      Link to the case:   http://www.gao.gov/decisions/bidpro/4044792.htm DIGEST (from GAO) 1. Protest that solicitation seeking fixed prices for electronic travel management service imposes excessive risk on offerors is denied where solicitation does not have an unlimited scope of work and provides sufficient information on which offerors can base their prices.

       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)?

    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.

    First I would like to thank everyone for commenting and sharing their thoughts on the site.  It is my opinion that it would be wisest to caution against any absolute yes or no answers.  The acquisition rules and regulations can often be complex...Read More

    My clients see this so often, especially in GSA eBuy, where the RFP is let under a particular SIN (say, for example, 874-1) but has a whole section of the SOW that is clearly IT-related. Clients become a little gun-shy when they are directed to provide a...Read More

    The attached PDF is a collection of online resources referenced throughout the webinar that will help you understand how to get noticed by potential buyers, stay relevant, and improve your marketing/business development efforts. This list includes various resources within GSA that offer alternative channels other than Schedules to sell products and/or services to government customers. In addition, there is a complete list of  live links to government-related media outlet websites, social media sites, associations and forums, and conferences.

    why is it a mystery for a vendor to get on schedule    we send a step by step letter and then nothing  and why is there a vendor support center and why is it so difficult for vendors to contact their contracting officer?

    Has the maximum order threshold (MOT) been completely replaced by the SAT?  Does the SAT rule apply even if the MOT is less than the SAT?
    MAS Blogger
    The Maximum Order Threshold (MOT) has only been replaced by the Simplified Acquisition Threshold (SAT) in the ordering procedures prescribed by FAR 8.405. In other words, if ordering off an FSS Schedule or FSS BPA, the MOT is no longer the threshold that...Read More

    I have recently joined the Sustainability in Procurement Fellows which is led by Nancy Gillis and is helping immensely in expanding my knowledge of the topic to be a resource for small business.  The Executive Order (E.O.) 13514 is pushing Federal buyers to make sustainable acquisitions.  What this means for small business is that some procurements will have requirements and standards as to what the government considers green.  Vendors who are currently calling themselves green may not be viewed that way by government buyers in the near future.

    YES! Brad and I have said the answer to this question has been no for years.  Well, now as a result of the Small Business Act of 2010 and FAR Case 2011-024, the answer is a resounding yes. It is now optional for agencies to set-aside acquisitions for small business.  For additional information: Click Here.
