COMMITS NexGen Fair Opportunity Competitive Procedures 
In accordance with FAR 16.505, the fair opportunity to be considered competitive 
procedures for the COMMITS NexGen program is provided below.  
As an overview, the basic COMMITS NexGen fair opportunity competitive process 
begins when an information technology need is identified.  A performance based (when 
appropriate) Statement of Requirements (SOR), with source selection criteria is 
prepared.  Additionally, the requiring agency and Commerce Information Technology 
Solutions Office (CITS) define the roles and responsibilities of the government parties in 
a task order management plan.  The SOR is offered to the appropriate COMMITS 
NexGen contract holders according to tier to determine if they wish to submit a task

necessary resources to fully describe the technical requirements of the task, 
to ensure successful competition and award of the delivery order.  During this 
step the reimbursable charge to non DOC customers will be discussed.  The 
charge will be tailored to fit the amount of effort the customer requires of the 
CITS office to satisfy their requirement.  
Step 2:  
Address Scope Issues, if any
