The Procurement Policy Service (PPS) has compiled a complete listing of all acquisition related Information Letters (ILs) and sorted them by Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and VA Acquisition Regulation (VAAR) parts in the tables below.  Our office is in the process of reviewing all active ILs as we update the VAAR and create the VA Acquisition Manual (VAAM).  A chronological listing (by issued date) of all ILs issued by the Office of Acquisition and Logistics may be accessed in the Resource Library.

Download a list of ILs that have been rescinded or otherwise determined to be obsolete.  If access to a rescinded/inactive IL is required, please contact the individual(s) listed in Acquisition Policy Flash! 16-14 for your respective organization.
