    If the primary contractor submits a proposal and is a schedule holder is the subcontractor required to be a schedule holder or does it matter?

    Hi Wanda,My understanding is as long as the prime is a schedule holder it does not matter if the subcontractor is also a schedule holder. Many of my clients who are GSA schedule holders will team together and the firm that holds the contract under the...Read More

    The Title of the Memo is a bit long, but the content is important, and worth reading.  Especially note the part that says Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy (DPAP) is requiring that all departments addressed in the memo will conduct a review of 100 sample contract actions to make sure they comply with the requirements.

    If a solicitation is reserved for Federal Supply Schedule vendors must be the solicitation  be restricted to only one Federal Supply Group (for example, Group 70 only, MOBIS only, etc.)?  Or can solicitations allow any Federal Supply Schedule contractor to quote using their federal supply schedule, not matter what FSG they are in?  Where is this written in regulation or guidance?

    Contractors that are eligible to respond to a Schedule requirement are those whose Schedule contracts cover the scope of the requirement. So for example, if the RFQ is covered by the scope of Schedule 70, only Schedule 70 contractors would be eligible to...Read More

    Thank you for attempting to answer the question. Unfortunately, this does not address all of the concerns.  In many cases, more than one schedule group covers the requirements.  Therefore, my quesiton is this, because contractors continually...Read More

     MAS schedules are covered by FAR Part 8 .4 and those requiring a SOW follow 8.405-2...  There is nothing in there, I believe, that ever limits competition to one schedule or one SIN - however a CO may do this.. I have seen SOWs sent to various...Read More
