Attachment J 1
Finally, the requesting activity with assistance of the CITS office will develop
a task order management plan. This plan will identify the specific
responsibilities of each party in performing contract administration functions.
The plan will further serve as a statement of work for any efforts to be
performed by the CITS office.
Release Statement of Requirements via Internet
In keeping with the CITS office's intent to minimize the flow of paper, the
requiring activity will send the completed SORs and source selection
evaluation criteria to the CITS office for electronic release to COMMITS
NexGen Contractors. The CITS office will use the COMMITS NexGen
website for release of the SOR, source selection criteria, and other
instructions to the COMMITS NexGen Contractors.
Each SOR will be offered to the identified COMMITS NexGen category
Contractors in accordance with the requirement for fair opportunity to be
considered as described in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR)
16.505(b). The CITS office cannot direct an award to a specific COMMTS
NexGen Contractor unless one of four exemptions in FAR 16.505(b)(2)
applies. These exemptions are:
1. The agency's need for such supplies or services is of such urgency
that providing such an opportunity would result in unacceptable
2. Only one such Contractor is capable of providing such supplies or
services required at the level of quality required because the supplies
or services ordered are unique or highly specialized.
3. The order should be issued on a sole source basis in the interest of
economy and efficiency as logical follow on to an order already issued
under the contract, provided that all awardees were given a fair
opportunity to be considered for the original order.
4. Necessary to satisfy a minimum order.
Respond to SOR
After release of the SOR via the Internet, those Contractors interested in
submitting a proposal will provide detailed proposals in accordance with the
suspense date provided and await Government evaluation.
