Section G
Threshold Adjustment Formulas
Section H
Threshold Adjustment Formula
1. In calculating the value of a contract for the purpose of ascertaining whether the procurement is covered by this Chapter, an entity shall include the maximum total estimated value of the procurement over its entire duration, taking into account all options, premiums, fees, commissions, interest and other revenue streams or other forms of renumeration provided for in such contracts.

2. The calculations referred to in Annex 9.1, Sections (A) through (C) that specifically referenced this paragraph shall be made in accordance with the following:

(a) the U.S. inflation rate shall be measured by the Producer Price Index for Finished Goods published by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics;

(b) the first adjustment for inflation, to take effect on January 1, 2004, shall be calculated using the period from November 1, 2001 through October 31, 2003;

(c) all subsequent adjustments shall be calculated using two-year periods, each period beginning November 1, and shall take effect on January 1 of the year immediately following the end of the two-year period;

(d) the United States shall notify Chile of the adjusted threshold values no later than November 16 of the year before the adjustment takes effect;

(e) the inflationary adjustment shall be estimated according to the following formula:

 

1. In calculating the value of a contract for the purpose of ascertaining whether a procurement is covered by this Chapter, a procuring entity shall include the maximum total estimated value of the procurement over its entire duration, taking into account all options, premiums, fees, commissions, interest, and other revenue streams, or other forms of remuneration provided for in such contracts.

2. The thresholds in Sections A through C shall be adjusted at two-year intervals with each adjustment taking effect on January 1, beginning on January 1, 2006.

3. With regard to the thresholds for goods and services in Section A, the United States shall calculate the U.S. dollar value for the threshold every two years, based on the U.S. inflation rate measured by the Producer Price Index for Finished Goods published by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, using the two-year period that ends on October 31 in the year prior to the adjustment taking effect, and using the following formula:

 

T0 x (1+ Πi) = T1

T0 = threshold value at base period
Πi = accumulated U.S. inflation rate for the ith two year-period
T1 = new threshold value.

T0 x (1+ ΠI) = T1

T0 = threshold value at base period
Πi = accumulated U.S. inflation rate for the ith two-year period
T1 = new threshold value.

 

(f) Chile shall calculate and convert the value of the thresholds applicable to this paragraph into Chilean currency using the conversion formula set out in subparagraph (g). Chile shall notify the United States of the value in its currency of the newly calculated thresholds no later than one month before the thresholds take effect; and

 

 

(g) Chile shall use for its calculation the official conversion rate of the Central Bank of Chile (Banco Central de Chile). Its conversion rate shall be the existing value of the Chilean currency in terms of U.S. dollars as of December 1 and June 1 of each year, or the first working day thereafter. The conversion rate as of December 1 shall apply from January 1 to June 30 of the following year, and as of June 1 shall apply from July 1 to December 31 of that year.

3. The calculations referred to in Annex 9.1, Sections (A) through (C) that specifically referenced this paragraph shall be made in accordance with the following:

(a) Chile shall calculate and convert the value of the thresholds applicable to this paragraph into its national currency using the conversion rates published by the IMF in its monthly “International Financial Statistics”. Chile shall notify the United States without delay of the methodology used and the results of its calculations;

(b) the conversion rates shall be the average of the daily values of the respective national currency in terms of the Standard Drawing Right (SDR) over the two-year period preceding October 1 or November 1 of the year prior to the thresholds in national currency becoming effective, which shall be from January 1;

(c) thresholds shall be fixed for two years, i.e. calendar years for all Parties where the fiscal year (1 April-31 March) will be used; and

(d) the Parties agree that if a major change in a national currency vis-a-vis the SDR during a year were to create a significant problem with regard to the application of the Chapter, they shall consult as to whether an interim adjustment is appropriate.

4. The thresholds for construction services in Section A and the thresholds in Sections B and C are conversions into U.S. dollars of the thresholds listed in the U.S. Appendix 1 to the WTO Agreement on Government Procurement, which are set out in Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) and listed below. The United States shall calculate adjustments of these thresholds based on an average of the daily conversion rates of the U.S. dollar in terms of SDRs, published by the IMF in its monthly "International Financial Statistics," for the two-year period preceding October 1 or November 1 of the year before the adjusted thresholds are to take effect:

(a) 5 million SDRs for construction services;
(b) 355,000 SDRs for goods and services for Section B entities; and
(c) 400,000 SDRs for goods and services for Section C, List B entities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


5. The United States shall notify the other Parties of the adjusted threshold values in December of the year before the adjusted thresholds take effect.

6. Except for El Salvador, which shall use the value expressed by the United States in U.S. dollars, each Party shall:
(a) convert the adjusted thresholds values notified by the United States under paragraph 4 into its national currency based on the official conversion rate of its central bank, using the average of the daily values of its currency in terms of the U.S. dollar over the two-year period ending September 30 of the year in which the United States notifies the adjusted thresholds; and (b) promptly notify the other Parties of the value in its currency of the adjusted thresholds.

7. The Parties shall consult bilaterally if a major change in a national currency vis-à-vis the other currency were to create a significant problem with regard to the application of the Chapter.
