff Dates Apply to NOAALink Requirements
In order to meet fiscal year 2016 acquisition deadlines, you must route your requisition in C.Request to the NOAALink Program Office (NPO) at least five (5) business days prior to the acquisition cutoff dates published on the AGO website. NPO will approve requisitions according to our established process; however, your acquisition office may return C.Requests if a late acquisition memo is required. See the AGO FY16 Late Acquisition and Grants Request Memorandum for more information.
The timing of your requisition must also be compliant with Procurement Administrative Lead Time (PALT). PALT is set forth in the Commerce Acquisition Manual Section 1307.1, Appendix C and should be considered in the context of the cutoff dates.
Until an acquisition strategy is determined by AGO (i.e., core contract award, GSA order, GWAC, stand-alone negotiated contract, etc.), all NOAALink customers must assume the earliest relevant cutoff date applies.
