  1. Well, what's the other system?
  2. Why does this set aside category exist outside of a regular SDVOSBs et-aside requirement on certain sites like fedbid.com? Maybe I don't understand the process...I guess federal government does not have a unified agreement on who is and isn't SDVOSB or is it something else?
  3. Not sure if this is in the right place to post this: Could someone direct me toward information concerning which agencies and departments are exempt from FAR authority? I'm trying to find additional information, but I'm running out of luck.
  4. I was directed by the wifcon admin to post more "low brow" or common questions here, but if I am in error, I will amend it in the future. Thank you, Brian and Vern both, for the direction and advice. To clarify both scenarios are "sealed bidding". The second scenario, where bids are opened and posted publicly, as I understand, would not normally happen in a federal contracting situation, as we do not see other bids normally(I was using a local government scenario in my mind and seeing how it would differ in the federal setting). Thanks again, I have a lot of reading to do.
  5. New here, just wanted to say hello to everyone. Just a guy from a small, newly certified SDVOSB, trying to learn how all this fedgov contracting works. This is an excellent resource for research; I'm forever indebted to the contracting gods..haha; Anyways, I thought I'd post this probably common question to the board:..breaking the ice and all. Is there legislation that enables buyers to alter contracts before award, but after bidding closure? I'm just going to assume this is a common occurence, but I'm having trouble locating literature on the subject. Related to this scenario: Bidding ends, 3 or more proposals listed on a bid tabulature, solicitation is reinstated with an amendment changing the bid deadline. I look forward to getting to know you guys, learning as much as a can, and becoming a part of this community.
