Requesting Support

CIG Case Acceptance Thresholds

We will accept formal requests for prime commerciality reviews (FAR12) in excess of $1M. We will accept FAR15 / commercial subcontractor requests as long as the supplier exceeds $3M. For cases under our thresholds, we can assist you in asking the right questions and provide insights into the CIG thought process.

Commercial@DCMA.mil also operates as a help-desk; which may be used to ask any questions in regards to commercial acquisition. The CIG Director may choose to accept cases under the CIG threshold, under special circumstances.

Sharing Information

CID & Recommendation Upload Tool

We want PCOs to be able to submit CIDs they have made on parts & services, in an organized and systemic manner. We also welcome other agencies, or other DCMA offices to upload recommendations for commerciality they have made. These should be in a written format, with supporting rationale, in a PDF. As a result, please send CIDs and CIRs to Commercial@DCMA.mil and include as much information as possible such as:
  • Part number
  • NSN
  • Prime and subcontractor
  • CAGE codes
  • Description of the part
  • Research as to why you made the determination
