    So - you all know that FAR 8.002 gives the ranking of priority for acquiring supplies within the government.  Number 2 on that list?  Excess inventory from other agencies!!  Can you get any greener than re-using property that other agencies no longer have a use for?  And now, GSA Property Management has even launched a 'Carbon Footprint Tool'  that provides you with a measure of how you have helped the environment.  It's included in GSAXcess®, GSA AuctionsSM, Computers for Learning [CFL], Energy Asset Disposal System [EADS] and the Agency Asset Management S

       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.

    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)?

    Brad,What I find interesting about this post is that the letter that GSA sent to AIMS Schedule contractors announcing the new SIN did not include any reference to the COMPETES Act...thanks for bringing this information to my attention.

    Hi Jenn -It must have been a simple oversight because I took my information straight from their promotional materials where the Act is prominently featured.
    Dan Briest
    Thanks Jen.  Let us know if you have any additional questions.
