Outlined below are the upcoming changes associated with Solicitation 47QSMD20R0001 - Refresh # 6 and the mass mod:

2. Revise scope of MAS Solicitation to authorize only those drones approved through DIU’s Blue sUAS Program

 

3. Incorporate updated Service Contract Labor Standards (SCLS) Wage Determinations

 

4. Replace digital certificates with DocuSign for electronic signature of documents and FAS ID for authentication into eOffer/eMod, rendering digital certificates unnecessary
