      Link to the case:  http://www.gao.gov/decisions/bidpro/4040323.htm DIGEST (from GAO) 1. Protest is sustained where the awardee's proposal improperly took exception to the solicitation requirement to propose a fixed price. 2. Protest challenging the evaluation of the offerors' past performance is sustained where the record does not permit a meaningful review of whether the agency's evaluation was reasonable.

    Encouraging agencies to reduce waste by leveraging their "own buying power," the Administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy, Dan Gordon, issued guidance designed to reduce duplication in acquisitions by increasing interagency contracting and information sharing.  This came out as a memorandum to Chief Acquisition Officer and Senior Procurement Executives on September 29, 2011.  As we discuss in the video series, this represents the type of communication that successful contractors need to stay tuned in to.

       Yes, if the task order contains the FAR clause 52.217-8, Option to Extend Services (NOV 1999), then you may extend the period of performance by up to 6  months.
    romofelipe
    Thank you for a quick response.  However, the task order does not have the FAR clause 52.217-8 but the GSA Contract does.  Can I still extend for another year, plus add an option (1 year proiced option)?
    robertsheehan
    Answer to your question is likely contract specific.  I suggest you confer directly with the contracting officer for the Basic Contract you are working under.

    Did you know that the Office of Small Business was at the 2011 GSA EXPO in San Diego, CA?  We presented more than 6 classes and hosted a mini event we called the Small Business Symposium which had additional training and matchmaking.  We had a goal to provide a new and improved small business website, organization page and the much anticipated, finally updated, "Doing Business with GSA" publication.  Not to mention new marketing materials to boot!  We got it done and we are proud to share our website and publication updates with you.
